What can you do when the past return to take revenge? Well, maybe you will try to fix it as soon as you can and be loyal to you mates, Right? This isn't exactly what happen here, we have, as in other numbers, a little hormonal thing happen around that, at her age, only can finish with a fight. When they "fix" that thing the story continue as good as always.

This number is the one that significances a point of break in the life of these guys, yes, the first issue was that too but, How can you cont

plot holes/problems:

1. When a stray group of gamers come together to bring back Alex Willder from the dead. They have to gather a bunch of things that the Pride had from all over. Somehow they're magically able to get all of these random objects one of them even being the blood of Molly Hayes. How did these random gamer dudes collect all this?

2. At one point Victor, the robot, was hacked by a computer hacker so that the hacker could see everything that Victor saw. What I want to know is how a su

the runaways, written by brian k. vaughan, is absolutely one of the best new comic series in recent memory. the story of a group of kids, each possesing their own unique powers, who find out their parents are supervillians and decide to run away from home to do something about it, is filled with the kind of teenage angst and allegory that the classic superhero books are drowning in(spider-man & the x-men, anyone?).

not to mention the artwork (in this collection all done by adrian alphona), wh

Whoopsie I've already read this...I think I read it in an omnibus format, and that's why I didn't recognize it. But worth checking out if you have not read this series.

Runaways is astonishing. How did Chase go from one of the most obnoxious characters in comic book history to a certified hero? And then, by the end of the volume, perhaps he is... something else? Every turn in this volume is a welcome one, advancing the plot and character development in profound ways. The story here cashes in on the history of Runaways without feeling derivative or cheap. The past returns in such a way that still seems forward moving. This is without a doubt the best bunch of Ru ...more

I’m always surprised by the depth and character development that comes with Runaways. I think I instinctively keep assuming that it’s aimed for a younger audience and thus will pull the punches. Each issue continues to prove that theory wrong, and I am so very glad for it. Some of the information revealed in this particular volume has me reeling from the implications, and oh so very curious about how it’ll all pan out.
Obviously I’m reviewing these eleven years late, but I’m desperately trying

Solid and expected emotional end.

World: The art for this arc was better than the rest so far, we are moving more and more towards Kamala Khan Alphona art with the beautiful facial expressions and visual storytelling. The world building was solid and unexpected and set the stage for some nice little character moments in the overall story.

Story: Solid and fast paced. The first story is absolutely a delight and the rest of the tale was what you expected and what we did not. I did not expect that v

Characters: The gang is all here the drama is heighten high. Nico's secret kiss with chase is out, chase and Gertrude well you'll have to read to see. Characters come back and someone dies as well as new characters being introduced the characters here don't really change much personality wise. T

This particular trade may have the world's most deceptive cover. The Runaways are playing happily in a green field, oblivious of all their cares. The insides could not be more different.

We start in media res with our youngest member captured by an evil man with the power to turn others into stone. However, showing her own strength, bother literal and figurative, she frees herself--only to get grounded!

That's just a filler piece to the main event, which features the return of one of the Pride, wh
Reprints Runaways (2) #13-18 (April 2006-September 2006). First, Molly finds herself lost and on her own in the seedy side of Los Angeles. When she meets up with another group of Runaways, she learns that someone else is controlling them. Then, one of the Runaways greatest enemies has returned…for the first time. When a younger version of Geoffrey Wilder teams with Alex Wilder’s internet friends, he sets out to destroy the Runaways once and for all. The Runaways have become the hunted and one wi ...more

I keep giving Runaways a chance, and I have to admit that the biggest reason is that they have a few of the titles at the remaindered bookstore. Wah-wah (trumpet sound). Ah, well. In any case, unless they get more in, this is the very last title of the series that they have. So, I might be done with Runaways, as I cannot see my paying full-price for a title. Sorry, but true.

In this volume, Molly has been kidnapped by a modern day Fagin who is holding several other non-powerful runaways hostage

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, t ...more
It got better again. The story involves bringing Alex's dad back which means danger to the runaways.

First, I need to express my love for Nico's outfits.

Second, my love for Karolina's colour scheme. And the fact that she came back.

Third, I need to ask what the fuck is up with he subtle transphobia in this book? Is it necessary to have Xavin be a boy before they turn back into a girl? If they're identifying as female and a shapeshifter, I don't see why they have to keep transforming into a male

This book was really good for what it was, but I wasn't in love with it! I think for me, as the series continues I'm starting to enjoy it less and less. I'm finding the storyline is getting more confusing because it adds more parts to the story, or sub-plots as you may call them. We're introducing new characters and it often jumps back and forth between storylines which I find quite frustrating. Eventually I am finding out the meaning behind some of the sub-plots but there a still some parts tha ...more

With the Parental Guidance storyline, the Vaughan is back on top. We start off with a Molly one-off where she is knocked into the water and taken by a former professor turned wannabe Fagin who forces children to steal for him. We get to see Molly take charge for once and it's nice to see.

The rest of the issues in this run bring the behind-the-scenes antagonists from the start of this series into the light. We meet this secondary Pride, find out who they are, and what they plan to do. Unfortunate

This is as close as any volume so far has gotten to the ending of that first series...and it's all because they went back to the beginning.

WHen these books are the weakest is when they rely on the bigger world and set characters from other books, that we all "know." I don't mind them in passing, and I don't mind when there's jokes about NY. But I want this to stand on its own. And this does. You feel every step of the journey here, BECAUSE it's so personal.
