Graphic Novels at the Library

Graphic novels aren’t just about superheroes anymore. They comment on culture, politics, relationships, historical events and much more.  We have a fantastic LibGuide by our Metadata and Digital Collections Librarian, Jeremy Barney which really highlights our collection.  You can find many of our graphic novels in the browsing section across from our current periodicals on the first floor.

Below is just a handful of what we have to offer.  If you have a suggestion on a graphic novel to add to our collection we’d love to know!

Irmina by Barbara Yelin

Call Number: PN6757.Y45 I75 2016

In the mid-1930s, Irmina, an ambitious young German, moves to London. At a cocktail party, she meets Howard Green, one of the first black students at Oxford, who, like Irmina, is working towards an independent existence. However, their relationship comes to an abrupt end when Irmina, constrained by the political situation in Hitler’s Germany, is forced to return home. As war approaches and her contact with Howard is broken, it becomes clear to Irmina that prosperity will only be possible through the betrayal of her ideals. In the award-winning Irmina, Barbara Yelin presents a troubling drama about the tension between integrity and social advancement, reflecting with compassion and intelligence on the complicity that results from the choice, conscious or otherwise, to look away.
