This is the sixth volume of collected Runaways graphic novel stories. The basic premise of Runaways: six kids, mostly teenagers, are thrown together once a year because their parents are all friends and have a yearly meeting. But this year, the kids accidentally witness their parents’ “meeting” and see them killing a girl. It turns out that the six sets of parents make up “The Pride,” a group of super-villains who rule Los Angles and most of the west coast. Disgusted by what their parents are, the six run away together, hence the title. In this volume, youngest member Molly is separated from her friends and finds herself held captive by a Fagin-like man who takes in orphans and makes them rob banks for him. But Molly is determined to stay away from the life of crime her parents led. This volume is a little deeper than the last few have been, but there are still lots of pop culture references, funny lines, and plenty of action. I love this series and recommend it frequently and enthusiastically. And they are quick reads!
