Can anyone recommend any trade paperbacks that are suitable for young children? Preferable Marvel or DC superheroes. The 1 on bought online (Immortal Hulk) had a 12 year old getting shot and laying in a pool of blood. Superhero on supervillian violence is A-OK, but children getting killed is something that I can't gift.

Any of the Spider-Man Epic Collection earlier volumes would be good. Basically any of the first four volumes, although personally, I would start with the first as they're in order of issues.

X-Men Epic Collection volumes 5-7. You could start with the very first volume of these, but they really aren't needed to know what's going on in the ones I've mentioned.

You could also go with the first few Avengers Epic Collection volumes.

All of these feature characters your youngster(s) are probably already aware of and are quite accessible for kids.

What's the age group you're talking about?

Ok. The X-Men books may be just a tad above 7 but he/she will totally dig on the characters and will certainly grow into the stories. I think I was 9 when I first started them.

And you’re welcome.

So Batman/catwoman 1 brings the phantom from Mask Of The Phantom back....DC is really grabbing everyone these days.

I've been trying to come up with a best of 2020 top 10 but it was a pretty average year I'm stumped. There were certainly titles I enjoyed but nothing really special. I'll just choose one.

I kinda liked three jokers. The Batman series was super weird really. That Joker War was awful.
