I have all of runaways in HC's, but I periodically pick up some singles to check in and see how its going, this book has been steadily declining since BKV left.

I picked up this issue today, have a couple of reads through and post a review by the end of the weekend.

Runaways #7: I haven't read this since Whedon's run because I've been collecting them in trades. Now I'm not sure if I'm going to pick up the next trade or not. This is not the Runaways I've been enjoying but I think part of that is the art. It's waaay to close to Manga for my liking. The characters feel slightly off from what they have been. BKV did it the best and Whedon gave a good attempt and for the most part, did well, but Moore and crew. Highly dissappointing.

Since I'm in BOC limbo I went ahead and double dipped. It's not as good as the previous two issues, but I still liked it. I'll probably do a re-read before posting a review.

Apart from the one panel, I thought Chase looked fine. I liked the art a lot, but I've already said that I was a fan of Miyazawa going into this. :wink:

Since, other than the boring by the numbers story, my big problem with this book is the art and not that it is bad, but just inconsistent with the artist work on the book before and with everyone else who has worked on the book, I offer the following quote from my review...

When Alphona was working the book, Miyazawa seemed to be able to keep the characters in line with what the creator envisioned. With each arc on the book, Miyazawa has strayed further and further from the fusion of the original design and more in line with books published by Viz.

The style, in itself, would not be a bad thing, except consistency is lost. After Ryan gave the book a typical capes sheen at the conclusion of the second volume of the book and Ramos found his groove again at the onset of this third volume, there was no longer a cohesive style to the book. Just when Ramos’s super cartoonish style had grown on even his detractors, we get this issue.

Where is Alphona these days?

He hasn't done anything since he left Runaways.
