Comics & Coffee
July 25th | 6-7 PM

Join us each month to discuss the latest and greatest in the comics industry! For the month of May, we'll be reading Middlewest written by Skottie Young and illustrated by Jorge Corona. Come on down to the Twin Falls Public Library and check it out! 

Comics & Coffee is a library program brought to you in partnership with our fellow nerds at Twin Beans Coffee Company. We meet on the last Thursday of each month at Twin Beans Coffee Company to discuss the latest and greatest graphic novels on the market today.  

Synopsis:


The lands between the coasts are vast, slow to change, and full of hidden magics. The town of Farmington has been destroyed sending an unwitting adventurer and his vulpine companion in search of answers to quell a coming storm that speaks his name. From author SKOTTIE YOUNG (I HATE FAIRYLAND, DEADPOOL) and artist JORGE CORONA (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, FEATHERS, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA: OLD MAN JACK) comes the tale of Abel, a young boy who must navigate an old land in order to reconcile his family's history.
