Over the years at No Flying No Tights, we’ve aimed to help library staff creating and maintaining comics collections by providing consistent, library-centric reviews. Now, we’re delighted to begin offering you a new tool: monthly reader’s advisory lists!

We have periodically, but admittedly non consistently, published lists including our Core Lists, our Must-Have lists, and our write ups of canon titles Classic Fantastic. We’re happy to announce a new monthly series of reader’s advisory and collection development lists, starting today, intended to help all of you find and collect the best titles for your collections.  These lists will be created and coordinated by our crack team including Features coordinators Martha and Traci, dedicated Feature writer Megan, and editor Mariela.

First up, we have our updated Pride list to serve all of your LGBTQIA+ reader’s needs.

Keep an eye out for news lists coming at least once a month from here on out at No Flying No Tights.  Next up, Manga for Middle School!
