Cressman Library Comics Collection

Our collection of Graphic Novels, Manga, and Comics is located on the main floor of the library, outside of the Convergence Lab. Items in the collection are arranged by title.

Comics and Literature

Comics studies is the academic field that looks at comics and other forms of sequential art. This includes graphic novels, comic books, manga, comic strips, and other similar forms. Cedar Crest College offers a course in comics studies, taught by Dr. Peter Nagy. The resources collected in this LibGuide will help you research and gain insight into this emerging field of academic study.


We are constantly looking to expand and improve our collection of graphic literature. If you have any suggestions for new acquisitions, contact Nick Galante:
