Links: The Return of Miles Morales
Marvel is bringing Miles Morales back as Spider-Man in the main continuity of the series; previously, Morales wore the Spidey-suit in the alternate universe of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man. Brian Bendis, who created the original Miles, is back as the writer of this series.
At the Barnes & Noble blog, I rounded up some Attack on Titan read-alikes, all of which are teen-friendly (though Deadman Wonderland skews older than the rest).
Mariko Tamaki and Irene Koh discuss their comic Casey & April, which is set in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe.
At The Mary Sue, Jordan West posts some advice for kids who are getting into comics for the first time, on how to find comics and what to try:
The important thing to remember is that most comics are written for adults. That doesn’t mean you can’t read them or that you’re not “mature” enough; it just means that those books will make more sense and be more interesting to people who are a little older. If you’re not sure whether something is supposed to be for grown-ups, try asking someone at the bookstore or getting one of your parents to read it first. Sometimes, putting a comic aside until you’re ready to read it can make you like it that much more.
