First, I LOVE RUNAWAYS. Don't NOT read Runaways because a long way down the line there is this volume. I think stuff like this happens with long running comics all the time. Maybe Runaways has run it's course, maybe Terry Moore is not the right person for the job, MAYBE they should fire the last two "artists."
Moore seemed like a good fit in his last arc, Dead Wrong, where he wasn't as cool as creator Brian K. Vaughan, but he found more emotional depth. And the wacky concept here seems well-forme

If this weren't Moore's last go on Runaways, I'd quit right here. Luckily, the next (and last) volume has a different writer. This volume has the same overall problems as the last. The characters, particularly Chase, have lost the character growth they'd gone through previously. Jarringly, Karolina has gotten over losing Xavin by the first pages of the very next issue. Harsh. For anyone who'd been attached to Karolina and Xavin as a couple, that has to feel like a slap in the face. And then ther ...more

And so the decent in quality continues drastically. I knew this series would struggle to maintain the high heights of the work of Brian Vaughan and Joss Whedon but this.... This was mostly an anime nightmare and I don't just mean the distracting style they chose to draw the characters in.

It really feels like now they're just spinning their wheels, unsure what direction to take these kids in. It's sad because this series really has the potential to be the "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead" o

There were a few cute moments, but overall not to my liking. The zombie story-line felt too much like a bad 70s or 80s Saturday morning cartoon.

The only reason this doesn't have a single star is due to the chapter where they visit the X-Men, cause Wolverine is adorable with kids. Other than that, what a waste of a book. What was the point of these stories? Why is the girl from Whedon's run still here if no one is going to use her character in an actual story? I've never read a non-Runaways comic by Terry Moore - and at this rate, I never will. The art is abysmal; I couldn't recognize the regular cast at multiple points in the volume. At ...more

I finally read the tenth Runaways volume and wasn't impressed. The final segment in which the X-Men guest is okay, but the earlier section of the book just isn't worthwhile at all. There's no real characterization, and what we've learned about the team in earlier books isn't paid off. The art is much too manga-influenced to bridge with the earlier versions.

This issue was so great! I didn't much care for the villian or his plot line, but I love the little moments. The team playing video games and truth or dare, and acting like kids. It was nice, to see them unwind a bit. And also hilarious.

Рисовка одна из лучших в серии, но сюжет идиотский. Зато пара неплохих ваншотов, и Росомахе снова надирают задницу.

Without the Wolverine story this would be a 2 star.

World: The art is good, I like this artist as it's more quirky, and manga influenced making the characters stand out more and pop with character. The world building here is what it is, it's merely the stage for the story and nothing of substance is here to build on. The little bit of the MU with the X-Men was a nice touch though.

Story: The Rock Zombie storyline was absolutely garbage and the villain stupid to it's core. That arc itself was 2 sta

Runaways vol 10: Rock zombies # 7-10
Art: Art shift! The first three comics are done by takeshi miyazawa the last one is done by sara pichelli. As usual both are styles are wonderful reading though takeshi miyazawa work is like reading though a colored manga and it is just that colored manga the artwork is fluid and the expressions real like reading an anime (ok bad comparison but you know how the facial expressions in anime is fluid from one emotion to the next? Same thing here) and while having

So, now that I've read all of the Runaways series that is available on Scribd (i.e. everything but Vol. 11) I have to say that I have overall enjoyed it.

Bad points: The last two volumes are not nearly as good as the rest and the change in art style and character design did not work for me. The Whedon volume was a good stand-alone story, and I think he had a good handle on the characters, but since it wasn't followed up with very well it's in a rather awkward position.

But overall, the set up wa

Picking up from the last story, crazed DJ Val Rhymin finally figures out how to make the entirety of LA (or, the vast majority at least) into his own personal minions. With the help of a former connection of Nico's parents, Val works some major mojo on anyone in the city who has had plastic surgery. After returning from a team-building retreat in the desert, our Runaways have to figure out a way to stop Val.

Following this short arc, the last issue in this collection involves Molly Hayes getting

Well it would be impossible not to compare this story to those which came before it, and yes, this small volume is dwarfed in the shadow of Vaughan's original run. In fairness to the book though, the characters are handled extremely well, perfectly capturing what it means to be a teenager. The Rock Zombie story is a little goofy and not terribly powerful, but the dialogue and character interactions were very tight. Yost's Mollyfest Destiny story is charming, and Asmus's Truth or Dare was also a ...more

There's three stories in here. I think. And I had the hardest time figuring out what the credits page meant, but I think it meant there was one, long, untitled story, and two shorter, fun-type stories. Like in a Japanese tankoubon. Only the writers and artists were different for all three.

I liked the art in the first one, except that I thought Chase was a girl at first. I was not so keen on the art in the latter two, but even those were better than some of the cover art. Still, a vast improvemen

It pains me to say that Terry Moore (whose opus STRANGERS IN PARADISE is one my O.G. favorite comics) really missed the mark on his stint with RUNAWAYS.

RUNAWAYS is one of the best, most humane and gratifying titles Marvel has put out. I can't recommend it enough. But Terry's two arcs didn't pay off (or even resemble) the complexity and voice of these characters.

THE GOOD NEWS? When they ended his stint early, I got to write part of the book!

2.5 stars.

The sniping got tiresome after a few issues, especially since it wasn't tied to any particular reason after the barely executed scatter-side-effects subplot was resolved. I don't think the writers were intentionally making the characters more negative overall; I think it was supposed to be funny? More camaraderie and friendship would have been fun to read.

Was Nico always so negative toward Chase, or is that just part of his devolution into a joke/insensitive jerk character? I noticed

Mientras más leo los Runaways de Moore, más me pregunto porqué lo ningunearon tanto. Está bien, la serie ya pasó su mejor etapa hace rato, pero eso no es ninguna novedad. Ni el genial Joss Whedon estuvo a la altura de Vaughan, el gran cerebro y corazón detrás de Runaways, así que no veo que lo de Terry Moore sea despreciable ni mucho menos. Los chistes siguen estando, el dibujo dinámico sigue estando, el aire "rebelde" sigue estando. Quizás la historia principal sea un poco tirada de los pelos e ...more

I definitely enjoyed this volume more than the previous one, but I'm just not a fan of the Terry Moore books. Maybe it's just that they're so much more episodic than the Brian K. Vaughan books? In the past couple volumes, the kids hang out and bicker a bit and then get randomly embroiled in a big fight and hug it out when it's over. In Vaughan's volumes, it felt more like the storylines were leading somewhere bigger. At least the Rock Zombies feel a bit less random than the Majesdanian fight las ...more

Better art than the previous volume. Miyazawa's faces are way too manga-looking, but at least the layouts are better and the art is clearer. Moore's story doesn't have a lot going for it, but there are a couple of nice character bits -- I liked the part where the kids are "camping" out in the desert. And Chris Yost's story (with art by Sara Pichelli) of Molly meeting the X-Men was fun. James Asmus' "Truth or Dare" story was little more than filler. Although this volume was better than the last o ...more

[This review is day two in my 30 Day Book Challenge - my least favourite book]

With Runaways: Rock Zombies it is no hyperbole when I say it is the worst book I have ever read. It is about an evil radio DJ who uses a piece of techno music to turn everyone with plastic surgery into a zombie. It is as ridiculous as it sounds, if not more. Perhaps this would work better as a stand-alone, and not almost directly after an incredibly good 48-issue run.
