  • 10 - Jenna Anderson Jan 2, 2019

    Rowell and Anka really have a grasp on how to make this group shine, and tell a narrative with quite a lot of twists and turns (like this issue's major cliffhanger) in the process. Read Full Review

    I wish there was more that we could have gotten out of Runaways #17, but it did get us where we needed to be for this final confrontation.

    In the end of it all, everyone's true character is revealed and the team is left in another painful predicament, thanks to you-know-who. Rainbow Rowell certainly knows how to finesse the comic book cliffhanger because I find myself itching for the next Runaways issue to drop every time I finish the one in my hands. Check back in February to see how the gang makes it out of this one alive. Read Full Review
