Each month we host a Graphic Novel Book Club meeting, open to all, during which we hang out and informally discuss a featured graphic novel. Our pick for this July is The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor and the Ship that Sank Twice by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. We will meet at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard Avenue West) on Wednesday, August 16th at 7 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by Drawn & Quarterly production coordinator Sam Tse! Join us for refreshments and collective insights!
***We are offering a 20% discount on Tommy Taylor from now until the meeting date!***
Acclaimed artist Peter Gross (Lucifer, Books of Magic ) and award-winning writer Mike Carey (Lucifer, The Girl with All the Gifts ) team up in a sideways romp through literature. Tommy Taylor and the Ship that Sank Twice explores common literary and fantasy tropes, but approaches them with originality and tact. A boy wizard claims his birthright; spells are cast; and stories are woven and unwoven. Mike Carey pushes archetypes to their limit; and, in doing so, proves that some stories are worth telling—and some are worth dying for.
