There was a time when Dr. Wertham tried to get rid of comics, as I’ve been chronicling. Well, nowadays comics are finally getting the love they deserve. Here’s an article from the Oxford University Press’s blog (h/t to Four Color Media Monitor) about comics being collected by libraries, which namedrops the book. Now libraries are seeing the value in comics, and you can find comics from independent publishers like my Art Soundoff compatriots that you might not see in comic stores, so check those out. Just remember to bring them back on time.
