Thought this book was great.  The second in the series was a lil bit of a tougher read to me and not as enjoyable as the first.  But the first...great read.

I'm so far behind on Miss Peregrine. I have the second book but I've never read it.

Today I started Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan, and, like, what is it with books I've read this year and people's dogs getting killed? This is the third one so far, and the second one in the past couple of months.

I just finished reading Ready Player One.  I liked the movie better version.  The two aren't the same.  It's like an outline was handed out and two different authors wrote stories based on that.  The movie version in my opinion was better storytelling.

Comic-Con has been hosting seven Graphic Novel Book Clubs over the past five years, mainly in libraries around the San Diego County area (plus one at the future site of the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park). We’re going to be adding two new groups in early 2019—one in North County and one in South Bay—but in the meantime five of our existing clubs have some membership slots open. You don’t have to be a veteran comics reader to join … many of our members were curious about comics and took the plunge and now are graphic novel fans!

Applying for membership is easy … just download this form, fill it out and send it to [email protected] Please check whichever locations interest you; while, as a newcomer, you can join only one group, we’ll let you know which ones still have availability and help you find the one that matches your schedule and location. New memberships will begin in January 2019. The deadline to apply is Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.

The clubs meet in the evening once a month (some clubs skip July) and gather together for a giant potluck Holiday Party in December, where everyone reads the same book. Members must be 18 years of age or older, have a Comic-Con Member ID, and—obviously!—live in San Diego County to attend the meetings. Meetings last about 90 minutes; members are responsible for obtaining their own copies of the selected books, either via local comics shop, online, digitally, or from their local libraries. The members of each group decide what the group will read by pitching and voting on graphic novels.

There are five groups accepting members starting in January 2019. Wondering which club is best for you? Here’s some additional info:

    Downtown meets the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM
    Encinitas meets the first Thursday of every month at 6:30 PM
    La Jolla meets the second Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM
    Mission Valley meets the first Wednesday of every month 6:00 PM
    North Park meets the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30 PM

While there are openings in each of the five above-mentioned groups, memberships are extremely limited (no more than 20 people per group). This open enrollment period for existing groups ends on Friday, Dec. 14, so if you’re interested, get that form to us ASAP to be considered. The Comic-Con Graphic Novel Book Clubs offer a fun way to meet new like-minded comics fans and to discuss some of your favorite books … and you’ll definitely find some new faves (and make some new friends), too!

TWO NEW BOOK CLUBS IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY! Comic-Con Adds Two More Graphic Novel Book Clubs!

Comic-Con has been sponsoring seven graphic novel book clubs over the past few years, mainly in San Diego libraries (plus one at the future site of the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park), and we’re happy to announce that we’re adding two new groups to start off 2019, a new one in Chula Vista and a second club in Escondido!

You can join only one of these clubs, so pick the one that works best for you, location-wise.

Applying for membership is easy … just download this form and return it to us at [email protected] by Thursday, January 31. Please check whichever location interests you. Membership slots in both clubs are extremely limited. In order to have a fun and enjoyable discussion group, each Comic-Con Graphic Novel Book Club is limited to around 20 members.

The clubs meet in the evening once a month (some clubs skip July) and gather together for a giant potluck Holiday Party in December, where everyone reads the same book. Members must be 18 years of age or older, have a Comic-Con Member ID, and—obviously!—live in San Diego County to attend the meetings. Meetings last about 90 minutes; members are responsible for obtaining their own copies of the selected books, either via local comics shop, online, digitally, or from their local libraries.

This year marks the beginning of the sixth year for our flagship groups, Downtown and Mission Valley. North Park and La Jolla joined us in 2015, Encinitas and our first club in Escondido in 2017, and Balboa Park in 2018!

Wondering which club is best for you? Here’s some additional info:

    Chula Vista will meet the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 PM
    Escondido will meet the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30 PM

I'm reading Fall of Gondolin.  I feel like I already read all of it in unfinished tales and HoME. 

I have Scar by the Dyachenkos as my reading material for my plane trip to Asia on Thursday

Just finished reading Ready Player One. After watching the movie, the book is waaaaaaay better. I had no idea how different each medium was, but I understand why the changes had to be made to appeal to a more massive audience.

There are visual aspects as well. Playing a video game (especially a text game) isn't really that exciting to watch on a movie screen.

I'm working my way through Tom King's Batman Rebirth graphic novels. I gotta say, I'm not really liking them much...
