    I have absolutely no problem with Marvel refocusing Runaways on a more youthful audience. In fact, this book is more or less what the industry needs right now, being a title that might draw a younger generation back to the medium. Whether or not Moore has the type of story to make this a reality, it's far too early to tell. However, at the very least, this first chapter proves he is capable of presenting a solid Runaways yarn, a fact from which the franchise's core group of fans can draw a considerable amount of comfort.

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Aug 31, 2008

    As for the art, if you like the cover, youll love whats inside. If youre like me and hate the cover, then it only gets worse from there. The characters are far too like a childrens cartoon. Its like Skottie Youngs art in past New X-Men issues without the cool stylization. It just strikes me the wrong way and I find it frustrating. Yes, Runaways is a fun book, packed with humour and action, but it also is not campy, which is exactly what penciller Humberto Ramos is doing. Also, some of the characters are almost unrecognizable while others, Chase and Victor particularly, look the exact same with slightly different skin and hair colour. Molly and Klara also look like bobble-heads. But it is really a qustion of preference, and I prefer someone else. Runaways has always had amazing art, from Adrian Alphona to Michael Ryan, so this is the first time I am disappointed with the pencilling for this series. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Aug 28, 2008

    This series is finally readable again and Terry Moore did a great job reestablishing the characters in LA while simultaneously setting up the new plots for future issues. Read Full Review
