Let’s talk the best all ages comics that are new this week. This week is packed with many great comics for young readers to choose from. Moreover, there are some fabulous examples of graphic novels that elementary aged kids will laugh out loud to, plus a historical graphic novel for those history kids in middle or high school. Here are five of the best all ages comics or graphic novels that you find in stores this week.
Crafty Cat and the Crafty Camp Crisis
This is a fun, very silly graphic novel about a girl in second grade who is very crafty. She solves problems by being crafty and happy. The text in Crafty Cat and the Crafty Camp Crisis is fine for second grades to easily read on their own. It’s also great as a read-along book for even younger kids. They’ll laugh at the illustrations, identify other cats as Crafty Cat and be lulled into the love of reading before the first 30 pages.
Spongebob Comics Volume 3, Tales From Haunted Pineapple
Spongebob Comics is one of the best all ages comics that you can get each month. This is the third volume of previously printed stories that are collected in a graphic novel format. Bang for the entertainment buck, this is one of the best deals this week. If you want to jump in on the shallow end of things, Spongebob Comics #71 comes out this week too and retails for 3.99.
Justice League Power Rangers #5 (of 6)
When this mini-series started earlier this year I immediately pegged it as one of the top all age graphic novels of 2017. Then issue #5 kept getting delayed and I forgot about the series. Now, after a slight delay, Justice League Power Rangers is back and ready to finish things out. It manages to blend the two worlds together in such a way that devotees of each will say that they got the upper hand. More impressively, it manages to make those that don’t like the other team cheer for them-and want to see more of them.
The Art of Pokemon Adventures
In those hundreds of cards that your child has is art. A rectangular canvas where kids will hope for an EX, really want a GX, use their imagination and try to catch them all. The Art of Pokemon Adventures is a collection of full-color art from the Pokemon Adventures graphic novel series. This includes sketches, story boards, four pull-out posters and a brand new story. This is 168 pages of Pokemon art that retails for just under $25.
A Castle In England
A Castle In England is an original graphic novel that’s the work of five British comic book artists. It blends real history, with fiction to tell stories about a castle through the ages. The Scotney Castle in Kent is the background for them and the non-fiction elements might just be enough to motivate your young reader to read something real.
