The Picks:

archiecomics superspecial 1 223x300 All ages comics and manga for 11/14/12Archie Comics Super Special #1 – Find out about all the happenings in Riverdale in an all-new format! This new quarterly magazine features the greatest stories from the Archie vault, with this issue focusing on Christmas as well as a never before seen in print story, “Betty and Veronica Save Christmas (or Not!).” It also has creator spotlights and the latest Archie news. And just to get you into the holiday spirit, this issue features a new foil enhanced cover. It will look great on a library shelf or coffee table—or under the Christmas tree!

young justice v2 197x300 All ages comics and manga for 11/14/12Young Justice Volume 2 Training Day TP – DC Comics has made the popular Cartoon Network series available to younger readers. This trade collects issues #7-13 and features such stories as Artemis trying to prove herself to the team, Captain Atom teaching the team some Espionage 101 with a 40 year old case, Robin helping his mentor Batman against Ra’s al Ghul. The origin of Clayface is revealed, and Aqualad’s leadership gets tested. I had avoided putting this series on the list since I believed it was more in line with the older-rated cartoon series. But writer Greg Weisman, who also wrote such titles as Gargoyles for the Disney Afternoon in the 90s and later The Spectacular Spider-Man in 2008, knows how to craft stories for all ages. This is another title that would look great on shelves and under the tree.
