A recent trip to the Dallas Zoo led to another discovery of comics being used for educational purposes. Inside the Insect House you'll find any number of creepy crawlies as well as this collection of insect inspired comic books:
Spider-Man, the Tick, Blue Beetle and even Ambush Bug are represented. I'm not entirely sure of the educational merit of the display but anything that promotes comics to kids is a good thing.
The obligatory fanboy nitpick would be the inclusion of Doctor Octopus but maybe the animal experts at the zoo can make some genetic connection between octopi and bugs. I'll leave that to the professionals.
