Something about this group of kids suddenly finding out that people close to them are super-villains is really resonating with me lately. What's best is that they remain hopeful and vow to fight together on the side of good. ( )

I think I've been reading too much Vaughan and this one seemed kind of formulaic at some point with one person per issue discovering their powers. BUT it was fun and I'm interested, so I'll definitely be reading volume 2 if I can get my hands on it. ( )

interesting premise, neat characters. he doesn't do a lot with it, though. but hey, he was young, lots of time.*g* Joss Whedon's Runaways: Dead End Kids late took all of this and ran with it, and made something great (and later still poached Vaughan to write Buffy too for a while). ( )

This is a really great premise. Hoping the rest of the series lives up to its potential.

Such a great idea for a graphic novel. Original and fun. I really enjoyed this one.

Great storyline. Cool artwork. Developed characters (although slightly stereotypical). This is such a great book. I read the whole thing in one sitting, because I just could not put it down. I can't wait to read volume two. ( )
