    I had a stack of books I had dropped dating to almost a year ago.I decided,heck,why not hand them out instead of having them take up space.Plus,who knows I could have easily converted some new readers in the process.Some of these books included Ultimate Six,ASM,FF,Wonder Woman,The Spirit and first series JSA,not the current one.

    The reactions were priceless though:

    -some kids looked at the books as if they had never seen a book before
    -some kids would ask which hero was in the book
    -"cool! thanks!"
    -"is this a drawing book?"

    -and the best reaction of the night came from a group of kids who looked around 11-15,the mom asked "wow,what's JSA?" and without hesitation they all responded "justice society of america"and then started naming the characters on the cover one by one...my faith in humanity is restored,I'm glad that the "japanese machine" hasn't seduced all of the world's youth

    anyone else hand out comics?

    From what I see and hear in the news, handing out comics to minors is never a good idea. :(

    Too often do teachers or librarians give comics to kids only to have it come back and bite them in the ass in court. Comics have boobies sometimes, you know. And boobies can hurt people under 18.

    Yeah, if you stick to mainstream comics, you should be fine. They'll just have tons of gruesome violence, but that's not as important as protecting kids from seeing boobies.

    Still not the comics' fault, in that case. Their mothers would've been scarring them since birth.

    Apparently, it is the comics' fault. The library across from my old elementary school has stopped carrying any and all superhero comics because of the boobies.

    I blame the county sheriff, myself. A few years back, he got busted editting "questionable" scenes out of movies in secret before the mutliplexes could show them.
