Digital Comics

Two important early comic books from our collections are now available digitally through the efforts of the Library's digital production team:  The Adventures of Mr. Obadiah Oldbuck (1842) the first graphical novel published in the United States, originally published in French in 1837 as Les Amours de M. Vieux Bois; and The Fortunes of Ferdinand Flipper (185?), the first graphical novel written in the United States.  Both digitized comics will be used by students this term in English 67: Graphic Novels.
To see the good old fashioned paper copies, ask for Rare Book NC1659.T58 A6213 1840z and Rare Book NC1420.F68.
