In short, Nancy and Kathleen are two librarians in the Chicagoland area who love graphic novels! They created this site for a school project and decided to keep it going.

Kathleen is a university librarian but still keeps a part-time job at a public library to run an ongoing teen program. She majored in art in undergrad before going to grad school and in her spare time paints (traditionally and digitally), writes, reads, plays video games, and goes to concerts and binge-watches shows with her husband.

Nancy is a married mother of three who is thrilled that she is paid to indulge her passions- combining her interests in Star Trek, Star Wars, YA novels and making crafts into a job she loves as Head of Teen Services at a small-town public library.

We’ve compiled our favorites and classics on the “Recommendations” page. The “Resources” page is filled with websites about graphic novel news, history, and more. Our blog posts contain reviews of graphic novels that we have read and love… or maybe not loved so much. Enjoy your stay!
