The team that brought you The 101 Best Graphic Novels
Writer Stephen Weiner has a long history of bringing Graphic Novels and Libraries together. In 1992, he initiated the "Graphically Speaking" column in Voice of Youth Advocates, which continues to this day. In 1996, he published 100 Graphic Novels for Public Libraries, the only book to address public library graphic novel collection development issues. Since 1997, he has reviewed graphic novels for "Library Journal". He is a frequent speaker at library and academic conferences about graphic novels. He is director of the Maynard Public Library in Maynard, Massachusetts.
As far back as 1990, editor Keith R.A. DeCandido saw the connection between Graphic Novels and Libraries. In 1990, he published the article "Picture This: Graphic Novels in Libraries", the first article about graphic novels ever appearing in "Library Journal". In the mid 1990s, DeCandido edited a line of very successful novels featuring comic book characters.
