Graphic Novels in Local Libraries - Petworth, Washington, DC (June 2022)

Give them an Excellent rating, as there's a very surprisingly good selection in NW DC. Some hard core porn too with Crepax. The Story of My Tits by Jennifer Hayden highlighted by facing out. Local publisher Lost Art Books on Matt Baker included too. Ben Katchor highlighted. Daniel Corsetto's boxed Girls with Slingshots complete set. Light on superheroes, but they're still included. Tell me what interested you in the comments!
