In the months between the Runaways battling their parents, being broken up by the Avengers, reforming, and the present, the group has found a new base under the La Brea Tar Pits and have made it their mission to keep LA free of crime. They quickly learned that while their parents were evil and were trying to destroy the world, they did have a positive effect on LA; they were powerful enough to keep supervillains out of the city. With them gone, a power vaccuum has been created with numerous villains trying to get a foothold in LA.
Nico Minoru is the new leader after Alex proved to be a traitor. The daughter of two dark wizards, she controls the mystical Staff of One which can cast powerful spells... but only once.Read more ›
The first six issues make up the "True Believers" story-arc, which begins with the kids trying to kids trying to do something about the supervillains who are starting to show up in L.A. to take advantage of the power vacuum created by the defeat of the Pryde. Meanwhile, a teenage superhero support group named Excelsior gets an offer of $1 million to track down the Runaways. That is before the kids get a new mission when a future version of Gert pops up and warns that in the future a man named Victorius is going to betray and kill not only the Avengers, but the Fantastic Fourteen and every other superhero. Before she dies, future-Gert tells them to find Victor Mancha, the boy who will grow up to become Victorius, and kill him now, before he becomes too powerful.Read more ›
This time around, we get twelve issues. One six issue arc, one two issue mini-arc, and one four issue arc. The cherry that tops off this Comic Sundae is a twelve page Runaways/X-Men crossover story that was given out on Free Comic Book Day. Other than the original comic, you can't find this story anywhere else. But, that being said, there's no reason why you'd want to. The story is inconsequential and the art is horrific. It's cool as an extra, but don't look forward to it as an epic super-team crossover issue.
Now, about the actual story: I reviewed the individual arcs here Runaways Vol. 4: True Believers and here Runaways Vol. 5: Escape to New York, but I'll reiterate. The stories are great and the dialogue is snappy as always. This is Brian K. Vaughan here. Its elementary knowledge that he'll always deliver a story that'll make you laugh and nod appreciatively at the talent of his writing. The art ranges from okay to great; Alphona isn't great at drawing the major marvel superheroes, but he excels at drawing the major "Runaways" characters. Speaking of those good ol' kids, I'm sure you returning readers are wondering how they've been.Read more ›

Volume two isn't quite as compelling as volume one, but still a good read. I recommend the hardcover, because the softcover collections are teeny.Published on May 8, 2007 by Sebastian
