Love to read? Want to read sprawling, legendary, epic tales with other community members? Great, we do too! DCU Book Club is delighted to introduce… DCUBC-Epics!
DCUBC-Epics will host the reading and discussion of complete story arcs. We will read approximately two volumes of the story per week. The reading and discussion schedule will be included in the post.
DCU’s original, live-action series - Swamp Thing - debuts on May 31st. This is an excellent time to read Alan Moore’s critically acclaimed, character-defining run which inspired the series. So let’s get to it! But first, we’ll start with a few tips:
• Stop by to share your thoughts, reactions, and answers to discussion questions as you read the story.
• Spoiler comments are welcome, but please refrain from spoiling issues AHEAD of the discussion schedule below.
• If your comments are issue-specific, add the issue number in your comment.
Week 1 of 3: Discussion begins NOW and ends Tuesday night, April 23rd. A new thread will be posted each Wednesday for the next two volumes in the series.
Without further ado… Week 1 of Alan Moore’s SWAMP THING (1982-)!
