Today I recommend: Runaways 1, Find Your Way Home by Rainbow Rowell.

When the Runaways eliminate the Pride from Los Angeles, it leaves a vacuum of power in the city’s underworld, and soon Nico, Karolina, Gert, Chase, and Molly are on the run again to uncover the truth behind their parents’ past before it catches up to them. “The “IT” book of the early 2000s with the original cast is back – Nico! Karolina! Molly! Chase! Old Lace! And, could it be? GERT?! The heart of the Runaways died years ago, but you won’t believe how she returns!

This collects the comic that was originally published in magazine format as Runaways #1-6. This is a continuation of the Runaways series by Brian Vaughan, and I think readers who have read and enjoyed those will get the most out of this comic. There is just enough of a recap of those events to make it possible to start with Find Your Way Home. The art style is wonderful- very bright and each character is so unique. It is also easy to get attached to such an interesting group of misfits- each has their own character development and issues that they’re grappling with.

You can find this comic in the Young Adult Graphic Novel section at YA GRAPHIC ROWELL.
