Adding graphic novels to your library collection is a surefire way to boost circulation and build customer loyalty. But with thousands of graphic novels being published annually and no sign of a slowdown, how do you determine which graphic novels to purchase, and which to recommend to teen and adult readers? This guide is intended to help you start, update, or maintain a graphic novel collection and advise readers about the genre. It covers more than 2,400 titles, including series titles, and organizes them according to genre, subgenre, and theme-from super-heroes and adventure to crime, humor, and nonfiction. Reading levels, awards/recognition, and core titles are identified; and tie-ins with gaming, film, anime, and television are noted. Grade 6 through adult.


MICHAEL PAWUK is a public services librarian in Cuyahoga County Public Library.


"Michael Pawuk has collected a vast amount of information and detail for the long-overdue (and necessary) readers' advisory tool "Graphic NovelS"....[S]hould prove to be an invaluable tool for a librarian overwhelmed by where to start. Categorizing the hundreds of examples through genres such as Super-Heroes, Science Fiction, Humor, Contemporary Life, and Nonfiction, Pawuk describes each novel's plot, providing details such as the length of the series, the authors and illustrators, awards won, movies adapted from, and so forth. Both librarians and patrons will find a wealth of material to peruse, and newcomers to graphic novels will definitely discover something to pique their interest." - Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Resear
