Abstract: If anything, the Danish cartoon controversy during the winter of 2006 proved that comics and sequential art hold important places in our lives. While photography and film often still bear the conviction that they are objective — even in this day of digital enhancement and manipulation — drawings show evidence of the human hand and point directly to the person who made them and who may believe in what was drawn. It is therefore important that librarians, and art librarians in particular, become informed about this medium which proves so significant to our patrons and, occasionally, the world.
