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...

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.

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...

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...

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

I don't know what I expected going into this book but I was very entertained. It honestly reminded me of my Creative Writing class. It's a graphic novel novella told in short stories per chapter for each day. It's rather dark (definitely not for children) but so good. It does some really interest...

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.

I wanted to enjoy it more, but it didn't feel like it was going anywhere. The premise, as I took it, was one I liked: a librarian is taking care of a wayward library that's rebelling; however, I feel that it could have had more direction and then more play with the premise. It didn't seem to go t...
