Children's comics are back now. They are located in the Tween area of the Children's Department by the back window. We have more awesome comics than ever before for you to enjoy — Tiny Titans, Transformers, Sonic, Simpsons, Batman, Archie, and Marvel Adventures to name just a few. Current issues are in red binders and can't be checked out, but past issues can be checked out for one week. Come in and check them out!
Our Children's Comics are being moved to a new location, to aisle #19, soon. Until the shelves have been rearranged, they will be temporarily unavailable. We do have some free comics left from Free Comic Book Day and if you would like a few to tide you over, ask at the Children's Desk.
Marvel Universe Fans take note! While waiting for the newest movie to come out, be sure to check out our new Marvel Comics Encyclopedia. If that's checked out, be sure to browse through our awesome graphic novel collection for all your favorite Marvel heroes and heroines! Get your capes and boots on folks — we're going to need them.
If you're looking to pass the time, Pikikids.com lets you create an instant comic strip! It's got lots of little extras to add to the scene, like viking hats and fake noses. Some quick fun for the comic lover! Check it out.
Come to the library on May 1st and pick out a FREE comic book from Comic City. They will be available at the Children's and Teen information desks. Comic City and Mad World Radio are also teaming up for Free Comic Book Day. Music, fun, and prizes are also awaiting you at Comic City in Canton on May 1st beginning at 11:00AM as MWR broadcasts live in the store.
Pearls Before Swine Treasuries: Hilarious, irreverent, funny. The best thing about these treasuries, though, is the author's annotations. See what inspired each strip, wacky stories of reader feedback, and what Stephan Pastis thinks of his own work looking back. Includes 'never before printed' strips, sort of like deleted scenes, with the reasons why. It's a great insight into a comic artist's mind.
We're celebrating FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Come to the Children's Desk on Saturday, May 2 any time between 9am to 6pm and pick up your free comic book, compliments of Comic City. After you get your comic, head down to Comic City for an appearance of the Great Lakes Garrison of the Star Wars 501st Legion! From 10am to 2pm you can take your picture with members of the biggest Imperial Star Wars costuming group in the world.
