So I was delighted when Sesame Street #1 appeared at New England Comics yesterday. I bought two copies with the same cover, one for each girl so there would be no fighting. Indeed, that was a good idea, as when I gave the girls the comics, Muffin immediately tried to claim Squeaker's for herself until I showed her they were identical.
Kudos to the folks who put together the comic, by the way, as the first page has Elmo explaining to readers the iconography of a comic book. For example, he tells them about the word balloons and the narrative captions, and what they mean.
Finally, I will admit that along with each comic book, I provided a plastic bag and board. Because you're never too young to be taught to treat your treasured reading material with care.
