Just another WordPress.com weblog

AWW YEAH

Being old is a lot of work. Jobs, bills, responsibilities, they get you down. So sometimes we want to escape. Nothing works quite as well as watching Black Adam do some very unsavory things to people with whom he has a strong difference of opinion.

Being young is a lot of work too. Playing, school, homework, chores, they get you down. So sometimes we want to escape. But watching Dr. Light be nefarious may not work for your brains. Fortunately as dark and angry as some comics get, not all publishers have forgotten one of the shortest groups of readers in comics.

More and more publishers are creating books designed with readers of all ages in mind. Boom and DC seem to be putting the most effort behind this, but Marvel isn’t too far behind. I’ll try to keep you as informed and up to date on which books are out and what’s in them as possible, but life happens. I can’t read everything, and it’s not easy to pick up many indie  books for me.

So, I’m going to do as much as I can to spread the word about these All ages books. I pick up just about everything that comes from Johnny DC. Jann Jones has done a fantastic job re-marketing DC’s kids line to reach an undeserved market. I’m starting to pick up most of the Boom! Kids titles. They’re doing a fantastic job with the Disney licenses they own. Marvel Adventures doesn’t have a huge quantity of titles, but the few they have are quality a majority of the time. I need you to help me out to whatever I miss. Be it an indie title that skipped my radar, or even an issue of a book that isn’t aimed at a younger audience, but would hit it.

Just because this blog is going to focus on “all ages” brands doesn’t mean other books won’t shop up here. While I doubt we’ll ever see a vertigo book show up, I will bring up things like Spider-Man love Mary Jane or the DC Raven special as it fits.

The beginning ride may be rough here, but stick with me a bit. It’ll get better.
