RunawaysBrian Vaughan

I heard this graphic novel mentioned as NPR commentator David Lipsky’s guilty pleasure. It is full of funny and snappy dialogue (Vaughan wrote for a few seasons of Lost), interesting plot devices and some great illustration. However, Lipsky hits the “guilty” bit of guilty pleasure right on: the covers are designed for 12 year old girls. Ah well, read them anyway – maybe with a book-cover from another series wrapped over them.
