It's worth noting that another reason I think this series is so good for kids is because of the ethnic diversity. In this issue Goldie is revealed to be biracial, her father being African-American and her mother being white. The issue also touches on the fact that Goldie's parents are divorced. I think these are themes that are handled well in this book. It's more about visibility than it is teaching some moral lesson. This is the reality that a lot of kids have. If you're introducing children to comics or even if you're new to them this series provides high quality writing that any age can enjoy. Read Full Review

And when we see a grown up Sugar back in town it looks like she's in it for some vengeance! Read Full Review
