SETH’S PICK :: RUST VOL. 2: If the Mayans were right and the world will end next Wednesday, why not pick up a good book to read while you wait for inevitable destruction?  Rust is an entertaining sepia-toned all ages book from animator/cartoonist Royden Lepp that deals with giant robots, strange jetpacks, and the fallout of a global war.  On paper, some of those elements don’t readily make for an all ages epic, but one of Lepp’s strengths is that he doesn’t talk down to a young audience.  If you never read Volume 1: Visitors in the Field, it’s probably wise to start there, but it’s a solid read that should grab you quickly.  I love all ages books that manage to appeal to adult readers as well as kids.  Rust is a prime example of this kind of comic at its best, and hopefully some of you out there will give this one a look.  These are also great gift ideas for young readers interested in comics beyond the super hero genre.
