Runaways 5: Escape to New York – Brian K. Vaughan

Here we have another cameo filled volume. Some are returning in an attempt to provide plot and others are here because a book full of kids couldn’t possibly have enough wisecracks right?

To be fair the emotion gets a boost with hormones and responsibilities colliding. But the whole piece feels very disjointed with two short stories butting up against each other. Vaughn realises he can put any superhero he likes this book and so the gratuitous guest stars use up page time that could and should be used on these wonderful emerging child starts.

The art is good stuff with an appropriate style for this young and energetic adventure.

Thumbs Up!
