Magic meets the mob in THE MAGIC ORDER, as five families of magicians-sworn to protect our world for generations-must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day, they live among us as our neighbors, friends, and co-workers, but by night, they are the sorcerers, magicians, and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness…unless the darkness gets them first. MARK MILLAR’s first NETFLIX comic book, drawn by the incredible OLIVIER COIPEL (Amazing Spider-Man, Thor).

QUICK & EASY GUIDE TO THEY THEM PRONOUNS GN

(W) Archie Bongiovanni, Tristan Jimerson (A/CA) Archie Bongiovanni
Archie, a snarky genderqueer artist, is tired of people not understanding gender neutral pronouns. Tristan, a cisgender dude, is looking for an easy way to introduce gender neutral pronouns to his increasingly diverse workplace. The longtime best friends team up in this short and fun comic guide that explains what pronouns are, why they matter, and how to use them. They also include what to do if you make a mistake, and some tips-and-tricks for those who identify outside of the binary to keep themselves safe in this binary-centric world. A quick and easy resource for people who use they/them pronouns, and people who want to learn more!

Learn Something New: Understanding Comics

7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
The Public Library of Brookline – Brookline Village, 361 Washington Street, Brookline
RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/learn-something-new-understanding-comics-registration-45005946999

Comics are their own storytelling format and can tell all kinds of stories. Whether you pour over the Sunday comic strips, read stacks of Japanese manga, or settle in with the latest graphic novel memoir, there is a title for you. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Scott McCloud’s landmark text Understanding Comics, a guide to how comics work written in the format. Everyone from new comics readers to long-time enthusiasts are invited to join the library’s resident comics expert Robin Brenner to learn how to decode visual cues, read in between the panels, and understand how this hybrid medium engages our brains.
This event is part of the Learn Something New series. Generously sponsored by the Library Trustees.

AD AFTER DEATH HC | Preview

What if we found a cure for death?

Two of comics’ most acclaimed creators, SCOTT SNYDER (WYTCHES, Batman, American Vampire) and JEFF LEMIRE (DESCENDER, PLUTONA, Moon Knight, Sweet Tooth) unite to create an epic like no other, set in a future where a genetic cure for death has been found. Years after the discovery, one man starts to question everything, leading him on a mind-bending journey that will bring him face-to-face with his past and his own mortality.

A unique combination of comics, prose, and illustration, A.D.: AFTER DEATH is an oversized hardcover graphic novel written by SNYDER and fully painted by LEMIRE.

Written by Alex Paknadel (Arcadia, Assassin’s Creed) and illustrated by Artyom Trakhanov (Undertow, American Vampire), Paknadel & Trakhanov’s Turncoat is a gripping exploration of the sociopolitical ramifications of occupation in a post-war civilization where the transition from oppression to emancipation is anything but clean. It’s been three hundred years since humanity was brutally subjugated by the alien race known as Management-and two years since these invaders abandoned Earth to return to their home world. Following her participation in the brutal massacre that caused Management’s withdrawal, resistance fighter Marta Gonzalez is riddled with guilt. Rather than join the new human government, she starts her own private detective agency. When a missing persons case lands on her desk, Gonzalez is forced to confront her own bloody past as she delves into the seedy underworld that’s bloomed after the alien departure. Collects the complete limited series.
