written by Brian K. Vaughan; ilustrated by Fiona Staples (2012)

I picked this book up because I kept seeing it in people's GoodReads lists for graphic novels when I was deciding what graphic novels my children's and young adult lit classes would read. I loved the story line, especially because how often do you get a snarky married couple - with a newborn, no less! - as your protagonists? One has horns; the other, wings, and they are both in an intergalactic race to stay alive. I very much enjoyed it, but it should be noted that it's an adult read. There's . . . well, pretty much everything people might protest about in the book. But I'll be looking for book #2.
