We’ve bought a lot of graphic novels (and scholarly titles on topics related to comics and graphic novels) to add to our collection in the past few years, so in order to call attention to our acquisitions the latest book display at the rear of the 2nd floor “quiet area” is devoted to comics of all kinds. Memoir, history, music, science, food, horror, science fiction, fantasy, humor, super heroes… if there is a topic or genre that appeals to you, you’re likely to find something that will appeal to you either on these shelves or elsewhere in the collection (we own way too many now to put them all on display now).
If you’re a fan of the comics format, check it out. If you’re new to or are just curious about comics, also check it out! And if you have any questions or are looking for some suggestions, feel free to ask. We always like connecting people with new things to read, and I pride myself on being able to find comics that will appeal to just about anyone.
And to answer a question we often get about these book displays: yes, OF COURSE you can check these out! We set these things up to draw your attention to the books we set up, and we hope that results in people giving them a shot. Personally, I love seeing big empty spaces in previously full displays… that means it’s working.
And if you check out and request a lot of graphic novels, we might get to buy more. Everyone wins.
