A kid, a killer, and a paranormal investigation team: some good comics

Franklin Richards

So I spent so much time talking about what I didn’t like about Marvel and DC recently, I figured I would talk about some things that were still good.  The image above is from a title I like, called Franklin Richards, Son of a Genius.  It isn’t published regularly, and it seems very much influenced by Calvin and Hobbes– or at least that is what it reminds me of.  I don’t know why I like it so much, it’s silly, it’s funny, but it works.  It almost begins to feel like it would work much better as a comic strip, or as a one-page supplement each month at the end of a Marvel comic (like the good old Rufferto one pages on the back cover of one of my favorite books from back in the day, Groo the Wanderer).  Anyway, I don’t read many “funny” comics, but this is one of the few that is worth doing so, if you are even marginally into Marvel comics.
