My name is Brittany Netherton, and I got my start as a comics reader at an early age, reading “The Adventures of Captain Choco” repeatedly on the back of my cereal box. When I was getting my MLS from the University of Kentucky it never occurred to me that comics would ever be more than just something I occasionally purchased for a collection. Luckily for me, the stars aligned in 2018 when my Library’s call to creatively address public health in collections and programming intersected with my love for comics and Graphic Medicine blipped onto my radar. Since then, I have established a dedicated Graphic Medicine collection, created Graphic Medicine Book Club Kits, and spoken about Graphic Medicine in Public Libraries in places such as San Diego Comic Con, New York Comic-Con, and the New England Graphic Medicine Conference.
