• The Runaways descend into one of the most terrifying Marvel Universe locations ever: HIGH SCHOOL!
•  It goes better for some than others.

    Every element of this issue"from Rainbow Rowell's narrative to Dee Cunniffe's color work"tells an earnest and, at times, understated story of young adulthood with stunning ease. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 6, 2021

    Runaways is coming out very rarely these days, but each issue is pure gold! This new storyline is exactly what I love about Rainbow Rowell's comic. It's grounded, it feels so real, yet never loses sight of the crazy nature of these characters. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 3, 2021

    Runaways smashes back onto the shelves with #33, a delightful little adventure that completely lives up to the title's reputation for greatness. Every character moves forward, the art is delicious, and a great big-picture threat gives the last act a real punch. As usual, this isn't a great place to pick up the story in media res, but for faithful followers of the title, this issue is a happy, long-overdue treat. Read Full Review

    Runaways #33 is a gentle comfort in this dreadful time. Rowell, Genolet, and Cunniffe offer a fun and endearing slice-of-life issue, with a now-familiar cast of characters that will bring some company to many readers. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Feb 3, 2021

    Runaways #33 is full of smaller details and hints to pick up, as the Runaways face change, both as a group, and on very personal levels. Once again we're seeing the group learn and grow, and that brings with it more surprises. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Rob Stryczek Feb 3, 2021

    For fellow X-Men fans, they will absolutely love the second half of this issue. The appearance of Wolverine and Pixie coming in for a rescue mission is a fun Krakoa connection and Im very curious to see how the next issue continues this. I absolutely adore the scenes showing how Nico is a huge support system for Karolina. If you enjoy the slice of life idea for superheroes then this is the issue for you. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 8, 2021

    The Runaways have been through a lot, and it's nice to see them dealing with the consequences, even if it doesn't feel like a lot occurs in this issue. Read Full Review

    Well, I do wish we got a page or two of a comic strip style for previously on, but other than that, good issue! The majority of this issue seems like set-up, but the way we are getting it is quite boring and uninteresting. Thankfully it was the last scene that made the difference for the issue. Too bad the art went downhill a bit. As for now, I would recommend this issue only because of the last scene. But not something that is a necessity. Read Full Review
