Incisive Commentary on Culture of the Day

"Don't they have anything for kids here?"
said by an 8 year old, during a visit to Midtown Comics, the Manhattan-based comic books store.

I found the answer was no. Speaking as an avid comics fan, the comics industry has slouched from something that used to capture the imagination of eight-year-olds towards material for the guy living in his mother's basement. Even the front page of features, as of this writing, and image that looks like someone splattered with blood. I say this is for faux-grownups.
