For May’s Graphic novel group,we have chosen to discuss King City, a graphic novel of weird proportions written by Brandon Graham. The book itself was published by Tokyopop in 2007 and was nominated for an Eisner.

The book focuses on Joe, a catmaster with the ability to use cats as any tool or weapon he wants. The story also focuses on his best friend Pete, who falls in love with a alien he has to sell into slavery, and also his ex Anna, who watches her Xombie war veteran boyfriend turn into the drug he’s addicted.

Interestingly, Brandon Graham is also the writer of Prophet, a book we are hoping to discuss in a future #Mad_Gng.
As per usual, it would be appreciated if you bring a £2 donation for the Madlab, as well as a fiver if you are interested in ordering food Hope to see you there!!!

We are going to discuss Waltz with Bashir: A Lebanon War Story by Ari Folman and David Polonsky. The book tells the story of a post Lebanon war soldier trying to find the truth about what happened during an event in which hundred if not thousands of Palestinians were massacred. During his investigations, he finds a collective amnesia among friends and soldiers that he chooses to challenge.


As per usual, I recommend bringing a suggested donation for the Madlab of £2 and brings a fiver if you would like some food delivered. Hope to see many of you there:)


Also, we will use this meeting as a time to discuss getting a film night on for this book so hopefully there’s another incentive!!!

For September’s #Mad_Gng, we are discussing Tamara Drewe by Posy Simmonds. The book tells the story of multiple individuals living in a quiet village whose lives are all altered by the arrival of Tamara Drewe, a girl who once lived in the village but has come back transformed by plastic surgery, a new wardrobe and improved self-confidence. What follows are many an exciting incident and many individual are rocked by their experience of the events.
The series was originally serialised in the Guardian weekend magazine, one page at a time, in 2005 but has since been collected into a book format. It has also been translated into French, German and Swedish. Posy Simmonds has written multiple books including multiple children’s books and even film scripts.
As per usual, it would be appreciated if you bring a suggested donation of £2 for the Madlab, the wonderful community space at which our event takes place and maybe bring £5 if you are interested in getting food. I hope to see you all there:)
P.S. if any of you are on twitter, you can use the hashtag seen in the title to let everyone know about the group:)
