Graphic novels have become very popular. For those not familiar with them, graphic novels are similar to comic books. They are usually stand-alone stories with more complex plots than comic books. There are many types of graphic novels including manga, superhero stories, and even non-fiction. The library’s graphic novel collection contains all types.
This week we received the latest in our Amazing Spider-Man series, The Amazing Spider-Man: Worldwide by Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli. In this volume, Peter Parker is busy traveling the world as his corporation, Parker Industries, has expanded to Shanghai and London. But success breeds enemies and Peter and his alter-ego Spider-Man must deal with several. In addition to the Human Torch and Zodiac, someone in Africa is masquerading as a member of the Goblin family. Everyone’s favorite wall-crawler must investigate this threat and protect the world.
If you enjoy Spider-Man, check out this one and the rest of the series. We also have Batman, Conan, and many other graphic novels for you to try. They are located in the non-fiction section in the Dewey number 741.5. As always, if you need help finding them, please ask a staff member.
