Nice things people are saying about Runaways . . .
"(Rowell's) writing is as sharp and charming as always, and the arc she’s crafted is brimming with hope."
"This is a title where every character feels real and three dimensional, more than just archetypes or action stars but like actual kids with actual concerns, desires, deep-seated fears, and the ability to grow and change."
– Retcon Punch
“Everyone in Runaways is growing up, but the creative team doesn’t confuse maturity with grimness or despair. These young heroes are growing up so they can find love and joy with the people they care about the most, overcoming the pain of the past to give themselves a brighter future.”

"Like Rowell’s novels, perfect gems of pop culture fizz and real heart, this is killer stuff: angsty, romantic, and consistently surprising."

"Runaways represents not just a high mark for the franchise, but one of the best teen-centric books published by the “Big Two” of Marvel and DC Comics in recent memory."
"‘Runaways’ is so much fun and accessible to new-and-old readers alike. It’s the rare continuation that rivals the initial conception."
— The Comeback
"[Rowell's] character voices are warm, troubled, and yearning, and Anka is as comfortable depicting couture as heartbroken tears. This isn’t just a fantastic new run for steadfast fans. It’s a coming-of-age journey all its own."
— The Verge
"Rowell proved to have just the right amount of reverence for the original series while also taking the characters in new and interesting directions. [...] “Runaways” is the perfect spiritual successor to the first series."
