Children's Literature: Comics & Graphic Novels

A research guide for locating children's and young adults' literature available through and beyond the Tyndale libraries.

About this page

Graphic novels and comic books are fun to read. They can also be great tools to use for literacy comprehension and for getting reluctant readers to read - especially boys.

The ABBA Resource Centre houses a growing collection of graphic novels that can be used to reach reluctant readers.

This page is intended to be your gateway to information on graphic novels.
