The wait is over. Comics  are now available to borrow at the Griffith City Library. Real, honest to goodness comics! The collection has debuted with almost 90 trade paper back books and there is more where that came from!

We've got Spider-man, Batman, X-men, Superman and more. And it doesn't stop at superheroes (but honestly we could have and the collection would still be awesome), we've also got sci-fi comics such as Y: The Last Man and Manhattan Project with plans to expand into the 'slice of life' genre in the near future.

So if you're a fan or are interested in trying comics then rush in and grab a book or two from the Griffith City Library. If you are new to comics and you'd like the library's resident comic guru to help get you started, I work Wednesdays and Fridays.

For fans of Manga, don't forget that the library already has a modest collection of Manga titles located in the Youth Fiction section.

For those familiar with the Western Riverina's online catalogue, Griffith's comic collection can be found under 'Fiction Comic' in collections or just follow the link.

Special thanks goes to Ben Schaefer for donating over twenty trades to the collection!

Your friendly neighbourhood,
Mike Lee
