I have a parent that is looking for recommendations for elementary-aged comic books or comic style books about superheros. Her son has is a 1st grader. Preferred topic is superheros.

I was going to recommend
Kung Pow Chicken
Toon Books

Anything else out there?

Thanks,
Darshana

The Lunch Lady books are fantastic. And, of course, who can deny the power of Captain Underpants! Tra-la-la!
