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
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
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
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.

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
Review to come! :D

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
I think this is the last one my library has so I don't think I will be continuing this series. I did enjoy it though! Plus, the kids playing Truth or Dare was pretty funny.
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

I love this series to bits. Missed reading the Runaways .
Meh. I still miss Gert.
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

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
This was a decent volume, although certainly not as good as Vaughan's or Whedon's ones. The Rock Zombie story idea was good, although it didn't go anywhere particularly interesting. The reappearance of the X-Men was fun. Unfortunately there's no overarching plot, and there's less character development than I'd like (and less Old Lace!).
The artwork, while better than the previous volume, still isn't as good as Alphona's.
Christopher Mclean
And the decline in quality continues. Once again it feels like this book is really treading water rather than moving along with the fantastic character development we got earlier in the series. To add to the problems by this stage the treading water is not even all that entertaining. Once again I feel like Moore had a decent idea for a story here but the executing left a lot to be desired.
It wouldn't be fair to compare this to when Brian did the writing...I mean the guy is a genius. And the fact remains I love the Runaways.

I liked the story, but the later issues of Runaways had a little problem with the style of comic. I found the lines too blunt and thick and the colouring wasn't doing it for me. Artwise it wasn't awesome, not story wise either, but I'm still liked it.
James Asmus
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!

Issue #10 (collected here) was split as two 11 page sto
Somehow, bad got worse. Zombies.

This made me want to trade places with Gert.

The only reason I give it 2 stars instead of 1, is because of the one-shot with a different artist and writer of Molly going to the X-Men. That was at least showed, there was still something left alive inside this story.

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

This was waaay better than Terry Moore's previous volume. There's a few touching character moments, mostly involving characters interacting with Molly, a fun story involving zombies, some sweet art, and a pretty great short involving the X-Men.
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
Runaways against a radio DJ who turns everyone in LA with plastic surgery into zombies for either no reason or at least no reason that I remember. Just crap.
And the title continues to go off the edge of the cliff. This was actually quite painful to read after how much I loved this title in the early days.
You know I'm not really into the runaways any more. I'm over it. And these are not the x-men I know, either.
[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.
