I read the original Runaways series back in high school and loved it. This revival was awesome and I‘m looking forward to the rest of the volumes, along with catching up on Hulu!
(Karolina is still my favorite)

So this copy was actually vol. 1-6 and feels like a complete story but I'm definitely going to be looking out for the next issues! A little spoilery if you watch the show but overall very entertaining!

1. As a kid it was always Squeeg. Ughhh🙄 Can't believe I said that in public😬
2. This book sucked and so did the title -The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake.
3. Rarely does it ruin it. I read for me and to enjoy the story🤙
4. I LOVE book covers! A lot of thought and effort goes into them. But it won't be the decider for reading it.

VanChocStrawberry That would be awesome!!! Thank you. It‘s for 8th grade. But of course the reading abilities cover middle grade and YA titles. I‘m returning to traditional teaching after 15 years of doing other stuff (co-ops, library, home schooling, etc...) I‘m excited, but nervous! 6mo

I was super confused when I started this because I didn‘t know it was a continuation of another series. So it took me a minute to figure out what the heck was going on. Once I did, I enjoyed the characters and their interactions, but I think I will go back and read the originals and then try this one again.

Weaponxgirl The originals are great! 8mo

Argh...Issue #19 which is the first with a new artist drawing the comic (Anka still does the covers) & happily the comic looks as good as ever. Alex has plans & when the Runaways reject him & those plans, he heads off on his own. Molly follows & talks him into letting her tag along. Of course there‘s more to it but no spoilers. As in previous issues—strong writing, great artwork & fantastic characters make this comic a really great read.

Issue #18–Anka‘s last Issue as artist (he‘s shifting to covers only) & it‘s good one. The Runaways face off against the children of the Gibborim, Alex Wilder once again demonstrates he‘s willing to do just about anything to get what he wants, the future is in for a shock (trust me, it makes sense) & under all the pressure, are those signs of cracks in the group? And, a great cliffhanger ending. This is a fantastic comic & well worth a read.

Issue #17 is one of the best yet...and really, that‘s saying something because Rowell‘s reboot started strong & just keeps getting better. The children of the Gibborim are back & they want the Runaways to complete the ritual. These gods have a planet to rule after all. The Runaways can‘t agree on what to do & things are getting complicated...Really, better & better. Love the cover &, as always, the artwork is a highlight. A definite recommend.

Last but not least in today‘s comic roundup, Issue #16 in Rowell‘s Runaways run. What else needs to be said besides it‘s Christmas!?! Well, more happens but no spoilers here! As always, the writing is fantastic and Anka‘s artwork equally wonderful. Anka recently announced Issue #19 would be his last, though he will continue doing covers on occasion, so there will be some changes coming. Can‘t wait to see where the story goes next!

Can‘t find the issue number but it‘s not so important for this post which is just to show what Marvel did this week to honor Stan Lee. All Marvel comics, at least those I saw, did the same thing with the banner across the cover, and black pages, a portrait and Stan‘s Soapbox at the beginning and end of the comic inside. Great tribute.

My rating should be taken with a grain of salt. I picked this up because I'd read the menu from a pizzeria cover to cover in a single sitting if Rowell wrote it. I never read the original run though, and my understanding of the story suffered from that. I did enjoy the characters, and both the writing and art are solid. It interested me enough that I might go pick up the original to put it into perspective. For now, it's just okay.

Ohhh, Issue #15 is good &, as always, hard to review without spoilers. There‘s plotting, conversation with good/evil/maybe both (?!?), enemies new & old, secrets & all the good stuff. Rowell‘s writing is excellent—she made the jump from book to comic with no trouble—& Anka‘s art is fantastic. It‘s always fascinating to see superheroes living their every day ordinary lives when they aren‘t being super & Runaways excels in this. Another great issue.

Technically Issue 14 which picks up where things left off after the return of someone unexpected. Children of the Gibborium also show up, angry that the Pride did not finish their task, & demand what they are owed. I don‘t want to say too much more except that there is a great “interlude” featuring Old Lace which is very fun. Lafuente & Miyazawa did the artwork for this issue (Anka the cover) & it does not disappoint. Another great installment.

This was the “it” book of the early 2000s ... and I missed the hype because I was in a phase of reading super dark memoirs of recovering drug addicts.

heidisreads AND now I‘ve realized that although I did have the gist of the story of the Runaways before reading this, I‘d probably get more out of this if I read the 2000s issues first. 1y

Ok, really Issue #13. Don‘t want to say too much so I avoid spoilers but...old villains return, new complications arise and it can only get worse from here. This issue was illustrated by David Lafuente and I enjoyed his style which differs a bit from Anka‘s (who still did the cover). Another good installment in this fabulous reboot. Definitely looking forward to the next issue!

Issue #11: The Runaways aren‘t superheroes, they‘re kids with varying powers, who happen to have had super evil parents, who have to figure out how to navigate through life. In this issue Gert, now 2 years younger than Chase, struggles with the new status of things while Victor struggles to find a new body. Everyday problems for not totally normal people definitely makes for an interesting story. I really enjoy this series. Highly recommended.

Issue #10 actually...

Honestly, what would we do if we found a cupcake just sitting there on the table? Like Julie, who is thinking about breaking up with Karolina, we might well eat it, hopefully without unfortunate side effect of turning into a 13 year-old kid. Ugh. Being a teenager again isn‘t Julie‘s idea of fun but is there a way to reverse the spell? This series is excellent—great writing, plotting and artwork. Definite recommend.

So I jumped into this one thinking it might be a sort of reboot...but it's not. It continues the story from the previous series, and doesn't do a whole lot to bring anyone up to speed. It is interesting enough and the characters are kind of cool. I just had no idea who anyone was or why they are a group.

I picked up “The Runaways: Vol. 1” because I‘m trying to read more graphic novels & especially because I‘ll read absolutely anything written by Rainbow Rowell. She‘s my personal “get-me-out-of-a-reading-slump, make me laugh, make me cry” goddess. If ever I feel literarily let-down, I pray to her & she delivers.

ANYWAY, this was fun. I know nothing about superheroes or the X-Men but I caught on fairly quickly. Dialogue is quick, witty & sharp.

Clare-Dragonfly It took me too long to figure this out. I was looking for a Hamlet reference. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1y

I came into this without any knowledge about the Runaways and a whole lot of love for Rainbow Rowell. It kind of drops you in and you take off running, which when done well, leaves you wanting more. I can‘t wait for vol. 2!

Quick graphic novel/comics read. I loved the original Runaways series. I haven't had a chance to check out the TV show. Curious to see if Rainbow Rowell does the series justice. #graphicnovels #comics #runaways

leahbird I read some of the original series and have enjoyed the show but I've not tried the new Rainbow Rowell series yet so I'm interested to hear what you think. I love everything else she does so surely this will be good. 1y
tonyahoswalt @leahbird It turned out to be pretty good. It takes place two years after the original series, so the characters are older. 1y

So. Much. Drama. People & robots fighting over Victor, Karolina fighting with her girlfriend (whoa) & Molly fighting with her best friend. Oh, & Nico gets a job. This series keeps getting better & better. Love the storyline, Anka‘s artwork & excited to see where the story goes. If you‘re a fan of the original series & haven‘t started Rowell‘s reboot, do. It‘s excellent. If you‘re already reading it, you know what I‘m talking about.

Yay for book mail day! First up, Runaways: Find Your Way Home, the fabulous Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka reboot of the already very cool original Runaways from Brian K. Vaughan. Ever wonder what happened to the group of kids who overthrew/defeated their evil villain parents? Short answer—lots! Volume One includes the first 6 issues along with some great variant art from Skottie Young and Kevin Wada. Definitely a recommended read.

Cannot figure out how to get the latest issue tagged. So yeah, took a short break from the very good “The Bloodprint” to catch up with the gang in the latest issue of Runaways. Don‘t want to say too much but I really like what Rowell is doing with the story, Anka‘s art is fantastic and I can‘t wait to see what happens next. If you haven‘t read Runways before, start with the original series and then read Rowell‘s. So good!!!
