Graphic Novels: Introduction

Welcome to the Graphic Novel research guide. Here you will find resources for all things related to comic books and graphic novels. Enjoy!

Let's Get Graphic

Your journey into the world of graphic novels begins here with databases, websites, image collections, and other sources you may need when reading or studying graphic novels. See what new Graphic Novels are added for your reading enjoyment and yes, even as a teaching resource. The graphic novel collection is located on the second floor NW corner.undefined

PLEASE NOTE: Although an attempt is made to screen all graphic novels added to the Malone collection, some may still contain adult content in words, meaning and images. If you are using graphic novels in the classroom, you may want to check the content first for appropriateness.   A ratings guide, similar to that found on video games, is located at the end of the Graphic Novel shelf. Labels are placed on books accordingly!  Click on the "At Cattell Library" tab for more information on ratings.
