We have been adding some great new titles to the Library’s Adult Graphic Novel collection. Here are just a few of the recent acquisitions which can be found in the collection on the 1st floor (titles are linked to the Library’s catalogue):
by Michael DeForge
From its opening pages, Ant Colony immerses the reader in a world that is darkly existential, with false prophets, unjust wars, and corrupt police officers, as it follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. On the surface, it’s the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants’ all too familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns—loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. All of this is done with humor and sensitivity, exposing a world where spiders can wreak unimaginable amounts of havoc with a single gnash of their jaws.
by Jeff Lindsay; Illustrated by Dalibor Talajic
