Day 24 of the A to Z Challenge. Today's offering:
X is for X-Men Misfits by Dave Roman, Raina Telgemeier and Anzu
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
COVER RATING: On a scale of 1-9
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!
