Reading Comics

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.
