Crazy About Comics? Visit Kids’ Comics Revolution!

zita the spacegirlCartoonists Dave Roman and Jerzy Drozd always seem to have something fun going on at Kids’ Comics Revolution! blog—which features podcasts, tips on creating sound balloons, and visual storytelling. Now is an especially good time to drop in for a visit. Drozd has just launched an online book club that’s devoted to Ben Hatke’s Zita the Spacegirl (First Second, 2011), the tale of a young explorer whose best friend has been abducted by a space alien. You’ll find a lesson plan, a reading by the author, and video clips contributed by devoted readers.

Teachers, librarians, and parents will also want to take advantage of the read-alike list, and the podcast can be used as a guide for kids to do their own readings and to start their own book discussions. Bookmark Kids’ Comics Revolution!, or even better, subscribe to it in iTunes or set up an RSS feed so you’ll never miss the latest fun from this dynamic and cuddly duo.
