Graphic Novels

Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
Comic books are seen as kids' stuff much of the time, as a frivolous form of writing and reading. However, as movie goers saw this summer in The Dark Knight, comic book writers are often taking on very serious issues and tackling some of the big questions in life: What is the meaning of good and evil? What is our place in the world? What happens to a hero if he doesn't win?

The graphic novel collection in the library is a growing and changing selection, with everything from superheroes to everyday teens just trying to make it through high school. It's a great place to spend some time.
