The Heroes Discussion Group is back in August to celebrate our finest hour. In a recent poll taken on this very site, the majority of folks voted for Saturday afternoon as their preferred time for Heroes Events. So, please plan to join us on Saturday afternoon August 28th at 4:00pm where we will meet in the back of the store and sit down to discuss one of the most popular books of 2010—Scott Pilgrim Volume 6 Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour by Bryan Lee O’Malley.

We plan to discuss the entire series but our primary focus will be the final volume of the series. It is recommended but not required that you be familiar with the entire series.

We plan to talk in depth about the story-line, the pacing, the art-work, the page lay-out and the wild characterization.

In other words, we will examine what it is about Scott Pilgrim that has turned the series into such a phenomenon?

We are making an educated guess that the majority (if not all) of those planning to attend the discussion group will have already seen the film adaptation, Scott Pilgrim Versus the World.

If that proves to be the case, we’d like to veer slightly off topic and discuss the adaptation of O’Malley comics into film—what worked and what didn’t?

Then we’d like to branch out even further and discuss comic adaptations in general.  This is one of our all-time favorite discussion topics

Finally we will spend the last fifteen minutes discussing upcoming Discussion Groups.  Hint: September’s Discussion Group will be a book you will definitely want to Reed. With more surprises just around the corner! Expect the unexpected!

This will prove to be a rather exciting two hours (or more if we are really rolling!)

And of course Scott Pilgrim Volume 6 Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour is available from Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find.  As usual we are offering the special 10% Discussion Group Discount; but be sure to mention the discount when you check out!

We can’t wait!  See you there!
