    While I enjoyed Rainbow Rowell's first volume a lot, this second volume was AMAZING! She's really not afraid to move these characters in new directions and mix up their relationships. The first volume was basically going back to the roots of the team, but this one is moving them forward, and I'm loving where they're all going. I can't wait to see where Rowell takes them next! 5/5 stars, and definitely a worthy continuation of the original comics.

    That last issue! The whole arc was great and I thoroughly enjoyed every issue, but wow, that last one! I have three spoilery shouts: (view spoiler)[ - NICO AND KAROLINA. We all knew this was coming, BUT STILL. <3<3<3<3 - GERT AND VICTOR. Did not see that one coming. I'm not sure how I feel about this in the long run. I'm still hoping for Gert and Chase to make their way back to each other, but with the age difference, that might be impossible. And then that scene with Gert and Victor wa That last issue!

And then that scene with Gert and Victor was absolutely gorgeous, with Victor's confession and the butterflies, and I loved it. I think they could be great. I love them both so much and I hope they can make each other happy. - ALEX. MOTHER F-ING ALEX WILDER. WHAT?!? Seriously, Rainbow sure does love to bring back characters. Can't wait to find out what's going on here! (hide spoiler)] So.. yeah. Totally in love with this series and these characters. I'm living in Scotland for a few months, which means I can buy the issues right when they come out, instead being a month behind on everyone else because of shipping. Good thing, too, because I need to find out what happens next ASAP. It's gonna be great.

    4.5 stars. I think having the characters be a little older really works. They're a little more matured, and more rational about a lot of things. All the while still being the characters we love. PS: Thank you Rainbow Rowell, for writing a Chase Stein I actually enjoy reading.

    [Read in single issues] What a fantastic volume! I never read past the third volume of the original Runaways series so I know there's a lot of history with there characters that I don't know. But with the way Rainbow (can I call her that? I read so much of her stuff, I'm starting to feel like she's a really close friend so I'll call her Rainbow) writes, I don't feel 100% out of the loop. I love how she brings up things that previously happened in their history but makes it feel natural. She ackno [Read in single issues] What a fantastic volume!

I love how she brings up things that previously happened in their history but makes it feel natural. She acknowledges that these characters have a deep, rich history and uses that to her advantage by weaving a story that both old and new readers will appreciate. This is definitely one of my favorite titles coming out of Marvel and it will always be on my pull list.

    3.5/5 It was a fun and engaging read but still it was lacking something for me. I love the rebuilding Victor plot and random appearances of the Doombot, how the Runaways are trying to be a family even though they've been apart for long... But I think the romances and relationship dramas are moving a little too fast for me. While I love how Karolina and Nico's relationship is developing, it got a little spoiled for me how it was intertwined with Julie's plot. I'm not really sure about Gert and her 3.5/5 It was a fun and engaging read but still it was lacking something for me.

I'm not really sure about Gert and her developments in that area, though. But I need to say I adore Kris Anka's style – he's the perfect artist for this series. It's still an enjoyable read but still not totally in love with it.

    [Read as single issues] The band may be back together, but that doesn’t mean that they’re playing in harmony. With tensions running high and every member of the Runaways coping with their everything-old-is-new-again situation differently, it’s only a matter of time before things explode. All it takes is a surprise visit from Karolina’s girlfriend and a magical age-defying cupcake, not to mention Doctor Doom, and the Runaways fragile family bonds may fracture before they’ve even unpacked their bag [Read as single issues] The band may be back together, but that doesn’t mean that they’re playing in harmony. With tensions running high and every member of the Runaways coping with their everything-old-is-new-again situation differently, it’s only a matter of time before things explode. All it takes is a surprise visit from Karolina’s girlfriend and a magical age-defying cupcake, not to mention Doctor Doom, and the Runaways fragile family bonds may fracture before they’ve even unpacked their bags. Best Friends Forever is a clever little arc. Rainbow Rowell does a bait and switch, making it as if the main plotline she introduces is going to be the most important one, but it actually impacts one of the subplots even moreso and becomes something entirely different by the end of the four issues. The character interactions remain absolutely top notch; I’ve never seen anyone get these characters as well as she does since Brian Vaughan created them and that’s high praise indeed. The way she threads in previous continuity like Avengers AI and Julie and Karolina’s relationship is perfectly pitched so that it nods to past stories without confusing new readers, and the voices she gives the characters are all so distinct, and yet so effortlessly done. The true masterpiece of this volume though is probably the last two issues, two one-and-dones that deal with the aftermath of Best Friends Forever while focusing more on the individual characters than the whole group. Issue 11 brings Gert into the spotlight for the first time properly since she was brought back to life, and how she copes with both the new dynamic between her and the other characters and her and the rest of the world now that things have changed is again practically perfect. Meanwhile issue 12 looks at Karolina and Nico, picking up some plot threads that Brian Vaughan left hanging and running with them fantastically, before ending on a gut-punch of an ending that I didn’t expect to come into play just yet. Of course, I can’t leave out Kris Anka. His eye for design makes all of these characters look like real people, in real clothing, and there’s no effort spared in any issue to make sure that they’re wearing new, always appropriate outfits. He does so much with so little, and his facial expressions are absolutely amazing – you’ve never seen a deinonychus look as expressive as Old Lace does here, and even with some help from Craig Yeung and Triona Farrell in place of his usual inker (himself) and colourist (Matt Wilson), this book doesn’t miss a beat on the art front either. I cannot stop singing the praises of Runaways. From the story to the characters to the art to the respect for what came before, it’s literally doing everything right. If there was a rating higher than five stars, I’d be giving it out. Runaways is the perfect comic book, and I don’t think I’ve ever said that about any comic ever.

    A better arc than the last, as the Runaways have finally gotten the band back together and are ready to go on adventures again. But of course, Karolina's girlfriend, who for some reason IS NOT NICO? shows up and ruins everything. Chase and Nico become parents. Victor gets a vacuum. A certain doom-y friend shows up looking sharp. Molly makes a friend. Gert and Old Lace... just chill I don't really remember what they did. I want to eat this comic because it looks so pretty.

    4.5. ESE FINAL!!! no sé si pueda esperar hasta que salga todo el siguiente volumen, creo que voy a tener que empezar a leer los issues mensuales. Con este volumen se confirma que Rainbow Rowell sí que conoce a los personajes y además se arriesga a llevar la historia en nuevas direcciones, las ilustraciones de Kris Anka siguen perfectas como siempre. En cuanto a la trama, casi todos pasaron por un dilema, excepto Chase y Old Lace. Me gustó que explicaran que pasó con Klara, que siempre sentí que f 4.5.

Me gustó que explicaran que pasó con Klara, que siempre sentí que faltó desarrollar más su historia, tengo el presentimiento que en el próximo volumen sabremos algo de Xavin, ya que al parecer los personajes no paran de volver 👀 Me da mucha penita la situación de Víctor donde se nota que tiene miedo que ese futuro que Gert advirtió se haga realidad

    Not going to lie, a part of me is VERY bitter about that butterfly scene at the end and almost wanted to lower the star rating because of that, but ain't can't do that because everything but that was absolutely perfect. I love these characters so much, I love seeing how they are growing, and even though I only finished this two minutes ago I am already in withdraws and counting down days til I get to read more of them. Also, Kris Anka absolutely KILLS it with these characters outfits, I am truly Not going to lie, a part of me is VERY bitter about that butterfly scene at the end and almost wanted to lower the star rating because of that, but ain't can't do that because everything but that was absolutely perfect.

    This volume was a bit slow-paced for me. More of the gang getting back to their groove with the Molly story and that "whatever happened to Klara?" oneshot. But then the end of #12 bulldozed the whole story back into place :))) Also, I love that weird shadow thing with Nico. Are we finally going to know what ever the hell happened to her after Murderworld?? 🤩

    Read as individual issues. Rowell and Anka continue their wonderful run. A fun, funny heartwarming and heartbreaking arc. The art remains stunning and the plot hits all the right emotional beats and sets up a new story for their third arc. I can't wait. If you've enjoyed past Runaways runs or Rainbow Rowell's novels, this is right up your alley.

    I wouldn't say that this is that much of a step up from the beginning of the series, but goddamn, that issue where Gert goes out into a changed world and sees how much things have advanced... That's gold and it's one of the better emotional moments across, what, 60+ issues or something? Runaways is finally fun and touching again and I'm for it.

    i really love this comic so much, of course the story has been so good and the character development (and deanoru!!!) but also the art, there are so many fun details in it that makes this comic so enjoyable, like victor's head being in the weirdest places, everyone;s expressions and clothes and just everything ps i love victor mancha!!

    85/100. Leer Runaways es tan refrescante. Casi no conozco a los personajes y ya les adoro. Cuando tenga un ratito, me pondré a leer los primeros volúmenes de Runaways porque estoy seguro de que aunque esté spoileado, me van a encantar.

    Rushed emotional stuff that seems written by an 11 year old mixed with a couple funny titbits just good enough to make you forget by a couple seconds that the plot is shit. And that last panel... So much potential wasted. This series is over for me.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I really like the runaways but not gonna lie, it's getting a bit annoying. I'm annoyed that dead people keep coming back to life and the fact that everyone is constantly making out with each other. Like it's couple roulette. They really need to add more peeps to the team or something.

    This newest installment made me want to go back and reexperience the original series, because it gave me the exact same sense of joy and heartbreak as the original did!
