Picks:

Star Wars Clone Wars TP Vol 2 Crash Course – Dark Horse continues its line of graphic novels for kids based on Lucas properties.  These adventures are original, but also compliment the TV series that is currently showing on Cartoon Network.  In this issue, Anakin Skywalker and his padawan Ahsoka Tano go undercover to find a separatist ring involved in podracing.  These GNs aren’t bad.  Each issue is a self contained story, while keeping to an overarching plot.  They are quick reads, and fairly entertaining for adults.  Star Wars fans of all ages will enjoy them.

Bart Simpson Comics #45The Simpsons has practically become an institution in people’s house and TVs.  It’s only fair that the comic should join the list.  In this issue, Bart competes with this best friend Milton for the title of class clown, Springfield now has it’s own social networking site, Bartspace, and then Maggie and Moe are on the beat trying to solve several crimes at once.  The art style of The Simpsons makes it perfect for the comic medium, and the short stories are just right for kids on the go.  And the subject matter, class clown Bart, will keep them smiling, if not giving them bad ideas.
