Hero worship: File this under "The Link That Got Away." Comic World News has a nice Q&A with Mike Kunkel about Herobear and the Kid, The Land of Sokmunster and kids' comics:

"I think it’s a shame to think anything good is not for kids. What silly notion to think that comics aren’t for kids. That’s like saying the only good movies are the ones for adults. Seems funny to think that, when most of the movies that come out and are huge hits are the ones that are for all ages. I think the big companies shouldn’t be afraid to tell good all-ages stories that are for kids. If you get the kids early on to like your products and stories and characters, then as they grow up, they will be loyal to you with your other offerings because they have a familiarity with your creations and sensibilities."
