The Picks:

Adventure Time 1 200x300 All ages comics and manga for 2/8/12Adventure Time #1 – Boom! Studios scores a new phenomenon. Finn the Human, a 13-year-old boy, and Jake the Dog, a 28-year-old dog with stretching powers, live together in a treehouse in the Land of Ooo. They are always on the lookout for adventure as they fight the evil Ice King and protect the bubblegum/human hybrid, Princess Bubblegum. This series is based on the wildly popular Cartoon Network TV show, but the stories feature all new adventures. Kids love the strange, random characters and landscape. At least, my kids do. This is a series both boys and girls will enjoy, and it would fit in a library from elementary on up to high school.

Batman Brave Bold 16 All ages comics and manga for 2/8/12All-new Batman: The Brave and The Bold #16 – We say goodbye (again) to a beloved all ages title from DC. Here’s a subject you wouldn’t expect to see in a Batman series: Valentine’s Day! Love is in the air, but so is a whole of sheer magical insanity, because Batgirl has a not-so-secret admirer: Bat-Mite! The biggest problem with comics that are based on animated properties is that, no matter how good the comic is, when the animated show ends, so does the comic. At least, that seems to be the way DC Comics does things. Batman: The Brave and the Bold was unlike any other Batman series currently running at DC, and one of the very few that younger readers could enjoy. Let’s hope that whatever takes its place (assuming a new series does) will be just as accessible.
