    As I have written extensive reviews for each essay, I don't feel I have much to add overall. This is an inspiring book that I believe every librarian involved with collection development should read. In addition, many of these essays would be fantastic for every librarian to read so that we can finally acknowledge the merit of having comics in libraries.

    I'm a bit biased as I've got an article in here, but probably the most comprehensive monograph available for librarians interested in building a graphic novel collection and going in understanding all the myriad issues, rewards and risks associated with doing so. Utterly indispensible for YA librarians, especially.

    OK, I didn't actually read the whole thing because it came due before I could, but the chapters I did read were great, especially the history of webcomics by Amy Thorne and Laurel Tarulli's piece on cataloging issues.
