From the Editor

Funny how first-year teaching really zaps it out of you. I haven’t had time to read comics too much since August. Writing lesson plans and sleeping have taken over, but I accept that fact and embrace it. It’s just that I miss reading my comics. I do, however, really enjoy watching the fourth graders enjoy reading so much. In fact, I’ve had a handful of new kids request to join the club in the last week. Several of them are girls, which I find wonderful.

On Monday the HALL OF HEROES comic book club at Mathews Elementary in Nixa, MO will convene. School was closed last Monday and I really missed seeing the kids. This week we are creating our own superhero personas. The question posed to kids (via my Facebook page and word-of-mouth) is this: If you were a superhero who would you be? Would you have super powers, gadgets, sidekicks? What would your costume look like? What would you do? How would you change the world? Where would you live? Who would be your enemy? (Actually, I just thought of the last question and will have to post on my Facebook page and present to the kids on Monday.)

Here are the titles that came in this week. Pay special attention to my favorite samurai rabbit, Usagi Yojimbo and the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid parody by Tales from the Crypt.
