Ladies' Night: Afar

"In a fantastical post-industrial desert, fifteen-year-old Boetema suddenly develops the ability to astral project to other planets while she sleeps. When she accidentally gets a young man hurt on a planet light-years away, she must figure out a way to project back to save him. On her own world, Boetema's two parents have temporarily left her and her thirteen-year-old brother, Inotu, to make a living as salt shepherds. Left to their own devices, the two siblings must flee across a dangerous desert when Inotu gets into trouble with a threatening cyborg bodyguard. As Boetema visits amazing planets and encounters vibrant cultures, she must confront her mistakes and learn to trust in Inotu as she navigates her newfound abilities."

What is Ladies' Night? On the first Friday of every month, we set aside three hours specifically for the purpose of welcoming women, nonbinary, and gender-fluid individuals to comics and geek culture. While we always strive to be a safe space for everyone who walks through our doors, we recognize that historically, some groups of people have not been made to feel welcome, and we aim to help fix that. This is not a "no boys allowed" event, as we remain open for business, and the point is to welcome, and not to exclude. That said, the safety and comfort of the group is paramount, and anyone who engages in cruelty or aggressive behavior will be asked to leave. These first Fridays are part book club and part social club. Every month, a book is chosen for discussion, and that book is available at a discount. Usually, we try out a craft project or board game. There are always plenty of laughs, and there is often cake.

November Book Club: Team-Up Edition! Joyride TP 1

November just does not have enough Fridays. Normally we would have two book clubs a month: the general book club and Ladies' Night. But we don't hate ourselves enough to schedule a book club on Black Friday, and it's a busy beginning of the month for a lot of folks.

But, we still want to have at least on night to talk about an awesome book! And that book is Joyride.

Joyride uses bright colors and fast-paced fun action to create this love letter to space adventure. It's one of the best comics coming out of Boom! Studios this year, and we were all stoked to find out it has been picked up as an ongoing series. 

The first volume includes the first four-issue story arc, following three young people swept up on a joyride into the stars, stars that they've never seen. 

The energy of this book is palpable from cover to cover. I highly recommend it, especially to fans of the animated Titan A.E. movie from awhile back. 

Until November 11th, get the first trade, cover price $9.99, at a 20% off discount when you purchase it through us. Read it and come back for Comic Book Club: Team-Up Edition on November 11th from 6pm-9pm.
