This week’s new all ages comics continue the fun, but increase the amount of spooky tales for young readers who want to get their Halloween fix early. In Adventure Time #15 Princess Bubblegum gets tired of the ‘cute’ and takes Jake and Finn to the Goblin Kingdom to watch a thumb wresting match. This is silly fun that’s OK for ages 8 and up. Disney Descendants proved to be a success and The Rotten to the Core trilogy is back with the second book in the manga from Tokyopop. For superhero fans ages 5 and up, check out Marvel Universe Guardians of the Galaxy #22. This is the all ages comic book from Marvel, so it really is good for ages that young. Here’s a look at five new all ages comics that you’ll want to pay attention that are in stores.
Star Wars Adventures
Star Wars Adventures from IDW Publishing is a hoot. This is only #2, but based on the first one this is Star Wars fun that ages 5 and up can enjoy. It has one story that is more action based revolving around Rey and her life as a scavenger. The second story is a more humorous one about Yoda and his childhood.
