40) Avatar: The Last Airbender. The Son and I watched the series last year, and now I want to read the comics, which follow the characters on adventures beyond the timeline of the show. The volumes are huge and beautiful and expensive, so I'll probably go through them at a rate of one Christmas present for The Son per year. I've read one so far.
41) Runaways. I somehow missed this comic series before this year, which is weird because it was created by Brian K. Vaughan, author of Saga and Paper Girls. The first I heard of it was when the latest volume, written by Rainbow Rowell, hit the shelves. I wanted to read it because duh, Rainbow Rowell, and wound up reading all the back issues to catch up. It's about a group of teens (plus one pre-teen) living in the MCU who discover their parents are super-villains. I've read 2 big omnibus bind-ups and 7 comics volumes so far. The next volume comes out in Oct.
42) The Backstagers. Cute comic about 5 boys in stage crew at their all-boy high school and their adventures uncovering the secrets of the alternate dimension back stage. Queer-positive and a little manic. Basically, it's a male version of Lumberjanes. I've read 2 volumes and am waiting for the 3rd to be released next spring.
