Comics and Manga

Graphic Novel Discussion Group @ Main

The Graphic Novel Discussion Group at the Main Library, founded in 2012, is a group for adults to talk about comics, manga, comic-themed films and television, as well as nerdy pop culture.

Each month we discuss a particular work or a theme. If you aren’t sure of what to read or are interested in seeing past topics, check out our Suggested Reading List.
