Raising Geeks: A Who Comics Review

Thank you to who?Comics for sponsoring this post and encouraging my child to read biographies in comic book form! Please click here to learn more about the app. And follow who? Comics on Twitter for updates!


What happens when a bookworm marries a computer geek?

Their kids don’t stand a chance.

The teen is an avid reader. The tween is wicked into geography. The kindergartner cannot stop talking about school and is genuinely bummed when it’s a no school day. Sure, they love Dr. Who more than Victorious.

They put together map puzzles for fun. They choose reading over games. And, I wouldn’t change it for the world. If we can create lifelong learners, I think our work here is done. I’ll take the rest of the geekiness right along with it.

That’s why the Who? Comics app was such a big draw for us. Reading, electronics and education all in one tidy package? Yeah, that’s right up our alley. We installed the app on the hubby’s iPad, and I couldn’t wait to share it with the tween. Who? Comics makes biographies fun for kids. Not that my girl needed them dressed up much. This kid reads biographies for fun. In the summertime.

Comics are $4.99 each or $9.99 for a themed 6-pack. Brenia chose the Artist/Entertainer pack—she was super excited to read about J.K. Rowling, Van Gogh and Beethoven. She blew through the comics in an afternoon. I’ve never seen her read so quickly. Having the biography in bite-sized nuggets helped her quickly digest the information she craved.

We actually used phonics comic books with Brenia when she was first learning to read. They’re a fun, simple way to engage kids and get information across. She loved learning about how J.K. Rowling created the Harry Potter series. Her life story is told in comic book form, and while the dialogue is contrived, it’s an interesting way for kids to learn.

She also read about Vincent Van Gogh and has the Beethoven biography on her bookshelf. She’s also asked to purchase Walt Disney. Since they share a birthday, he’s always been a favorite of hers. Brenia is can’t wait to read more, so she can earn more Who? badges. Oh, yes. There are badges you can earn for your reading activity.

It just adds to the fun for our little iPad geek.
