Marvel Comics Will Publish Kids Comics In April… And Beyond

Marvel Comics Will Publish Kids Comics In April… And BeyondIt was noted that in the March 2012 solicitations for Marvel Comics, that the Marvel Adventures line of comics had come to an end. Spider-Man #24 and Super Heroes #24 will be the last issus.

These done-in-one comic books, often written by Paul Tobin, were suitable for All Ages, thereby increasing their likelihood to be chosen as a subscription gift, or for content-sensitive chains, for Disney stores, and digital sales. With a few copies in comic shops, often for parents to pick up for their children. I know my six year old daughter has a stack, and uses it to best the boys with superhero knowledge in the playground. Comics as weapons, I approve.

So I asked around, and was told that though these comics may be ending in March, Marvel will most definitely be publishing All Ages superhero books in April, and beyond.

I don't know who, how, which or what, but I do know that it's Marvel's plan to keep that category going for the foreseeable.

Can we say Marvel Kids Relaunch?
