Comic Book Requests

  • Readers should call ahead (202-707-5690) if at all possible and allow 48 hours for retrieval from the Comic Book Collection. Many titles are available on color fiche. These should be used instead of originals whenever possible.
  • You will need to complete the comic book request form and include the titles and Vault numbers you want. These can usually be found in the Online Catalog.
  • You might also want to search the Online Catalog for reprints in the general collections. Publishers sometimes publish a completed series in book form. There are also anthologies, both in the general collections and in the Newspaper and Current Periodical Reading Room reference collection, that may be helpful to your research.
