Here's how this works: I finish reading a comic collection, and I tell you about it, and I try not to go on too long.

DC has a new line of ~150-page graphic novels for teen readers. It's called Minx and this book came out early in July. The price point's a little high for something I breezed through during a long lunch, but it was a fun, light read about a spoiled London teen who gets sent to spend the summer in the country with her grandparents and gets caught up in both culture shock and a murder mystery. Nothing here you haven't read before, but done with both a little flair and a lot of wit, and very nice artwork by Josh Howard.

The ending is about as left-field and ridiculous as that episode of The Saint with the giant ants, but it has ample fun getting there. Recommended if you can find it less than retail price.
