Fort Greene Graphic Novel Book Group discusses Bad Girls
Led by Greenlight bookseller Geo, our graphic novel book group in Fort Greene reads and discusses comics and graphic novels in a variety of genres. For March, the group discusses Bad Girls by acclaimed creators Alex de Campi and Victor Santos. In this heart-pounding, starkly colored, and visually stunning noir comic, three women are running out of time to get out of Cuba with six million dollars. Gangster’s moll Carole, jazz singer Taffy, and mambo queen Ana all have their reasons for needing to escape the El Eden Casino in Havana. And on the tumultuous night of New Year’s Eve, 1958, when Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista flees the country and the nation falls to Fidel Castro, they get their chance...with the help of six suitcases filled with stolen dirty money. Of course, it’s one thing to get the cash and quite another to get off the island alive. De Campi and Santos weave an unforgettable and glittering noir thriller—all wrapped up in the humid, fateful Caribbean night that marked the very end of the great mob casinos.
