T h e G r ap h i c Ca n o n L i b r a r y “In my Library Materials for Young Adults course, I asked my students to read at least one chapter from The Graphic Canon Volume I and the corresponding text in its original format. It was really interesting to hear their reactions and ideas for how the text may appeal to young adults and pique their interest in what we call canonical literature. They were also intrigued by how stories are changed or preserved in different formats, and how such adaptations keep literature alive in new and refreshing ways.” —Sarah Park Dahlen, assistant professor in the St. Catherine University Master of Library and Information Science Program

The Graphic Canon, vols. 1–3 Edited by Russ Kick The classic canon of Western civilization meets the artists and illustrators who have remade reading in the last years of the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty-first century in this three-volume series. Editor Russ Kick has commissioned new work from over 160 artists, including Robert & Maxon Crumb, Dame Darcy, Hunt Emerson, P. Craig Russell, and many more, as well as re-introduced existing work that wasn’t easy to find, identifying the artists and works contributing to a shift in the reading experience, expanding readers’ visual vocabulary through the creation of a new kind of canon. “A must-buy for all academic libraries, many public libraries, and many high schools, and an exciting new benchmark for comics!” —Library Journal
