One Week in the Library

Welcome to the Library.
It's here that every story ever written is catalogued and monitored by a single man, who's begun to notice something strange: the books are rebelling. Image Comics proudly presents this experimental graphic novella from writer W. Maxwell Prince and artist John Amor, which recounts a troublesome week in the Library via seven short stories-one for each day-that use comics, infographics, prose, and poetry to play with the graphic medium and explore the multivalent world of living narrative.

    "If I could only use one word to describe One Week in the Library, it would be “meta”. This is a graphic novel that connects all known universes and then breaks the fourth wall down with a sledgeh...
