Comic Book Night At The Millstadt Library
Thursday, Jul 12, 2018 @ 6:00 pm
Holy Books, Batman! The Millstadt Library is having a comic book night!
Adventure to the Millstadt Library, 115 West Laurel, Thursday July 12th, starting at 6 p.m. for an all-ages, action-packed night of FREE comics, FREE picture with our super hero photo props, a drawing for a free-standing promo of Marie Lu’s book, Batman Nightwalker, and a guest presentation from a local comic book writer and illustrator!
Comics and references to them are everywhere, on the book shelves, at the theater, and on your t-shirts. One of the often-overlooked aspects of the library is the ability to use it for so much more than reading traditional books. There’s a multitude of media available for consumption and all you have to do is request it. Want to rewatch all of the Avengers movies? Order it from the library. Want to play one of the Lego DC games? Order it from the library. Want to actually read the comics you watch? Order it from the library. If you’ve got a fandom, we’ve got the resource.
To make our night extra special, we’ve got a guest speaker, Sam Weber. By daytime he’s the manager of Fantasy Books in Belleville, by night, he’s a writer and illustrator of comics. His work has been published in two volumes of Ink and Drink Comics, a comics anthology series based in St. Louis and he’s also is the creator behind “Oarsworn,” an action/fantasy webcomic that updates every Tuesday. You can find “Oarsworn at https://tapas.io/series/Oarsworn.
(Costumes and Pop-Culture T-shirts are welcome, but not required.)
