    Delays are bad, but Whedon's Runaways is good. We can complain all we want to about its sporadic release dates, but there's no reason for anyone to be completely unhappy with the end product, which just happens to stand as yet another great story from one of the best in the business.

    Michael Ryans expressive and colourful art fits this series so well. His pencilling duties also end with Joss Whedon, so he will be missed. As I said earlier, Ryans art has been much more consistent than Whedons scripts. His characters are very expressive without crossing the line into comedic, fitting the humour style the series possesses very well. Runaways delivers great one-liners rather than physical comedy, so his grounded style works to laugh when appropriate. His care in other scenes works as well. The falling petals of the flowers present in the fight between Molly and Klara had potential to come across as cheesy and unoriginal, but Ryan gave the panel a subtlety that keeps the scene genuine. His action sequences work well also, with his beautiful two-page spread of the gang war being very colourful and jammed packed with almost every character in the story so far. Ryans pencils are perfect for this title and his consistency is a relief. Read Full Review

    Even without the huge delay, this would still be dreadful by any standard. Bring on Terry Moore please. Maybe he can save this book. Read Full Review
