FANS in South Craven of comics and graphic novels can now download them from North Yorkshire’s libraries service.

A collection of more than 1,500 – catering for all ages – can be downloaded to any digital device.

Included are titles from major publishers such as Marvel, Disney, Dark Horse and IDW.

Chrys Mellor, libraries general manager with North Yorkshire County Council, said: “Comics are big news with the ongoing success of the Marvel superhero films, for example, so this is an opportunity for fans to read new adventures featuring favourite characters.

“To download items, you just need to be a member of the library.”

The comics are provided through the RB Digital platform, which the libraries service has used for some time to offer magazines and audio e-books. Browse at northyorks.gov.uk/download-e-books-e-magazines-and-digital-audiobooks.
