The Periodic Table of Laughter: Comics: Cartoons: Graphic Novels

September 11th, 2021 · No Comments · City Library, Main Branch, West Branch

An ancient proverb said “laughter is the best medicine.” With the difficulties of this past year, we could certainly do with a little laughter. Come to the library, checkout the display of Periodic Table of Laughter. Inspired by the Periodic Table of Elements, this table includes many “elements” of laughter. Like the original table, there are subcategories including D.C. Comics, Marvel Comics, Hanna Barbera cartoons, current comics, comic/ cartoon animals, The Adventure of Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends, Cartoon families, Graphic Novels, Peanuts, and Looney Tunes. In this table, Krazy Kat represents Hydrogen, this is one of the earliest comic strips printed in an American newspaper. Some of my favorite “elements” include the Peanuts elements, but I also like Mutts from the current comics, and Scooby Doo and his gang of friends from Hanna Barbera subcategory. Come check out the display at the library, and see if your favorites were chosen as an “element.” Relive some childhood memories, by reading some comics, watch a movie inspired by cartoons, or read something new in a graphic novel. Check out the display at the library and visit Hoopla for more comics and graphic novels. Susanna: Library Staff
