Comics Plus on demand

| By | < 1 min read

Thousands of digital comics and graphic novels for readers of all ages.

At the end of the Summer, New Woodstock Free Library began offering a new service to our community; a full range of comics that can be digitally accessed by using your current Library Pass.

Your Library Pass allows full digital access on desktop, mobile, or tablet. Every title is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for offline reading, with unlimited, simultaneous checkout.

Comics Plus is a comprehensive online collection of graphic novels; roughly 20,000 titles are available in the full collection and 13,000 in the K–12 categories. Books include award winners—such as “March” and They Called Us Enemy—and titles from big franchises: “Bone,” “Avatar the Last Airbender,” “The Legend of Korra,” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” for starters.

DC and Marvel’s superhero universes are absent, though the Valiant universe and plenty of stand-alone, non-conglomerate superheroes more than adequately fill the void. Nonfiction and memoir comics occupy space alongside surface-level political profiles and ­parodies. A series of curated lists targets subject ­specialties such as Pride, Silly Reads, and Graphic Medicine.

School Library Journal had this to say: “The sheer breadth of content ­represents a value proposition that cannot be ­ignored. With wide-open access for readers and custom title control for institutions, this versatile comics collection will serve graphic novel lovers well.”
