•  The Runaways can't go home, but Los Angeles' First Protector and Most Venerable Hero has taken them in! Have they FINALLY met a powerful adult they can trust?  
•  To fight by his side, they'll have to leave one of their own behind!

    Even though there's a feeling that things in this arc will (inevitably) go to the wayside, this issue is such a genuine delight through and through. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Nov 14, 2019

    Although my heart broke for Gert, the one member of the team who had her cool power/piece of tech taken away from her and lacks fighting skills, I think this will be a huge learning moment for her. I have no clue where Rowell will go with her character, but she has talked about how she has big things in store for Gert. First was her updated look and I believe the next will be her ability to provide support for the team outside of getting killed or feeding Old Lace. Runaways #27 is one of the best issues in months! It's flooded with humor, action, pain and all sorts of joy that is sure to please most readers. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Nov 13, 2019

    The Runaways' transformation into the J-Team falls into the background as this moving issue focuses empathically on the exclusion of Gert. The opening is brightly humorous and the visuals are a fine flashback to Kris Anka's past Runaways work. But Gert's frustration is infectious -- exactly as intended! -- and it casts a long shadow over the shiny happy heroics. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Nov 29, 2019

    Runaways continues to be Marvels best slice of life/teen drama series and with good reason. Rainbow Rowell really gets inside the heads of these characters and tells amazing, (although a bit slow) stories with each of them. This particular issue had fun moments, but otherwise had very little going on aside from Gerts continuing struggle to fit in amongst her gifted friends. It was solid, but not the greatest thing in the world. Read Full Review

    A fun and entertaining story continues to roll right along. It's getting a little suspicious how well it's rolling right along. Read Full Review

    Runaways #27 was another interesting issue, and it seems like that foreboding feeling has only gotten worse with time. Read Full Review
