New Kid-Friendly Comics, 9/30/09


Since new comics are released every Wednesday here in the States, I thought I'd organize a list of the kid-friendly comics available this week.  Sorry about the dearth of previews this week.  I'm hoping that Comic Book Resources will post some more tomorrow.

Also, please check out my Amazon store to pick up this week's collected editions for your classroom. The prices are often discounted more than 30 percent!

I cannot recommend X-Men: Magneto Testament enough.  I hope to blog a review about it soon.  It's the story of the X-Men nemesis Magneto's time in a Nazi concentration camp during his childhood.  It's a great character study -- one that takes a serious look at what might drive a victim to become a villain.  If you teach Holocaust literature, it's a must-have.  On to the new releases:
