Greetings colleagues, from Tulane,

Increasingly, the book ordering slips I receive from various vendors  include 
comics.


  *   Are comics now an authentic literary genre?


  *   Do you add them to your collection, and if so, how do you select?


  *   What kind of patron access do you provide?  Do they circulate?

Here's an example of a slip for a comic book from the French vendor Amalivre, 
with the vendor's highest, 3 star rating:
