"The Incredibles: Family Matters"
Written by Mark Waid
Illustrated by Marcio Takara
(Boom! Studios, 2009)

This is the only comicbook series which I currently buy off the stands for my kid, and it's pretty good. Adapted from the Pixar film, this series picks up where the movie left off, with the Parr family out in the open as a crime-stopping supergroup, albeit with a few endearing quirks. The stories move along smoothly, there isn't any particularly troubling content, and the artwork is nice and cartoony, matching the look and feel of the animated original. This is a digest-form collection of a story that originally came out in single-issue format (which is how we read it); the digest size sacrifices some of the impact of the artwork, but it comes all under one cover, and you don't have to trek down to a specialty shop to purchase a copy. Personally, I'm psyched that I'm able to take my kid to a real, live comic shop to buy a real, live monthly title -- I just wish there were a few more series out there that were age-appropriate for younger readers!
