Posts Tagged ‘global graphic novels’

town boyfilm projectorI have updated the site with two new lists: a list of ‘Great Global Graphix‘ with graphic novels and picture books from a variety of locales and a list of ‘Fantastic Films from Afar,’ which has suggestions for animated films, docudramas, and even horror films from afar.

Though the central focus of my blog and research project is to collect and evaluate international young adult books, I have chosen to expand the scope of my collection to also include films and graphix both due to emerging multi-media trends within the library, as well as very real issues of accessibility in collecting for this topic. These two formats are very popular and circulate well within the library, yet they appear on few ‘international’ lists I have seen, in spite of the relative ease of access in obtaining these titles — i.e. international films are much easier to access with subtitles than books in translation might be, and manga and graphic novels are some of the most popular works of ‘international YA’ currently on our shelves.

These lists are organized by title, and each include summaries and country designations – both for publication and, if different than country of publication, for story setting. These lists are a work in progress though so if there are titles or films I have overlooked, please comment with any suggestions for additions.
