First, the art. I was not a big fan of the art direction they took for this series. It's not how they made the teenagers look, I was fine with that, it just seemed a bit sloppy at times and like the artist was like, "eh, whatever."

Thought it was kind of blah, then my daughter who is the big Runaways fan in the family explained that nobody from the actual Runaways comics showed up in this issue and it sucks.

So, I dedicate this one star review to her.

The twist at the end was pretty clever though.

Terrible art, terrible characters, terrible cast dynamics, the only remaining characters from Runaways original run is Molly Hayes.

WHY was this even called Runaways?!

A big book of nope.
Interesting start to a new series. I wish there were more actual "Runaways" though?

Great storytelling, but a bit wonky art. The art go from amazing to super rushed. I can't really put my finger on why.

Oh Molly, you are adorable and I love you. This is a lot of fun, and I'm excited for the rest of it.

This was chaotic and entertaining, but mostly entertaining. I don't have any previous knowledge of this story/group, so it's all good.
