Comics Plus!

August 29, 2022

There are more comics available to read now than ever before, and Nashville Public Library has another way for you to access them: Comics Plus. This app works like Hoopla, with no wait times on items and no holds required. Comics Plus features work from familiar publishers like Archie, Dark Horse, and Valiant, but it also has a deep bench of work from international publishers like the French-American Humanoids and Japan’s Kodansha. In fact, if you’re looking for manga, Comics Plus has enough titles to last you until the next Neo-Tokyo Olympics.

Masamune Shirow gained fame in the US for his cyberpunk classic Ghost in the Shell, but on Comics Plus you can read some of his earlier works like Appleseed, about a mech-SWAT team in a dystopian future, which influenced countless creators in the 1990s.

The “plus” in Comics Plus is where you’ll find some very exciting work, like art books from classic and contemporary video games to artist editions by comics greats Frank Thorne and Jose Gonzalez. Comics Plus has too much good stuff for just one blog post, so what are you waiting for? Check out Comics Plus today!
