Runaways, Vol. 1: Pride and Joy - Adrian Alphona, Brian K. Vaughan This was a lot of fun when I wasn't totally distracted by the fact that the cover was peeling right off my brand new book, making all the pages pretty loose (FYI: don't get the paperback if you think you might want to read this more than once).I loved getting to know each of the kids, and I loved each of their unique and complicated relationships with their parents. Most of this volume was set-up--I feel like they're only true runaways at the end of this volume, realizing that there's no easy way to stop their supervillain parents and finally having left home for good--but it was good enough set-up that I'm really excited to see what comes next.
