Plus Black Excellence and queer book clubs
Welcome to this week’s dashboard post, intended to keep you updated on all that’s happening at ol’ Fantom.
THIS WEEK’S EVENTS
Wednesday, February 22 – Pop Culture Uncovered live podcast – Join the PCU gang as they cover the latest in comics and geek culture in general, in a live podcast setting!
Thursday, February 23 – Black Excellence book club: Octavia Butler’s Kindred – Octavia Butler, one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time, just had her classic novel Kindred adapted as a graphic novel, so we’re gonna talk about it!
Friday, February 24 – Friday Night Magic – You know how we do.
Saturday, February 25 – Queer Book Club: Jughead – This month’s queer book club will be focusing on Jughead and asexuality, an underrepresented queer identity in media. Especially with rumors of the Riverdale TV series not including his asexuality in the story, representation is an interesting question to discuss.
ALSO SATURDAY – Trivia night – Join Fantom Comics for geeky trivia, booze and the chance to win The Gauntlet! Join as a team or individually.
Monday, February 27 – Comics & Cocktails at the Bier Baron as usual.
