Librarians Portrayed in ComicsGraphic novel and comic book fans are book lovers, so it is no surprise that libraries and librarians are portrayed fairly frequently in all sorts of graphic works. Here are some comics that feature libraries and librarians and are perfect for some light reading or for a fun library display.
Americus by MK Reed and Jonathan Hill – This book focuses on an event that some libraries know all too well – a book challenge. The main character is a teen named Neal Barton who really just wants to read the latest entry in his favorite fantasy series. But, unfortunately for him, a religious group objects to the book’s “heretical” content and requests that it be removed from the library. Together with a youth services librarian, Neal fights to keep his favorite series on the shelf and for the right of readers to have access to books of all sorts.
Library Wars by Kiiro Yumi – Set in a dystopian future of Japan where the government is allowed to censor anything it finds to be objectionable, the Library Wars manga series follows Iku, a young girl determined to serve in the combat forces of the Library Defense Force. Members of this group save materials from censorship and destruction and take them to libraries that can legally save and protect them.
