I haven’t read this story arc before. Book club seems like a fun way to check it out before the CWverse crossover.

Hi @Beagle
Excellent! I’m so looking forward to starting this one on Nov. 17th!

I think watching the CW crossover will be much richer after reading this source material. :smiley:

I’ve read this multiple times, but am looking forward to joining this conversation. I’ve actually gifted copies of the graphic novel to people as presents. It is just a nice overall story.

I just it for the first time over the summer and all the tie-ins in preparation for the CW crossover. It will be nice to read a more condensed version and fun to discuss right before the crossover!

Oh, hey, I thought I’d missed the boat on this. I guess I must’ve thought it started in October, not November. I’m definitely on board now. Really love this series.

The first time I read this, I pretty much binged it, and was confused more than I would’ve been if I had slowed down, paid more attention to details and let the story marinate.

This time around, I’m slowing down and paying attention to all the little details.

Yeah, the awesome thing about the Perez art is that there’s so much detail that you can easily just stare blissfully into even just a regular story page and find so many details, let alone the huge double-page spreads.
