I heard this NPR Story, Three Writings Feel the Lure of Comics, (you can listen to the story online) on the way to campus this morning. Here’s a quote:
As comic books — or, in more highbrow parlance, graphic novelizations — nudge their way onto the shelves of bookstores and the pages of literary magazines, some well-known writers are trying their hand at the genre. Pop-culture icon Joss Whedon, best-selling novelist Jodi Picoult and rapper Percy Carey are among those feeling the lure of comics.
The MVCC Library has added a number of graphic novels to the library’s collection. (Leslie put a post on this blog about this a few years ago.) I thought I’d add a few notable titles:
- In the Shadow of No Towers
- Malcolm X
- Yamato nadeshiko shichi henge (the Wallflower)
These are just a few examples of titles we’ve added.
