    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.

Rowell's dialogue and intimate understanding of the characters and their continuity makes this arc even more fantastic, with some revelations regarding Niko and the Staff Of One, as well as the Gibborim themselves, and some decisions for the team to make that really hammer home that these kids can't just live in the shadows and work in the light - they need to decide who they're going to be.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 😲

    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.

    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.

    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 think the reason for that boils down to two factors:(view spoiler)[- The end was anticlimactic. There was so much build up with how far they would go to save the world, but in the end Gert just went and send the bad guys to the future. I didn't even realise that was what she'd done at first.

There was so much build up with how far they would go to save the world, but in the end Gert just went and send the bad guys to the future. I didn't even realise that was what she'd done at first. 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.

    No sé por donde empezar, esperé mucho que salieran todas las issues y poder leer el volumen completo y no morir con los cliffhangers.(view spoiler)[En verdad el arco principal de los hijos de los Gibborim no me gustó tanto como otras historias anteriores y la resolución del conflicto fue un poco Deus Ex Machina, aunque Gib me cayó muy bien y espero que se una a los Runaways, sus padres también eran supervillanos después de todo.Respecto a Alex, tenía mucho miedo de la forma que lo iban a reintro No sé por donde empezar, esperé mucho que salieran todas las issues y poder leer el volumen completo y no morir con los cliffhangers.(view spoiler)[En verdad el arco principal de los hijos de los Gibborim no me gustó tanto como otras historias anteriores y la resolución del conflicto fue un poco Deus Ex Machina, aunque Gib me cayó muy bien y espero que se una a los Runaways, sus padres también eran supervillanos después de todo.Respecto a Alex, tenía mucho miedo de la forma que lo iban a reintroducir, pero es claro que los Runaways sí tienen memoria y no iban a perdonar todo tan fácil. Creo que Rainbow le dio una profundidad al personaje que es muy interesante, no es alguien que vea las cosas como bueno o malo, sino que baraja cual es la mejor opción dentro del problema en que se encuentran.El tema de Nico y The One fue interesante pero siento que el trato nuevo le va a jugar en contra en el futuro.y Gert... entiendo que sienta una conexión con Alex ya que los dos volvieron de la muerte, pero al final pensé que le iba a pedir que se quedara, no irse con él. Siento que esto también va a ser muy interesante en el siguiente volumen. (hide spoiler)]Y finalmente respecto a los ilustradores fue un poco raro que las 2 primeras issues fueran de otro ilustrador y no de Kris Anka, pero habrá que acostumbrarse ahora que solo hará las portadas 😢

    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. ALSO a tad salty that this was Kris Anka's last time ill 3.5/5 stars.Wasn't as big as a fan of this volume and I thought the previous volumes were better.

    Entretenido regreso a las tramas que dieron origen al grupo, con un par de giros interesantes, y conflictos personales entre los personajes que retoman viejas rencillas. En cierto modo es como si todo lo publicado entre el primer volumen y este no hubiera ocurrido. A ver hacia donde van ahora que de momento la trama de los Giborrim se queda aparcada.

    This is not as good as volume 2, with some ups and some downs. I enjoyed it but wanted more out of it.
