Well most comics I pick up (and these are regular 'ole Marvel comics) are rated Teen, Teen+ and Mature, so my daughter who is turning 11 soon wouldn't be allowed to read them even if she wanted to.
As to kids/video games... don't get me started. I've got one word for you: PARENTS.
Sure, my daughter likes Nancy Drew video games and stuff like Zoo Tycoon, but she's also already read about 10 books this summer.
i said there exceptions
glad to know that your a good father
