One Week in the Library

by

Welcome to the Library.
It's here that every story ever written is catalogued and monitored by a single man, who's begun to notice something strange: the books are rebelling. Image Comics proudly presents this experimental graphic novella from writer W. Maxwell Prince and artist John Amor, which recounts a troublesome week in the Library via seven short stories-one for each day-that use comics, infographics, prose, and poetry to play with the graphic medium and explore the multivalent world of living narrative.

    I don't know what I expected going into this book but I was very entertained. It honestly reminded me of my Creative Writing class. It's a graphic novel novella told in short stories per chapter for e...

    A book I liked that I could have loved, if not for the utterly abysmal, abandoned, deus ex machina ending....

    "If I could only use one word to describe One Week in the Library, it would be “meta”. This is a graphic novel that connects all known universes and then breaks the fourth wall down with a sledgeh...
