I have a veracious comic book appetite. I can consume them all day long. I don’t know why, but I love the medium. So when I made the discovery that my local library had a decent stash of them it was like finding that long lost treasure in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle.
I can say that over the last couple of years I have read pretty much half of the graphic novels in the library system. Luckily there are two things that will keep me going. The first is that they are constantly bringing in new books and I have heard that they are doing this more so because more and more kids are reading Manga as well as other types of comics. The second is the awesome online catalogue that the library system in my area has. I don’t even have to go to the library and search through the books anymore! I can just look at all of the graphic novels and for a quarter (yes, twenty five cents!) you can have them delivered to the nearest library.
I have taken a picture of my latest grab. It’s a mix of both Manga and Graphic Novel as well as a mix of known titles and a couple of new ones. If I plan and actually try, I can have these all read in two to three weeks. Then I can get back to reading all of the books I bought for Christmas… Wait, wasn’t I suppose to be drawing as well???
