[Comic Book Club] Character Spotlight: Black Panther

Hello Everyone!

 

This week we will be having a character spotlight on Black Panther! Last year, the cinematic adaptation of Black Panther turned heads for not only being the first black headlining superhero movie, but also for its attention to detail and display of African cultures. Well this coming weekend are the Oscars, and the movie is now the first superhero movie to be nominated for Best Picture!

 

We’ll be watching clips from the movie and discussing some of the history and fun facts about the character and the movie.

 

The meeting will be on Thursday, February 21, at 6PM in Carver 0190! We look forward to seeing you there!

[Comic Book Club] Black Superheroes and Villains in Comics

Hello Everyone!

 

This week, in celebration of Black History Month, we will be talking about the black superheroes and villains in comics! There’s a long history, some of it not so good, of black characters in comics, but over the years a lot of progress has been made to show representation and diversity within the industry. While we will be focusing a bit more on some of the more well known and popular characters, feel free to share with us your favorite black comic characters as well!

 

The meeting will be on Thursday, February 7, at 6PM in Carver 0190! We look forward to seeing you there!

[Comic Book Club] February Schedule

Hello Everyone!

 

To start off, there is no club meeting tomorrow, Thursday, January 31. I was waiting it out to see what the weather is like, and while it’s supposed to be warmer than it has been the last few days, there’s still the possibility of some pretty chilly temperatures including the windchill tomorrow evening. I figured if I don’t want to be out on campus at that time, most of you probably don’t either.

 

However, we will be picking up our meetings the following week. Below is the tentative February meeting schedule. Please come join us and we look forward to seeing you on Thursday, February 7, at 6PM in Carver 0190!

 

February 7 - Black Superheroes and Villains in Comics (In Celebration of Black History Month)

February 14 - The Best (and Worst) Couples in Comics (In Celebration of Valentine’s Day)

February 21 - Character Spotlight: Black Panther

February 28 - How To Delve Into the World of Comics, One Step at a Time

 

There will be a weekly newsletter sent out on Saturdays to explain more on the meeting topic of that week and to let you guys know any updates on club activities.

 

Have a great rest of your week and stay warm!

 

President V
