    Rowell and Anka continue their fantastic Runaways reboot, this time bringing back major plot elements from the original run, including the Runaways leader, Alex, who’s back from the dead!

Sort of. But more importantly, Chase wearing pigtails! An Old Lace issue! Gert and Victor blushing at each other! The Runaways really became a family when they stopped their villain parents, known as the Pride, from sacrificing the world to the Gibborim, giant alien creatures; all of them died in the process, including the Runaways’ first leader, Alex, who also betrayed them. Now in this volume – picking up immediately where the second ended – Alex has returned and so are the Gibborim’s children, who seem less interested in avenging their parents, and more in the Runaways completing the human sacrifice their parents never did. (The cover is a sweet call back to the Pride, with the kids in their parents’ costumes.) Rowell sets this up really well – We’re introduced to the Gibborim kids and Alex in the first volume, the Runaways have seven months to figure out a “sacrifice,” allowing for other stories, and that deadline arrives in the final issues. This allows the whole volume to feel like a complete story, even though the Gibborim aren’t really explored as characters (save for one, right at the end). And just like the rest of the cast, Rowell has a strong handle on Alex, who obnoxiously takes over as team leader and clashes with just about everyone, as the Runaways return emotionally to what made them a team, the tremendous sacrifice that made to save the world, and how far they’ll go once again. That theme of sacrifice resonates throughout the B plots too, as Nico discovers something huge about her staff (involving Inuyasha’s twin, old anime reference FTW), and Gert may take a risk and sacrifice her happiness. It’s more than appropriate, since as teens we start to learn how our actions can have big consequences. But there’s also plenty of lighter moments as Victor gets a sweet robot bod, Karolina and Nico sunbathe in their spare time, and praise the sweet lord, Doombot returns! Even when returning to their roots, Rowell continues to move forward with each of these characters – including an adorably dysfunctional Christmas dinner – though I was disappointed that we don't see or hear mention of Chase and Nico at their jobs, or Karolina serving on the nonprofit board. It might have been a little cramped with the rest of the story, but they seemed like important “growing up” markers in volume two that were totally forgotten here. There is some great setup with a big choice Nico makes, and I’m curious to see if the Victorious storyline continues to play out due to Gert’s actions in the final issue. (Also, are they not public with their relationship yet?? Why!?) I FRIGGING LOVE DOOMBOT. David Lafuente takes over the art in the first couple issues and while it’s not completely atrocious, it reminded me just how attached I am to Anka’s interpretation of these characters. Lafuente draws a more cartoony style with pouty lips and bold outlines, both of which really threw me off. I’m used to Anka’s precision and unfortunately under Lafuente, characters looked either too cartoony or weirdly lumpy. Anka and Wilson returning in issue 15 was like putting on my favorite sweater. Anka is able to just perfectly capture the emotional range of these characters and Wilson’s gorgeous coloring, especially with facial tones, is just fantastic. This was Anka and Wilson’s final arc on Runaways (though they’re still illustrating the covers) (this is 100% why I put off reading this for a week or two) and although I’m very excited to see their new two-part Image story “White Trees” with Chip Zdarsky, they will be sorely missed here. (I couldn’t take it and looked at the issue 19 preview, and I very much like Andres Genolet’s art. HUGE sigh of relief. Worth the spoilers.) But can we talk about how Wilson’s coloring is just a dream. Between Lafuente and Anka is an Old Lace “interlude,” illustrated by Takeshi Miyazawa. It’s a riff on Aja and Fraction’s fantastic Hawkeye # 11, told entirely from Lucky the Pizza Dog’s perspective. (Oliver Sava over at AV Club wrote a great article deconstructing this issue.) Old Lace even overhears humans the same way as Lucky, with short vertical lines indicating gibberish (to her) punctuated with words she does understand. The homage isn’t a bad thing, but when you’re riffing on one of the best comic issues ever made (I said it), it certainly sets a high bar. Unfortunately, the issue isn’t nearly as intricate or meaningful as it should be, even without the expectations of its predecessor; it really only gives us plot points we already know, and Old Lace is more of an observer without stumbling upon anything interesting or surprising. I was at least expecting to see part of the hideout we haven’t seen before that Old Lace has made her own. Miyazawa isn’t the most subtle of artists and there could have been more creative ways to show Old Lace’s thought processes and expressions. We also don’t visually see her sense of smell, which seemed odd to me. Even with that disappointing midway issue, this was still a strong third volume in this series – Runaways is one of few I’ll buy straightaway without reading first. Awaiting volume four (I guess I can wait until October, sigh) and until then, I’ll be looking at this all day, every day:

    I finally caught up!!!! I'm not made for single issues. Honestly I just hope we dont get a cliffhanger like the end off series 3 again. Part of me still wants to know what happened. Who was the girl that looked like Gert? Who was that guy that said he was chase's uncle? And what happened to chase after getting hit by a car? He got better because he appeared later in other comics but....sigh. I will admit series 3 wasnt the best but it was just starting to get good again, than hiatus...that becam I finally caught up!!!!

With so many questions we never got answer to....all these complains are almost 10 years old. I remember looking for them in other comics because I wanted to see what happened to them but found a lot of nothing. I did find them in daken and avengers Academy but I wanted more. Than chase and nico did appear in avengers arena and avengers undercover but that wasn't runaways. This series still really isn't answering my questions....well the did explain the hand and what happened to klara so it has time but hopefully it doesn't get randomly canceled again

    The Runaways renaissance continues as Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka keep things moving in a storyline that brings back not just Alex Wilder but the initial threat that the team faced way back when, the Gibborim. You'd think this book might be losing steam after a year or so at full blast, but it's absolutely not.

I was tempted to knock off a star or so because David La Fuente's fill-in art is nowhere near as good as Kris Anka or Takeshi Miyazawa (who returns to the Runaways for an adorable side-story from Old Lace's perspective), but fuck it, I'll round up anyway. Runaways forever!

    The art, as always, is impeccable. It's sad to find out that this is Kris Anka's last volume as the artist :'( I love this volume, mainly because of Issue #15. I love that questions were answered... Something to keep in mind and look forward to because impulsive, bad decisions were made... There is this moral gray area, and the writing shows that everything is not just black and white... And, true to Rainbow Rowell feels, these little gems ❤🧡💛💚💙💜 ALSO, THAT LAST PAGE THO 😲

This run had a lot of fun issues but was mostly low-key, given that they are trapped in a house together. One issue was from Old Lace's perspective and made me love her even more. I still miss Gert and Chase's romance, somehow Gert and Victor's head don't make as good a couple... For me this was a little anti-climatic but I did enjoy the mix of quasi-superheroes doing regular things.

    Alex Wilder is back and so are the Gibborim, the aliens the Pride were going to sacrifice the world to. This series continues to be more character driven then fighty-fight, which I feel is a positive here. And this volume actually addresses a long-time pet peeve of mine which is that superheroes' rules about not killing never seem to apply to aliens or robots even though they're sentient (not to mention that there are superheroes who ARE aliens and robots).

The Runaways who argue against killing include the god-like alien who wants to end life on Earth in that argument. Not everyone agrees with the not-killing stance, but the ones holding that position aren't hypocrites.

    Individual issues read. This was the best volume yet and also the saddest as it is Kris Anka's last as artist. I'm not sure how to review without spoiling but this volume continues the tradition of using past plots and callbacks to plot a path forward. And how fitting for a YA comic, for often the choices we make as teens reverberate in adulthood. Humor, romance and action- what more can you ask for.

    Another great set in the series! Great story buildup and easy to understand with little previous knowledge of the characters. Like the others, this one once again ends with a bit of a cliffhanger. Looking forward to finding out what happens next.

    I'm obsessed with this Runaways storyline with Rainbow Rowell at the helm. I also love love love the art. There are still a few things I'm confused about, but I guess it was explained in other Runaways related storylines?

    A little anticlimactic, and the art in the first half was not to my liking, but overall this is still a solid series! I hope the time travel plotline comes back around in the future. 4/5 stars.

    When you think the most interesting issue is the one told entirely from the dinosaur's perspective, it might be time to admit that these characters just aren't as appealing as they once were.

    I wrestled with whether to award this one three stars or four. On the one hand, I felt that some of the "returns" in this volume (a member of the Runaways and some critical foes of theirs) felt a little more recycled and less fresh. This is in contrast to the first volume of Rowell's reboot, in which "getting the band back together" felt very smart, sensible, and even a little surprising.

In the end, I gave that extra star to this one because of the persistent streak of originality that continues to please me as I read this new series. The resolution of a main plot point, for example, plays out in what was (to me, anyway) a surprising direction (after hinting at some more predictable outcomes). And there's an amusing interlude shared from the exclusive perspective of the team's only silent member, the dinosaur Old Lace. If the new series continues to unfold in thoughtful, creative ways, I'll be happy to continue reading it. So far, so good.

    This volume pointed out a double-edged sword for writing in comics. Rowell certainly knows her writing stuff, and she CERTAINLY knows what she can get away with in a comic (time travel, talking dinosaurs, talking robot heads, etc). That said, she also has to make sure not to step on the toes of any previous series featuring her lead heroes.

This wasn't so bad with Victor and Doombot being in Avengers AI, because Victor and Doombot both get introductions for new readers; this wasn't so bad with Nico and Chase having been in Avengers Academy, because they have so much history that they can get the broad-strokes approach. Or, putting it another way, when Gert and the audience meet the older Runaways team, nothing has really happened to change who they are at their core. Comics are neat like that: things happen, but rarely do things permanently shift the playing field. Alex Wilder was one of those permanent shifts in the OG Runaways run. When Rowell brings Alex back into the story, it's...not all that graceful. Granted, her impeccable writing and pacing help, but still, the original Runaways run left Alex's character at a pretty satisfying place. Bringing him back in, but being UNABLE to show his resurrection, or resurrect him on-screen, significantly weakens his characterization. Unlike the other Runaways, who all feel familiar-yet-not thanks to the time skip, Alex is a cipher during this entire volume. Where was he all this time? What is his larger plan? If he's not always tormenting the Runaways, does he have any other role in the Marvel world? Is he just living out his life? And for the creative director at the time, whenever it happened, WHO decided bring Alex back outside of a dedicated Runaways run was a good idea?! Good stuff otherwise. =)

    I love these characters and this series is still full of so much greatness, but I ended up a little disappointed in this volume, and especially the last issue.

I though she'd summoned the time machine to use it herself, which could have been very interesting. This felt almost like a deus ex machina kind of solution. All that came before became less relevant: everyone going in on Alex's plan, Gert considering going back to warn them, Gib defecting. It didn't matter because this random thing basically made the problem disappear. It also happened so quickly in the last issue, making that one feel more like an epilogue, which could have been very enjoyable, but just didn't quite work for me, mostly because: - I hate Alex Wilder. I don't want to forgive him, I don't want him back with the Runaways, especially not leading them, and I don't want one of the others to come with him. I wish he was a full-on villain, but more than that, I wish I didn't have to read about him at all. (hide spoiler)] So those aren't the most positive remarks, but there's too much I love about this series to let these things spoil it. I'm very curious about the next steps for these kids. And though I'm really sad to see Kris Anka leave the series, I'm excited to see how the next artist does.

There's s a lot of mistrust when it comes to Alex given his unfortunate decision to try to sacrifice his fellow runaways to protect his family from the wrath of the gods and it seems only logical to assume that he'll repeat that action in response to this new demand for tribute. This book also includes an odd interlude story that gives more back story to the Staff of One and the nature of its power. Wasn't expecting that given the larger narrative but it worked out.

    Finally, a Runaways volume that features a plot! The Gibborim's kids have returned for what their parents were denied in the first Runaways series - all life on Earth in one glorious feast. Naturally, the Pride feel a little compelled to stop these Gibborim-lite from devouring all humans. Oh, and villainous Pride-member Alex has returned to the fold, just in time to retake the leadership mantle. It's all quite exciting!

Rowell's ability to voice teenagers is near perfect. My only real complaint with this volume is that the art for the first two issues is terrible. Fortunately, Kris Anka (and more importantly, colorist Matthew Wilson) return for the rest of the book.

    I have read the Runaways since it started, and it has long been one of my favorite books. This book brings us back to the beginning in a way that is fresh, and actually brings all the members together with Alex's return. I like that he is decidedly not welcome, as well he should not be, though his look is a little bit weird. I guess it is trying to be a bit more like the TV show than his original appearances, but it was a tad off-putting to me.

    3.5/5 stars. Wasn't as big as a fan of this volume and I thought the previous volumes were better. I did however like the Christmas issue which made for a fun read and I wish more books would include holidays in them. I did enjoy the cliff hanger at the end of the last issue in this volume. Other than that it wasn't that special and just an average read for me. I really didn't care for the dialog or what was happening in most of the issues.

    Alex is back! Ales is back, and you know trouble will not be far behind. Will Alex be accepted, oh and can the Runaways save the world.... again? . Not as good as the first 2 volumes, maybe as it feels to have tried too hard to stick to the integrity of the original seasons by Vaughan? Unfettered Rowell blew it up in the first 2 volumes, we need more of that.. I need more of that. Give me more! . . 7 out of 12.

    I remember reading the first few volumes of this series and thinking... I missed these characters but it was just sort of playing for nostalgia. I was waiting for the pay off. And, well, I hope Rainbow Rowell takes this the right way: it reminds me of some of the books Peter David did at DC and Marvel in that it may take its time getting there but when you get your pay off, it hits with full force. And they are lots of surprises but if you actually go back and reread them, you see just how well I remember reading the first few volumes of this series and thinking...

    While the first volumes in this Runaways series were about bringing everyone back together, this one is where we see the cracks start to form. Alex is back, there are new threats (or the return of very old threats), Nico is having a bit of a magical crisis, and Molly just wants everyone to get along. I continue to love Rainbow Rowell's take on these characters. The dialogue is fun and snappy, and the emotions feel very true to the teenage experience (at least, what I remember of it).

    Can't quite decide if I'm super into deciding to bring back the entire original team but I guess it makes sense with the show being on the air with that team. Nico and the staff was certainly an interesting new development and her... questionable decision is sure to have repercussions it's just a matter of when. Bringing Alex back certainly raised some interesting dilemnas and I have a feeling Gert's solution won't ultimately be as final as it seemed.

    Another fun volume in this continuation that has me wanting to follow Nico’s journey through the Marvel universe. Is it just me, or shouldn’t they get her a thesaurus to solve her magical problems? Not as much a fan of this new drawing style as it makes them all appear teenagers again rather than having the age gap between those who have time traveled and those who don’t age. Oh well.

    Runaways are great from the original up till now. Alex is back, and his criticism that the others haven't changed really reveals how much they have. Nico has a good storyline revealing interesting elements of her magic, and Old Lace has a bit reminiscent of Matt Fraction's Pizza Dog issue in Hawkeye. Good stuff

    At first I thought this was a really weird installment but I ended up liking it a lot. Except I'm not really on board with Gert/Victor? Like... I don't think it's necessary to shove her in a new relationship right away. And it seems forced? But it's hardly the focus here - there's godlike beings to contend with.
