This year, as we honor Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, it feels more somber and more important as there has been a rise in hate crimes against the Asian and Pacific Islander communities, which has spurred the #stopAsianHate movement.

Grief and Loss in Comics | Roundtable

Sincerely, Harriet

At the end of a difficult year, the Good Comics for Kids team discusses graphic novels that can spark conversations around grief and loss.

Summer Reading Picks

Memorial Day has passed. The summer solstice is here. You’ve broken out the grill. The sweltering weather has started (at least here in NYC), and visions of beaches, pools, and vacation are dancing in our heads. Depending on where in the country you live, the kids are either finished school or wrapping it up and […]

A “What to Read While You’re Waiting for Faith and Rainbow’s Book to Come Out” Reading List

Last Thursday, First Second sent out a press release announcing that Rainbow Rowell (Eleanor and Park, Landline) and Faith Erin Hicks (Friends With Boys, Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong) are teaming up to create a graphic novel together. But, because they are both currently working on other projects, it’ll be quite some time before said […]

Good Comics for Kids 2010 Summer Reading List

But at this time of year, educators are not only concerned about budget cuts and potential layoffs, they’re also worried about the “summer […]

Snowed In

If you walked around NYC today, you’d actually start to believe that spring is around the corner. Except for the mounds of snow still piled high along the curbs and the snow they’re predicting for Wednesday.  The East Coast has been slammed with quite a bit of snow.  Washington D.C. and the areas surrounding it […]

Great Graphic Novels for Teens

The 2010 Great Graphic Novels for Teens (GGNT) list was posted in middle of January.  After spending 2 years on the committee – I know how much effort and work goes into reading, discussing, and selecting the titles.  Even so, it’s still a lot of fun to dissect the “best of” lists when they’re posted.  […]

March is Women’s History Month

It’s hard to believe it’s already March. With February being on the short side, March seems sneaks up on you somehow.  (Though with the N’Easter that’s hit us on the East Coast, I’m not sure how you could miss it.)  Aside from signaling the end of winter, and the beginning of spring (I can’t wait!), […]

Honest Abe Turns 200

Last week, I was reading the NBM blog and noticed a post highlighting Rick Geary’s title about the murder of Abraham Lincoln. There’s been a lot of talk about the 16th president turning 200 so in honor of his birthday (which, I know, was last Thursday) and today, President’s day, the Good Comics team decided […]
