The Library of Awesome

The Library of Congress is The Library of Awesome in every respect, but this is especially true this summer, with a special pop-up exhibit celebrating famous comic books and comic strips, artwork and drawings and related items. Free programs for all ages will be offered as well.

Visitors to this special exhibit will see highlights from the Library’s nearly 140,000 comic books dating back to the 1930’s, including first editions of Wonder Woman, Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, the Fantastic Four and the Incredible Hulk as well as rare science fiction and children’s comics.  Come in superhero character costume and receive a 15% discount in the Library of Congress Shop.
