Guide for Library Research on Graphic Novels and Manga


Captain America Punches Hitler

Since the dawn of time, humans have used art to tell stories.  In the last twenty five years, a specific form of art-in-book-format has gained mainstream attention: The Graphic Novel.  Schools and libraries have discovered a large demand for this material which has a wide range of uses both as entertainment and in a more formal, educational atmosphere. While the Lloyd Sealy Library, being a library that is focused on criminal justice, does not have a particularly large collection of graphic novels, we still understand that graphic novels are a topic that some classes would like to cover and need information on. This Libguide gives an introduction to graphic novels in general and to resources available from the library.
