• It's the end of the road for the Runaways!
•  Betrayals! Reunions! Maybe some making out! Definitely a death or two.
•  This one's got it all! (Except cowboys. That was last issue.)

    This is one of the better spin-off titles of Secret Wars and will make an excellent read as a trade in the future. Sanford Greene's artwork is perfectly suited to a youthful title like this, and his work culminates in some striking panels in Runaways #4 (particularly the culmination of Bucky and Valeria's tales). It would be easy to make a title like this "too fun" or carry over the drama of the main Secret Wars title in a way that doesn't fit a "Breakfast Club meets Die Hard" teen-oriented tale. Stevenson may be known for somewhat lighter books like Lumberjanes, but Runaways #4 is a solid close to a great series that demonstrates that she could easily handle more action-oriented titles in the future.

    Put simply, Runaways is great comics storytelling, favoring depth over complexity and humanity over cliche. It's a deeply-felt tragicomic fantasy with great honesty and humanity at its heart"a great story not just for young people, but about young people. Read Full Review

    In one sense, this series doesn't really justify the "Runaways" moniker, as it only features one major character from past incarnations of the team. But in terms of spotlighting a quirky group of teen heroes making their stand against authority, this book is worthy of the Runaways moniker. Read Full Review

    Despite some predictable beats and too many plot points crammed into one issue, "Runaways" #4 is still an engrossing, fun read. Based on what they've been able to accomplish in four issues, Stevenson and Greene should be given the chance to work together again, preferably on an ongoing team comic. Read Full Review
