Where to find comics in Somerville?

TAGS: None

The Somerville Voice shouted us out recently in an article aboutjust how comic-friendly our city is! Check it out by clicking here!

In addition to the self-published mini-comics described in the article, the bulk of our comic collection is actually more along the lines of old-school superhero comics ranging from blood-sucking vampires, werewolves, and maniacal monkeys to the traditional batman and superman crowd.

We’ve also recently acquired some fantastic graphic novels, such as Adrian Tomine, Daniel Clows, and the World War 3 series.

Come by soon and get a special comic-themed library card, or make your own at the library!

Items for sale!


We have a few items that we or our friends have made for us to sell!

Every little bit helps us in paying our bills and telling people about the library.

If you aren’t from the area, but still want to support, check out our BigCartel page for ordering info::

A very early video about us!

This video was made in the first few months that Papercut was open in Harvard Square. We have since moved to Somerville, and expanded our collection by the thousands! It’s amazing to watch this and see how we’ve grown.

Our Zine Release Party!

Tags: ,

We had a Zine Release and Swap Party at Papercut last weekend and it was a success!

6-7 new zines from the Boston area were shown off in our space, and folks traded and read excerpts aloud all while enjoying the refreshments. We hope to make this a regular thing, so stay tuned if you are planning on releasing your own zine in the coming months.

We also had a spur of the moment Gallery opening, when an old friend of the Library stopped by to drop off some posters which were used in the 2008 Boston Zine Fair.

The full-color posters display some of our very own zine covers, and next to each poster hangs the zine from which the poster was made from.

We are calling this exhibit: “Zines As Art” — Come check it out soon and see them for yourself!

We now have a blog!

Stay tuned for many updates in the coming weeks :)

Because we have not had a blog before, we may be sharing some photos, videos, and other media that range from the time that we opened to present day! Certainly, we intend to focus on our current projects and events most of all. But some of the videos and events we’ve been digging up do not seem to fit elsewhere on our website, and they are too good not to share.

I hope you enjoy our upcoming posts, and hope to see you all soon!

We’ve moved!

The Papercut Zine Library, after months of searching, has found a new space for our zines! We are excited to join the Somerville community, with easy access to Union Square, the High School, and the Public Library (as well as public transportation!)

Visit us at 226 Pearl st.!

If you can’t make it to visit the library, but still want to support our efforts to pay rent and other expenses, you can donate here via pay-pal:
