Banned Books Week: Challenged Graphic Novels

Now through Saturday, October 6th is Banned Books Week, a yearly event that celebrates the freedom to read. Over the years, many books, including graphic novels, have been challenged, due to sensitive topics or what some individuals consider inappropriate content. The library aims to provide a cornucopia of titles, ranging from all subjects, without censorship.

Listed below are challenged graphic novels. For more information about these challenged titles and other books, visit Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and go to Resources, Banned Comics, then Banned & Challenged Comics. Check one out and see what you think!
