All of our kids have that one book or book series that they have read to the point that the binding falls apart, and when it does, we go straight to the store and buy a new copy, starting the cycle all over again. The Tiny Titans comic series by Art Baltazar and Franco is one such loved book series.
The Teen Titans have been in the DC universe for a long time, and in 2009, Baltazar and Franco took the same Titan characters and converted them to elementary school versions of themselves. They went from teen to tiny, and the results are hilarious! The dialogue is quirky and witty. The plot lines are so engaging and relatable for kids, dealing with things that even non-superhero kids have to deal with like bullies on the playground, homework, and evil super villains that get a job as the school principle. Wait, what?
My husband collects comics and has for a long time. He has a lot of comics that about super heroes but are written for more mature, adult audiences. The problem with these is that my kids see Batman or Superman on the cover and think that these books are for them. Even some of the comics featured for younger audiences can be a little touch and go with the range of graphic content. The Tiny Titans is such a good choice for kids like mine who really want their own comics but might not be ready for comics with lots of action and more violence.
Do you have a comic book series or graphic novel that you or your kids love? Let me know!
