Welcome to Graphic Literacy.org!

Graphic Literacy is a London, ON-based venture that started from a Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) course Western University. Although only in its beginning stages, the website is set to become a resource for all things related to graphic novels and comic books (in both an extracurricular and an academic sense). In particular, the site will aim to act as a resource for the London, ON area (although there are hopes to expand to surrounding areas in time).

We've been lucky enough to have already garnered a following during the time leading up to the site's launch and we're exceedingly grateful for that. Such support will help ensure the growth and continual development of the site.

We're also on Facebook and Twitter, so feel free to check us out there as well!
