stray thought on comics circulation

So I’ve been working at a big library for several years now…pulling and shelving books en masse, hundreds in a row…and yesterday was legit the first time I’ve seen someone check out a Dilbert book.

We have a whole shelf of them! All the other newspaper comics in the same section do numbers! The almost total dearth of Dilbert interest is kind of amazing.

Hands-down winner is Baby Blues, btw. It’s the rare day I don’t interact with a Baby Blues collection.

Other biggest recurring hits: Doonesbury, For Better Or For Worse, Foxtrot, Garfield, Little Orphan Annie

Not in such high rotation, but still going around: The Boondocks, Calvin and Hobbes, Cathy, Dick Tracy, Krazy Kat, Little Nemo in Slumberland, Nancy, Peanuts, Pearls Before Swine, The Phantom, Prince Valiant, our one single Sally Forth collection, Terry and the Pirates, Zippy, Zits
