Graphic Novels at HMCPL

A guide to help navigate our extensive graphic novel collection, broken down my genre and format.

Spotlighting titles in our collection of the super hero genre! Synonymous with comics and graphic novels, this genre is what comes to mind immediately when they're mentioned. Dealing with costumed characters and spanning all the other genres and subjects. In this heading you'll find crime fighters with super powers or not and even villianous rogues. Most iconic super heroes belong to the "big two" publishers- DC (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman) and Marvel (Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man).

For mainstream Marvel & DC titles, the imprint of the publisher is noted in parenthesis after the title, i.e. Batman (New 52), to help browse the chronology of the character. For a timeline of imprints from Marvel & DC scroll down below the table of contents to the sidebar.

Scrolling down on the left-hand side will show complete runs of multi-volume series for binge reading

The current imprint for DC is DC Universe and Marvel is A Fresh Start.

♦ Each Letter has tabs for both "Modern" (post 2000), "Vintage" (pre-2000), & Manga when applicable♦
