Summer's the time for comics — Marvel and DC blockbusters are in movie theaters, fans are preparing to descend on San Diego for its epic annual Comic-Con, and if nothing else, your friendly local comic store or library is there to provide an air-conditioned Fortress of Solitude where you can escape the steamy streets. So it's a perfect time for our super summer reader poll — a few months ago, we asked you to tell us all about your favorite comics and graphic novels. This isn't meant as a comprehensive list of the "best" or "most important" or "most influential" comics, of course. So poke around to find old favorites — and discover some new ones.

Editorial Cartoons The Society’s collection of editorial cartoons was started in 1946 with an important donation of works by Pulitzer-prize-winning artist Daniel F. Fitzpatrick. The collection continues to grow, with over 8,000 works from Bill Mauldin, Tom Engelhardt, and many others.

Teaching Graphic Novels Female Comics The first feminist superhero arrived way back in 1940 when Wonder Woman left her all-female island to join future super friends Batman and Superman to complete DC Comics' holy trinity. The Amazonian princess will soon be flying her invisible plane into another glass ceiling as she lands the first female-led film of the current superhero blockbuster boom. (Yes, we forgot about "Elektra" and "Catwoman" in the early-2000s. Haven't you?) But while sexism remains a villain to be defeated on the big screen, that's no longer the case on the comic book pages that birthed all this in the first place. Superhero diversity has been increasing by leaps, bounds and Nazi-punches over the past few years. Back in 2010, Marvel had no ongoing female-led comics. So we've put together a list of incredible, amazing and uncanny comic books for kids (yes, this includes boys) featuring female leads, and increasingly female artists and writers as well.
