Kids/Young Teens

Since there are so many different types of children's comic books, I've split them up into three different sections: hybrids, newsstand (print or digital) comic book favorites, and comics that would likely appeal to both kids and younger teens.

Hybrid Comics

Examples of hybrid comics are Amelia Rules, Baby Mouse, Big Nate, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Mr. Wuffles, Scaredy Squirrel, most of the Toon Book titles, and most of the Balloon Book titles.
