Comic Books in Action

The Comic Books Collection at the University of North Texas was developed after Doug Campbell’s donation of 1,600 comic books on behalf of his grandmother, Floydine Campbell (1917-2014). The collection also includes the 98 Classics Illustrated comic books donated by Clifford and Shaun Seibel in 2008.

In 2011, Doug Campbell offered to donate his entire set of comic books in honor of his grandmother, Floydine Campbell. Campbell’s grandmother had been instrumental in growing his personal collection. She purchased the comic books at her job at The Leonard Pharmacy in Leonard, Texas. When he visited his grandmother, she would often have more comic books for him to read and enjoy. Campbell wanted to share that joy with others by donating his comic books to the library’s special collections.

The UNT collection of Classics Illustrated Comics was donated by Sean and Clifford Seibel in 2008. These comics retell famous novels by a wide range of classic authors. In addition to Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage, we have nearly 100 other issues to read!

Comic books are the subject of study across multiple disciplines at UNT are regularly used as research and teaching tools.  UNT is home to the annual Comic Studies Conference which brings together faculty, students and librarians to discuss the diverse ways that comic books influence our culture.
 
This exhibit will feature a display of our comic books from UNT Special Collections including DC, Marvel, and other classic publishers.
