Collection Development Policy Statement: Comics

Comic Tie-Ins

When a comic book or strip generates a movie, there are likely to be thousands of licensed items (calendars, coloring books, posters, ink blotters, novelizations, lapel buttons, neckties, t-shirts, etc.) that are related. Even less prominent comic books and strips sometimes have success in licensing. Such items are always accepted when offered as gifts, and are purchased very selectively, in order to have available a representative selection of the kinds of objects that have been produced. Catalogs and other reference works that list these items are purchased.

Collecting intensity: 2.
