    For those of you who havent read Runaways, the next issue offers a prime jumping on spot, as it is kicking off a new story-arc. Runaways really has it all, action, character, and incredible plots, proving in the end, that sometimes its really not that bad getting addicted. At least, assuming Marvel doesnt release any crystal-meth variant covers in the near future. Thats just no good for anyone. Read Full Review

    Adrian Alphona continues to deliver some fine work on this series, and there's a couple big impact moments in this issue that the art really knocks out of the park, with the one page shot of Ultron's destruction being the visual highlight of the issue. There is also a nice little moment where Karolina sends up her attention grabbing call for help, and the scene where we discover the shocking secret that a member of Excelsior was hiding was extremely well served by the art. I love how we don't get to see any faces, but the big idea of the transformation scene is very easy to follow. The art also effectively plays up the colder edge of the Runaways. The issue ending shot of the city is a perfect visual match for this final conversation. I also love the way Adrian Alphona continues to add the little background details that jump out when one takes a moment to study the panels, such as the busted monitor in the garbage, or the panels with a passed out Molly on the back of Old Lace.
