Comic Arts Research Guide
Thanks to the generosity of donors, we have amassed more than 50,000 non-circulating floppy comics and countless graphic novels in both our special and circulating collections. The collection emphasizes alternative and independent titles, underground comix, drawn books and Modern Age comics, as well as materials that document the history of comic book culture, fandom and the creative process behind comic book production. Noteworthy holdings include a large collection of ephemera and memorabilia from fan conventions, full runs of RAW Magazine and Milestone Comics, feminist literature, self-published and mini-comics, French language comics, several popular manga series, and vintage comics and comic strips, including Disney Comics.
We encourage comics-related research and welcome opportunities to help you access the materials you need. Please take a look at the links on this guide and feel free to ask us for more help!
