Each year for Law & Comics we bring in a few new books to complement the year’s theme. This year, we are proud to have selected the following works by independent creators. The books are on display currently and will be available to circulate after July 25.

Independent creators keep control over their creations rather than create characters for another company (like Spider-Man for Marvel Comics). The first 4 of our selections  were self-published in the beginning, meaning that the individual creators formed their own companies to publish their works. Jaime Hernandez, along with his brother, Gilbert, kept control of their creation, Love and Rockets, but used Fantagraphics to publish the work. Our final book is Scott McCloud’s exploration about how to make comics, including how to structure panels and pages, and what makes for a good character.

Join us Tuesday, July 19, at 4 pm for a fun discussion of the triumphs and travails of being an independent creator.
