On The Shelf: @AspenComics Will Include Age Ratings Beginning With July’s Release Of Lola

Posted by
Aspen Comics has announced they will be including an Age Rating on all direct edition 
covers published for the retail market beginning this July with Siya Oum’s Lola XOXO 
(Volume 2) #1 and for all future titles. 
Aspen President Frank Mastromauro elaborates: 
“We’ve listened to plenty of retailer feedback on the topic and took their insight to heart 
in our decision to initiate a new age rating on all of our future titles, and believe this will 
be able to further help our retailer partners determine the best way to stock and sell our 
books. With so many different genres in our library, we also felt this is the best way for 
new readers to make an informed decision on whether the book is a right fit for them or 
their children, as cultivating new readership is key to the future of our industry.” 
The publisher will begin the new age rating system of “All Ages,” “Teen” and “Teen 
Plus with July 12th’s Lola XOXO (Volume 2) #1 and continue with all new Aspen 
Comics titles.
