Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities.

We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community.

I love this series. I fell in love with one or two characters too. I went on to read a few more volumes and can't wait to read more.

I think younger readers would probably love it, especially if they like Joss Whedon shows (BUFFY, ANGEL, FIREFLY). It's a fun premise: what if the kids of a legion of super-villains decided to run away from home and become superheroes?

At the risk of coming off like an old sourpuss, though, I'll just note that if you're already a big reader of comic books/graphic novels/sequential art/whatever you want to call it, you'll probably find the dialogue a little unsophisticated and the pace a little harebrained.
