At one time, comic books were thought to be corruptors of young minds, which led to all kinds of censorship issues in the 1950s. That hysteria abated by the late 60s and early 70s when even teachers believed that a love of reading could be fostered by encouraging kids to read comic books. My parents were certainly on board with that.
If you have a kid that you want to turn into a voracious reader (or if you’re in comic books yourself), there’s a new line of biographies from ORBIT.
The short ones (24 pages) detail the life and times of Motley Crue, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper and Metallica.
And that fifth book on the end? It’s a 300-page graphic novel.
