Comic Books Are Not Just For Kids Anymore.

PrideOfBaghdad.jpegIf 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 will be read in this group are the equivalent of "Rated R" movies and are not appropriate for children. Selections for this club are intended for mature readers (18+). This month's selection is Pride of Baghdad by Brian K. Vaughan & Niko Henrichon. Inspired by an account of U.S. soldiers encountering lions who had escaped from the Baghdad Zoo in the spring of 2003, Vaughan and Henrichon tell a story of four lions who are happy to be free but remain unsure what exactly to do with that freedom. The lions debate and philosophize as they wander the war-ravaged streets of Iraq's capital, recalling the loquacious livestock of George Orwell's Animal Farm. Check with a librarian to reserve your copies today!
