What are some of the best all ages comics that came out this week? Well, compared to most weeks it’s a little skinny. However, there are some jamming comic book mini-series, as well as some cool picture/reading books that’ll engage kids in the first through third grades. Where is your closest comic book store? Just type in your zip code into the Comic Book Store Locator and get your comic book grove on.
Adventure Time/Regular Show mini-series
The monthly Regular Show comic book ended and immediately thereafter they announced that this mini-series. Adventure Time Regular Show #1 is what happens when a new villain wants to take over Adventure Time’s Ooo. Jake and Finn go on a quest to see what the problem is and discover Skips from The Regular Show. The comic book version of both of these television shows is tamer than its broadcast brother. For ages 8 and up this is one of the best all ages comics that you’ll find this week. If your child is into either show, simply point them this direction and they’ll be immersed in the comic book for hours.
Disney Manga Tangled
Disney. Manga. Tangled. Books or stories that are told in a manga style are able to break through to readers. This is inspired by the hit Disney film and tells the same story, but is done is that distinctive, beautiful manga style. Ask any middle school librarian how popular manga is and you’ll get an idea of how much your upper elementary through high school student will enjoy this.
Batman & Robin Adventures
We often mention young reader books here and these folks do a great job. Capstone puts out some of the best all color, superhero books for young readers that you’ll find. These are proper books that are reasonable priced and concentrate as much on the words as they do on the illustrations. For grades 1-7 they cover a large audience and each book will target different audiences. They’ll be around 88 pages or so, thus they’re much thicker than the best all ages comics that’ll be in stores.
Surfside Girls, The Secret of Danger Point is by Kim Dwinell and is a soft, nuanced, love letter to summer, friendships, scary houses at the end of the street, mysteries and growing up. While the two main characters are girls in a coastal town, they will resonate with anyone and its story is one that has spook factor, but just enough realism to make you second guess that empty house.
Mech Cadet Yu
Think of a younger skewing Pacific Rim as one of the best all ages comics and you’ve got an idea about Mech Cadet Yu. Giant robots coming down from the sky to defend the world from even more terrifying aliens and kids are chosen to protect and defend. It’s brought to us by Greg Pak (Totally Awesome Hulk) and Takeshi Miyazawa (Ms. Marvel). Mech Cadet Yu is a mini-series that might be too much for an 8 year old, but ages 9 and up will want to suit up immediately.
