My comic book guy, Stu, turned me toward Larry Gonick’s series of books. A CARTOON HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES is the first book that came into the classroom. You should check out the link and the other books in the series: chemistry, computers, the environment, genetics, physics, world history, modern history, sex, and statistics are all books in the series. They deserve a look.

Marvel is continuing with its Marvel Illustrated line. This week is MOBY DICK, which is meant for teens. As always, the Marvel Adventures line puts out great books for kids. TEEN TITAN: YEAR 1, on the other hand, is a DC line meant for teens. I have great hopes for this title.

Here is the list of titles that came into the classroom this week:

  1. A Cartoon History of the United States
  2. Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America
  3. Marvel Adventures: Hulk #2-7
  4. Marvel Adventures: Iron Man #1-2, 4-7, 9
  5. Marvel Illustrated: Moby Dick #1
  6. Teen Titans: Year 1 #2
