Flight Explorer is the new sub-series of the Flight comic anthologies, consisting of Flight fare that is more kid-suited. That alone doesn't automatically mean that I wouldn't enjoy it less than the normal Flight anthologies; I do enjoy plenty of fun kids books, after all. About half of these tales are continuations of serials previously started in the first four volumes of Flight, and it's nice to finally see some of those characters that haven't been around for two or three volumes. On the other hand, the fact that there are only ten stories and that none of this light fare is balanced out by the rougher edge of some of the normal Flight material had it feeling a bit limp to me. I know that it's just about perfect for kids who are interested in comics, but it's hard to read something under the Flight title that doesn't hit home as well as the normal volumes and appreciate it for all it is.
