Cine-manga for the little little kids

Tokyopop has announced the launch of a new line of Cine-manga books aimed at ages 3 to 6. They will resemble early readers and feature an average of 2 art panels per page for easy reading. 3 books will start the new Jr. Cine-manga line with one MY LITTLE PONY title and two SESAME STREET titles.

This will definitely help young kids understand how to read comics earlier by introducing the concept of story structure as told through panels. Still not moving towards my dream of new original stories, however, the market these days is very licensing driven so it shouldn't surprise me here.
