Hey I am reading a lot of MAnga now... I don't remember the book ever looking like this, did the guy ape the penciller he was filling in before? Chase looks straight up like a thirty year old woman.

I haven't got the issue yet, but Miyazawa has always had this manga style, he used it on Spider-Man loves Mary Jane too.

Miyazawa is great. His SMLMJ work was fantastic.

I won't have the issue for a few days, but I'm guessing if you're having problems with how the characters are drawn it's probably because you've gotten used to Ramos.

I didn't expect it to look like Ramos, but I didn't expect Chase to shrink and become a woman either, so who knows, I will take a look at my back issues and compare before I review.

The only preview I could find did have him looking a bit fem, much more so than he did in Miyazawa's previous Runaways issues.

I still think it's closer to what Alphona was doing, but it is a more rounded/traditional manga approach. Mostly I think he just did the hair a bit too flat and didn't give him enough of a nose. I'm judging that based on 2 panels though.

I got used to Ramos on the book, but I never liked how big he drew Chase or how crazy ridiculous the square jaw was.

I like Ramos a lot. His style is definitely different from most others and for some reason I've always been a fan.

I love Ramos, but some of his recent work has been crap, X-Men for example was a mess.

As for the book at hand I went and looked at Vol. 1 11 & 12 and Vol. 2 7 & 8, while the 1st volume issues he did were more mangafied than Alphona, 7&8 were more so than those and this one more so than the middle ones. I think between the artist reverting back to his more familiar style with great fierceness every outing and the marked difference between him and Ramos, it made it more drastic.

I liked this issue a lot, it was the best since Vol. 3 began, it's a pity that just as Moore is getting into a groove that he has to leave.

Review coming by the end of the weekend.

:smt011 You like that stupid Blue Beetle book as well don't you :smt011
either that or it was so much like Scott Pilgrim that you forgot it wasn't.

It was average at best.

I don't like Jaime's Blue Beetle book, I dropped it at #7, but apparently after that was when it started getting really good, so what do I know?

I just thought this was a solid issue of Runaways, off-beat superhero stories with good character moments and funny lines. It was the best issue of the book I've read since BKV left.

I had such high hopes after the first issue of this volume, they have been crushed like your spirit will be one day, young one.

Got to agree with Punchy. This was the best issue of the run so far. I'll get a review in tommorw.

Agreeing with Punchy is just a way to disagree with me... I'm on to your little games.
