PLG Graphic Novel Book group discusses Curveball
Led by Greenlight bookseller Emily, our graphic novel book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens reads and discusses comics and graphic novels in a variety of genres. For October, the group discusses Curveball by creator of the Steven Universe comic series Jeremy Sorese. Curveball is a science fiction graphic novel telling the story of a waiter named Avery coping with the ending of a difficult relationship. The idea of the relationship has eclipsed its reality and in Avery’s already troubled life, the allure of something dependable is a powerful force. Curveball focuses on the duality of hope and delusion, and how ignorance is integral to surviving our day to day lives but can be incredibly destructive if allowed to blossom into optimism. This is the gorgeous debut of a talented young cartoonist telling the most universal of tales: a love story.
