Welcome to James Lyng Library

Off the Shelf

In celebration of Free Comic Book Day, Ray Silas, co-owner of Crossover Comics in St. Henri, recently visited the library to talk to Cycle I students about the history and value of comics. Students asked Ray to share his vast knowledge of the form, as well as what inspired him to start his own comic book store. Students also learned about the structures and features of comics, tested their learning with a fun trivia contest, and went home with a bundle of free comics, thanks to Crossover Comics and Komico stores.
