I can't believe I'm typing this...

...but I am actually about to recommend a Marvel comic book.

Runaways is unexpectedly awesome. This series, about a group of teenagers who discover that their respectable California parents are leading double lives as a cabal of supervillains, is funny, touching, and smart. The artwork is mediocre, and I'm told that Joss Whedon is about to take over as head writer (longtime readers know that I look at any Whedon project with suspicion, having never forgiven him for the last two seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), but I'm enjoying myself too much to care. And at a mere $7.99 per volume, they're even reasonably priced!
