What happened to comics for kids?

First things first - I'm old. Over 40. That said, I'm not writing this as a grumpy "gerrof-my-lawn-kids-today-with-that-hippity-hop-music" kinda way.

[gallery] Asobi by Yasutoki Kariya “Asobi” was created by art student Yasutoki Kariya for his senior thesis exhibition.
