A GOLDEN AGE FOR COMICS
The original Golden Age of comics starts with Action Comics #1, the debut of Superman, and runs until about the early/mid 50s when writers began to update the original characters for modern audiences.

Following that was the Silver Age (mid-50s to early-70s), the Bronze Age (early-70s to early 80s), and currently we're in the Modern Age, which breaks down into little groups along the way.

However, with the rise of graphic novels (really long comic books), the influx and fusion of manga (comics from Japan), and an influence of European comics, many folks consider this to be a new Golden Age of comics! With so many more choices of story genres and art styles, comics are reaching a wider audience, and saying more, than ever before.

And you can see that in our selections below. From the Euro stylings of LUCKY LUKE to the trendy YA savvy MERA and back across to the LGBTQ manga TOTAL ECLIPSE, the comics portion of your library can be as diverse and representative as suits the needs of your community.

We hope you enjoy our picks from the monthly order catalogue and if you ever are interested in seeing what more there is to see each month, you can always visit PREVIEWS WORLD to view the current catalogue and see all the things we see.
(Warning. It's a lot to see.)

Of course, if you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Enjoy comics!
