Let's see, when I was a kid, I didn't have to nor desired to read the "Super Friends" book or the Electric Company version of Spider-man. No, I read the real mainstream books because they were not written down nor drawn down to the level of a 6 year old. It's sad that to appeal to kids at all, they think they have to dumb the book down and they dumb it down too far. JLU actually was a decent book and kid friendly. And they dumb it down even more to the point that no kid over 7 would actually be interested in getting it. It's sad that the mainstream books are aimed at 30 year olds with big budgets instead of using the adult imprints to aim for that market and not their Flashes, Captain Marvels, etc.
If they want to aim the books towards young kids, maybe they should actually read some of the kids and youth books. They are far more sophisticated these days in both storytelling AND art than what these appear to be.
