Comic books, manga and the films/cartoons based on them are turning up more and more in college classrooms and academic libraries. This guide is meant as a means to help start your research on comic books (focus is on American mainstream titles for now).  Click on the tabs above to find starting points for your research (e-books, background research, articles, videos, citation tips for comics, etc.)

[from the Viz translation of the library-centric manga, Library Wars. Read more about it here.]
