Friday Jan 30
FNM Double-Header Booster Draft & Fat Stack!!
Celebrate the season with a new FNM format immediately following our Booster Draft every week in January! This week will be Fate Reforged/Khans of Tarkir Booster Draft at 6:00pm (2 Fate/1 Khans), followed by Fat Stack at 10:00pm!
Fat Stack – Each player will donate at least 30 cards plus basic lands from his draft pool (keep your best cards) to create two stacks of cards that are used as communal libraries. The first stack features cards that can’t produce mana, and the second stack features only lands and other cards that can produce mana (such as Dark Ritual, Birds of Paradise, or Fellwar Stone).
Whenever each player draws a card, he or she may do so from either stack. (All players know which stack is which.) This includes the seven cards in each player’s opening hand. Choosing which stack of cards you’ll draw from each turn is a fun challenge: Do you want to draw ways to produce mana that will help you play the cards in your hand, or do you want to draw cards that allow you to use the mana you can already produce? Players share both stacks of cards as a library and also use a communal graveyard. The format will be a multiplayer Free-for-All. Prizes include FNM promo cards both new & old!
Time: 6:00pm and 10:00pm
Entry Fee: Booster Draft $15, Fat Stack FREE with Draft entry (or purchase a draft set and donate at least 30 cards)

Graphic Novels for Kids

September 10th, 2009

FROM “THE PARENT PAPER”

Graphic novels for kids

BY PAT VASILIK

A generation or two ago, comics were the reading of choice for a huge number of kids. You bought them, traded them, saved them and read and re-read them. The one thing you didn’t do was borrow them from the library. After all, said the grown-ups of the time, comics are not “real” reading. Well, that has certainly changed in the last decade or so. Now it would be hard to find a library without a selection of what are now called “graphic novels.” And big bookstores have dozens of bookshelves devoted to these and the very popular manga, imported mainly from Japan.

While many of the popular manga series are aimed more at young adults, there are a number that are great for kids. Some are connected with animated television shows or card games, like Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh. These stories are filled with adventure and fantasy quests. While they do contain some violence, the good guys are clearly good and fight only the obvious villains. There are some other great manga series for kids to read that are a little lesser known – except of course among Japanese Anime fans! One is Hikaru No Go by Takeshi Obata. A young boy finds a game board possessed by the ghost of an ancient Go master. When the Go master is linked to Hikaru’s consciousness, the two make an unstoppable team. Another is Yotsuba by Kiyohiko Azuma. This series follows a green-haired, adopted girl on her everyday adventures, discovering the world around her. For slightly older children, Cardcaptor Sakura by the well-regarded Clamp and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind by the master Hayao Miyazaki are both wonderful examples of manga at its best.

But the graphic format offers much more than manga for young readers. Even very young children have a selection to choose from. In a funny book called Meanwhile, author-illustrator Jules Feiffer introduces readers to Raymond. Raymond, engrossed in his comic book, ignores his mother when she calls for him. As his mother becomes more insistent, Raymond notices that his comic uses the word “meanwhile” to change scenes, and decides to try it himself. Soon Raymond finds himself transported to a pirate ship. When he is forced to walk the plank, his scene-changing device comes in handy yet again, and so Raymond jumps from one adventure to another. This frantic and funny look at a boy, who is literally absorbed by his reading, will have kids eagerly turning the pages to see where Raymond ends up next.

Younger kids will also enjoy the antics of a funny feline in the Comic Adventures of Boots by Satoshi Kitamura. From trying to claim the best place to sleep on the wall to getting Madam Quark, a duck, to teach him how to fly, Boots never seems to run out of ways to get himself in and out of trouble. All of his escapades will be sure to bring a smile and a giggle to young readers.
For slightly older children, the sister and brother team of Jennifer and Matt Holm have created a terrific character called Babymouse. From the first volume, Babymouse, Queen of the World to the newest, Babymouse, the Musical, this heroine has been delighting a growing number of fans.

Although the pink covers may, at first, make you think that this is a book for girls only, Babymouse has the spunk, smarts and daring that make her appealing to both boys and girls. Drawn as a mouse, kids recognize that Babymouse is really every kid, as she struggles with fitting in at school, figuring out how to cope at camp and in her latest adventure, handling the starring role in the school play.

While kids are waiting for the next Babymouse adventure, they can try Scott Morse’s very funny Magic Pickle. Created (by accident, of course) by Dr. Jekyll Formaldehyde, our superhero has been brought out of his decades’ long sleep to fight the Brotherhood of Evil Produce and protect mankind from the likes of the Phantom Carrot and the fiery Chili Chili Bang Bang. The tongue-in-cheek humor is broad enough for kids and the stories and the art are packed with both adventure and silly puns. This
