Judging a Book by Its Cover

By Jenine Lillian, MLIS Day

The December issue of Silverfish is spotlighting comics and graphic novels, so this book list is dedicated to novels and non-fiction that star cartoonists and involve comics. There’s something for everyone on this list of SPL’s offerings, including mysteries, romance, adventure, politics... Of course, there’s only one comic hero out there in library land, so a special salute goes out to Dewey as we ask “What Would Dewey Do?”
