My name is Sharon Daugherty and I work for the Penn State Harrell Health Sciences Library and Learning Commons in Hershey, PA, and I love comics.
The photo you see here was the first of many graphic novel displays to come! I created a display to inspire our library patrons to think of comics as a valid and serious vehicle for storytelling. Comics can involve real people, not just capes and kid stuff.
Some faculty still have a mindset that graphic novels aren’t serious literature. I think this is slowly changing since Dr. Michael Green started the Graphic Medicine curriculum on our campus.
