Runaways -- Great for the Classroom!

Runaways, a Marvel series that is perfect for middle and high schoolers, has always been one of my favorite series. With the upcoming change in writer and artist, Marvel has released the following music video. Thanks to MTV Splash Page for the hookup!

Runaways is the story of a group of Los Angeles teenagers who find out that their parents are actually supervillians. They set out to learn just why their parents have chosen evil, and along the way discover their own powers. Brian K. Vaughn, who along with artist Adrian Alphona created this series, peppers his stories with pop culture references, never seeming to 'force' his young protagonists' dialogue.

I highly recommend picking up the digests of Runaways for you classroom or library. Not only are they cheap, but any 'objectionable' content is removed without butchering the story.

Enjoy!
