Sears is another classification system.

Randall W. Scott at Michigan State University Libraries has developed
a schedule (which he uses in conjunction with LCSH) for sequential art
material (i.e. comic books and strips). This appeared in his _Comics
Librarianship: A Handbook_(Jefferson: McFarland, 1990). For more
information on it, e-mail him at scottr@pilot.msu.edu or check out his
homepage at http://www.lib.msu.edu/comics/index.htm .
