    Rowell digs in deep with her characters for an exciting new story that really dredges up stories from the Runaways' past. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Sep 12, 2018

    Overall, Runaways #13 was full of surprises. Their lives continue to get more complicated with each passing day. Either because of the things they do, or the universe that just doesn't seem to want to give them a break. When all is said and done, this series is fun for the fact that the Runaways spring into action no matter how crazy it gets. Read Full Review

    All in all, this could very easily lead to another awesome arc for Runaways. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Oct 21, 2018

    David Lafuente's artistic style is quite a departure from Kris Anka's work, that he's been crushing. I'm not a huge fan of drawing more cartoon like characters, and his depiction of our Runaway ladies could've been finessed way more, but Lafuente does a dam good job with pretty much everything else. The truest test is drawing Karolina, and she's as bright and gorgeous as ever. The action scenes are vibrant and exciting. The baddies are decently menacing and Lafuente really goes hard on the few panels where he can flex. Maaannnn all I know is that Rainbow Rowell has blessed us with the original Runaways squad + Victor and everything is better when the gang's all back together. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Patrick Lagua Sep 17, 2018

    A mostly by the numbers action sequence that takes some character beats for granted. The issue was satisfying but nonetheless made me miss Ankas deft lines and sense of style. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 12, 2018

    The return of Alex Wilder brings lots of fascinating character conflict and tons of action. This issue also brings a new artist into the fold, and the shift in visual style is a lot less welcome than the change in storytelling tone. With all due respect to David Lafuente, his cartoonier take on the Runaways just emphasizes how truly magical Kris Anka's work has been. This series remains eminently readable, but this issue and the next one are likely to go down in history as "the Alex issues with the wonky art." Read Full Review
