Goodreads Synopsis:


The “IT” book of the early 2000s with the original cast is back–Nico! Karolina! Molly! Chase! Old Lace! And, could it be…GERT?! 

The heart of the Runaways died years ago, but you won’t believe how she returns! Superstar author Rainbow Rowell (Eleanor & Park, Carry On) makes her Marvel debut with fan-favorite artist Kris Anka (ALL-NEW X-MEN, CAPTAIN MARVEL) in the series that will shock you and break your heart! Did Chase and Gert’s love survive their time apart? Have Karolina and Nico’s feelings made their friendship impossible? What emotional landmines lie in wait to DESTROY the Runaways?!


I read the original Runaways series a couple of years ago. I loved it, and I was so disappointed when I got to the last book. I was so excited about this new graphic novel series!

This story takes place two years after the ending of the old series. It’s been a while since I read it, so I didn’t remember how it ended. It took a while for me to catch on to what was happening. I also had the plot from the TV series on my mind, and that is a completely different story. However, I loved this story, too!

The graphics in this story were amazing. They looked so realistic. I wasn’t crazy about the art in the original series, so this one was a big improvement. There were also a bunch of funny parts. Who doesn’t love a villain with telepathic cats?

I loved this graphic novel! I’ll have to read the second one soon!

What to read next:
