I posted on the imagecomics.com forum, but couldn't get a response.. and time is kinda a factor because it's about a Christmas present so I'm hoping you guys can help
i have a very intelligent(like way above her age level) 9 year old to buy a present for. I've given her comics in the past that were meant for kids and she loved them, and even kept them in the plastic bags with boards that I gave them to her in... so there's no question that she likes comics. But what brings me here is she is obsessed with cryptozoology. I think it's because of all these bigfoot and chupacabra shows on tv. She just sent me an e-mail with pink text telling me about how the chupacabra definitely exists. I know she would love a comic about cryptids. I read the first issue of proof on comixology and I didn't see anything inappropriate, but I'm wondering if it gets worse. The genre on Wikipedia is horror. I want to pick up the first trade for her. Is there anything too scary for a kid? Is there any swearing or sex at any point? If there's swearing or sex, I can't get it.. so I need your help. I'm probably gonna start reading this myself, but I won't be able to read enough on time for Christmas to know if it's ok for her.
Please help me out guys. I'm 28 so I'm decades older than most of my cousins and I don't want to become the creepy old guy.. please help me be the cool and edgy old guy!
