Hey, aren't comic books for kids! Not really anymore, but there are some great comics for kids from age 3 upward. Tiny Titans, G-Man, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and more!
The comic book industry wouldn't exist without kids reading comics and becoming future comic readers. The move from comics for kids to comics for adults in the 1980s and 1990s lead to the audience of comics readers dwindling. Luckily, many of the comic book publishers have realized this and have started making comics specifically for kids.
The Eisner award winning comic book from DC Comics, Tiny Titans, is perfect for kids aged 3 to 8 and even for adults too. It's Ron's nieces favorite comics and a great way to get kids introduced to the world of DC Comics.
From the Marvel side of things is X-Babies, which is new comic book featuring mini versions of the X-Men. Of course this is Ron's favorite, but is also a great way to get kids introduced to Marvel's popular mutants, the X-Men.
Independent publisher Boom Studios has a dedicated Kids line of comic books featuring many licensed characters from Disney, such as the Pixar family of characters, like the Incredibles, Cars, Toy Story, as well as classic Disney characters like Mickey Mouse and Uncle Scrooge. They also have been publishing comics featuring the Muppets, including the Muppet Show Comic Book.
Chris Giarusso is known for his work on Mini-Marvels for Marvel Comics, but more recently he's been publishing his creator-owned title G-Man from Image Comics, which is great for kids with some beautiful art.
Marvel Comics recent release, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, written by Eric Shanower and drawn by Skottie Young is a beautiful adaptation of the classic book and a must have for kids of all ages.
One of Josh's favorite picks, and one he hopes to share with his son is Douglas Fredricks and the House of They, from Image Comics. By comic vet Joe Kelly, this is a bit more of a picture book but with some amazing art and a story with a great lesson for kids.
