Libraries in pop culture: Rex Libris

Rex Libris is a science fiction graphic novel series created by James Turner, and tells the story of Rex Libris, Head Librarian at the Middleton Public Library. In addition to managing the public library, Rex is engaged in an unending battle against the forces of evil and their failure to return library books, which reaches through time and space. He also has a set of administrator’s teleportation crystals, which really helps with those business trips. Rex is a member of the Ordo Bibliotheca, a secret society of librarians that controls civilisation. Rex is also responsible for revealing the secrets behind the missing sections of the Dewey Decimal Classification System.

While there has been talk of a film adaptation, it appears to be ‘in development’, which means it still may or may not happen. We’ll be keeping our eyes out for this one.
