Read a Graphic Novel

March 1-10, 2013 is Will Eisner Week. Who was Will Eisner, you say? He was one of the fathers of the American comic book beginning work in the late 1930s and continuing to produce almost until his death in 2005. He's also considered the father of the graphic novel, and in his honor it's hoped you'll read a graphic novel this week.

If you want to know more about the man, see Will Eisner: Conversations. It's part of our EBSCO eBooks collection.

If you want to sample a graphic novel, we have a small collection available for check out--both fiction and non-fiction: Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis (741.S28), Neil Gaiman's Sandman (741.5 G35), Alison Bechdel's Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic (741.5 B43), Apostolos Doxiadis and Christos H. Papadimitriou's biography of Bertrand Russell, Logicomix (741.5 D69), Art Spiegelman's Maus: A Survivor's Tale (940.53 S65), and others.
