My daughter’s love comics. Pretty much all three of them. But it turns out that by and large, 9-12 year old girls aren’t the main target audience for most comics. That in itself is okay except that it also turns out that the target audience for most comics seem to be really into things that my girls don’t like, or that I as their parent don’t think they should be exposing themselves to in excess (ie intense violence, lots of cruelty, women with improbable bodies walking around looking like their working at a strip club).
So it’s always a nice treat to find something that is truly “all ages” – that I can enjoy as a 45 year old adult, and that my daughters can also enjoy in their childhood and preteen years. I wrote about one of my favorite such books a while ago here – but another one that I discovered in the last year or so is Molly Danger by Jamal Igle, published by Action Lab Entertainment.
