RB Digital: 1500 FREE Graphic Novels & Comics
W.G. Rhea Public Library has added RBdigital comics to its offering. Patrons of our library now have access to hundreds of comics and graphic novels on RBdigital mobile apps and web browsers.
Patrons of all ages will find something to love in this new collection—from Disney Comics’ beloved characters and stories such as Frozen, Lion King, Star Wars, and Mickey Mouse, to Marvel Comics’ blockbusters Captain Marvel, Spiderman, The Avengers, and X-Men. RBdigital Comics also features other popular titles from top brands, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hellboy, Transformers, Ghostbusters, and My Little Pony.
Patrons can check out comics as an entire volume (30-day checkout period)—rather than having to check out each individual issue—and can instantly read checked-out comics on the RBdigital app or desktop browser.
