Young Justice (Vol. 1)

Looking for more stories about teen heroes though that lean a bit more light-hearted than some of the other series on this list? Well, look no further than Young Justice. It’s a team, and series, that Courtney actually meets during Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., so it’s a pretty easy jump over in tone between those two books and really, it’s just a fun read.

Originally following Robin, Superboy, and Impulse, the line-up quickly expands to include Wonder Girl, Arrowette, and Secret as the adventures of the team expand to the point that the Justice League needs to get involved pretty early on. Personally, it’s still a series that I’m making my way through, but it’s a fun, humorous one that is very different from many other books that DC publishes, including every other entry on this list except for Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. The series simply feels like teenagers acting like teenagers, zits and all, which could be annoying, but is mostly endearing.

If you’re a fan of the animated series with the same name, this series is decidedly more light-hearted and less serious than that, which is not a bad thing. Whereas the animated series is focused on the hardships of growing up, this series is about embracing your youth while you still can and it does so very well.
