Reviews

"While comics (books and strips) have been around for more than a century, graphic novels have only appeared in serious numbers in the last two decades. Since then, with publication of titles like Art Spiegelman's "Maus" and Chris Ware's "Jimmy Corrigan," graphic novels have gained a growing regard as a literary medium. But for noncomics readers, navigating the field can be a challenge. Weiner, a librarian, former teacher and longtime comics reader, provides just the kind of information needed." --"Publishers Weekly" "The strengths of Weiner's book lie in the scanned black-and-white reproductions of most of the book covers, which give users firsthand experience of the rich diversity of illustrative styles, and a balance of fiction, in several of its genres, with nonfiction." --"School Library Journal" While comics (books and strips) have been around for more than a century, graphic novels have only appeared in serious numbers in the last two decades.

"School Library Journal"" "A coming-of-age story that will expand graphic novel collections with its incorporation of the historical oppression, community empowerment, and identities of marginalized communities in 1970s New York City." Sujei Lugo, "Library Journal"" "Librarians who want to build a core graphic novel collection and who don't have the time or the budget to look through 1,000 or more books in a list will find this book much more manageable." "Voya""
