Free Comic Book Day

This Saturday, May 3rd, is Free Comic Book Day, an annual, national event celebrating the independent comic book specialty stores that need more support than ever. Our favorite local comic book store, Legacy Comics, has been kind enough to give us some free comics to give out to our patrons, so feel free to stop by Glendale Central Library's Teen Area on Saturday, May 3rd, to get your free comic book (while our supply lasts!)

While you're here, check out the Library's Graphic Novel and Manga collections. There is so much diverse and wonderful literature being published in graphic form -- from Alan Moore's gritty
V for Vendetta, to Marjane Satrapi's memoir Persepolis, to Jeff Smith's children's epic Bone, and so much more -- there's really something for everyone.

Do you have a favorite graphic novel or comic book series? Does our Library
carry it? Let us know!
