Comics, Cartoons, and Sequential Art

Special Collections acquires comic books, cartoons, graphic novels and sequential art. Holdings range from the canonical superhero comics published by major U.S. comic book publishers to smaller, independent publishers.

Special Collections has recently been acquiring entire collections of comic books. This collecting area began with the George Morley Comics Collection. In 2017, UCalgary Professor Bart Beaty, a renowned comics scholar, donated a portion of his own comic book collection. Subsequent donations from community members have added to this growing area of speciality.
