Comics & Graphic Books in OverDrive

Recently I set a new goal for myself — I’m trying to mention at least one Library eResource during every readers’ advisory interaction.

I haven’t been quite sure what resource to highlight during interactions with patrons who like comic books and graphic novels.  Today I remembered that OverDrive has graphic content!

It’s super easy to find.  You can either do a search for “comic and graphic books” in the simple search box:

Overdrive search

or go to the Advanced Search page and select “comic and graphic books” in the Subject drop down box:

overdrive advanced

There is a nice variety of materials available, including how to draw titles.  OverDrive’s selection runs the gamut from Jeffrey Brown‘s funny and embarrassing autobiographical comics

to Gothic drama manga

to strange superhero tales

to novels with graphic elements like James Patterson’s Middle School series.


Happy reading and recommending!
