    This issue is really charming, really funny, even touching, and does a great job of humanizing the larger-than-life X-Men, and a second tale gives us a really funny bit where the kids fight off monsters during a game of Truth or Dare. I haven't read Runaways regularly in a year or two, and it's nice to see that the interactions of these unique and fun characters are thriving, even under a new writer.

But the final joke of the entire story more than makes up for these forgivable constraints. I have a feeling the joke was thought of first and the rest of the story after, but you will have to read it to get what I am talking about. Read Full Review
