Did you know that in 2020, sales of graphic novels and comics increased an impressive 29 percent* from the year before? While comics and graphic novels have always been popular with children and teens, even grownups have been turning to this innovative artistic format in record numbers.
Here at Coquitlam Public Library, our print collection of graphic novels and comics has long been one of our most popular collections. This popularity is the reason we decided to expand our collection with a subscription to ComicsPlus, a collection of 20,000+ (and growing) graphic novels, manga and comics in digital format for children, teens and adults.
ComicsPlus covers a wide range of genres and topics, in fiction and nonfiction. Titles include Garfield, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Big Nate, Bone, Minecraft, Geronimo Stilton, George Martin’s The Game of Thrones, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, Stranger Things, as well as critically acclaimed titles such as Sin City, Blacksad, March and They Called Us Enemy. With ComicsPlus, you can read your favorite titles and discover a wide range of new ones.
Best of all—ComicsPlus titles have unlimited borrowing, meaning there is no waiting and no holds are necessary. Read them on a computer or download the LibraryPass app for Apple or Android devices. Access the collection with your library card and PIN.
