Kids Read Comics: A Popular Revival

A couple of my recent pieces have focused on children's comics here in the UK, and how they've been enjoying a bumper year thanks to some new blood and clever regenerations.

The Dandy Returns over at The Beat looks at how one of the worlds longest running comics is making the change from paper to digital format, while Kids Read Comics: A Popular Revival over at the New Statesman looks at The Phoenix comic and others on offer for children today, as part of a week long focus on British comics at the popular political and cultural magazine.

Check them out!
