Promotional Information

Libraries have embraced literary graphic novels while largely overlooking popular comic book titles. Yet some 44 percent of 9- to 11-year-old girls read comic books, while almost 60 percent of boys in the same age range thrill to the exploits of comic book heroes and villains. This book can help libraries take advantage of this overlooked opportunity.
