    The first new Runaways story sticks the landing with style and humor, a master class in how to revive a long dormant series, and keep it both classic and new. Read Full Review

    After months of setup, creepy grandmas, teary eyed reunions, robot head revivals, heartbreaking setbacks and telepathic cats, we finally have The Runaways back in full fighting force!! Issue #6 finally lets a few powers loose and gets over that “getting the band back together” arc that we've been watching unfold. I'm excited for what Kris Anka and Rainbow Rowell have in store for the future if this run. They both have blank canvases to work with, which makes this a phenomenal time to be reading Runaways.

    Comic Watch - Ivan Alino Feb 20, 2018

    Its not perfect, but the amount of love provided by the creative team consistently delivered a wonderful job producing a high-quality story. The book will definitely capture and play with your emotions. It will make you laugh, excited, worried and even make your heartache. Runways is definitely a book I would recommend and the first arc concluded in this issue wonderfully, yet will still keep readers and the fans wanting for more! Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 7, 2018

    With the conclusion of the first story arc, it is good to have the Runaways together for a second chance at freedom from their lives. Again there's not much to anticipate from the next story arc beyond the reveal of this threat behind the scenes, and maybe finding out what happened to some others like Klara. However, not knowing what to expect should be good for the element of surprise considering it is anything goes right now. Read Full Review

    With some of the best art and characterization in the series thus far, you'd think that RUNAWAYS #6 would be a must buy. However, while I highly recommend this issue, the lackluster and high paced plot left me scratching my head on more than one occasion. While the events of the plot had me excited, the pacing broke down the strength of the events within. Read Full Review

    Molly's grandmother isn't who she seems to be. Can the runaways survive an evil Granny? With the art continuing to impress, this is a promising step into a new arc. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jrs1003 Feb 6, 2018

    Art-wise, this book is great. Kris Anka continues to put out solid work, with expressive faces and vibrant colors keeping the eyes of the reader for the entirety of the issue. Though this series has its issues, the conclusion of this issue gives a lot of hope that this will shape up to be a top quality comic in short order. Read Full Review
