Obscurity of DC Presents: Ultra-bscure Book Club, Week 52 (December 17-December 23) — NORTH 40!

Welcome, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week [new] 52 of Obscurity of DC’s Ultr-Obscure Book Club! This week, we’ll be focusing on…

NORTH 40!!!

Number of Books: 1

Synopsis from dcuniverseinfinite.com: A strange phenomenon causes the manifestation of super powers, but only within a small rural area. What’s behind this unusual happening, and can Sheriff Morgan solve the mystery before his community is torn apart?

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. Why do you think Robert and Dylan opened the book? Do you think they understood the power held by the book? Explain?
  2. North 40 tends to avoid the usual “black-and-white”, “good vs evil” theme in most comics. Instead, it tends to predominantly trap itself within the gray. How do you think this different theme subsumed into the complexity of the story?
  3. North 40 has been ranked as the best horror story of 2009. Did you find it to be scary? Which part(s) were the scariest for you? Explain.
  4. Of all the unique powers present in North 40, which interested you the most? Were there any powers you’d want to have? If so, which? Explain.
  5. Who was your favorite character in the series? Why?
