Notable Graphic Novels Review

Lead: Graphic Novels, Comics, and Zines Special Interest Group.

Beginning in summer 2019, the annual Notable Graphic Novels Review online publication will present the ten best member-nominated graphic novels that are “innovative, memorable, or significant in the field, especially in terms of their artwork.” We define a graphic novel as a form of sequential art that typically integrates image and text in book form; genre and exact length can vary. It can be a collection of comic issues originally published as comic books or a standalone publication.

The primary objectives of the review are to engage the ARLIS/NA membership in acknowledging and celebrating innovative examples of the genre and to assist art librarians with improving their institutions’ graphic novel collections by providing summaries, critical evaluations, and informed recommendations.
