Ocean County Library, hoopla® Launch Online Graphic Novel Book Club

April 30, 2020

TOMS RIVER – Dazzling illustrations and gripping, relatable story lines give graphic novels their popularity. The Ocean County Library and hoopla® give teens and adults a new way to enjoy new and landmark graphic novels together, instantly and digitally.

The first-ever hoopla® Graphic Novel Book Club features Runaways, Vol. 1: Pride and Joy, by Brian K. Vaughan, with illustrations by Adrian Alphona, as its initial Spotlight Selection.

The intriguing, fast-paced series focuses on six friends who, discovering that they’ve been raised by super-villains, team up to overcome the evil they were expected to assume. It highlights themes such as truthfulness, secrets, and good versus evil.

Graphic Novel Book Club participants also will find information and links for related, recommended reading material.
