We had a sampling of titles from the Classics Illustrated series come in this week, this set from Jack Lake Productions. It should not be confused with the Classics Illustrated series from Papercutz. For those of you who have read comics for many moons, then you may remember this nostalgic series.

You may notice that there are a few religion-based manga comics this week. The Graphic Classroom is working on a series of articles and reviews on making religious comic literature available to students. Most public school libraries have a religion section. Our recommendations obviously include adaptations of religious texts, but also biographies and fiction rooted in religion. Most importantly public school teachers and librarians must make a good faith effort to include many different religions or religious views.

We also had some mainstream comic titles come in, mainly for teens. We are working on some more reviews for middle school and especially high school students. Here is the list for the week:

  1. Classics Illustrated: The Three Musketeers
  2. Classics Illustrated: The War of the Worlds
  3. Classics Illustrated Junior: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
  4. Classics Illustrated Junior: The Ugly Duckling
  5. Classics Illustrated Junior: The Wizard of Oz
  6. Classics Illustrated Junior: Johnny Appleseed
  7. Classics Illustrated Special Issue: The Story of America
  8. Classics Illustrated Special Issue: The War Between the States
  9. MangaBible Vol. 1: Names, Games and the Long Road Trip
  10. MangaBible Vol. 2: Walls, Bralls, and the Great Rebellion
  11. MangaBible Vol. 3: Fights, Flights and the Chosen Ones
  12. Teen Titans Year 1 #3 (of 6)
  13. Thor #3
