THERE'S ACTUALLY NOT A LOT TO REC WITH YOUNG AVENGERS, BECAUSE THERE'S NOT MUCH ABOUT THEM IN GENERAL. THE FIRST SERIES WAS 12 ISSUES LONG, WITH A YOUNG AVENGERS SPECIAL FEATURING &JESSICA JONES; INTERVIEWING EACH CHARACTER AND GETTING THEIR ORIGINS. THEN CAME YOUNG AVENGERS PRESENTS, A SIX-ISSUE LIMITED SERIES FOCUSING ON EACH CHARACTER. THERE'S ALSO THE YA/RUNAWAYS CROSSOVERS, ONE FOR CIVIL WAR AND A CURRENT ONE FOR SECRET INVASION, WHICH ARE GOOD BUT NOT REALLY ESSENTIAL READING. THE CHARACTERS ALSO APPEAR IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THE MAIN CIVIL WAR AND SECRET INVASION STORYLINES, BUT UNLESS YOU'RE PLANNING ON READING ALL OF CW/SI THERE'S NOT MUCH POINT GETTING EACH COMIC THEY APPEAR IN, AS IT WON'T MAKE MUCH SENSE.

THE STORY IS BASICALLY THIS: AN IRON LAD (WHO IS NOT REALLY IRON LAD) GATHERS A TEAM OF "SECOND GENERATION" AVENGER KIDS; A WEE CAPTAIN AMERICA, A SCARLET WITCH-BOY, A HULK-KID, AND ALONG THE WAY PICKS UP A GIANT-GIRL AND AN ALL-NATURAL ARROW-SHOOTING ASSKICKER. AFTER IRON LAD IS REVEALED FOR WHO HE IS THE REST OF THE TEAM STICK TOGETHER, AGAINST THE WISHES OF THE GROWN-UP AVENGERS, AND HAVE WACKY ADVENTURES.

THAT'S A REALLY SHITTY WAY OF EXPLAINING IT, INO, BUT THE BASIC PLOT IS KIND OF GENERIC COMICS FARE. IT'S THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR INTERACTIONS THAT KEEP PEOPLE AMUSED. IT GET BONUS POINT FOR A POSITIVE GAY COUPLE, WICCAN AND HULKLING, WHO ARE MOAST ADORABLE.

YOUNG AVENGERS IS AWESOME, AND IT'S ONLY 12 ISSUES (PLUS A SPECIAL ISSUE) TO BOOT! A SIX ISSUE MINISERIES JUST ENDED (YOUNG AVENGERS PRESENTS), BUT IT'S NOT DONE BY THE ORIGINAL CREATIVE TEAM AND EACH ISSUES VARIES IN WRITING/ART QUALITY.

KICK-ASS WOMEN RECS
