The Summer for Comic Book Lovers

by Heather S

This has truly been the summer for those who love comic books and the superheroes who fight crime in them. We have seen history being made with the release of the latest in the Batman saga – The Dark Knight grossing over $155 million dollars in a weekend, beating the record set by Spiderman 3. We have also seen the launch and hopefully permanent establishment of Marvel Studios with the successful release of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.

By now, you may be asking yourself why would the Library blog about movies based on comic books. Well, I am glad you asked. Since the Library is the place that has a little for everyone, we also have something for comic book lovers. We have books for those interested in learning more about the superheroes and their origins, we have quite a few of the films and cartoons on DVDs and we even have a few comic books. So the next time you are in between movies and want to refresh your memory, check out the library. We may have just what you need. Below is a select list of what we have available.
