Great for Comic Fans & Librarians!
This is a fantastic podcast. I love being able to listen to fellow comic fans talking about what’s interesting them and I especially love to hear what fellow librarians are doing with comics and graphic novels. I’ve gotten a handful of titles to add to my TBR pile already.
Informative and Fun
You don’t have to be a librarian to enjoy Librarians Assemble! but - since I am one - I enjoy it even more. Good discussions of how comics/graphic novels work in a library setting, excellent guests, and just an all-around fun time.
This show is mine, and I like it
Yea, I’m not above writing a review for my own podcast. Anyway, check out the podcast if you like comics, libraries, pop culture, or any combination of those things. Thanks!
