These Avengers and Spider-Man Comic/Activity Magazines From the Dollar Tree Are Actually Pretty Cool

Sometimes when you buy something from the Dollar Tree you expect it to be of decent quality but not fantastic. You may get a broom that will get the job done but is by no means top-of-the-line when it comes to sweeping. You'll purchase some Ritz crackers but there is less in the container than if you bought a more expensive pack at the grocery store. With this in mind, I didn't expect two magazine-sized comic and activity books from Dollar Tree to be so fun!

As the picture at the top shows, there is an, "Avengers," one and a, "Spider-Man," one. The Avengers story is actually written by a longtime Marvel employee who has held multiple positions, Ralph Macchio (not to be confused with the actor of the same name). It focuses on Ebony Maw causing all kinds of trouble--the Guardians of the Galaxy help stop him too--while the Spider-man magazine focuses on Spidey fighting The Vulture. Each issue has activity pages with word searches, true-or-false questions about various heroes, sections to color for fun, and more! The only odd thing was how there is a random page dedicated to facts about Venom in the, "Avengers," magazine, I think it would be better to have him in the Spidey one. That said, for $1.25 and tax that these cost I was impressed as a grown-up comic reader and would say these comic/activity magazines are a superb way to get younger folks into comics or entertain someone like me who needs a good 20 minutes to accomplish even the easiest word searches. I seriously am bad at those.

5 out of 5 stars (for both).
