    Adrian Alphona turns in a pretty solid effort, as this is an action heavy issue, and the art does a lovely job when it comes to the big impact shots, from Chase's big arrival scene to the equally impressive scene where Darkhawk knocks the Leapfrog out of the sky, and the craft is sent crashing to the ground. There's also a nice little sequence where Nico uses her magic to disable Turbo, and how can one not love the visual gag where Molly manages to step all over Karoline's budding friendship? There's also a cute little sequence where the Runaways slip away while their opponents are busy dealing with some internal conflict, as I loved the panel where Molly opening questions what their opponents are doing. There's also a number of interesting little details as Ricochet manages to disable Old Lace, and I also loved the decidedly cheesy quality of the space opera that the battle intrudes upon, though you can never have enough characters sporting those tiny little hats.
