Question Comic recommendations for 10/11 Years olds

Welcome

They have Calvin and Hobbs and love it. Any other recommendations? it doesn't have to be humorous just anything suitable for that age group for a boy a girl or both.

Thinking of you

The Phoenix comic. A brilliant weekly kids comic with a good mix of action and funny stories. The best strips are collected as graphic novels. There's also some best of books.

Bunny v monkey and the emperor penguin are my, eerrr my kids favourite.

Are the Far side & Dilbert comics suitable for 12 years old ?

Far Side: absolutely!
Dilbert: it's mostly office humor, and Scott Adams' political and other views have gotten increasingly rancid (and are sometimes expressed in the strip). I say skip this one.

Instead of Dilbert, I would recommend Pearls Before Swine. Bill Watterson is a fan, and I think it would appeal to 12-year-olds too.

Also, there's Bone, and the classic Donald Duck/Scrooge McDuck comics, particularly by Carl Barks and Don Rosa.

Agreed. Have moved away from Dilbert after many years as a result.

What about the good ol' Beano? It's online only now I believe.

As a dilbery lover who rarely looks at the strip these days (bought about the first 4 or 5 collections) do you have any examples of his heinous political views? Curious if I agree or not, my politics are left wing so may agree with him.

He’s become a bit right wing it appears.

Bit of info on the politics section.

And a misogynist. He also promotes all sorts of superstitions and nutjob ideas, though to be fair, some of the greatest comic authors alive literally believe in magic.
