Didn’t care for the art in the first half at all. Did enjoy seeing the avengers! ( )

Solid. Very solid run. Interesting stuff with aliens and how K leaves, building up to a whole new Cloak and Dagger run that was soooo much better than the last, and the whole requisite drop-ins with Cap, Wolverine, Iron-dude, (but no iron fist!) and even some Luke... but what was most fun was Spidey. Spidey is so cool.

All in all?

It was ONLY A LITTLE BIT of a puke-fest.

Well, any issue that starts with Swarm is going to be a cheesy kind of fun, because... Swarm. That's one thing I like about Runaways, they aren't afraid to go silly for the simple fact that the premise is a group of kids trying to fix some of the bad their parents used to do as villains and stop outside baddies from filling the power vacuum they left when they brought down The Pride.

In this collection, Karolina meets her destiny, then the group goes to New York to help and old "friend" who has been accused of a crime he did not commit. And of course, what trip to New York would be complete without running into a bevy of Marvel A-listers!?

I do feel like the story with Cloak and Dagger could have been fleshed out a bit more and taken longer to tell, but it's still a good story, and I love all the cameos in this collection.

Another solid set from Vaughan and team. ( )

As much as I love Cloak and Dagger, this volume's plot was lacking. There were some funny parts, like Molly with Wolverine and Gret and Victor with Spiderman; but besides that it's so forgettable. ( )
