My many thanks to the Rockford Illinois Public Library for keeping me sane.


  1. I work in a library now, and I'm trying to get the comic collection up to scratch. This looks like a good brach,be sure to tell the staff how much you like it and offer any suggestions to improve/add to it.

  2. Most modern libraries get it now. My local Tampa Florida library is awesome too!

  3. I can find lots of cool stuff in my library in Southampton England too. Got to troll through the Marvel and DC toilet paper to get to it though.

  4. That's an incredible haul of books. I'm in Bristol, UK, and the libraries here are pretty good for comics too, but I don't think they'd let me take out as many as that in one go.
