This article is part of the DC Database Recommended Reading project, a series of articles written by our editors. They are meant as a guide to help both new and old readers, either getting into comics for the first time or looking to read more on their favorites. These should not be taken as a definitive guide; obviously you can start wherever and with whatever you want, but they're some general suggestions that we think you might find enjoyable.

Many all-ages titles are based on popular cartoons.

It can be difficult buying comic books for younger readers. Early comics were intended mainly for children, but that audience grew up. Today, most mainstream comic books are aimed at the adults who grew up with these stories. This means they often contain adult themes or heavy violence. There are many comic books being published for children today, but you have to look for them specifically. You can't grab just anything off the rack at a comic book store and assume it will be age-appropriate. This is a listing of all-ages titles that are currently being published. These can be found in many stores, and there are also yearly subscriptions available. There are many older books that are available in bound collections. These can be found in many bookstores, and are easily available through online ordering. This is particularly useful if you are trying to start a library.
