    This was an outstanding tie-in story, being one of the best tie-in stories that I've ever read. It had plenty of drama, and suspense, as well as superb action, and tremendous dialogue. It also had great character interaction, and wonderful development, being a tremendously fun, and entertaining read. Due to all this I'd highly recommend this to anyone, but would obviously also recommend the actual Civil War story itself to go with it, as although it's not essential, it is an amazing story, and would give better understanding to the background of this one.

    If you go into Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways (or NAMBLA, for all the Daily Show fans) expecting the same level of quality found in Brian K. Vaughan and Allan Heinbergs respective series, youll be disappointed. But with the set-up out of the way, Wells now has the opportunity to explore the compelling similarities and differences between the two teams. Its just too bad their first team-up comes in such a downtrodden time in the midst of Civil War and immediately following the death of Gert. It may not seem fair to blame the book for what it isnt rather than what it is, but fans of both books will likely find issue #1 lacking the charm or excitement they might expect. Considering the subject matter and recent events in Runaways, Wells isnt at fault for the overwhelming sense of negativity; Im just not convinced that Civil War is a good setting for this crossover or for these teams.
