New Kid-Friendly Comics, 2/24/10

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.  I've included links to previews (courtesy of Comic Book Resources) where available.  As always, thanks to iFanboy for the list of new releases.

If you're interested in having students do a cultural study of comics over time, or maybe even how the pop culture of specific time periods has changed, check out the newest Batman Chronicles (Vol. 9).  This series reprints every Batman story in exact chronological order.  I've been reading and writing about the Superman version of this book over at my other blog and have found it to be fascinatingly campy.

New Kid-Friendly Comics, 2/17/10

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.  I've included links to previews (courtesy of Comic Book Resources) where available.  As always, thanks to iFanboy for the list of new releases.

I've been hearing nothing but good things about the new-ish Power Girl series.  It'd be nice to have some superhero comics in the classroom with strong female characters taking the lead.  Plus, the amazing (pun-intended) Michael Lark is the artist on this week's Amazing Spider-Man, so that issue will definitely be worth a look!

Considering we just finished a King Arthur unit, I'll definitely be picking up Muppet King Arthur #1.  Boom! Studios has been doing a fantastic job with these Muppets titles.

I know that a few of my students are excited that Crogan's March is available today.  They read Crogan's Vengeance and really enjoyed it.
