We’ve done a much-needed update of our graphic novel section, including loads of new manga. It’s currently on display in the library, but here’s a summary of the new titles to get you started! Some are entirely new series, and some are the newest additions to existing series.

Attack on Titan
Hajime Isayama


New volumes: 15, 16, 17

“For the past century, what’s left of mankind has hidden in a giant, three-walled city, trapped in fear of the bizarre, giant humanoids known as the Titans. Little is known about where they came from or why they are bent on consuming human-kind, but the sudden appearance of an enormous Titan is about to change everything.”

Trapped between two worlds, he must survive Ghoul turf wars, learn more about Ghoul society and master his new powers.”
