I recorded the pilot episode of Ray Gun Reviews: A Kids Comics Review Show...
It will probably never see the light of day, because there is a lot more work I need to put into the script to make it more professional sounding, but learned somethings and closer to have it up and running.
So, I am crowd sourcing a little for what everyone would like to see on the show...
Each episode will be between 10-15 minutes, airing every 1-2 weeks. Hopefully will be grouping comics by characters or publishers.
If you are a parent with kids looking to get into comics, what do you want to know about the comics? Or what do you think your kids would want to know about a book before picking it up? I am working on a series of questions which still reviews the books but keeps it fresh for both audiences.
Taking suggestions, hopefully, Episode 1 is ready and filmed in the next 2 weeks.

Hebruise!!!! That's awesome! I couldn't tell if a Kids Comics Review was a review of kids comics or a kids review of comics, so I apologize if I'm flooding you with questions that are of no use to your show! My little boy is about 2 now, but I'm constantly wondering how I'll introduce him to comics. I don't know if you find any of the following criteria useful when talking about kids comics: -Is an issue readable without having knowledge of the character or continuity? -Is the content good for kids? -What's the reading difficulty? -Is the book something parents would enjoy, too? -Does the issue tell a self-contained story or do kids have to have more issues to have it resolved? (Very important for storytime) Are there any comic lines that are good for kids that can't read yet? Is it a curse to learn about comic COLLECTING when you're a kid? Is a Billy Batson more relatable than a Bruce Wayne? Does it matter to kids whether kids are characters in comics? Looking forward to the show!
I am a parent of bi-racial kids in which English is their second language. So I am looking for all-ages comics that are fun for my son (5 years old), and fun and easy to help my daughter practice reading in English (8 years old).

BS3 - All good notes! And to answer one of your questions, it is actually going to be me and a 10 year old reviewing comics. Therefore, it will be reviewing more all ages books with an actual kid. Best of both!
Kross - Hopefully we tackle reading levels, it certainly came up reviewing a current Ghostbusters comic, but I will make sure to ask that with each comic!
