Comics Creator Calls for Better Kids Comics

Lockjaw and the Pet AvengersRecently posted over at iFanboy, accomplished writer/artist Chris Eliopolous (Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius, Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers) makes a plea to the comics industry to produce better content (including digital) for kids.  He's right, you know.  Check it out by clicking on the link below.

"The Kids Are All Right" by Chris Eliopoulos

Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (currently my favorite novel of all time, by the way), made a similar plea at Comic Con International in 2004.  You can read that speech here, and it has also been collected in his book of essays entitled Maps and Legends
