    In the sixties when I started buying comics with my allowance, they cost about half to a forth of what I got for the week.  As a precentage of a kids allowance, the comics aimed at them are too expencive.  I understand profit, etc all, but realisticly,  the comics don't need to be fancy glossy paper just within their budjet.

    What is a 7 year old's allowance these days? The Marvel Adventures line needs to realize what there market is & cater to them.
    January 14, 2010 9:12 am I spoke with my son's grade school librarian last year about how to get boys to read more.  She said that even tho she didn't like the idea of graphic novels, it was the only thing the boys would read. The few she had in stock (Bone) were falling apart.  Her responce was to recongnize that reading something was better than reading nothing.  The only problem has been finding hard cover editions.

    Great Show,  Thanks for doing it.  I got a bunch of ideas for gifts. It's this shame it didn't air in Christmas buying season! 

    My 10 year old son has another nominee,  Usagi Yojimbo. Perhaps not for the 6 year old crowd but certainly appropriate for the older kiddos.
