Library practitioner Serchay, whose personal collection numbers more than 25,000 titles, gives youth librarians the inside scoop on graphic novels so they can make informed choices and attract readership. He describes the most common genres, reasons for purchasing graphic novels and means of their purchase, choosing between mainstream and independent publishers (with a long annotated list), managing the collection, marketing and working with it, and dealing with potential problems, including parental complaints that these are "just comic books."
