Kids’ comics get some respect

It’s about time someone came up with a blog for three-year-olds, right? Francoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman broke new ground with a line of graphic novels for “emerging readers,” as they call them, and now they are doing it agai. Benny and Penny and Their Friends features the adorable brother-and-sister mice duo created by Geoffrey Hayes (who won a Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for Benny and Penny in The Big No-No). So far there is a comics panel to print out and color and a word balloon to fill in, and new content is promised at least twice a week.

Meanwhile, Reading With Pictures is coming into the final stretch with its Kickstarter campaign. Headed by Josh Elder, the creator of Mail Order Ninja, RWP is a nonprofit that plans to research the best uses of comics in the classroom, but lest you think they are a bunch of stuffy educators, their Kickstarter project is an anthology with a cover by Jill Thompson and work by Chris Giarrusso (G-Man), Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man), Ryan Dunlavey (Action Philosophers), Jimmy Gownley (Amelia Rules) and Eric Wight (Frankie Pickle), among others.
