Welcome once again to the Talking Comics Book Club! What you’ll find here is a closed panel discussion featuring members of the Talking Comics staff and a few of our close friends, fans, and contributors. This week, Steve Seigh, Mr. Bob Reyer, Carolyn Cocca, Huw Parry, Ryan Carroll, and Bronwyn Kelly dissect and dive into the emotionally charged and epic tale of Barbara Thornson in Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura’s I Kill Giants.
Please be aware that the following webcast contains MAJOR SPOILERS for those that have yet to read the book. Proceed with caution and enjoy the show!
Join us as we give our detailed thoughts of the book in a laid back Q + A style forum. Join us as we get deep about the art, atmosphere, heroics, and the emotional weight of a book that’s very close to our hearts!

Thanks so much for checking out the Talking Comics Book Club. We’ll be back next month with another webcast, another book, and maybe a few special guests! Cheers!
Didn't expect a book club so soon. Haven't had the chance yet to buy and read all the issues but i definitely will sometime this week, and after that i'll listen to the book club.
Keep a box of tissues handy. It's emotional stuff!
Man you were absolutely right about it being emotional.
Read all of it yesterday and the ending had me in tears, which has never happened to me before when reading a comic. I could relate so damn much with Barbara and the problem that she faces and the way she deals with it. I also experienced something like what happened to Barbara last year, and i totally understand the fear of facing death and trying to escape from it in some way but eventually standing up and facing it, and finding out we are much stronger than we think we are.So needless to say this hit me HARD!
I can now say that its definitely one of the best books i have ever read, and Barbara is now one of my favourite characters of all time(i mean come on, she loves Johnny Cash!!!)
Loved the discussion of this book on the book club and i pretty much feel the same way about it that you guys did.
Thanks for recommending it to me guys, and keep up the good work!
