Joss Whedon comes on board to write the last arc of the series It s a darker tone as the Runaways head to New York and make a deal with the Kingpin It s a little rough around the edges at first but after the first issue Whedon gets a handle on the characters Whedon sets up Terry Moore s run by bringing in some new members and shaking up some of the relationships I like Michael Ryan s turn on art He has a heavier, darker line and use of shadow but still manages a detailed, organic look. So Brian K Vaughan left his creation The Runaways to concentrate on other writing work not in Marvel but before he left, he endorsed to the one man he trusted his babies with, Joss Whedon It was great that Marvel and Whedon were able to hammer out the details to allow him to work on Runaways despite his heavy workload Michael Ryan was drafted to provide art and Jo Chen was retained to produce her magnificent covers.I really liked how Whedon managed to maintain BKV s vision for the characters w So Brian K Vaughan left his creation The Runaways to concentrate on other writing work not in Marvel but before he left, he endorsed to the one man he trusted his babies with, Joss Whedon It was great that Marvel and Whedon were able to hammer out the details to allow him to work on Runaways despite his heavy workload Michael Ryan was drafted to provide art and Jo Chen was retained to produce her magnificent covers.I really liked how Whedon managed to maintain BKV s vision for the characters while adding his own contribution to the mythos Taking the kids out of their comfort zones, space and time wise, was inspired Whedon added new characters of his own, sort of a early 20th Century superfolks called Wonders.Still, I think there was something missing Six issues were too short and I have feeling that Whedon could have donewith the characters Despite that, this is a great collection of post BKV Runaways that deserve to be on the shelf along with your other Runaways trades It takes him a couple of issues to find his feet but, ultimately, Joss Whedon proves he could ve been a worthy successor to BKV on the Runaways A shame he only stuck around for six issues, really.Michael Ryan s artwork is very nice, too. Ok, i need to say two things about this volumen, firstI love the covers, i mean look this This is my favorite The second is about the historyWell i like the story, in fact have really great things time traveling, new characters, change of place but, i think that something of the essence is missing, I can t say what, but something isn t working for me EvenI like what JW does with Chase, is less silly andinteresting, but I in the fact that he uses Gert for this history.The fi Ok, i need to say two things about this volumen, firstI love the covers, i mean look this This is my favorite The second is about the historyWell i like the story, in fact have really great things time traveling, new characters, change of place but, i think that something of the essence is missing, I can t say what, but something isn t working for me EvenI like what JW does with Chase, is less silly andinteresting, but I in the fact that he uses Gert for this history.The first issue didn t catch me, they just appeared in NY with no reason and no explain what happen between the vol 7 end, with Iron man in the forth, and vol 8 beginning When they meet The Punisher is really funny but in a pancake humor not in an intelligent humor and this joke is way too long it happens in the 2nd issue and, at the end of the last issue this joke still was running.Maybe i m too fan of BKV work and for that isn t as great for me, but if you like Whedon, and don t fall in love with the history in the beginning, you maybe wanna read this, you be able to enjoy it Just now read this, wanted to see what Joss Whedon would do with Brian Vaughn s series, as I see them as the two best writers in this kinda stuff alive I had just read Fray after all these years of it being out there but this is better, crisper, with the sort of on fire imagination brings to transform a project We go back in time in this series think steampunk fashion and tech, okay, so hip But I liked it a lot Entertaining series, with a twist, for teens. Um Was only okay Joss definitely has the kids dialogue and personalities down but boy was there WAY, WAY too much going on in this story Dozens of new characters allied in multiple factions, at least two time periods, a largely extraneous first act You kind of get the feeling that the story was something Joss had thought up separately and then shoehorned the Runaways into as simply an excuse to tell it Not bad per se, but weirdly confusing. .Read Pdf ♌ Runaways, Vol. 8: Dead End Kids ♧ Running out of timeRebellious teens Nico, Chase, Karolina, Molly, Victor and Xavin are survivors All

Runaways, written by Joss Whedon Astonishing X Men, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and illustrated by Michael Ryan New Excalibur, New X Men Meh It wasn t a beginning, and it wasn t an ending It wasn t even a continuation of volume 7, really in between there were Civil War crossover mini series issues, of which there is no mention either at the end of volume 7 of the start of volume 8, leaving many readers to wonder what the heck happened after Iron Man and a bunch of riot police nabbed the kids in their lair at the end of the prior issue, and why the kids are in New York negotiating with the Kingpin at the beginning of this one Meh It wasn t a beginning, and it wasn t an ending It wasn t even a continuation of volume 7, really in between there were Civil War crossover mini series issues,

and plotting in purgatory hide spoiler that does not seem to be picked up anywhere, not even in the further volumes of Runaways after the series restarts with a new issue 1 damn but it would have been exhausting to keep track of this storyline when it was live in the late 00 s At least this volume contains a somewhat coherent story, as Joss Whedon picks up the writing mantle for these final 6 issues The basic premise is that power players are always at war over New York and it is a war that can never be won The Kingpin knows this, but to prove it to the Runaways to the reader our undereducated teens go back in time A horrendously over large number of powered characters are invented, do very little, and a big brawl of forgettable characters ensues This mess doesn t offer the Runaways any character development, other than to mess up an unimportant romantic relationship and give Chase some new tech Overall this series has severely underwhelmed me I guess that Brian Vaughan s work is not quite all solid gold again I blame the constraints of Marvel publishing foremost, as we know what Vaughan is capable with when has complete freedom I have no interest in reading the further adventures of this lacklustre teen drama series, but I fear that I will find myself reading the current Rainbow Rowell penned sequel series in the future Something is missing here The previous volume ended with Iron man standing in the Runaways hideout in LA This one opens with them trying to hide out in New York City Something happened between one issue and the next Crossover event Probably Sigh It isn t really necessary to know what happened there to understand the story here, thank goodness One of the best things that I can say about Whedon taking on the book is that he writes the characters in almost exactly the same way that Vaughan Something is missing here The previous volume ended with Iron man standing in the Runaways hideout in LA This one opens with them trying to

goodness One of the best things that I can say about Whedon taking on the book is that he writes the characters in almost exactly the same way that Vaughan had They all sound pretty much the same On one hand, that s good, because it s far less jarring to jump from one book to the next On the other hand, I would like it if somebody would remember that Molly is actually eleven and write her accordingly.The time travel storyline actually works fairly well It s cohesive, different, and interesting And time travel has been a background part of Runaways from the very beginning, without ever being used So it was about time that somebody did The new characters introduced Klara and Lillie were interesting enough in their own rights, as well as for the story possibilites they unlock I wish both of them were going to be in the book in the future, but that wasn t meant to be Overall, this is one of the better volumes of Runaways that I ve read, at least as good as the first volume I am one of these annoying people who only picked this up because it was written by Joss Whedon I m also a queer, feminist, disgruntled comics fan, and completely confused as to how I never heard of this title until Whedon wrote an arch of it.If you re here because you re a Whedon fan, I don t think you ll be disappointed It has all of his hallmarks funny quotable dialogue, a complex but tight knit plot, cultural references that make you feel smart Yellow Kid as a turn of the century super I am one of these annoying people who only picked this up because it was written by Joss Whedon I m also a

particularly charming , and lovers whose love is so lovely that spoiler it s a wonder that they only end up living meaningless lives full of regret and don t die horribly in each other s arms.But, listen, if you re just a Whedon fan and you dislike comics or whatever, you re missing something Part of what I really appreciated about the Runaways was that it felt like this team was created with people like me in mind people romanced by superheroes kids, but sick to death of of melodramatic straight white people with perfect bodies stuffed into improbable costumes I love entering the Marvel universe from the vantage point of this group of kids I hope to seeof this series soon
