Soulstream 634

Soulstream (from Scout Comics)
Recommended by Travis Lakata

Soulstream is a magnificent all-ages comic book that is completely accessible to kids. This is a fun story that emphasizes the difficulties associated with big decisions, and how easy or hard it is to try and be oneself in the face of real-life events, or when you’re trying to use your super powers for good and save the world.

Soulstream is created by Saida Woolf, and she fully captures the youthful spirit associated with a fantasy adventure that kids will want to dive into. As an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed it, so this is a story worth getting and I think your kids will be happier for it.
