A Subject Index to Comic Books and Related Material.
Scott, Randall W.
The original problem of the Special Collections division of the Michigan State University Library (MSU) was to establish a direction for the comic book section of the popular culture collection, and to state the holdings in the chosen area. The comics chosen as the target collection were the superhero comics of the 1960's through 1975, as this was the most nearly complete collection. The author's definition of a superhero is included. Through the study of the comic collection, a system for cataloging and indexing comics was developed. Information provided by the cataloging system includes a call number, title, publisher, issues published, notes, MSU holdings, and additional holdings as reprints. This information is tabulated for the superhero comics in the collection and also for the western comics, war and military comics, romance comics, and others. The card catalog for the comic collection contains Author-Title cards and Subject Index cards for each item in the collection. A list of subject headings and an author-title list of all holdings in the MSU collection are included. (JAB)
