Pick of the Week: “Runaways” #1 by Noelle Stevenson and Sanford Greeneon August 17, 2015 at 3:54 pm
Of all of the “Secret Wars” tie-in books that I have read so far, “Runaways” #1 is my favorite. All of the other books seem to rehash old ideas/storylines/events (with varying degrees of quality), but “Runaways” #1 seems to be straying from the pack by presenting something new: a gathering of young familiar heroes in a high school setting with a sort of John Hughes-vibe. This book is fun, breezy, witty, and, most importantly, very entertaining. The book is a welcome palette cleanser from the event composed of events that is “Secret Wars” (which is also excellent, btw).
