You asked for them. Graphic novels are here!

Last year we asked you to take a quick survey and let us know if you read graphic novels, if you would read them if we had some, and if you would  suggest titles for us to purchase. 

And that's exactly what you did.  Then, we took your suggestions, did a little research on the best-of-the-best and most popular titles and bought a core collection that's ready for your reading pleasure. Aren't you excited?!

Come by the library and you will see a display of the novels themselves, as well as  books about the history, creation, design, and quality of graphic novels as a genre.  In case some of them are checked-out by the time you get here, you can see the titles of the novels listed below. 

If you have suggestions for other titles we should purchase, just let us know in a comment and we'll do our best to get those, too. 

Here's what we bought baxed on your suggestions and our research:

American Born Chinese

Astro Boy, v 1-2

Batman, dark knight returns

Bone, one vol. ed.
