The comic book collection in the BPCL, 50,000+ strong and still growing, is divided into two collections - the general and the Bravard. Each collection includes commercially produced comics, magazine-style comics and independent/underground comics. The time period ranges from the 1930's to the present. Some titles are also available on microfiche to supplement missing and/or particular old issues. All title and issues can be found in the library catalog.
BGSU's comic book collection has been built throughout the past 40 years and is largely dependent upon donations from the public. It includes comics related to superheroes (i.e. Superman, Batman), cartoon characters (i.e. Woody Woodpecker, Bugs Bunny), westerns (e.g. Jonah Hex), romances, science fiction, mysteries, and other genres. The collection is used for entertainment and research purposes. Other topics include, but are not limited to: Classics Illustrated series, TV and movie tie-ins, Obama/Kennedy/Biden.
