I know everyone’s probably seen this already, but…yay! From Comicbookresources:

“If libraries had been cool enough to carry graphic novels when I was a kid, I never would have had to turn to petty crime to afford my expensive comics habit.”

–Comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan, on hearing that Digests 4-6 of his Runaways series had been chosen for YALSA’s 2007 Great Graphic Novels for Teens, Comic Book Resources news, Jan. 31.

Also, from Warren Ellis on Nextwave:
Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. writer Warren Ellis was happy to learn of the title’s recognition by YALSA. “I do it all for the children,” says Ellis. In keeping with the off-beat humor of his book, Ellis added, “It is good to know that the young people of today are ready and waiting for me to form a Church.”
