Comic Books

About alphabetical order: We are following the common practice of disregarding such words as “a,” “an,” “the” and their non-English equivalents when setting alphabetical order in these lists. For example, the book A Place to Stand would be alphabetically ordered under “P” rather than “A,” and the magazine De Nationale Hitparade under “N” rather than “D.”

All Collection holdings are publicly accessible. Box numbers, such as COMIC-1, and microfilm reel numbers identify the location of documents in the Collection. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for details.
