X-Men: Misfits - Raina Telgemeier, Dave Roman, Anzu Summary: The X-Men get a shojo revamp as Kitty Pryde enters Xavier's Academy as the only female student. She falls in with Magneto's pets, the Hellfire Club, and dates bad boy Pyro while also finding herself attracted to the aloof Bobby (Iceman).

Verdict: If you pretend it isn't about the X-Men, it's not bad for shojo.

Nay!: Don't bother with this title! While it's a decent offering in some ways and was listed by YALSA as one of 2010's Great Graphic Novels for Teens, the second and final volume has been canceled. Readers will be left forever wondering what would have happened. Apparently not enough people bought volume one, and licensing costs are nothing to sneeze at, so the series was canned.
