Comic Books Are Not Just For Kids Anymore

Pedro and Me Jacket.jpgIf you're over the age of 18 and enjoy reading comic books and graphic novels from publishers like Vertigo and Fantagraphics, come to a meeting of Not Just for Kids Anymore, The Washington Park Comic Book & Graphic Novel Book Club. Books that are read in this group are the equivalent of "Rated R" movies and are not appropriate for children. Intended for mature readers. This month's selection is Pedro & Me: Friendship, Loss, and What I Learned by Judd Winick. In this powerful and captivating graphic novel, Winick, a professional cartoonist and cast member of MTV's The Real World 3: San Francisco, pays tribute to his Real World
housemate and friend Pedro Zamora, an AIDS activist and educator who died of the disease in 1994.
