In conjunction with the exhibition "Art in the Age of the Internet, 1989 to Today," the U of M Museum of Art and Vault of Midnight partner to present a one-of-a-kind book club! Participants will read and discuss three comic books that explore the extreme possibilities of life in the age of the internet.
Join us in the Ultralounge, nestled deep within the catacombs of Vault of Midnight Ann Arbor, for a monthly discussion of the following titles: The Private Eye, Snot Girl, and Bitch Planet.
Sun, 3/10 from 2-4p
Bitch Planet Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnick
In a future just a few years down the road in the wrong direction, a woman's failure to comply with her patriarchal overlords will result in exile to the meanest penal planet in the galaxy. When the newest crop of fresh femmes arrive, can they work together to stay alive or will hidden agendas, crooked guards, and the deadliest sport on (or off!) Earth take them to their maker?
Pick and choose your favorites, or come to the whole series! All levels of comic book familiarity are welcome, from the seasoned veteran to the humble noob to the vaguely curious. Books will be available for sale at Vault of Midnight leading up to each meeting.
