The 'Kid''s secret identity is Liam, my son. He really wanted to do this and eventually his younger brother Ethan wanted to join it. Basically they talk and I write.
They pick the books they want to read from the store each week and we read the books together, discuss them afterwards and then he does his reviews. The choice of what books to review will be theirs, not mine.
I'm letting a 9 and 6 year old boy go loose in the comic store every week in the hopes they/we can provide readers with a different perspective on some of today's comic books. Maybe you don't have kids but think it's interesting to find out what a grade-schooler thinks about them? Maybe you do have kids and this column can provide you with some insight on what to seek out on your next trip to the comic shop?
They love feedback so feel free to leave a comment on the blog or email us about what you think.
Liam is a 9 year old son to a geek father. Liam and his younger brother Ethan have been subjected to geek culture since shortly after they were born. He's been brought up with a healthy dose of Star Wars, Spider-Man and The Simpsons among other things.
Liam now feels like it's time to share his opinions on comic books with the world.
Liam loves animals (especially kittens), drawing, GI Joe and Star Wars.
Ethan loves animals, playing with his action figures and lego Batman.
They're both in their first season of little league
And they both love getting feedback on the site.
