Comics on hoopla

If you are a lover of comic books and graphic novels like me, you may already know that comics are available on hoopla. If not, you might want to familiarize yourself with it and share this with your patrons. It’s a great feature of hoopla!


All of the major publishers are available on hoopla – DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Boom! and so many more. You can find titles such as Wonder Woman, Teen Titans, Archie, and Blade Runner. There are comics for every age group as well.

If you or a patron are interested in reading comics but don’t know where to start, I always recommend looking for titles from a movie, show, or book that you are already familiar with. For example, if you love Star Wars look for a graphic novel with Star Wars characters such as Star Wars: Han Solo by Marjorie Liu.

Happy reading!
