From Yen Press:

Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride, better known as Max, knows what it’s like to soar above the world. She and all the members of the “Flock”--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel–are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It may seem like a dream come true to some, but their lives can morph into a living nightmare at any time–like when Angel, the youngest member of the “Flock,” is kidnapped and taken back to the “School” where she and the others were genetically engineered by sinister scientists. Her friends brave a journey to blazing hot Death Valley, CA, to save Angel, but soon enough, they find themselves in yet another nightmare–this one involving fighting off the half-human, half-wolf “Erasers” in New York City. Whether in the treetops of Central Park or in the bowels of the Manhattan subway system, Max and her adopted family take the ride of their lives. Along the way, Max discovers from her old friend and father-figure Jeb–now her betrayed and greatest enemy–that her purpose is save the world–but can she?

Based on the novels by James Patterson.

The artist really drew Max, Fang, Iggy, Angel,and Gasman to how they were described in the actual novel. I have read all 4 volumes that were released in America and absolutely loved it. Especially Fang and Iggy <33

I read almost all the books and I liked them until it became a political agenda about global warming. A friend got me the first volume of this manga adaptation because she knew I liked the first few books. The art is good. It's very close to the plot of the actual books - that was really cool. It was also great to get a visual idea of what the monsters and other mutants looked like besides what I imagined.

the "big bad" being… Global Warming. What started out as a cool action series with some romance and intrigue turned into a rushed political statement.. and it had so much potential *shakes head*

I like the books, but I have to say I think that the story will be done justice by being made into a manga. I saw a preview of the first few pages, and it brought back my pictured image when I was first reading the books. It seems very promising and I know that I will try to read maximum Ride in manga form!! Edit: Just read first chapter in full and can't wait for more!

I haven't actually read the manga but there books had a good plot but were really badly written and too crammed, but I think it will work quite well as a manga but may still have the problem of being crammed.

Edited: So I bought the book its has good graphics, its wasn't what I expected for MR and well I still love it if you read the book
