Abstract

For the first time ever, Texas Woman's University libraries participated in Free Comic Book Day, a nationwide event that promotes the reading and adoption of comic books and graphic novels. Being an academic library, it was important to relate the comic book day to a university environment, so a presentation was included about the merits of comic books in academia. Ideas for partnering with comic book shops, marketing, and displays will be including in the presentation.
