Admirers of Illustrated Literature

Admirers of Illustrated Literature is a student organization that introduces various forms of illustrated literature, such as anime, video games, manga and comic books. Its goal is to increase the appreciation and awareness of these genres throughout Iona College's community. We strive to form a friendly and hospitable atmosphere to talk about new releases within the illustrated literature world, as well as providing an outlet for those who come to Iona College and have the same interests as the members of Admirers of Illustrated Literature.
