Librarians at Comic Con

Thanks to a new generation of comics reading librarians, the expansion of genres in the medium and the ability of graphic novels to attract hordes of male and female teen readers, comics—namely, graphic novel collections—have found a new home in the library market. The panel, “Bringing Comics to Life in the Library!” held at the recent San Diego Comic-Con International, looked at the strategies five libraries use to engage readers and the implications for comics publishers. –Librarians at Comic-Con – Publisher’s Weekly

This is a great article about librarians working to promote comics in their libraries; I wish I could have seen the panel it talks about!

About Sarah R. Barrett

I'm the webmaster here and a life-long comics nerd. I used to run the MLLL, an all-comics library, at my alma mater, Reed College, which got me started on this whole track. My specialty, comics-wise, is thinking about the medium as a system, rather than about individual works. Professionally, I'm a search geek, and you can find me at SarahRBarrett.com .
