For our first Comics Studies Reading Group meeting this Fall, we’ll be reading Mariko Tamaki & Steve Pugh’s multiple Eisner Award-winning graphic novel, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass (2019). For fans of Harley, Birds of Prey, or the recent Suicide Squad films, this book offers a unique take on the coming-of-age story and on a character that’s broken through a lot of barriers in her history.
The reading group is open to UNT faculty, students, staff, or community members who want to read and discuss comics, graphic novels, manga, anime, film, grapnic narrative, or comic art for the purposes of research, teaching, creating comics, or just enjoying as fans and collectors. We ask that all participants be respectful, thoughtful, and open to the ideas, feelings, and experiences of others in the group.
We’ll be meeting via Zoom on Saturday, October 2, 2021, at 1 p.m. If you’re interested in joining us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom link.
