Rex Libris: I, Librarian
This Slave Labor Graphics (the same people who bring you Lenore, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, and Squee) comic centers around Rex Libris. Rex is a 2,000 year old librarian who once worked in Alexandria's famed library. Now, he works in the Middleton Public Library insuring that books are returned no matter where or who you are (i.e. demon samurai, an astronaut, or an evil alien overlord.)
