Are you a women and a comic book lover? If you answered yes, you’ve come to the right place and this article is for you. We anticipate you’ll love it to pieces. Well, maybe not the article, but the event we’re writing about.
Because in late August Melbourne got a new club. One where it’s all about comics and where you can meet a whole big bunch of like-minded women. The big back room of 1000 £ Bend is once a month the backdrop to this awesome club. It doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie when it comes to comics, or if you know the ins and outs of everything. As long as you love comics – you’re welcome.
Every month has a theme, and this one is Captain Marvel. During the October meetup this weekend (their biggest one yet!) they’ll even have a book club discussion. If you want to join in, get yourself a copy of Captain Marvel – In pursuit of flight, and prepare for what we can only assume will be one interesting discussion.
If you’re not super into that, don’t worry, they won’t hold it against you. Just pop on by, bring along something you’ve been reading and enjoying lately. It’s all about sharing your love for comics with other women in this setting. Talk about cool characters, feminism, or just hang around and read – anything you feel like. Oh, and did we mention that there’s no fee at all to be part of this club.
I got the rad opportunity to act as fly on the wall on their first meeting, where I snapped these pictures. And boy, these girls are one great bunch. You know that feeling when you walk into a room full of strangers but immediately feel at home? Well, I barely known that before, but it totally happened at this event.
It’s an event exclusively for women. This means any male partners, friends or family can’t follow you in. They can hang out in 1000 £ Bend though, and enjoy a cuppa or two, while you’re in there socialising. Or just leave them at home!
