This term’s spectacular Wodehouse Library window display features the shortlisted graphic novels and manga for the Stan Lee Excelsior Award 2016.

There you were ambling through the Lower Hall when ka-pow! you were drawn to the Library’s window to marvel at the cover art and, probably, you started pondering how your life currently lacked manga when splat! there it was: The Devil is a Part-Timer!

Zoikes! Then you saw Antman and Lumberjanes

He gets smaller


You realise this window has changed your life! It contains the perfect reading list to get you started with graphic novels and manga. Alternatively this is the shortlist to refresh your palate with a good dose of Vader and Doctor Who (now surely that’s a pairing to rival Superman versus Batman).

Voting ends in April and the Easter holidays are just a few weeks away so drop in, read the books, rate them for goodness and give your completed forms to us here in the Library.
