Join us as we explore the breadth and width of one of the most exciting, innovative, misunderstood, and spectacular art-forms in the world. Comic Book Club selections will represent the best that the medium has to offer, mediated to ensure fun, accessible, and thought provoking examinations and discussions by industry experts. All levels of comic book familiarity are welcome, from the seasoned veteran to the humble noob to the vaguely curious.

As always, we'll discuss your favorite recent comic book reads and our featured book of the month. January's book of the month is GIRL TOWN: Girl Town collects the Ignatz Award-winning stories "Radishes" and "Diana's Electric Tongue" together with several other tales of young adulthood and the search for connection. Here are her most acclaimed mini-comics and anthology contributions, enhanced with new colors and joined by brand-new work. On top of our regular book club program, we will have our very special guest, Girl Town creator CAROLYN NOWAK, at Comic Book Club for a Q & A session with special host, Nick Yribar [Super Skull Show]. Come prepared to interact with Carolyn about all your thoughts and inquiries on Girl Town!

Bold, infatuated, wounded, or lost, Nowak's girls shine with life and longing. Their stories, depicted with remarkable charm and insight, capture the spirit of our time.

GIRL TOWN is on sale at Vault of Midnight for 15% OFF all of January [while supplies last]. Don't forget; Vault of Midnight validates parking in the Z Parking Garage for up to two hours with any purchase.
