From the Editor

You might have noticed that we took a bit of a Greek mythology turn last week. We are going to continue in that vein, at least in part, this week. We have observed Greek myth transform reluctant male readers into avid page-turners and connection-makers (all those text-to connections that we teachers are so fond of).

That’s not all that is out there, of course. There are so many genres of interest that are important to the diverse population that is the schoolroom. I love many of them; it’s just that I’m particularly fond of how Greek mythology connects to children, especially boys.

Now to the list of comics that came into the classroom this week:
  1. Binky the Space Cat
  2. The Dark Tower: Fall of Gilead #1 (of 6)
  3. G.I. Joe: Cobra #3
  4. Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers #1 (of 4)
  5. Marvel Adventures Spider-Man #51
  6. Marvel Adventures Superheroes #11
  7. The Prince of Heroes Chapter II #1 - #2
  8. Storming Paradise #5
  9. Super Friends #15
  10. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz #6 (of 6)
