I think the premise of the Medikidz series is a great idea. While the graphic novel format is appealing to tweens, I think the actual content that is meant to be conveyed is getting lost in the shuffle. Although I really like the Glossary at the back as well as the resources for more information & further reading. Definitely a fun book with entertaining characters but an epic fail on educating.

The Medikidz series is aimed at younger readers. It uses a team of body superheros to take kids on a ride around the human body to explain how different illnesses are caused and can be treated. The superheroes themselves can be a little annoying, but the medical information seems to be pretty spot-on. I was pleasantly surprised with the Autism issue- a lot of books aimed at kids can be very negative towards those on the Autism spectrum, but this is very respectful.

Is there a reason the writing needs to be bad?

good intro for kids, but the art is only fanzine quality and sometimes a bit creepy.
