Check out our staff celebrating Halloween, one of the easiest times to display our love of comics in the library.


My library decided to do a themed costume day and all be heroes of different types.  I decided to go as my own special version of Wonder Woman.  Hope you all had a happy Halloween!



Wearing my Green Lantern costume to the library!  We should form a special librarian Justice League.



My 1940s Barbara Gordon costume went over very well — and I may just keep the bat symbols on my shoes.

Also, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying The Mary Sue‘s coverage of great costumes like Princess Dalek and, of course, Princess Deadpool.
