New page of Your Name Here posting on: Levi Levi – Comics by LeEMS
If you have clicked around on the site lately, you may have noticed some changes, especially where the comics are concerned. In an attempt to raise the profile of the comics, I have given them their own mini-sites within the LeEMSmachine.
This means, for you RSS feed reader readers, that the RSS feed you are currently subscribed to for the Bean will not show the comics. I’ll post alerts here when there is a comic posting, and especially when a new comic story line is debuting…which will happen soon. In the meantime, explore and have fun!
Hey, so I’ve noticed that comic postings can sometimes get buried and not be obvious. I’m working on a new way to run my comics on my site, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy these slices of library life:

I realized that only the people with RSS feeds see the new comic postings. So here is a little head’s up. A new page of No Evil just posted: we can’t stay here too long – The LeEMS Bean
He’s thinking about it right now…
I was at a comic shop for Valentines day because that is what nerds do, and I found The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. The cover was fun, so I picked it up. The back promised cameos from the Marvel Universe of characters that I was familiar with. I was in a buying mood. I bought. And. I. Was. Not. Disappointed.
First, sometimes I have a love hate with comics because so many of them require you to have and have read the 89 to 500 issues that come before. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl didn’t require such fore-study from me. It launched into a world where everyone was making up their own stories and so it didn’t matter that, as I found while reading, I was not actually starting at the beginning of the squirrel girl story.
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is smart, and in a world of superheroes, Squirrel Girl seems like a super girl who became super on her own. You know, like us regular Joes and Joanns dream of. Sure Squirrel Girl can talk to squirrel’s, but all her super rocking fighting comes from practice (again, just read volume 2, so if I am totally incorrect here I apologize). To top it all off, she has a friend and supporter who says totally librarian friendly stuff about the internet. And she says it with a ginormous monster in the background. Any comic who calls out the internet for being 85% misinformation and a bunch of mom tricks that don’t work is a forever favorite of mine.
On my last indie comics mining trip in Etsy I bought: Smells Like Library v. 2 Funny Library Comics from the tommykovac Etsy store. Afterwards, I carried around the awesome bookmark it came with to remind me to talk about this a little more.
If you didn’t know, librarians are a diverse and often creative group who love creative stuff about libraries (and cats, but besides the point). Tommy Kovac makes and writes wonderful creative stuff about libraries.
Besides comics you can buy through his Etsy store and comics you can read on his site, he also has a blog that Smells Like Library. Go and breathe in.
