Graphic Novel Collections

Yesterday an exlibris listserv member posted this query ....

"are there any special collections of graphic novels?  Are any of them online for bibliographical data? "

Do we at GNSIG have a list of graphic novel collections with links?

A UPenn librarian responded with ..." searchable in our OPAC as "Steven Rothman Collection of Comics, Cartoons, and Graphic Novels"; our entire comics/graphic novels special collection is searchable (imaginatively enough) as "Comics Collection."  

I followed up on the Penn library catalog in a slightly different way, with a general search for the keyword "graphic novel" as a phrase and got 227 results, not all of which are in their Rothman collection, Comics Collection, or Special Collections:

Which made me wonder if there are graphic novels that are not identified as such in cataloging. I would have expected there to be more than 227.
