Graphic Novel: Runaways vol. 1: Pride & Joy

by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona (2003).

The love for Mr. Vaughan continues. I don't usually read Marvel books. I don't usually even read superhero books. But I cracked this one open on several recommendations and now I am hooked. The dialogue is fun; it reminds me of some of my favorite tv writing (think Buffy and Veronica Mars). The characters are awesome--a perfect cross-section of teenage cool and comics geeky (which still somehow loops back around to cool).

Plus, in my head, Chase is played by my tv crush du jour, Chris Lowell.
