Library Journal | 09/15/2017
Goldsmith (Graphic Novels Now: Building, Managing, and Marketing a Dynamic Collection) updates her 2010 work to provide practical tools for librarians to select relevant graphic novels for children, teens, and adults. After dispelling myths that comics are for children or readers with low literacy skills, the author maintains that in fact these books require multiple literacies as they combine written and visual cues to convey meaning. New readers' advisors must not only read a wide array of graphic novels that cover the entire breadth of the format but also understand how the format is constructed and why illustrated works appeal to readers. Divided by age level and genre, this volume includes more than 350 annotated recommendations, with descriptions of plot and visual style. Goldsmith also suggests online and print resources that survey current trends and new titles. VERDICT This work will appeal primarily to librarians who already have an interest in the subject. Also consider Michael Pawuk's Graphic Novels: A Genre Guide to Comic Books, Manga, and More. Chris Wilkes, Tazewell Cty. P.L., VA. 215p. LIBRARY JOURNAL, c2017.

This updated guide to providing readers' advisories for graphic novels makes a strong case that the format deserves equal attention as other formats in library collections, and that anyone doing readers' advisory work should be including them in their repertoire. Acknowledging the complexity of, and dispelling common myths about, graphic novels, Goldsmith equips the librarian to be an advocate for the format. This book covers in-depth the unique appeal factors of the graphic novel and explains how to guide readers in crossing over from other formats. Because graphic novels are a format not a genre, this guide has the added responsibility of tackling many genres and Goldsmith does so expertly. Organized into eleven chapters, the text contains specific advice for various ages (children, tweens, teens, and adults). While lists do abound here, it is less a directory of titles than a lesson on how to work with these books. Annotations for each title are tightly crafted, providing substantial summary, appeal factors, and descriptions of artwork styles. Those looking for more lists will find many suggestions on where to find them in the final chapter. This book is intended for librarians and library staff, but it would be a great textbook for library school courses on graphic novels and/or readers' advisory. Goldsmith makes points that go beyond what one might expect from this guide, providing suggestions such as where and how to shelve graphic novels and efforts librarians can make to become better known as experts in their community. The appendix, laid out as a course with specific reading suggestions, is particularly useful for the advisor new to graphic novels. This is a book to spend time with, not flip through, although a strong index and table of contents make it easily consultable for patron interactions as well.--Allison Babin. 224p.
