Kids who have never finished a book on their own before can pick up a graphic novel and be done in an hour and feel empowered. … They’ve never had that experience before. They finished something.

Any self-respecting comics fan cringes at the phrase
“comics aren’t just for kids anymore.” But any self-respecting comics
fan also has to admit there are some great kids’ comics out there — especially
In fact, comics for early readers are booming; even big
publishers like DC are getting in on the action.
which dc titles do u recommend? is for example king's batman good?
well.. i have very simple taste when it comes to comic book writing, so i’m saying yes. i’d definitely recommend it especially since they introduce gotham girl, who is growing to be one of my favorite comic book characters. also it has the batboys in batburger scene so!
on other favorite dc titles to rec… bolded ones are absolute favorites
cyborg (n52) (this one is super underrated imho)
midnighter (n52) / midnighter and apollo (rebirth)
blue beetle vol. 8 (pre52) (BEST BLUE BEETLE RUN TO EVER EXIST)
catwoman (n52) (the BEST catwoman run ever imho)
teen titans (rebirth) / super sons (rebirth)
omega men (n52)
the wild storm (rebirth)
mother panic (rebirth - young animal)
bunch of batfam related titles rec to get out of the way
batman eternal (n52) / batman and robin eternal (n52)
batgirl (all volumes right up until burnside) (i actually loved babs coming back as batgirl right up until the burnside arc. the writing was way more serious, darker, and introduced one of my favorite characters- alysia yeoh)
robin: son of batman
jason todd: under the red hood arc ( pre-52 batman #635 - #641 & #645 - #650 + batman annual #25) / red hood: the lost days / red hood and the outlaws ( n52 & rebirth - n52 is bad but i do it for them (joyfire) while rebirth is seriously good ) / red hood/arsenal / arkham knight - genesis (not part of the main continuity but arkhamverse, still the best jason comic to ever grace the earth)
duke thomas: batman (n52) / we are robin / robin war (reading order) / all-star batman (rebirth)

A group of high schoolers go exploring on bikes after school lets out. They find a place that seems like any old abandoned site on the outside, but once they’re inside, they find out that they’ve managed to step through a portal that brings them to a place with loads of junk and a few broken magical items. Inside they uncover a mirror, in which a girl is trapped on the other side. The group makes it their mission to find out who trapped the girl and why. In the end, it’s an member of an inorganic alien race, and out of anger and spite, the main antagonist traps the most outspoken member behind the mirror as well. Grief-stricken, one of the friends in the group ends up taking home the mirror and keeping it in their old treehouse away from their snooping parents. This friend has feelings for the leader trapped in the mirror, and is heartbroken when they find that the leader, oblivious to their friend’s feelings towards them has taken to the girl in the mirror. Out of jealousy, the friend tosses the mirror when they witness the leader counseling the girl in the mirror, who is struck with guilt about getting someone else trapped. The mirror cracks, and the pair in the mirror find their way out. Slowly, the girl begins to open up about her past, and how she got into the situation. The group learns that she also possesses the power of Reanimation.
