This week in new all ages comics is jammed with variety, some cool graphic novels and a new book that has massive brand awareness that your young readers will really want to read. In the podcast and YouTube post we’ll detail two of the go-to comics that always hit the mark, one of the best new series this past year from BOOM Studios! and a monster magazine that upper middle school and older will enjoy reading. For now, let’s look at three all ages comics that will engage readers as young as 6.
Hammy and Gerbee: Mummies at the Museum
Hammy and Gerbee: Mummies at the Museum is an original graphic novel that fits an elusive niche in young readers. It’s the quest for a longer form book that early elementary school readers can relate to and even read. For grades 1-4 this is the graphic novel that will fill that void, make them laugh, teach them a little bit and get them hooked on reading. Hammy and Gerbil are a hamster and gerbil who are best friends. They have situations like school work and classmates who may (or may not) be evil that ages 6-9 will be able to relate to in their own lives easily.
Scooby Doo Where Are You?
Scooby Doo Where Are You? is a monthly title from DC Comics that is one of the go-to all ages comics that you can pick up with 100% confidence. If you go into any elementary school library this comic book will be there and for good reason. It’s funny, kids know the characters and it’s got enough action and humor to hook in a wide range of readers. In issue #89 fight a pizza monster. Bonus: Scooby Doo Where Are You? is only $2.99
Each month there are several comic book Doctor Who options to choose from. The Doctor Who comic books are OK for middle schoolers and up. The content in any of these comics are OK for them, but they might be too complex for those that aren’t familiar with the television show or appreciate science-fiction. As with most television to comic book properties, the comic book is appropriate for younger ages than the show. If you’ve tried Doctor Who as a show and didn’t approve of it, then try the comic book from Titan Comics. It’s just as good as the show, but doesn’t have the tension or scares that you might have objected to.
