Wither Kids Comics?
Ever notice that comics are becoming more an more adult-themed? The article Hey Kids! No Comics! notes that lack of comics aimed at kids.
I remember being a youngster, riding my bike to the local 7-11, and spending all my hard earned cash on comic books (in 35 cent increments). Looking back, I think this is what fostered my love of reading. That and the bizarre ads they contained.
Is it me, or were comic readers back then either DC-only fans or Marvel-only fans? I was all over DC what with Superman, Batman, The Justice League, The Legion of Superheroes, etc. I never really got into the Marvel side of things. I’m sure that says something about me psychologically, I’m just not sure what.
