Good Manga for Kids

Fun fact: I used to be a regular contributor at the School Library Journal’s Good Comics for Kids blog. From 2008 to 2011, I reviewed a variety of comics and manga for younger readers, from Eric Shanower’s adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Marvel) to Matthew Loux’s charming Salt Water Taffy (Oni Press). The following index is intended to help parents, teachers, and librarians find reviews and discussion of kid- and teen-friendly manga, as well as reviews and discussion of Western comics for the under 16 crowd.
