Nate Powell's follow-up to the Eisner award-winning Swallow Me Whole
examines war and violence, and their trickle-down effects on middle
America. As a gang of small-town kids find themselves reunited in
adulthood, their dark histories collide in a struggle for the future.
Any Empire follows three kids in a Southern town as a rash of mysterious
turtle mutilations forces each to confront their relationship to their
privileged suburban fantasies of violence. Then, after years apart, the
three are thrown together again as adults, amid questions of choice and
force, belonging and betrayal.

Black Hole is a favorite among group members. Looking back on all of our discussions, it easily stands out. It is horror, but it's horror in the best of ways. Rather than relying on shock value like a slasher flick, Black Hole worms its way into your mind and sits there festering. It's unsettling and quite remarkable.

We read all six Scott Pilrim books over the course of three months. They're fun, quick reads. The group agreed that books 4 and 6 were the best. They should probably be read in order, though.
