    Bast praise the return of Kris Anka! There's just something about the way he draws life into our team of misfits and reluctant heroes. That shadowy closing panel alone says so dam much! Matt Wilson has been the epitome of Anka's match made in heaven, because the vibrance of his coloring bodes so well for the art. I love myself a good origin story, and when done properly I like the expansion of said origin even more. Rainbow Rowell did that for the Runaways leader. She keeps finding new, inventive ways to keep this comic fresh and exciting. I don't know where they're going with this updated Staff Of One backstory, but I can't wait to find out. The possibilities are endless! Issue #16 drops next week, so check back in to see where we're heading. From the looks of the cover, it should be a Christmas spectacle! Read Full Review

    The end result that Rowell crafts goes to some really heartfelt and intriguing places, all of which is elevated by the return of Anka's wonderful art. Read Full Review

    An issue full of exposition about a nifty new retcon. The issue is entertaining enough, but still little more than an info-dump. Read Full Review
