Reader's Advisory

Reader's Advisory Review

If Cheers had taken place in a public library it might have been something like the hugely popular Internet-only comic strip Unshelved. Follow the adventures of a young librarian named Dewey, his dysfunctional coworkers, and the people they're supposed to be helping. With no continuity and the best art and writing of the series, this latest collection is a great place for new readers to jump in and discover an unfamiliar side of a very familiar place.
