This group meets on the second Wednesday of each month to discuss all things related
to comic books, anime, and manga. Whether its Golden Age, Silver Age, Manga, or
Anime, this group tackles the ins and outs of art, story, and the graphic media. Join our
moderators as they explore the comic book universe.
This month we investigate ancient, imperial China through today's modern middle
kingdom. The grand, mysterious dynasties of China represented in the comic book
universe and entertainment.
|Lost & Found
January 2020 "found" us at Drawing A Crowd to start off the new year with our lost worlds / lost and
found theme. Some of the comics Haywood highlighted:
The TV show Land of the Lost was viewed, as well as Lost Horizon (1937) starring Ronald Colman and
Jane Wyatt. The Lost World written by Arthur Conan Doyle and it's 1925 silent film starring Wallace Beery
as Professor George Challenger were also mentioned. Conversation continued at a nearby diner where we
were still singing the Land of the Lost theme song....Marshall, Will and Holly, on a routine expedition. Met
the greatest earthquake ever known..... Fun and Informative.

With Haywood under the weather, Barry was kind enough to step in and moderate. The big news was The
CW crossover event "Crisis on Infinite Earths" being shown on five nights on Supergirl / Batwoman / The
Flash / Arrow / DC Legends of Tomorrow. Barry gave a history of the comic book basis and showed trailers
for Crisis and some of the films based on comics. All the attendees went to a nearby diner to continue the
conversation. Fun and informative evening.
