Parkway Central Library
We'll gather in the Art Department, on Parkway Central Library's 2nd floor from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Anyone age 18+ who is interested in making comics, or just kickin’ back and reading ‘em is welcome to stop by! For those in the mood to ink, we will be providing some blank paneled pages and other drawing supplies. Recently we started gathering comics made during these meetings for a future Comix Club zine!
Comix Club attendees will also have the opportunity to view our Philadelphia Comics Collection (PCC)! This collection contains work by local comix artists, which are often also printed and published in Philly. The entirety of this collection is catalogued and available for library use. If you can’t make it to Comix Club, the whole collection can be found on special PCC-designated shelves by the Art & Literature Reference Desk. Please be aware that the content of many of these comics is mature and graphic in nature, and so readers must be 18 and up.
One continuous goal for Comix Club is to continue to build this inclusive and precious in-house collection. If you are a Philadelphia-based artist with a comic of your own, or have any local comics you’d like to donate to PCC, feel free to bring them to our meet-ups!
