Runaways Vol. 1: Pride and Joy by Brian K. Vaughn

Reviewed by J.F. Sanborn

Having read the entire Y: The Last Man series, I was naturally curious as to how well Brian K. Vaughn could tackle Young Adult Graphic Novels. Runaways: Pride and Joy is a fast-moving, quasi-super-hero story that speaks to teenagers while maintaining an interest level that adults can enjoy. However, I would argue that the story moves so fast that character and plot development suffer for it. I look forward to reading more in the series in hopes that some depth and enlightenment will unfold. That being said, a story of six teenagers on a crusade against their supervillain parents is simply genius and will, by pure human nature, attract teenage readers.

Interest Level: 11-17

Reading Level: 9 and up, but definitely teen in its content.
