    August 16, 2012 9:58 pm Don't know where you live, but many libraries solve this problem. For both Japanese and American comics.
    December 21, 2011 10:15 pm Thanks, Ryan! This is a huge lovefest for libraries! As a librarian, I can tell you that there are some libraries that don't know what to order when it comes to comics. Since I'm an avid fan, our branch is pretty solid, but comics still hold a stigma in some areas. If you think your library doesn't have a great collection, you can offer assistance in the form of recommendations (Eisners, Must Haves, Core Titles, etc.) or try and suggest partnering up with your LCBS (that way two organizations win!). Stuff like FCBD? Easy to recommend to a librarian, the comic shop will hook you up with all the free comics you want, then you give them out! It's awesome! And librarians love free. If you haven't stopped in your library for a bit, give it a try. And if yours is small, it's usually just a button click away to have items sent to your location (Seriously. Our library just has an 'add to cart' feature). As an American (I can't speak for Canada) you should be able to get a huge variety of titles (comic titles too) with ease. And for free. It's kinda our schtick.
    November 2, 2011 2:16 pm Dinosaurs. Nautical history to a lesser extent, but I love learning about and drawing dinosaurs. I typically stick with a classic and say parasaurolophus is my favorite, but there are so many good options!
    November 2, 2011 2:14 pm Awesome! I was just drawing an Ahuizotl (mean monkey-dog that drowns you). I don't know what a Mokele Mbembe is, but now I'm gonna look it up.
    September 30, 2011 10:05 pm Thanks for this article, Josh. I think you hit the nail on the head. As an educator and librarian I was keeping my fingers crossed for a wider range of books, but I didn't really think that I'd get it. And I didn't. I can take some of the titles and add them to the Teen/Adult collections, but I'm pretty sure (I need to check the list again) that I can't put any of the new 52 with younger kids. Bummer. I've have no doubt that comics will continue to be published, and with kids in mind. It's just every other publisher (HaperCollins, Scholastic, etc.) that is jumping on the band wagon, and leaving DC and Marvel behind. That's a divide that I find increasingly interesting. I want floppies to stick around for a good long time, but if DC/Marvel don't write for anyone except the wallets they already have, is that likely?
    September 26, 2011 1:29 pm That is amazing. I'm still laughing at this. Bravo, man. Bravo.

    August 22, 2011 2:38 pm I'm one of those lucky people that is handed thousands of dollars to stock our shelves with comic books. Luckily with "Kids", "Teen", and "Adult" sections it's not nearly as easy to oppose comics in libraries as it was in the early days of collecting. Most library policies state that even if a book is formally opposed it remains on the shelf until a board convenes on it. At which point some librarian says "First amendment, biotches" and then it stays on the shelf. (That and time has passed so the hype and care about the issue has died down). Honestly, I have had far more positive reactions to the comic book collections then anything else. Which is totally gratifying. And I love articles like this that show me people are digging our collections. On behalf of comic book ordering librarians, thanks for the love!
