You’re reminding me of the jumble sale euphoria (& the devastation of seeing some other hand getting to the comics before you) personally I couldn’t understand anyone wanting to throw them out - i hoarded 😂

More big publishers should take a chance with kids comics and properly get behind it with marketing and sales. They tend to get forgotten and languish in the shadows. They should be celebrated with glee and relish!!

My son is exactly the same he will listen to books but gets v put off by too many words on a page . Comics and graphic novels give him a way in.

My friend got them every week but I didn't so she would pass them on - I remember her giving me a whole box of past issues and it was THE BEST THING EVER! Totally binged!

Such a shame : ( I'm so glad my son who is quite a reluctant reader has access to so many great graphic novels for exactly this reason

Beano definitely - I spent at least a year reading nothing but comics when i was about 7 and 8. Teacher told my mum I 'should' be reading books. My mum said 'Leave her alone she's reading' I gained so much from reading comics and most importantly they kept me reading.

Most people are very nice when you explain - and if they're not you probably don't want to be engaging with them

Thanks Rashmi -I do find it hard and like you say you can't help looking around at everyone. But I think you do have to be clear to yourself & others what it is you can do.
