My youngest son recently got in to reading comics. I think it must be the art work that draws him to them because while he will sit and draw for hours there is no chance he will sit and read a book of his own accord. I'm glad one of the children has got in to comics really as I kept a box of mine just in case so I can pass them on.
At the weekend I made him this hoop framed picture of his favourite comic character, Lenore.
Animations of Lenore and information can be found on Roman Dirge's (Lenore's creator) Spookyland site
