Runaways 9: Dead Wrong – Terry Moore

The golden age is over. No comics publisher can ever let things go out on a high so this is title is dusted off and given to an entirely new team.

The premise isn’t bad but the series appears to have been re-pitched for a younger audience. Moore deals with the characters enthusiastically but he is inheriting other people’s creations. And who can live up to Vaughn and Whedon.

The biggest shock is the art. We have gone from a consistent style that lasted 8 volumes to some hyperactive fusion of emo and cartoon. It is similar to that of Chew and isn’t an unpleasing style but it is definitely not what we have been used to.

It’s not a nosedive and if you are a fan then it is worth persevering with.

Thumbs Up!
