    The vast majority of Runaways #24 focuses on Nico and Karolina, in a plotline that's equal-parts action-packed, silly, and genuinely endearing. Read Full Review

    Runaways #24 is just plain old fun, and sometimes that's all you need in a comic. Read Full Review

    While I thought the girl's superhero suits were a bit lackluster, Andres Genolet and Matthew Wilson are an incredible pair to give life to Rainbow Rowell's vision, and I'm excited to see the big reveal get some action next issue. Read Full Review

    This book could be sold on its beautiful art alone, but the story within is absolutely cute and adorable as well. Peak teen drama that's actually readable. Rainbow Rowells method of storytelling in regards to the Runaways has been unorthodox, but that approach has paid off. Its little one offs like this that build character for two relatively lesser characters in the grand scheme of the Marvel Universe. I want to see more of them together and hopefully this new upcoming Doc Justice arc gives that to us. Read Full Review

    The Runaways #24 are dealing with a lot of changes and challenges in their lives, and that's not all that unusual. But at least this issue gave them a chance to work some of it out. Read Full Review

    Well this seems to be a recap issue. But done nicely. The art was very good with great scenes. But someone who has been reading all of the issues, will agree that this run feels stale now and not as good as when the title first came out in mid 2000's. Now that we have a recap issue, hopefully we get a better story. Would recommend this issue to anyone who has either not been reading the recent issues or someone who wants to jump on the book.
