+ Pull List

•  The most battle-heavy issue of RUNAWAYS (and possibly ANY COMIC EVER) is here and you won't believe your eyes.
•  Doc Justice and the J-Team (i.e. the Runaways) has their most dangerous mission and it does not end well for anyone.
•  The Runaways end this issue very very different from where they started it.

    The "Cannon Fodder" arc has been the best arc yet in this run of Runaways, and the final installment absolutely sticks the landing. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 18, 2020

    Runaways #31 draws a curtain over the title's current arc, but before it does so (complete with some tempting foreshadowing), it goes all-out in its brutal depiction of the deadly conflict between the team and the manipulative Doc Justice. This'll put you through the wringer, emotionally speaking, but you'll like where you end up. Read Full Review

    Truly a great issue! Enjoyed the writing and the art. Such a shame that the “Dad” part got swiped away and no reactions from anyone. This issue I highly recommend. Lots of action and scenes that will have you on the edge of your seat. And with that cliffhanger, what is going to happen next and when will we see that character again. This ending feels like an ending to the book until it gets rebooted again. Hopefully Rainbow can keep up with these amazing issues! Read Full Review

    Runaways #31 was an extremely satisfying conclusion to the most recent plot arc, made all the stronger by the brilliant artwork supporting it. Read Full Review

    This last issue was absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. Rainbow Rowell told an amazing story with this six part story and cracked The Runaways just a little bit. Andres Genolet and Dee Cunniffe absolutely smash it on the art, giving everything a tense feeling and dynamic colors. They really make you believe that Doc Justice is a true villain and make this arc worth reading. Overall, this was a dark and fitting end to one of the better Runaways arcs since the book restarted!

    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Mar 18, 2020

    This issue of Runaways is light-hearted and a quick read. It's designed for young teens to enjoy and relate to, so of course another parental figure turns out to be a villain. I do feel like this is the quintessential Runaways team, but it does sometimes lack the depth the original run had back in the early 2000s. Read Full Review

    This story was overly long and this issue provides a solid enough ending, but I would have liked a lot more punch and pizzazz. Read Full Review
