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, 1/20 from 2-4p
The Private Eye by Brian K. Vaughan
Years after the digital cloud "bursts" and exposes all of our worst secrets, THE PRIVATE EYE is set in an inevitable future where everyone has a secret identity. Following an unlicensed P.I. who is thrust into the most important case of his life, this sci-fi mystery explores the nature of privacy with frightening prescience.
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.
