I always knew I'd like comic books (I really enjoy serialized entertainment; it's why I prefer TV to movies: the long story arcs, the fully developed characters, etc), but I have been hesitant to try them because comic book communities seem so daunting and insular. X-Men has always been a comic series that intrigued me, but at this point there are like six million issues. How do I know where to start? But, with this comic book being so recent and so handily packaged in bound volumes and being av ...more
This is great! It sort of makes me sad, since I've had it sitting on my to-read pile for over 9 weeks & I was planning on just letting it go without reading it for some reason, but it's so spectacular it makes me depressed to think of all the other stuff that just sits there & sits there that I never end up reading and even though I know the odds are against all of that stuff being equally as awesome - still. The never-ending quest to read All The Good Stuff.

Anyway, this book sort of rea

One of the best comic series I've ever read. Bar none.
Great stuff. Love these kids -- I even came to like Chase, which shocked me. They're well-written and believable. (and I have to remember that their pop-culture references are 10 years old already!) Great moment when they get called "Power Pack", and it was lovely to see Cloak and Dagger again [damn, that little Molly is strong] -- and to see Dagger both get called out for her costume and to get pissed off when she is called "Dazzler" by one of the kids.

Artwork was kind of crap in the first arc,

Six children run away from home when they discover their parents are a secret super villain group known as The Pride. The discovery of their own weapons and powers allows them to plan a rebellion against their evil elders. Brian K. Vaughan is the writer so you know you're in for a great read from the start. The loveable team of Alex, Chase, Nico, Molly, Karolina, Gert and her pet velociraptor(!) provide plenty of laughs and memorable quotes. Runaways is one of those ridiculously enjoyable books ...more

I needed a break from all the '15 releases I was reading (and most not enjoying, unfortunately) and this was the perfect cure. Yeah, it was super cheesy but I loved the characters and the ending was so, so shocking! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next volume.

Good stuff! I like the way they came up with an entirely new group of superheroes and still managed to mix in a few cameo scenes with older Marvel characters like Captain America.
Can't wait to read the next volume!

The deluxe edition has the complete first series of Runaways, 18 issues in all. It's a complete storyline, beginning to end. We start with six teens (and one preteen) discovering that they're parents are actually very powerful supervillains, and running away as an act of rebellion. Eventually, we get to the confrontation that we all knew was inevitable. The first six issues, which deal with the initial act of running away, was a really strong opening to the series. The last six issues, which cov ...more

What happens when you discover your parents are actually evil supervillains?

Brian K Vaughan's PG Marvel comic is all kinds of fun! Starts off kind of average, but takes the time to properly develop each of the characters and really build an engrossing and action-packed story. Overtly set in the Marvel universe, the comic regularly references the heroes we all know and love, plus the X-Mansion gets a shout-out, and there is a great cameo of one of the better known Marvel heroes. Is it just me, or

The big volume finally came to an end. I enjoyed the mythology and artwork here but also found The Pride never gained any traction to be really villainous. The twist got me, I must admit the signs were probably there but I kept forgetting one of the Runaways was secretly a bad guy. The characters were very on the money in my opinion, not heavily white washed or conventional, very individual and focused. The biggest problem I had with the characters were the parents, the writers kept the humour a ...more

DC superheroes have capes, while Marvel characters have psychic dinosaurs. I mean please, I think that just proves my argument right there. For any and all of you comic book lovers, this is a wonderful read, and it just keeps going. Two more volumes, plus a guest appearance in Daken Dark Wolverine that I just had to get. I would even recommend this to people who have yet to get into comics. In this first volume, we follow these five kids, each uncovering more about themselves and their parents a ...more
Loved this!

My only intro to the Runaways was their tie ins to the original Civil War arc. I loved them then and I loved them here as well!

I couldn't stop reading and that's saying something for a book about teenagers. I'm adopting Molly as well because she's adorable!

I'm kinda bummed out at who was revealed to be the mole. I mean, after 2005's run of YA, I'm still upset when the kid that looks the most like me turns out to be dishonest/evil.

Loved the interlude with Cloak and Dagger. They're se

A delightful and wonderfully written title with genuine, likeable teenage characters. Feels authentic without feeling "try hard," which is impressive for a series that has a sentient velociraptor named Old Lace as a main character. Highly recommended for any folks that love inventive, progressive storytelling.

Graphic novel bind up of the first 18 chapters. It's about 6 teenagers who find out that their parents are super villains. Along the way they also discover they each have super powers. It's a great story about friendship, revenge and lots of twists and turns. Highly recommend you read.

Lots of fun, really enjoyed the Brian Vaughn story with Adrian Alphona art (two issues had a different artist and definitely didn't enjoy the art as much in those two). Great mix of super-whatevers with aliens, mutants, time-travelers, sorcerers, mad geniuses, etc.

Arsenic and Old Lace, hah!

I love this comic series so much! I can see why Joss Whedon was a supporter from the beginning (and later, a contributor). It's fun, punchy, and the characters jump off the page.
When presented with this from my birthday wish-list, husband said: "you have the cultural tastes of a 15 year old boy". Yeah - cause it's way more fun than reading Rebecca Wells.

Runaways begins with another annual get-together of wealthy, charitable adults and their children. The children loathe having to get together and hang out for a couple hours while their parents lock themselves in another room. They're sick of being in the dark so this year Alex decides they should see what they're up to and shows everyone the secret passageway to spy on their parents. Then when they do stand on the other side of the mirror and look in they see a monstrous

This was an interesting and entertaining comic, especially when you consider the underlying premise, but I don't really have a desire to continue the series in any later form. All of the classic superhero references and appearances were lost on me, so people who know those stories will probably get a lot more from this than I did.

In love this book but I recommend for pretend because it has stuff that is not for kids but it is awesome
3.5 - A highly entertaining and breezy read. Arsenic and Old Lace were my faves, though the entire cast was charming. Loved the touches of fantasy in a largely cape book. Quite looking forward to reading the next volume!

For many years, I've heard rumors of this series and how awesome it is. So I came into this with high expectations. Also, I managed to pick up the first three volumes for $20 last week. It was a ridiculous deal for these large hardcover editions. I think the first two have about 30 issues of the comic between them (haven't looked at the third one yet). I'm not overly thrilled with the peach color used on the spine of the books though, that could be better, I think.

But all that is beside the poi

This book is the third series I have read by Brian K. Vaughan, and maybe his best I have read. This book collects the first three volumes of this book which is also the original complete run of the title. It is a wonder what a good editor does for a writer. A bunch of kids find out that their parents are super-villains and they have inherited special abilities from them. The group decides to fight crime instead and the first target is naturally their parents. The story is simple enough with all ...more

I had been planning to try this series eventually since I'd heard a lot of good things about it, but it was the Jo Chen covers that finally drew me in. Well, the covers on the later volumes. But since I don't like starting a series in the middle, unless I have no choice (which is pretty much the situation in most of the Marvel/DC Universe canon-- being able to start at the beginning is a great feeling.) I grabbed the first volume.

The story doesn't strike me as being revolutionary, but it has the

Full disclosure: a student handed me the book after spoiling the twist at the ending, urging me to read it and be as disappointed as they were.

Fuller disclosure: I still had fun reading the tale of six super-powered teens who have to confront the greatest danger in Southern California: their parents. The opening pitch by Vaughan "Smallville meets Harry Potter", is fitting and a fine start to the surprising and sprightly stories of a scruffy super-team finding its way. The pace is excellent, the

That's one way to deal with the conflict between parents and their children :p It's creative and original. You'd be more likely to expect a story where a group of kids discovers their parents are superheroes, but the opposite is the case in Runaways.

I'd heard people rave so much about it that my expectations may have been a little high going in. It's still a fun ride though. I'm not in love with any of the characters, but they did grow on me. I sympathize with Karolina in particular because on t

This is one of the few current Marvel titles that I follow. >.>

This series is about a group of kids who barely know each other. They have met once a year, for their entire lives, hanging out for an evening as their parents get together for the annual meeting of their club. Well, now our kids are teenagers, and they start getting curious... what is this club? They make the unfortunate decision to spy on the meeting, and they discover something horrific: their parents are supervillains.

Runaways is a lot of fun and so compelling that I lugged it around for an entire day just to read it in my downtime. Brian K. Vaughan created a masterful story with interesting characters and a fast-moving plot. With the premise that some kids discover that their parents are super villains, the portrayal of the kids and their parents is neither entirely good or bad. The kids so selfish stuff to balance out their hero status, and the parents are worried about their kids as much as they are angry. ...more
