CLONE CLUB RECONVENES ON MONDAY WHAT
(Our local clone club is getting together to watch s2 finally yay)
Top: energy levels after 2 week of teaching for two hours everyday, grading, prepping, everything.
Bottom: at least I have this kicking new For Whom the Bell Tolls shirt. I love Hemingway, honestly, but I also think somewhere in the great beyond he’s looking for someone to high-five because his name is stretched out on some chick’s boobs.
I feel like I’m always a bad judge at deemingwhat’s “appropriate” for whatever age. When I was in 5th and 6th grade my favorite comics were the comics where Shaft was stabbing some dude in the eye with a pen or Savage Dragon getting bludgeoned on a church spire by Overlord or Violator tearing Spawn’s heart in an alleyway. Soooo… I dunno. The stuff I wanted to read was the stuff I was told I shouldn’t be reading, same with prose and movies.
I gave some Shutters to my friend’s 11 year-old sister after asking about the content and they were fine with it and she loved them, but if it wasn’t for them giving the okay I’d have no idea.
I KILL GIANTS by J.M. Ken Niimura and Joe Kelly is my perpetual go to for just about anyone of any age wanting to check out comics. Either that or Day Tripper by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba, but I don’t know how much 4 - 6th year olds are contemplating their mortality these days.
I haven’t read them, but those Hilda books by Luke Pearson look like something I’d enjoy at that age.
I have read Tellos by Mike Wieringo and Todd Dezago and that is definitely something I’d enjoy at that age.
I feel like The Leaning Girl by François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters would probably be appropriate, but might be a little heady.
Then there are go-tos like Bone by Jeff Smith, but I assume you’re on that already.
I think me at that age would really enjoy reading Prophet by Brandon Graham, Simon Roy, Giannis Milogiannis, Farel Dalrymple and a bunch of other people, but again there’s a dude who fucks a chicken alien in there so you may not want to go down that route. Same with AKIRA by Katsuhiro Otomo, but yeah, man, that probably has way too much violence.
Anyway, what I’m getting at here is you should definitely by I Kill Giants and Tellos and use your best judgement on the rest of what I list here. Good on you for bringing comics into the classroom!
this is a good answer I couldn’t agree more on Tellos and I Kill Giants. I kill Giants is one of my favorite works of all time.
If you can get your hands in dollar bin comics from the 70s, it can be really fun for kids to see the “old” stuff. Most of the Marvel stuff is safe, too.
By 5th-6th grade, the early arcs of Ultimate Spider-Man (Peter or Miles) would be totally fine.
Faith Erin Hicks’ The adventures of Superhero Girl
Kazu Kibuishi’s Amulet
Tintin and Asterix are classics, obviously.
Don’t forget manga!
AstroBoy, Princess Knight, Cardcaptor Sakura, One Piece, and Yotsuba&! spring to mind.
