Hi David!

I just came across your blog (being new to the whole blogging thing), and enjoy it quite a bit.

I also wanted to give a thumbs up to all of those librarians out there (like you) who are obviously comic book fans. I regularly search my local library system's selection of trade paperbacks, and have enjoyed a ton of stuff I've heard others talking about for years, such as "Y: The Last Man" and "Fables".

When I was talking to a librarian, she had said trade paperbacks of comic book material are some of their most popular it's great to see such an interest generated from comics. Perhaps libraries will be the "salvation" of the comics biz, much moreso than the rather insulated and introverted world of the local comics shop.

Anyway, great to see your library's on top of things. Hopefully more library systems will pick up the pace (my friend in San Diego says it's pretty slim pickings for TPBs in their system).
