Unshelved
Unshelved | Gene Ambaum, Bill Barnes
Welcome to Unshelved, the world's only daily comic strip set in a public library! Writer Gene Ambaum (the made-up name of a real-life librarian) and co-writer and artist Bill Barnes have been publishing since February 16, 2002. Some of the stories are made up, some of them are based on real life, and some are absolutely true stories sent to us from our readers. And the stranger the story, the more likely it is to be true.

I'm sad Unshelved is ending but happy I will always have the full collection. I backed them on Kickstarter several months ago and my package arrived on Saturday 😀📚

More great #bookmail today! Somehow I had never heard about Unshelved - a comic series about a library - until the Kickstarter for this final print collection popped up a few months ago. I'm excited to dive into this. And I'm even more excited that the USB with digital copies of previous volumes is shaped like a card catalog drawer!

(This final volume isn't in the Litsy database, so I'm posting under one of the previous ones).

Merethebookgal Very cool! 3y
readinginthedark I love this series! Can't wait for my copy to come! 😁 3y
Lacythebookworm Those USB drives are the best! 😊📚 3y

Librarianaut BEST. COMIC. EVAR!!! (Except for maybe Calvin & Hobbes...and Scott Pilgrim...) 3y
EvieBee I read the first in this series and loved it so much! 3y
megt @BethM It doesn't look like they're selling this print volume in their online shop, but they do have the USB, older print volumes, and some other bookish goodies! https://www.topatoco.com/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=TO&Category_Code=UN... 3y
megt @readinginthedark @Librarianaut @EvieBee84 I don't know how I missed out on the series before the Kickstarter put it on my radar. But I'm really looking forward to reading this latest volume and catching up on the older volumes, as well! 3y
megt @Lacythebookworm they really are! Perfectly bookish 😊 3y
readinginthedark @megt I discovered it by accident at a friend's library, where they had the first five or so books. This one isn't talked about very much, unfortunately, which might be why they're ending the series. 3y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Mine arrived today! Did you get yours personalised? 3y
megt @thegirlwiththelibrarybag yay! I didn't get mine personalized, but I still love the autographs. 3y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Yes ☺ nothing like an autographed book 3y
