Comic Book Club?

I made my superhero at Marvel!
I am toying with the idea of starting a comic book club for fifth and sixth graders this year. Kids who like to read them, create them or talk about them will be welcome to become members. I am using this post to catalog my web resources and to encourage my readers to give me ideas! 
Here is my "ideal book club":
I would open the club to no more than 15 kids, we would have 2 different clubs a year so double the kids could join. Kids would create a super hero, we'd talk about the journey of a hero and we would put some of our hero powers into action in the community. I'd like to have some experts come in and teach us what they know. I'd love to go on a trip to the local comic book store. I'd love to use some online resources to publish our own comic books and may be even sell them to help support our club. 
Here are the sites I've used for inspiration- please share your favorites with me.

  1. You might be interested in taking a look at the Comic Book Classroom program. I heard about it last week from a Denver Post article. I sent in an interview request to hopefully talk to them for TransformED.
