    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Nov 8, 2017

    Runaways #3 gives small teases of the encompassing plot for "Find Your Way Home", but the series' strength continues to be with its realistic portrayal of growing up. People change, and that means relationships also change. Can this group of orphans run away forever - and do they even want to? Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joe Glass Nov 9, 2017

    Runaways is frankly one of the most beautiful, intriguing, and strong books that Marvel has on the shelves right now. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Nov 9, 2017

    The colors of Karolina's true form are spectacular. The posters on the dorm walls were a nod to the true college experience. Love the subtle Easter Eggs too. The anger, the shock, the angst and all the other expressions on our heroes faces say everything. When you need zero words to understand what's happening in each panel, it's proof that Anka is a true beast to be reckoned with. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ivan Alino Nov 18, 2017

    Emotionally well written and beautifully drawn, the 3rd issue of Runaways from Rowell and Anka delivered another bittersweet reunion between the main cast. Despite, the slow pacing of the story the book managed to provide you enough moments to invest in each characters' inner conflict, struggles, and development. If you want a superhero book that gives you all the feels and a different perspective on the different side of the super-powered community, then Runways is a recommended read! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Nov 9, 2017

    Rowell and the creators write a compelling story about friends reacting to each others' growth and new chapters in life. Runaways packs an emotional punch on every page in the best way. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 9, 2017

    It really does appear that the entirety of this new miniseries will involve Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka slowly getting the old gang back together. I wish that it were more ambitious from a plotting standpoint, but it's hard to argue with the results in terms of characterization. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 8, 2017

    Runaways #3 took us to Pomona College, and while the destination wasn't all too fruitful, the takeaway was just what we needed moving forward. There are many variables to take into account when taking a chance on bringing these characters together. Two years is a long time and that is more than enough time for someone like Karolina Dean to finally find happiness, for some to realize they need each other, and for others to struggle with an uncertain future.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 11, 2017

    This isn't just your average comic relaunch and I love it for that fact. The creative team is using the natural progression of time to explore and pick apart the very premise of this comic, which is a genius reason for a relaunch! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Nov 13, 2017

    A great continuation to a series that hasn't quite found its center yet. Anka, keep drawing those beautiful people and Rowell, keep writing complexly. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Taylor Vessel Dec 18, 2017

    This is a really important book starring characters that have been beloved since their inception. It plays on the ideal that we all dreamed of at one point or another, living life on our own terms without parents. What will happen to the Runaways remains a mystery, but if the past is any indicator, it won't be pleasant. Read Full Review
