One Week in the Library


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 fascinating series of stories covering a week inside of a surrealistic library. We interviewed Will and John recently for The Comics Alternative, and it was fascinating to talk with them about the g...

    I wanted to enjoy it more, but it didn't feel like it was going anywhere. The premise, as I took it, was one I liked: a librarian is taking care of a wayward library that's rebelling; however, I feel ...
