The Comic Book and Graphic Novel Collection is based around several large donations from collectors. It consists of approximately 1,200 titles (over 4000 issues) of comic books, graphic novels and trade editions, and trade magazines and fanzines. Much of our comic book collection dates from the 1970s forward, with particular strength in the 1990s. We do not hold a significant number of Golden Age or Silver Age comics. A large portion of the collection is minimally processed, and there are gaps in runs of titles. We continually add to this collection, chiefly through donations.
