Over on her official YouTube page, Comic Book Girl 19 has been providing a sort of community service thanks to videos such as “Epic History X-Men” and "Greater Creators". Now, CBG19 is releasing a collection of videos for a crowd-sourcing initiative called "Watchmen Club". Pitched as an online book club, the multi-part series walks readers/viewers through all 12 issues of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons groundbreaking comic run and explains what made it so unique.
From Comic Book Girl 19:
#WatchmenClub is an interactive book club hosted by Comic Book Girl 19 where participants read The Watchmen Graphic Novel and discuss it once-a-week over 6 weeks LIVE on Twitch on Sundays starting February 4th, 2018. Session 1 will cover the 1st two issues, Session 3 will cover the next 2 issues, etc.
The first four episodes (above and below) are available to watch here (warning: some strong language), but be sure to show your support and check out future updates by visiting her official site.
