About Us

This is the official blog for the comic book club held in the book lounge of Waterstone's Liverpool One.

The group meet at 6pm on the third Monday of the month to discuss their thoughts and opinions on the comics selected.

It's a fun and friendly atmosphere and all are welcome: from those who have never read comic books, manga, or graphic novels before (call them what you like), to those who never read anything else.

The group, and this blog, are administered by Glyn Morgan, the Bookseller responsible for the Graphic Novels and Manga sections of the store and a big comic book fan who is currently studying for his PhD at the University of Liverpool.

If you would like to comment on any of the comics we've read, this month or in the distant past, please feel free to contribute to the comments section of the relevant posts.

A Note on the Blog

Although this blog may appear slow paced and close to death in fact the group is very much alive and now entering its second year. Most of the group discussion (not done in person in Waterstone's of Wagamama's) takes place in the Facebook group - feel free to join. In the meantime I will try to keep a copy of the reading list here for general consumption. - G

The Ballad of Halo Jones and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Century: 1910 by Alan Moore

 The Ballad of Halo Jones
Meet Halo Jones. Not brave, nor clever, nor strong, she was just somebody who had to get out. Escaping the Hoop, Manhattan Island's land of mindless leisure, is the first step in a cosmic adventure that will take Halo to the ends of the galaxy, through war and peace, trial, despair and triumph.


League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Century: 1910

The fourth volume detailing the exploits of Miss Wilhelmina Murray and her extraordinary colleagues, Century is an epic spanning almost 100 years. Chapter one is set against the backdrop of London in 1910, 12 years after the failed Martian invasion and nine years since England put a man on the moon. With Halley's Comet passing overhead, the nation prepares for the coronation of King George V, while far away on his South Atlantic island, the science-pirate Captain Nemo is dying.

What Did We Think?
