New!! Underground and Independent Comics, Comix, and Graphic Novels Database

We now have access to the Alexander Street Press database Underground and Independent Comics, Comix, and Graphic Novels: Volume I

This is the first ever scholarly, primary-source database focused on comic books and graphic novels. Works of artists both celebrated and overlooked, alongside interviews, criticism, and journal articles that document the continual growth and evolution of this artform. The aim of this collection is to provide a comprehensive view of alternative comics from the 1960s to today, particularly those from North America.


You can make playlists of different themes and save, share, or present them for classes.

Includes online access to The Comics Journal from 1976-2004, which we also have a print subscription to.

This database was funded by an Alkek Library One-Time Online Resource Grant. I am very excited to announce it to you all! Learn more about One-Time Online Resource Grants available for faculty and librarians to apply for.

Questions? Please ask me, Tara Spies Smith, YOUR Art & Design Librarian, ts20@txstate.edu
