• The Runaways have gone full J-Team with Doc Justice and are cleaning up Los Angeles better than ANYONE expected. Doc has never had J-Teamers with powers as amazing as the Runaways (I mean LOOK AT MOLLY, I mean, Blue-J) so they are going to have to set their sights even higher!
•  But where does that leave Gert? Back at the Doc's mansion, of course. But Gert isn't going to just sit like a bump on a log. With access to the J-Team's files and resources, Gert is going to do her part!

    The Doc Justice arc is continuing to be an interesting shake-up for the world of Runaways, and this issue makes that overwhelmingly clear. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 15, 2020

    Runaways #29 delivers the title's usual dose of excellent, reader-spoiling storytelling and tops it with some welcome plot progress. Doc Justice makes the leap from "seems wrong" to "definitely is wrong." The creators still have several hidden cards on that score, with this issue revealing just enough to spark excitement, dread, and endless speculation among fans. Read Full Review

    Runaways #29 is a fun story that revels in the classic superhero tropes we all know and love, but at its heart it's a narrative about not needing superpowers or a psychically-linked dinosaur to be a hero. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Feb 4, 2020

    I do love the slow burn that Rainbow Rowell is doing right now. As stated in previous reviews, the Runaways' story is one that doesnt need high action set pieces and a constantly moving plot to be engrossing and entertaining. The best part of this series so far is the character aspects of it and how were getting far more of Gert Yorkes than we did before she died. Andres Genolets art continues the signature of this series and compliments the slice-of-life style of it. Rowells writing, Genolets art and Cunniffes colors make this another great issue, even if fairly okay by its own standards. Read Full Review

    Everything still works wonderfully in this comic, but the storyline seems to be spinning its wheels for no particular reason. Read Full Review

    I want to love this book. But I dont. I want to dislike it too… but I dont. At worst, Im apathetic toward this issue after reading. Sure, the writing and the artwork are fine, bordering great, but the content itself… meh. Or at least it was for me. Thats ok, not every issue is going to blow my socks off eh? Read Full Review

    Although I didn't care for much of this issue, it certainly sets up the backstory of the J-Team as they draw closer to more appearances across the Marvel universe. Andres Genolet is still doin the Lawds work, depicting our Runaways in old J-Team gear, flexxing in their gym and spar sessions, as well as showing us a beautiful look at Gert's fears manifesting in real time. I did appreciate Rowell's subtle hint at a less-than-perfect Doc Justice. We shall see what this need for a Reality Show and his Karolina comments amount to, but it aint looking good!
