Host Derek Coward and his son Stephen talk about the first (actually second) day of the Detroit Fanfare.
I have been debating this for a long time and even though I have preached against it in the past, I have decided to get Stephen into reading comic books. He is almost five years old and I honestly think that I could have started him last year, but I can’t dwell on the past.
He is a smart kid with good comprehension skills and a very strong vocabulary for his age.
Now I just need to figure out what to start him with. Should I go with the stuff from the Johnny DC line or should I make him into another Scott Cederlund and just throw him into the deep end of the pool and pull out some of my old comics. Hmmm.
