more a fanservice crossover than anything essential. fun for fans of the two teams, though.

I'm claiming this from spacedog's Manga/Graphic Novel bookbox. Nothing wrong with a little fanservice now and then, eh? {grin}

Later: I did enjoy some of the crossover scenes, though I knew that it wasn't likely that the Runaways would team up with the Young Avengers in any permanent way. And it was a bit disturbing to see Captain America looking like a curmudgeonly middle-aged guy whose job seemed to be to refuse to let the kids do anything at all.

The bad guys were impressively nasty and scary, and there were some good action scenes, but it did feel a bit sketchy overall. There are character sheets at the end of this volume that include lots of background info, which was nice - those unfamiliar with the series should read those first. (I was pleased to see Hulkling and Wiccan here; they didn't have time for any romance, poor guys, but at least they looked happy together!)

[There's a TV Tropes page on the Young Avengers, with reference to this crossover.]
