Runaways : Dead End Kids

Joss Whedon - "Runaways" Comic Book - Issue 29 - Comicsnexus.insidepulse.com Review

Thursday 21 February 2008, by Webmaster

I went through an honest, semi-serious bout of depression when “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”, and “Firefly” all disappeared from my television screen. I had felt rather “close” to many of the characters on these shows, and it saddened me that I wouldn’t be able to follow them any longer. But wow - if I had known what the cancellation of his TV shows would do to Joss Whedon in terms of comics production, I would’ve started my own write-in campaign years ago.

“Buffy Season 8″ by itself would have been enough for me, let alone the enjoyment I’ve gotten from his run on “Astonishing X-Men”. But his recent “switch-off” with Brian K. Vaughn on the “Runaways” title has opened my eyes to yet another excellent read.

In the current storyline, the group of Runaways (a group of children and adolescents with random super-powers) has jumped back in time 1907. But, this isn’t any early 20th century that you’re familiar with: yes, there is a fight in the last issue with some strike busters, but the number of super-powered folks almost seems to outnumber the normal humans in this neighborhood. Meanwhile, the kids are trying to figure out how to get home, various personal relationships are in flux, they try to convince a young girl to join them, a couple of villians from their past show up, and no less than three other super groups of the time are preparing for a turf war.
