It's not surprising to us that comics and graphic novels have become one of the fastest growing sections for many libraries and book stores. We get questions all the time regarding comics. Many librarians, in particular, struggle with what books to get, what they contain and even what comics are all about.
Look no further than this week's sponsor Da Capo Press, publisher of Reading Comics by Douglas Wolk. This book that takes a critical look at the medium and answer the questions of which comics are worth reading, what this graphic medium is all about and much more. It is a worthy guide to this brave new world.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Well maybe not, but it is the nerdiest, with over a hundred thousand fans of comics and pop culture converging on San Diego for Comic Con International. Surprisingly not all of them are coming just to see us, but we'll be there anyway. This fabulous map shows where you can find us, namely at booth 2300 just inside one of the many front doors. There:
We look forward to seeing you!
