This pairing of the two youth-oriented teams of the Marvel Universe is primarily, to me at any rate, for providing additional Runaways stories. I don't actively dislike the Young Avengers, but the Marvel Universe is so enormous that one will inevitably find some parts more or less interesting than others. The Young Avengers have always struck me as one of the least original corners of the Marvel Empire. The Runaways, on the other hand, are among the most original creations. For one thing, they are young and most decidedly not sure about this whole hero thing. They do some policing of L.A. to keep down some of the baddies their defeat of their parents (who were the crime lords of L.A. and ran the city with a tight fist), but it isn't an obsession to them. And until this series they were pretty content to ignore the whole Civil War mess that was afflicting the East Coast super empowered. They bring a decidedly West Coast feel to the whole undertaking, not even bothering, much to the chagrin of their youngest member Molly Hayes, to have uniforms (though Molly sometimes manages to cook up a makeshift one that looks like a really bad Halloween costume). In other words, I got this almost exclusively because there just isn't enough Runaways stuff out there to my satisfaction.

While this is the weakest installment in the Runaways saga, it still isn't bad. The story takes place after the end of creator Brian Vaughan's run with the series and immediately before Joss Whedon took place. This is far less compelling stuff than the Vaughan stories and based on the first two issues by Whedon not nearly up to the level of that either (for one thing, given Whedon's gift with dialogue, the "talk" has gotten really, really good--e.g.

I read the young avengers before this but never the runaways. I was pleasantly pleased to read about both of them in this civil war book. Good art, good story, what's not to like? In fact, I liked this book so much I started collecting all the runaways volumes.

Format: Paperback
As the Civil War rages on throughout the Marvel universe, everything and everyone is impacted in one way or another. If you read Mark Millar's main Civil War storyline, you'll know how much of a pivotal role the Young Avengers played in the battle between Captain America and Iron Man, and everyone in between. Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways finds both young teams being effected in pretty much the same way as the superhero Civil War rages on in full effect. Loyalties are tested and broken, battle lines are drawn, and alliances are forged as it appears the Civil War storyline makes good on it's promise to leave nothing in the Marvel universe unaffected or viewed the same way for quite some time. Zeb Wells, who scripted the great New Warriors mini-series not too long ago, may be no Brian K. Vaughan (whose run on the Runaways was truly something special), but he provides enough action and intrigue to satisfy any comic reader. The art throughout this TPB is solid as well, with the only real downside being that the TPB is too short and features some plot holes that don't really get tied up right away. Despite that though, this Civil War tie-in is surprisingly good, and definitely worth picking up for fanboys stocking up on everything Civil War.

I am one of those who started reading "Runaways" because Joss Whedon was going to be writing it a while. Going back and seeing what I had missed was relatively easy because all of the issues prior to Whedon's debut are now available in three hardback collections. I also picked up "Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways" even though I had no idea who the Young Avengers might be and my investment in Marvel's "Civil War" event has been limited to the main story, the Spider-Man titles, and a subsidiary title. So my primary interest here is in the Runaways, although I can appreciate the irony that the New Avengers have sided with Captain American against Iron Man and most of the "Old" Avengers. Most of the action in the Civil War is obviously taking place in New York City, so out in Los Angeles where the Runaways are running around trying to fill the void left by the disappearance of the Pryde (a.k.a. their "'rents") and they have no reason to really care about what is going on.Read more ›
