We are excited to announce the installation of our new Graphic Novel display in the rear of the Reference Area on the main floor of Hutchins Library. There are a lot of cool new titles to check out, such as:
- Chew – The story of Tony Chu, a detective who is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. He works for the Special Crimes Division of the FDA and has the responsibility of investigating their strangest, sickest, and most bizarre cases.
- I Kill Giants – “Barbara Thorson, a girl battling monsters both real and imagined, kicks butt, takes names, and faces her greatest fear in this bittersweet, coming-of-age story!” (description courtesy of amazon.com)
- The Walking Dead: Compendium One – If you’re a fan of the Emmy Award-winning TV show of the same name, then you owe it to yourself to pick this up. This is the first 48 issues of the comic collected for your convenience in one mega-sized book of awesome. If you’ve never heard of the series, here it is a nutshell: a man wakes up in the hospital one day to find that the world has degenerated into something he doesn’t even recognize because of a Zombie Apocalypse. If you want to know what happens next, check it out!
