New All-Ages Books from Marvel

One of the biggest criticisms of the big publishers is that they don’t produce enough product for younger readers. This might be due to those titles not selling well enough to make a profit. of course there is a school of thinking that says “if you lose money on a all-ages book that attracts some new readers to comics they will grow up and continue to buy books aimed at the older generations.” Invest now and gain later.

It looks like Marvel have at least realized they need to cater to these younger readers and are throwing some of there big talent behind the new titles. Current Amazing Spider-man writer Dan Slott will be writing ”Ultimate Spider-Man” adventures, This isn’t Dans first time writing kids comics as he got his start by writing “Ren and Stimpy” comics. Marvel are also expanding the “Earths Mightiest Heroes” universe with Chris Yost telling stories in the animated universe through the eyes of Agent Coulson.
