(comic) Book Club: Umbrella Academy

  • The Carcosa Club 444 South 5th Street Brooklyn, NY, 11211 United States (map)

Join the Carcosa (comic) Book Club for their second meetup and discuss this month’s selection Umbrella Academy Vol 1+2. Newcomers welcome!

Soon to be a Netflix show the groundbreaking series has been described as such “In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born by women who'd previously shown no signs of pregnancy. Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, "To save the world."

Conceived and written by Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance), Umbrella Academy features interior art by Eisner-award winner Gabriel Ba, and is a multiple Eisner-award winner itself, as well as a New York Tiimes bestseller!” Join us Feb 4th at 7 for a tasty beverage of your choice and a discussion focusing on a medium that hasn’t been just for kids longer than we haven’t been kids.
