From the Editor

I’m still in a mythology mood this week, but this time we will delve a bit into the British legend of Beowulf and a fictionalized what-if account of that story. Why? Because these kinds of action-adventure-mythology-battle stories are the stuff that boys dream of, and we want that population to become better readers, engaged readers, lifelong readers.

What about a more modern history? Kevin Hodgson gives us a review that jigsaws perfectly into the suggestions we offer for connecting mythology to today's students.

Now to the list of comics that came into the classroom this week:

  1. King Lear: A Graphic Novel
  2. G.I. Joe #5
  3. Marvel Adventures Avengers #36
  4. Outlaw: The Legend of Robin Hood
  5. The Prince of Heroes #1 - #3 (chapter 1)
  6. Robot City Adventures: City in Peril!
  7. Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen #5 (of 5)
  8. The Storm in the Barn
  9. Tiny Titans #16
  10. Tiny Titans Vol 2: Adventures in Awesomeness
