Graphic Novels at GSA Library

Over the last few months we've invested heavily in developing a graphic novels collection here at GSA Library. These graphic novels cover a whole range of subjects: from politics to surrealist comedy, and from social issues to rites of passage. We've got novels by renowned graphic novelists like Marjane Satrapi, Daniel Clowes, Joe Sacco and Alan Moore. The cover images above are from just a few examples from our collection.
All graphic novels are shelved alphabetically by author at shelfmark 741.51. Full details of all titles can be found in the Library Catalogue.
You can also find a whole host of online resources on the Library website which will help you discover graphic novels online and held elsewhere.
The film of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, the book of which is stocked in the Library at shelfmark 741.51 has just been shown to acclaim at Cannes where it won the Jury Prize. Here's a quick trailer.
