Book Club takes comics to a new level

Comic books are not just for kids. And if you haven’t read one since you were a kid, they might be worth checking out again.

In an age of blockbuster action hits at the box office, comic books and graphic novels are a relevant resource for fans of the superhero genre. And the Noble Public Library seeks to find that audience through its newest monthly book discussion group, the Sacred Panels Book Club.

The group is the brain child of librarian David Brown based on his interests and expertise. He has led a presentation on graphic novels and comic books as literature in a Staff Day presentation for colleagues with the Pioneer Library System, and currently teaches a graphic novel class at the University of Oklahoma.

“My vision for the group for the group was to bring in something people are reading, from their collection, something they own, talk about what we’re reading and enjoying it right then,” Brown said.

“The name was originally an idea for a podcast based on Harry Potter themed podcasts. It’s a way to introduce people to literature in another way through reading and getting into comic books.”
