One Week in the Library by W. Maxwell Prince

Into the Wild

Read One Week in the Library Online Free - Welcome to the Library.
It's here that every story ever written is catalogued and monitored by a single man, who's begun to notice something strange: the books are rebelling. Image Comics proudly presents this experimental graphic novella from writer W. Maxwell Prince and artist John Amor, which recounts a troublesome week in the Library via seven short stories-one for each day-that use comics, infographics, prose, and poetry to play with the graphic medium and explore the multivalent world of living narrative.

Bllleeeeeeeecccchhh. As a librarian, I'm obviously compelled to purchase all library related titles (except the sleazy romance ones - trust me, your librarian does NOT want to fuck you). I fell prey to this with One Week in the Library and it was so bad I'm actually mad about it. This was complete...

This is one of those books that's very concerned with what people think of it. It desperately wants to be thought of as terribly clever, forgetting that the best way to achieve that is to simply be clever. All clear? No? I suppose a bit more detail is in order. So there's this library. It's a magi...

WTF? I mean...the thought of a librarian dealing with books that are rebelling in his surreal library sounds pretty cool, right? Well - that's not what this was. Instead, we got 7 short stories (one for each day of the week) that really had absolutely no impact on me whatsoever. I guess the Wooden B...

More like a 2.5. This wasn't anything like I expected. It had a lot of potential, but it didn't hit the marks for me.

I just read some of these reviews and discovered I am not alone here! I requested the library I work at purchase this and was so excited when I started reading it. Short stories as graphic novels about rebellious books?! What a fun sounding premise. But that ENDING. Will had me the whole time unt...

This one started slow, and confusing, so I ended up abandoning it midway, until I picked it up again after a couple of months. Only when I started reading it again, that pace picks up on the approach to the ending. This would have been served better if there was a writer's commentary on the storie...

Read because it was nominated for an Eisner award (best short story). I thought it started strong. The narrator is stuck in a magical library and reads books that leap into his reality. From the printed into physical reality. I thought, this is something Borges would write if he wrote comics! But...

A fascinating series of stories covering a week inside of a surrealistic library. We interviewed Will and John recently for The Comics Alternative, and it was fascinating to talk with them about the genesis and development of this project.

A book I liked that I could have loved, if not for the utterly abysmal, abandoned, deus ex machina ending.
