Seasonal Special Happenings

Something Graphic

When: Thu., June 18 2015

Cleveland superhero fans can rejoice. The newly founded “Trauma and Transformation” book club at Cleveland Public Library’s Ohio Center for the Book focuses on bringing to light the trials and tribulations of the modern-day superhero. Apparently, it isn’t all just billowing capes and breathy dames. The biweekly book club will focus on Frank Milller and David Mazuchelli this week and their work Batman: Year One, one of the more morose Batman installments (and that’s saying something). The DC comic deals with Batman’s first dimly lit romps with masked baddies as he comes of age in a mob-run Gotham City. The Year One run isn’t as littered with familiar faces as other Batman installments as it follows his first 365 days in tights but it is one of the more turbulent installments. The book club will discuss the plight of a young Bruce Wayne at 4 p.m. on the 2nd floor of the main library and welcomes superhero critics and fans to join in. (Rees)
