You don’t need hear me grouse about the price of some comics today. A good friend tells me he often relies on his local library in West Hollywood to read trades and graphic novels, which inspires me to check my own library to see what goodies it has on hand. Here’s what I found today. I’ve read only rave comments about The Umbrella Academy and Kathryn and Stuart Immonen’s Moving Pictures has an interesting plot about art treasures during World War II. I was very happy to see a copy of the collected Batwoman.
Go find which comics trades and graphic novels your library has! You may be surprised! If you don’t see much or anything at all, ask if your library is part of an inter-library loan system and you’ll be able to request books from other libraries in its network.
