First up, I reviewed Philippe Coudray's Benjamin Bear in Bright Ideas on Good Comics For Kids (There's a badly-scanned images of one of my, like, ten favorite strips in the book at the top of this post).
Also at GC4K this week, I participated in the roundtable discussion of Faith Erin Hicks' Friends With Boys.
Those are two really great comic books. I'd recommend Benjamin Bear (both this volume and the previous one), to anyone on the planet, whether they can read words yet or not. I'd recommend Friends With Boys to just about anyone—it's a really winning coming-of-age story about a girl with some big problems, featuring some really great art from a really great (and getting greater!) comics artist.
Finally, I wrote a bit about Saga #12, a comic you might have already read something about this week, at Robot 6 today.
