It's likely that everyone read some form of comics as a child, and for many of us it's where our passion for the medium first began. If you've got a young reader in your life who can't get enough of comic books, or you're ready to start them on that adventure, we've put together a list of some of the best titles for young readers available to buy today.
DC Comics' outreach to independent publishers for crossovers with licensed properties has already yielded some bizarre but entertaining comics, but next year's Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern might take the cake for the weirdest crossover you didn't know you wanted. DC, Boom and 20th Century Fox have unveiled further details for the project previously teased at New York Comic Con, including the news of which creators get to helm this curious title.
The Sorcerers Supreme aren't like other superhero teams. After all there can only be one Sorcerer Supreme at a time, which means the team that Stephen Strange assembles in Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme is made up of Sorcerers Supreme from different timelines. In addition to Strange and the Ancient One who taught him magic, the group also features Merlin and Billy Kaplan, aka Wiccan, the former Young Avenger whose future as a Sorcerer Supreme was established in the X-Men crossover Battle of the Atom in 2013.
The preview doesn't reveal much about the team, or how Strange goes about recruiting them. However, it does feature a pretty great Lovecraftian monster and a psychedelic two-page spread that clearly depicts a dimension outside of spacetime as we know it.

The alien symbiote Venom has become a sort of prosthesis for Flash, a wounded veteran who lost his legs in combat, but regained mobility by wearing the symbiote suit as a costume. A story from writer Robbie Thompson and artist Ariel Olivetti will show Flash Thompson taking off the suit and learning to walk with prosthetic legs in order to reassert his independence, and the story has been developed by Marvel in consultation with the service member support organization Wounded Warrior Project.
