The comic book industry wouldn't exist without kids reading comics and becoming future comic readers. The move from comics for kids to comics for adults in the 1980s and 1990s lead to the audience of comics readers dwindling. Luckily, many of the comic book publishers have realized this and have started making comics specifically for kids.
Tiny Titans (DC Comics)
The Eisner award winning comic book from DC Comics, Tiny Titans, is perfect for kids aged 3 to 8 and even for adults too. It's Ron's nieces favorite comics and a great way to get kids introduced to the world of DC Comics.
X-Babies (Marvel Comics)
From the Marvel side of things is X-Babies, which is new comic book featuring mini versions of the X-Men. Of course this is Ron's favorite, but is also a great way to get kids introduced to Marvel's popular mutants, the X-Men.
Boom! Kids: Disney & Muppets Comics
