Events: Islington Comic Forum 2012/03


The Islington Comic Forum is a monthly meeting for anyone interesting in graphic novels and comic books. Meet and talk with other members. Hear recommendations. Tell us what you think. And a selection of over 100 hand-picked titles for you to borrow and take home. It's a little bit more chaotic than a book club but with the same sort of relaxed and open friendly atmosphere.

The next Islington Comic Forum is on: Tuesday the 27st of March / 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
Upstairs Hall at North Library Manor Gardens N7 6JX. Here is a map.

The Book of the Month is: V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd
If you get a chance please read it. You can reserve yourself a copy here. (For those of you that don't get the chance - don't worry - you can still come and join in with the discussions).

You can find us on facebook here. For more information (or if you have any questions) you can email us here . Come and join us. All welcome. We hope to see you there.

Drat! I was planning on coming along tonight, but didn't write down the address and thus (not very surprisingly) got to Holloway and couldn't find it! Shame really because I can bang on about V for Vendetta for hours. By the way, I recently read an excellent science fiction novel by Thomas M Disch called 'camp concentration' which was a huge influence on V for Vendetta; well worth checking out... oh well, i'll try again next month...

Rubbish! Would have be great to meet up with you in real life... Am reading the wikipedia page for Thomas M Disch now - never heard of him before but camp concentration sounds like a huge barrel of laughs. The V for Vendetta conversation was a little dry - although we did up making a few points about how America creates the like of Superman, Batman and Captain America while England's big superhero comic book characters are V (anti-social terrorist) and - well - Judge Dredd (totalitarian policeman): there is obviously something very very wrong with us.
