Oh, I just love reading comics!
Children are attracted to pictures and images rather than reading long stories. They identify the story just by relating to the pictures.
I bring you the list of comics you can give you child to read.
- Archie Comic Archie, Jughead, Veronica, Betty and the rest of the gang of Riverdale High are sixty-four-years-old but still remain the same as they were when they were created in 1941. Archie Comic Publications, Inc. is an American comic book publisher headquartered in Pelham, New York. The company is known to have published books under the names Archie Andrews, Jugjead Jones, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Sabrina Spellman and Josie and the Pussycats. Archie comics are light-hearted.
- Toon Books If you are looking for for quality comics for early readers then Toon Books is the one. It was started in 2008 by comic couple Françoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman. Toon Books is the only comics publisher that organizes their publications by reading level. For early readers they have a number of great offerings spread across two levels: Brand-new readers (ages 3+, grades K-1) and Emerging Readers (ages 4+, grades 1-2). They also publish books for later stages like grades 2-3 and beyond. Most books come in hardcover and softcover format and are pretty readily available in bookstores, but you can browse them all on Toon-Books.com.
- Justice League A comic book based on a television show, the Justice League stars some of DC Comics greatest superheroes. Superman, The Flash, The Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Batman round out this cast of heroes that go on amazing adventures against the most powerful villains in the known universe. If your child likes action, then the Justice League is a great choice.
- Marvel Adventures Marvel Adventures is intended for younger children. The Marvel Age imprint was relaunched as Marvel Adventures, with Marvel Age: Spider-Man and Marvel Age: Fantastic Four being restarted as Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man and Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four. This time around, the stories would be original and not based on existing stories.
- Scooby Doo Scooby Doo, where are you? This is a reincarnation of the classic television series that sees Scooby and the gang solving mysteries with lots of fun and excitement. This is a great way for parents and kids to connect with characters they both know and love.
- Tiny Titans Tiny Titans was an Eisner Award-winning comic book series by Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani. It was published by DC Comics, beginning publication in February 2008. The first issue was also released as part of the annual Free Comic Book Day promotion in May 2008. The series concluded its run with the 50th issue, released March 21, 2012.
- Hilda Hilda series of graphic novels follows a young elementary-school-age girl who lives in a village called Trolberg. She’s smart and sassy, lives alone with her mom, and loves animals. That realism amidst the fantasy world she exists in is what makes this series so enjoyable for kids (boys and girls alike).
- Garfield It is about a cat Garfield, owner Jon Arbuckle, his owner; and Jon’s dog, Odie. It is published since 1978. As of 2013, it was syndicated in roughly 2,580 newspapers and journals, and held the Guiness World Record for being the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip.
I have tried to cater all sorts of comics ranging from action to comedy. I have not read all the above mentioned comics but certainly read few of them. They are like stress-relief and fun to read.
It is time to bond with your kids and hand them comics so that they are not glued to gadgets. Gadgets have totally spoiled children.
