For you new readers, an explanation: Every week I list the comics that came into the classroom. These titles are added to my queue of books that need to be reviewed. The list includes titles from mainstream and independent publishers. Of course, you are welcome to send suggestions of comics or graphic novels that you would like to see reviewed. I will try to acquire the titles if possible. You can access previous weeks by clicking on the label “In The Classroom This Week" located on the sidebar.

I have been anticipating TINY TITANS for some time. I am glad to see DC appeal to very young readers with this tiny superhero title. For the middle school and high school teachers, the manga-style Shakespeare book are written in original language and may prove a good way to get students into the classics.

I have recently added the MARVEL ADVENTURES: IRON MAN series to my collection. It seemed a smart move considering the live action movie adaptation is scheduled for release this May.

Here is the list of books that came into the classroom this week:
  1. The Batman Strikes #42
  2. Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st Century #11
  3. Marvel Adventures: Iron Man #8
  4. Shakespeare’s Hamlet: The Manga Edition
  5. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: The Manga Edition
  6. Shakespeare’s Macbeth: The Manga Edition
  7. Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet: The Manga Edition
  8. Tiny Titans
