The kids are back in town, and LA will never be the same. The remains of Karolina's alien race has come to Earth to get revenge for the millions who died on their homeworld. And they're pointing their fingers at Karolina and Xavin.
Part of me wants to like this series. I've been a fan since day one. I love the characters. But the story isn't one that interests me in the least and the art is so poorly constructed that it makes me not want to bother. The situation with Karolina, particularly as it develops later in this issue, also strikes me as really awkward and untrue. It seems like Terry Moore moved the character's thought process about five steps ahead of what seems logical given the situation. Not a good sign considering my fondness for this cast is the only thing keeping me around. My only hope is that the Runaways I remember slowly reappears long after the aliens get the hell off of Earth. Read Full Review
Humberto Ramos art is driving me insane. While I will admit when I first opened the first pages of this issue I was impressed, a closer look immediately made me groan. The colouring is great, with the alien invaders looking great as they power up against the Runaways, as does theyre powering up against their new threat, but they still look ridiculous. The characters eyes are the size of dinner plates, stuck inside giant faces which make the characters look like bobble heads. The scenes of the cast eating pizza look particularly bad, with Nico opening a gaping mouth to a dripping slice while her eyes have seem to magically shrunk down to below average size. The only scenes which actually dont look over the top and much to cartoonish are with Karolina interacting one on one with Nico and Xavin. Ramos manages a subtlety which works well, while the rest feels like a bad joke. Read Full Review
