Rex Libris

Just as a tide of ignorance swells up and threatens to engulf the world, out of the ashes of the Great Library of Alexandria arises a hero, an educated fellow with fists of steel and a mind as sharp as a tack: public librarian Rex Libris. Follow the story of Rex, the tough-as-nails Head Librarian at Middleton Public Library, and his unending struggle against the forces of darkness. Wearing his distinctive, super-thick bottle glasses and armed with an arsenal of powerful weapons, he strikes fear into recalcitrant borrowers, and can take on virtually any foe — from loitering zombies to alien warlords who refuse to pay their late fees....Rex is 2000 years old and his boss is Thoth, the Egyptian god of writing.
Rex Libris is a black-and-white comic book, published quarterly. The first 32-page issue will be in stores in August 2005. It is available for pre-order now through Diamond Comics and other distributors. SLG-Slave Labor Graphics.
