my daughter loves both Runaways and Gen13, and her and I have been staying up late on weekends and watching more adult movies (like Rent, and Blazzing Saddles and Moulan Rouge), so I'm thinking she could handle it.

I was just looking for other father's opinions. Thanks! :)

Now here's a question for you guys. My oldest daughter (soon to be 16), is wanting to get into the Vertigo titles. She's very mature for her age, and I'm thinking this might not be a bad one for her to read.

Thoughts? :?


16 is mature enough for Vertigo, I think. I mean I was reading and watching adult stuff when I was far younger: Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, for example.

Actually, I think 16 is around when I first read Sandman... and Preacher, come to think of it.

Blazing Saddles is an adult movie? :shock:

You read that when you were sixteen? You were sixteen in the mid-eighties? I am slightly jealous.

And my last Y trade is in the mail :D

Brian, you could pass it on to your daughter to read at sixteen, and I think she'd probably enjoy it well enough, but she wouldn't get some of the jokes that are aimed for more mature people. Shit, there are jokes in that series that I think only English majors would understand, but that's because I'm an English major and I like to think of myself as an elitist.

Sixteen is a good age for Vertigo. How about Fables?

My daughter just turned 12 two weeks ago, I plan on letting her start it next year. I will give her volume one for her birthday.

Fables. Sorry, I didn't realize that it would be unclear.

I did obsess over letting her read Runaways for god sakes.

I think it depends on the kid. I really don't want my younger daughter to read Runaways yet, but would have no problem with her reading USM. She has a bit more of rebellious nature at almost 13, and already thinks her parents are all evil. LOL!

Dead hookers in issue 1! Beyond that point though it's awesome.

Fables would be fine for 16, and I'd say Y too. Then again I read Preacher at 16 so it's not like I'm one to hide the goodies from kids. If you wanted something a bit softer than the average Vertigo book, try tracking down the My Faith in Frankie digest, or some Minx?

I had also thought about Walking Dead, but I'm not sure she would really get into that as much. And honestly, as much as I love it, sometimes the art throws me off. Some of the people start looking like each other. Or my eyes are getting worse... probably the latter.

What about Invincible? Or did someone mention that? Oh wait we're talking mature readers stuff...hmm, there might be some Sandman stories she'll like, although they tend to mix a bit of graphic violence with girlie stuff (I'm thinking A Game of You and The Doll's House).

ooh and YTLM 10 is sitting on my bed. I'm contemplating just reading it now, or finishing my re-reading of the Ultimates...this is like a major life step for me or something. :(

There were a lot of things I kind of knew would happen but I'd say I'm satisfied.
