"Bold, genre-defying and heartfelt, Youth hits a reader like the meteor in its own pages; an angry, wondrous and transformative book" -- Scott Snyder (Battman, Justice League)
Named one of "10 Comic Books to Celebrate Pride," by The New York Times, June 2020
Youth is Larry Clark's Kids meets Chronicle. X-Men by way of Frank Ocean. It smashes together the violence of coming of age with the violence of the superhero narrative--as well as the beauty.
Youth is a coming of age story of two queer teenagers as they run away from their lives in a bigoted small town, and attempt to make their way to California. Along the way their car breaks down and they join up with a group of fellow misfits on the road. Embarking together in a van travelling the country they party and attempt to find themselves. And then something happens . . .
Collects the original digital series YOUTH #1-#4.
