    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Oct 30, 2019

    In the finely-crafted Runaways #26, the family absorbs enough information about Doc Justice and his ongoing war against the Pride to sign themselves up. The changes are so swift that they're overlooking all the red flags along the way. Thanks to the creators' hard work, those flags are glaringly obvious to us, building breathless anticipation for dramatic and possibly tragic twists coming up soon. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - waltgator Oct 30, 2019

    Not much action happened here, just a good amount of dialogue. If this book is actually planning what I think they are planning then I am so looking forward to more of what is to come. This is a book that for the longest time has gone nowhere. But if we are setting up something new and adventures for our Runaways, then this could be the saving grace that the book has been waiting for. The art is very good! Dialogue, on the other hand, is a mix. It has some great parts and others felt forced and out of the blue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Nov 1, 2019

    Andres Genolet continued to work wonders on the panels. He even manages to give Doc Justice in civilian form a suave look I'm sure people will go nuts for. Victor dons a new monicker for the time being, starts the rallying cry and we're ready for some action in the next issue! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Nov 16, 2019

    This issue is a take it or leave it. It moves forward the story to show exactly how and why the Runaways are going to become part of the new J-Team, but a next issue recap could do just the same. If youre a die hard Runaways fan, then this issue wont be any different than any other exposition dumps that have been written over their years. Its a good, solid effort, but not exactly necessary.
