The School Library Journal announced today their list of more than two dozen “Comics That Celebrate America’s Cultural Diversity.”
Divided into categories for pre-teens and teens, it’s a nice list of some of the deeper books (both superhero and otherwise) that are hitting the shelves.
Some of my favorites on the list include Incognegro, a really smart OGN from Vertigo chronicling an African American reporter who “passes” for white to investigate hate crimes in the 1930s South, to mainstream Big Two books like Blue Beetle and Young Avengers, as well as some books I hadn’t read yet, such as Zuda’s Bayou and AdHouse’s Johnny Hiro.
You can check the entire list here, whether you’re filling your kids’ shelves or your own.
