Archival Quality – A Comic By Librarians, About Librarians, Possibly For Librarians

CbqmHVRUMAIUVA0

 

Ivy Noelle Weir and Christina Stewart are both librarians. One writes, the other draws. Together they fight crime.

No wait.

Together, they have a new comic from Oni Press coming out next year, Archival Quality. About… librarians.

Celeste (Cel) Walden is a twenty-ish college dropout turned library assistant turned Munroe Museum image archivist. She likes reading, cooking, and generally not being bothered by other people’s drama. Smart, confident, occasional crybaby.

Kyle Beresin is Cel’s boyfriend of five years. He is a line cook and a bit of a spaz. Has a beard.

I think it could be very popular amongst all sorts of people – but especially librarians. Smart.
