Libraries should not lack a comprehensive graphic novel collection, representing all readers in a healthy and respectful manner. As professionals, librarians have the skills and resources to discover new and interesting graphic novel titles. Certain standards are required to reinforce and defend our choices and best to serve our entire community. To assist librarians in critiquing and expanding their graphic novel collections, in this article the authors provide criteria for “vetting” the new female protagonist, looking for positive female role models who will appeal to all audiences and earn a secure place in public and school library graphic novel collections.
