Parent: You’re not allowed to come to the library anymore.
Kid: But I like to read. And you want me to read.

Parent: Well, you’re not allowed to talk to the librarians anymore.
Kid: What about when I need help with my homework?

Parent: You’re only allowed to talk to librarians about school-related subjects.
Kid: So math, history, art, those sorts of things?

Parent: Yes, thank you.
Kid: I’m researching how much money, historically, Michelangelo was paid to paint all those naked people.

Welcome to Library Comic!

Hey there,

You’re here at the very beginning. Thanks for joining us. It’s good to have you here! Our first comic will post tomorrow.

Library Comic is about the goings on at a large library with a large staff. (Chris and I have been quietly working on it for months as we wrapped up work on Unshelved.) We’re going to infuse it with the all sorts of realistic weirdness on both sides of the desk as we get to know the characters we’ve created. Right now our vision is that the central character will change from time to time, and I want the patrons to get as many good lines as the librarians, but we’ll see what happens. So far it’s been great fun, even though Chris is keeping me from having patrons clip their toenails in every comic (this is, apparently, my go-to weird/repulsive library patron behavior right now.)

But I digress. We’d love to hear how you like it. And send us your stories.

Plus, pretty please, sign up for our newsletter + tell all your friends.
