As a dad of young boys, I was glad to see a large chunk of those were comics truly aimed at kids. Well-known names like Sesame Street, Snoopy, Smurfs, Tinkerbell and even Pippi Longstocking were represented. My superhero-obsessed sons were naturally drawn to the comics promoting upcoming Batman and Hulk cartoons (which they're maybe a couple of years away from watching). My five year old was especially interested in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which he's heard the kids talk about at school but thankfully has been alien to our DVR.
Moore's wife, Kara, volunteered to do face painting for the kids. Both of mine asked for Cap's shield on their cheeks.
After Up Up and Away, we trekked to Comic Book World in Florence for more fun and free comics. I'm already thinking about what shirts to make for next year!
