An exhibit at San Diego’s Central Library, on display during 2022 Comic-Con, traces the history of dime novels, pulp fiction, comics and graphic novels.
The fascinating display can be enjoyed on the Central Library’s 9th floor, in the Rare Books room containing their Special Collections.
Some important and rare works are on view, and descriptions provide insight into the history of each popular medium.
If you happen to be passing by the Central Library with its lattice metal dome during Comic-Con, head up the elevator to the rooftop! And go through the door you see in the next photograph!
