Dark Horse Donates Comics For First Archive In Nation

Portland State University is going to have the first Comic Book Archive in the nation. Dark Horse Comics, based out of Milwaukie Oregon, has donated over 3000 volumes to the PSU library.

Although this is somewhat less academic than what the PSU Library is used to, they are obviously getting a lot of requests for the comics. Some are using it for gender studies, American pop culture, and violence in literature. Not to mention the fact that there is an almost unlimited source of free reading material. PSU has at least three copies of every issue for every comic that dark horse has ever put out.

Darkhorse, being the third largest comic book publisher in the US, has a multitude of titles available. The best thing about them being available at PSU is that you can get them via Interlibrary Loans from your college.

Just request some Hard Boiled by Frank Miller, or Usagi Yojimbo, and have them send it to your college library. For questions, call the Interlibrary Loan desk at 503.725.3879
