I think I liked this one better :) Is it awful if I say that I like seeing the kids exploring their feeling and pain?! It's just really beautifully done
But still feel that Molly is too young in this and the art is still not my favorite - too cartoonish for me...
But yeah, it got better in this one :D

Now I kind of wish that I hadn't soldiered on after Moore's run. Immonen's take is better, at least with the characters. Hooray for allowing Karolina to actually miss Xavin! But the story is mediocre, and lacks some of the explanations that would be required for it to actually make sense. I suspect that the title's cancellation came as a complete surprise to the creative team, because it ends on a cliffhanger. (view spoiler) ...more

Recommends it for: cyborgs from the future with stupid names, prepubescent bricks, kids with pet velociraptors
I read the first couple of Runaways volumes, felt the series stopped being interesting after the big showdown with their parents. But I picked this volume up because it was on the shelf in the local library. What can I say, teenage superheroes are my mental bubblegum of choice.

I'm sure glad I didn't pay for this book.

So first of all, apparently some stuff has happened with the Runaways since the last volume I read, but who cares? They've met a few other superheroes but so far this band of runawa

Should have just quit after Whedon's run.

Now this volume here feels like the old runaways!!

Well that was terrible. The plot goes absolutely nowhere and the story is barley comprehensible. The dialogue is non-stop gibberish and vague pop-culture references constantly failing to hit their mark. The characters lose any and all sense of individuality, essentially boiling down into the same gibbering voice. No one is recognizable in this book, no one's voice is in tact, the 'big reveals' are meaningless, the collateral damage and character deaths are absurd and vain attempts to maintain in ...more
the art style is pretty crummy: the kids have a prom and it's hard to tell the girls from the guys because of all the hair, Chase's uncle shows up (OUT OF NOWHERE) and Chase gets pissy about it for some reason and we have never been informed of it until now: Chase killed me before
We touch base with "What If the Runaways became the young avengers" and they face off against Victorious and beat him. Problem: this cracker beats the entire future Avengers and these nobodys hold their own? Ridiculous.

Sooooo glad I gave this series one last chance. Immonen gets these characters in a way no one has since Vaughan left the book - they're not superheroes, they're not adventurers, they're just a bunch of kids who lost their families and had their world turned upside down and who are struggling to redefine what normal is for themselves.

This volume's not perfect, though - the cliffhanger ending bugged me, and I can understand why the "What If" story was included (to make the point I made above, basi

You got to be fucking kidding me!!!!! That ending was so shitty.
The entire volume was kind of pointless just like the last one, they just wanted one more volume so they could do the cliffhanger for no reason whatsoever.

What even was going on in this one? I wiki'd after finishing it to see wtf happens next but I guess they just dropped it and all is well? What's the deal with Hunter? Also it was really confusing, one second they were in the house, the next outside, and then back in it again, and then they were somewhere else in the house which was brightly lit? Meh.

I cannot believe Old Lace died. Not much action in this story. And why introduce Uncle Stein into the story?

This was an enjoyable arc. Not as good as BKV or Whedon, but probably about as good as Terry Moore's stuff. I appreciate the fact that Kathryn Immomen attempted to up the stakes a bit instead of just writing another inconsequential adventure. Along with the big thing that happens (not gonna spoil it), she also introduces a new supporting character. It's a shame the series got canceled because I liked the direction she was taking it in. Hopefully, the new series (Rainbow Rowell's) picks up some o ...more

Now this is more like it: the episodes are getting good.

It shifted back to the old Pride memories, where one character have blood connection with the mains. There are sad parts in it (yes, I feel sad), and then felt like it can be more dramatized - the characters can be more concerned about it.

Any other than that, I think this was a good volume with a cliffhanger on the end.

I just hope the new issue comes quickly.

no me da ni lata el cliffhanger, porque siento que esto ya ni era canon. matan a (view spoiler) sólo porque ya no saben qué hacer. Los personajes tienen cambios de personalidad de una página a otra. La historia no tiene coherencia y es aburrida. Tenía la esperanza de ver más de los poderes de Klara, se ven pero no tiene ningún sentido. Ojalá que la versión de Rainbow Rowell le haga justicia a los personajes.

I appreciate that this volume really attempts to circle back to some of the elements of the first few volumes that I really liked, connecting the dots and unspooling long-term consequences of their actions. I hate, hate, hate that the last tie to Gert is cut away—it feels like adding insult to injury, and the injury was severe. So ... two steps forward, one step back.

Argh...I hate these types of endings.

World: The art is okay for the last art, but the framing and the pacing of the art is a bit confusing making this slap dash story more confusing. The world building itself is sloppy and deus ex. Sudden new characters are introduced to wrap up the story the world and the stakes suddenly change. It's sloppy and not the way the series should have ended.

Story: What now? Uncle? Where did this come from? This is exactly the thoughts going through my head for this l
What the shit? Ugh, why end on a cliffhanger? That's just mean! Also, this one felt like a proper Runaways instalment again. It certainly lost itself for a bit over the last couple of volumes but this felt like the good old times again.

I enjoyed this arc, but it gets downgraded in stars because it creates a huge set of new questions and plot possibilities that never got wrapped up, and appear to have been ignored in the 2017 restart of the series.

Wait...what!? It just....ends? Like that!? The series was cancelled on THAT cliffhanger!?


Dammit, this is the first Runaways collection I've really LOVED since its early days. And.... it's over? Halfway through?

Why can't we have nice things?

For the love of all that is holy in this world! Why did I keep reading past the Whedon run?

Everything I've disliked about this title and nothing I've like about it all rolled into this last volume.
It feels like a superhero comic at this point, and it's a good superhero comic. Just not on the level of what Vaughn was doing when the series started (which I much preferred).

WTF, what the fart was that?!? Let's just pretend that the series ended at volume 8.

5 stars for a good writer and decent art after the monstrosity that was the last 2 volumes, minus 2 for ending the series on a damn cliffhanger
Mejor que el volumen anterior, pero nada que ver con los 7 primeros.
El cliffhanger final me ha roto por dentro. ¿Por qué no hay más? T.T

Runaways Vol 11 #11-14 review
Art: Reading this comic feels more like reading an Ani-manga comic then your topical American comic book (an ani-manga or film comics are comics that have the show images instead of drawn out panels see here ) the motion is fluid and you can feel and see them move as though you were watching a show instead of reading a comic. Even for those of us who can't stand American comics Sara piccalilli's art is something different it isn't like the art of the side story in th
