All ages comics and manga list index 2008

The All Ages comics and manga category grew quite a bit in 2008, as publishers returned to attracting young readers instead of trying to maintain a status quo of existing comic fans.  Of course, that means that more books have come out, but publishers haven’t done very much to inform people of their titles.  That’s where my weekly lists come in.  I’ve tried to identify the comics and manga that come out every week and pull out the titles appropriate for readers 12 and under. 

This isn’t as easy of a task as it sounds.  Many publishers don’t include an age rating for their books unless its for a mature audience. Marvel and DC are pretty good about it.  DC has all of their kid-friendly books in a line call Johnny DC, and Marvel has a clear cut rating system differentiating between youth and tween before going into the teen and up.  The Previews catalog has really helped too, with their "kid-friendly" logo on new and existing books.

Over the past year, starting in April, I have built up quite a list of titles.  To make it easier to find these titles, here is a list of all the picks, as well as links to original posts.  Just a warning.  This will be kind of long, but I hope it will be a good resource.
