Celebrating Banned Graphic Novels!

If you have been to the Tyler libraries, you know we have a thing for graphic novels.  Just like other banned or challenged books, graphic novels face the same criticisms.  Because these works deal specifically in pictures, they sometime face more scrutiny and censure.  So in addition to celebrating the top ten banned books, we present the banned or challenged graphic novels available at the Tyler libraries!
