Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. writer Warren Ellis was happy to learn of the title’s recognition by YALSA. “I do it all for the children,” says Ellis. In keeping with the off-beat humor of his book, Ellis added, “It is good to know that the young people of today are ready and waiting for me to form a Church.”
Brian K. Vaughan was also thrilled to hear that Digests Volumes 4-6 (Runaways VOL 2 HC) of his Runaways series were named to YALSA’s Top 10 of 2007.
“Appearing on such a prestigious list is a tremendous honor, so thanks very much to everyone at YALSA. If libraries had been cool enough to carry graphic novels when I was a kid, I never would have had to turn to petty crime to afford my expensive comics habit,” kidded Vaughan.
Major Spoilers wish to congratulate Ellis and Vaughan for the honor as well as everyone who made the list.
