Hmmmmmm. That's a doozy. I thiiiink
-the whole Marvel Adventures series is pretty good and all-ages stuff, but I don't know if that's still going on
-apparently the new Transformers ongoing(s?) is/are also quite good.
-Groo the Wanderer
-Calvin & Hobbes
-Do web comics with print versions count? Because if so Dr. McNinja is fun for all ages.
-Jon mentioned Runaways. That's good. And age-appropriate.
It's a god damned shame that you specified comics hypothetical American parents wouldn't object to because man, that just limits the list by a lot because there's tons of stuff 13-year-olds fucking love
and parents fucking hate
like Hellboy. That was one of my earliest comics when I started actually getting into comics. I mean I'd read Tintin and Gaston Lagaffe and other eurocomics and stuff, but I wasn't really into
comics yet. I just thought they were fun, you know what I mean?
Plus I'm European so asking me what's fun for 13-year-olds and appropriate in the eyes of their American parents isn't really fair.
And I'm less than a week away from being 23 so I'm starting to get on in years and I can't fucking remember how I thought when I was 13 and besides that maybe the first comic I read when I genuinely got into comics was Watchmen.
