Greetings to you family. I'm looking to order some comics and chapter books for my six year old son. He reads at about a third, maybe fourth, grade level and is devouring anything he can get his eyes on. I did a few searches and came up with at least one book that looks promising (the thread was talking about how Harry Potter fans would dig it; we haven't read HP but we do love magic/sorcery etc. and such) but I'd love some comic recs too. If there's a thread for comics for kids that I'm missing I'd be happy to be pointed in the right direction. I really appreciate any suggestions. Hmm, I hear fighting children, must run! Sorry to post and bolt!

Oh! Real quick, older than third or fourth grade is fine as well. Thanks so much!

Wow, what a fun age for a son, my oldest son is 22 next month, but my youngest is 13. My youngest was into Sonic at that age 6. You can find Sonic books in the Manga section. He stayed with Sonic until around 5th grade. He even got a bunch of the plush toys and would make movies on our sell phones. Mom wouldn't let him post them on utube... but he wanted to.  We also got the Wii games and anything else that had Sonic on it. The toys are still in the house, but they are only used to collect dust.

I would suggest Tiny Titans from DC Comics. It's fun, silly stuff for kids, staring all the Teen Titans they might remember from the cartoon a while back. Or, um right now. They've brought them back in shorts on Cartoon Network. Very funny stuff, even for adults.

For kids who are a bit older, there is Princless, which is about a black princess who is tired of the same old damsel in distress life that she and her sisters have to live. I think it's a bit dark, but if your kid is at least 10, I think they can handle it. I've read 2 issues, and it's phenomenal. An Eisner nominee!

Also for kids who are a bit older is the Young Justice Book, based on the cartoon on Cartoon Network.

Oh, manga! Naruto is an easy recommendation. I don't know what's on the shelf now, but shounen (young boys) is made for all ages. A manga I can recommend for young boys AND girls is Yotsuba. (yenpress.com/yotsuba/#V1 I) just started reading it, and I'm already at 7 volumes. It's a few years old, so maybe you'll find it at the library, like I did.

if you're looking for independent comics that feature heroes of color that are also kid friendly, check out my series, Dread & Alive!

http://www.dreadandalive.com

There are six issues available as well as an assortment of cool posters to hang on the wall.

There's also a chapter book, which will be available next friday (2nd print run).

Take care, my friend! 

Check out my Mama's Boyz: The Big Picture

http://mamasboyz.com/products/index.html 

It's based on my syndicated comic strip. I use the ol' Fat Albert method of using humor to teach life lessons. I get great response from kids AND parents.

Also, will have a chapter book called Khalil's Way in about 2 weeks and another next month "Who Would Have Thunk It" and another the following month "The Offenders."

Hit me up if you have any questions:

are you looking for "adult themes"such as Harry Potter that are being marketed to/for younger children or do you want referrals to what are books for children in your child's age group? Are you looking for some life lessons that children at a young age can absorb as a foundation or do you want the stuff that currently is being marketed and targeted toward children that is NOT suitable for real young people in the ages below 10 but that this society is hell-bent on getting our children to ingest? I work with several publishers of childrens books and if you want some more appropriate books and a VARIETY of things and lessons besides "Harry Potter' and Teen Vampires, I can connect you...

Check out http://www.pragmaticmom.com/

Her site has tons of book listings and are categorized by age/grade or reading level.

When comes to comics my daughter checks out the Viz Media site. You can also go to Scholastic Books website and their site has it categorized by reading level and grade.

Check out http://www.mycomicshop.com it's favorite comic shop and they are very kid friendly.

And libraries now are carrying more manga and comics than ever. We homeschool so the library is our best friend. I hope this helps.

 

Thanks so much for all the recommendations everyone! About to check these out now...

@Admin: Yep, that's the first thing I did was search the "Kids" section here lol :-). I saw both of the direct links you have listed. That's how I found the one book I mentioned. Thanks for your input!

@Nicholas: "if you're looking for independent comics that feature heroes of color that are also kid friendly, check out my series, Dread & Alive!" Yes, that's precisely what I'm looking for! Specifically Black/African (whatever we want to call it) heroes. I guess I should have specified this but in my haste I assumed that ya'll could read my mind lol. Lovin' the looks and feel of what you have on your site. Thanks!

@Tony: Is HP adult-themed? How so? We've never seen any of the movies or read the books so I'm not sure how to gauge the content. I'm assuming it's not overtly sexual or over the top violent as young children do read the stories? Adult-themed to me would be some of the stuff I used to watch as a kid (we were huge on sci-fi/fantasy/horror movies in my house growing up) like "Halloween", "Dawn of the Dead", stuff like that (I saw Halloween at 5 or something like that :-p Loved it and was terrified by it all at the same time lol). One of the first sci-fi books I remember reading was Interstellar Pig and I loved it. I'm thinking books and comics kinda on that level but starring us. I'm having difficulty finding such items but hope to stock up at Onyxcon :-D

@Liz: Yes, we homeschool as well and practically live in the library lol. I still have issues finding what I have in mind. Everything we pick up seems to try to lock us down into the "freed slave" reality and that's some bull**** frequency I'm not even on. Even if we could find comics that are along the lines of what we want here I'd rather buy them because with a two year old as well in the house, well, they'd get trashed in seconds (not as sturdy as books). Ask me how I found out! *destroyed Popular Science mag cough, cough* Thanks so much for your recs!

We don't have cable or anything and tend to be pretty far out of the loop with whatever the new "thing" is lol. Even when we find out what folks are reading/watching we're just like "Meh..." Absolutely making our own reality. Bless and thanks again all :-)

as i'm not in league with you heavy hitters, i am in the process of working on a comic character that will hopefully appeal to pre-teens and teenagers of all ethnicities. it'll be a short while before it's launched.

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
