Myself & a colleague at Hounslow library have arranged to visit a
specialist shop in this genre in the New Year to purchase Manga comics. We
have tended to avoid them in the past because of their reputation for
explicit violence & sexual content.
What is the stance of other libraries on purchasing Manga comics?
And if libraries do stock Manga, how do they shelve them? Is there a
separate place for Graphic Novels with adult content, or are they placed
together with TinTin & Asterik?
Any advice & information would be appreciated.
