SO GOOD!! Such an addicting story, I just had to know what was going to happen to them. I loooove not only the art style, but all of the characters and just the general dialogue! I believe that this is actually the first 'comic book' I've ever read, and I'm glad of that because it just makes me want to read more. LOVED IT.

So my friend and I have been interested in reading comic books for a while, but we didn't really know where to start since most series have a huge amount of backstory and reimaginings and just COMPLICATIONS. Finally, I posed the question to some friends online and got the response that we should start with Runaways and Young Avengers.

Now if Young Avengers is as good as the first book of Runaways was, I can see a bright future for comic books in my life! I loved the dialogue, the characters, the

I gave this graphic novel a chance despite my dislike for superhero type stories and am glad I did. I like the aspect of the story that these teens had no idea about their parents being possibly super villains. I also like that they are coming into their own powers and feel the need to fight against the evil of their parents. But are their parents truly evil? I guess I will find out as I continue reading this series.

This is a fun series, the art is very well done and the story is easy to follow with a lot of laugh out loud moments. The characters are somewhat stero typed but you can't help but enjoy them nevertheless. The plot concept is also very interesting and causes the reader to want more

This started out a little slow, but once these kids discovered that their parents were the evil counterparts to superheroes, things picked up. It got even better when they began discovering their own unique gifts and uncovering the mystery of who they are. Too short!

I felt like the book was a little average starting out however things quickly got much more interesting with the kids discovering their parents secret. I like the art style a lot and the story seems to be pretty interesting, i'm excited to see where the story goes.

Okay, I picked these up at the library, and I think they are just hard cover copies of the comics? So that it took me six books to read what was probably just 1 TP? Oh, well, I'll take it. Great storyline, lots of fun, will have to check out more.

This book was good. I found that the author didn't know much about how teenagers actually act (because there is a very wide range!) and he stuck a lot of the stereotypical things in there. Overall, it was very good and intriguing!

My opinion of this comic in one sentence: Terrific plot, amazing dialogue, fantastic art, and you're crazy if you don't love it.
