In the past I have mentioned the wonderful site, No Flying, No Tights. This website is done by a librarian, for librarians and is all about graphic novels. There are three portals here, the main No Flying No tights site for teens, The Lair for older teens and adults, and Sidekicks for children.
Each site has plenty of reviews, links, and articles about helping patrons of all ages to find graphic novels.
Recently, the publisher of No Flying, No Tights, Robin Brenner was a guest on Longshots, the library related podcast by Sarah Long, Director of the North Suburban Library system. Use this link to listen to Robin talk about graphic novels, blogging, and where she got the name for the site. I found this interview very interesting and helpful.
On a side note, you can also hop on over to this podcast when I was a guest on Longshots back in 2007.
