X for X-men Misfits

Day 24 of the A to Z Challenge. Today's offering:


X is for X-Men Misfits by Dave Roman, 

BOOK BLURB:
THE X-MEN GET A RADICAL NEW REMIX IN A STORY ABOUT TEEN ANGST, FIRST LOVE, AND WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN
High school student Kitty Pryde has always been the odd girl out. A mutant, she was born with strange superpowers, magical talents that make her the class freak. But Kitty’s world is changed when she’s invited to study at Professor Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, a special home for mutant teens. There’s just one catch: Kitty’s the only girl at the all-boy school, and she ends up just feeling like a freak all over again.
Then Kitty meets Pyro and the ultra-hot bad boys of the Hellfire Club. They’re the school’s elite–handsome, rich, and totally above the rules. Now Kitty seems to have it all: a dreamy boyfriend, super-cool friends, and the chance to develop her extraordinary talents. But why is her heart telling her that something is wrong? Will Kitty ever find the place where she belongs, or is she doomed to be a misfit forever?
COVER RATING: On a scale of 1-9

The art, the color, the technique…need I say more?
MY THOUGHTS:
I LOVE KITTY PRIDE! She had been and will always be my favorite X-woman/X-men character.
While this is more of a comic/graphic novel/mange, and not really a YA book, it is still under the umbrella of YA.
I can’t tell you how much I love this book or why, because it will take hours, but all I can say, love!
Kitty Pride was always the easiest for me to relate to, of all the x-men characters. She’s smart, kinda shy, doesn’t know who she is as a person, wants to fit in, but can’t because of her powers. Then the Xavier institute came a calling, and from there she meets the hellfire club boys. Pyro and Bobby, oh boy two different sides of the same coin and both yummy!
Now this is a far cry from the mainstream X-men comics, but it was designed that way. I think that’s another reason I liked it so much. It was a new way for seeing the beginning of Kitty’s story in a way I hadn’t seen done before.

Even if you don’t really get a “YA comic” I suggest you at least pick this one up, because the artwork is detailed, wonderful and expertly done. One thing you can always count on with X-men graphics is world blowing art work and story lines.
There you go, come back tomorrow for day 25!
Later lovelies!
