    When combined with consistently great art and character design, and a hearty helping of millennial anxieties, this issue is just the latest knockout for Runaways. Read Full Review

    At first I thought it was going to be a boring issue, but turns out to be an issue with great feelings that makes you excited for the future and some great humor! The art really compliments the writing and makes it easier to read. For a one-shot issue, it definitely is adding on for future storylines. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 22, 2019

    This is a quiet day for the Runaways in terms of battles fought or changes to the status quo. But the characters are, as always, evolving in fascinating ways. It's beautiful to see and compelling to read. And, like the best "slow" issues, it promises dramatic upheavals in the immediate future. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze May 23, 2019

    Runaways #21 turned out to be one of the strongest issues we have gotten out of the series so far. It was entertaining, it was engaging, though more than that it was character driven. Focusing on some of the characters who don't get the spotlight you wish they got more of. Read Full Review

    Chase gets deaded on the regular bathroom, forcing him to resort to the creepy bathroom where he happens upon that tragic ending from last issue. What he ultimately discovers is something far worse, and very well may drive a wedge between the family he just swore to protect. Genolet has added a slick new look to this comic, while Rowell keeps the Eisner Award-nominated hits coming. Read Full Review
