On Representation and Libraries
Last month, a journalist named Pete shot me a message requesting help with a story he was putting together for University. I was happy to answer his questions, and the final result was published online not too long ago: “Marvel and D.C. comics fail at affirmative action.” I recommend giving it a read and picking through the extensive data analysis he’s provided, which really highlights the changing comic book market.
In the same vein, I got a pingback in my inbox from a different author– turns out my Women Don’t Read Comics article was linked to in a piece by Director for Library Undergraduate Services at Oklahoma State University, Matt Upson: Comics on Campus: Starting a Successful Graphic Novel Collection at Your Academic Library. Another important read, especially for you scholars out there!
