The astonishing story of the incomparable Rex Libris, Head Librarian at Middleton Public Library, and his unending struggle against the forces of ignorance and darkness. Rex travels to the farthest reaches of the galaxy in search of overdue books. Wearing his super thick bottle glasses, and armed with an arsenal of high technology weapons, he strikes fear into recalcitrant borrowers, and can take on virtually any foe from zombies to renegade literary characters. In this first collection of Librarian adventures, Rex must confront the powerful Space Warlord Vaglox and retrieve the overdue Principia Mathematica while an energy manifestation of blood thirsty Vandals attempt to burn down Middleton Library, and all within, to the ground. Rex Libris is a huge hit with librarians and readers everywhere.

Review:

"At no time does Rex Libris seem pretentious. It's smart, yes, but it is accessible all the same because its core concept of a librarian charged with retrieving overdue library books reads like a tale of high adventure. All the heady discussion is simply icing on the cake, a thoughtful reprieve before the next episode of action and adventure." --Chad Boudreau, ComicReaders.com

"These 32-page episodes are the antithesis of the decompression that has marked superhero comics the past decade or so, and each reads like a full-length story rather than a sliver of a chapter of a larger story that doesn't deserve it. This is the sort of wacky, off-the-wall sort of story that more comics should be attempting. Turner s having fun, but he s also telling a genuinely entertaining story that works terrifically as a comic book and will no doubt pick up a fan base, assuming enough people give it a chance. Grade: A" --Tom McLean, Variety's Bags and Boards

"Yes, Rex Libris is a comedy series. But it mixes the funny with the smart, the quirky with the literate to create a novel and intriguing concept." --William Gatevackes, Broken Frontier
