I never liked Runaways after BKV left it so I'm not too broken up about this. It's a good story though which I'm really enjoying.

Combining this with it getting people ranting like nutjobs on the internet....we need more books like this on the market which combine good writing with controversy.

Holy crap! Hopeless killed Nico! When this book was announced, I kind of assumed that some of the bigger names, like X-23 and The Runaways would be the ones who escaped death. No way would they kill those dudes off, they are too popular. But now… Nico Minoru is dead and Tumblr is weeping. I don’t really understand why, she’s a Runaway, that book was never shy about killing off it’s characters, Alex bought the farm, so did Gert. Hell, I’d even go as far to say that part of the reason why that book was so good was that BKV wasn’t afraid to kill people. Death in comics is always going to be there, and freaking out about it misses the point, if the death is well written, then it’s fine. And this death was well written.

Picking up from last issue, where Katy has killed Juston and disappeared with the Sentinel and Death-Locket, Nico’s group of survivors goes after her, leading to some carnage. Nico manages to get everyone else to safety, but then comes the twist… Katy has managed to gain control over the Darkhawk armour! Chase/Darkhawk blasts Nico’s hand off and she is left for dead. I think it’s great that Hopeless has, with Katy, introduced a villain to this series that isn’t just Arcade. If all of the contestants in Murder World were straight-up heroes, then it would be too easy for them all to just team-up. But throw in another villain? Nobody is safe. Especially when she has control of 3 very powerful weapons.

The art for this issue is by Riccardo Burchielli, which is awesome. I was a huge fan of his work with Brian Wood on DMZ and Northlanders, so it’s great to see him getting work at Marvel. It’s a shame that Kev Walker needs fill-ins, but man, the quality has been good. This series continues to be excellent, as I said, nobody is safe, not even Nico Minoru, but she got to go out as a hero, saving everyone else, and heck, there’s even the slight possibility that she will survive. I doubt it, but you never know.

Look, I was a huge Runaways fan back when I was a teen and it was originally coming out, but you’ve got to grow up sometime, and now… her death makes me sad, but I’m not going to throw a tantrum about it. This is a great comic because of the threat of death, even to the bigger names, Nico had to die so that this title could sustain itself, and man, it’s only going to get better! (or worse, I suppose)

I'm a little behind on it, but I've enjoyed the series.

I don't love the premise entirely, but again, I understand it. I think Hopeless has done a good job with it, and I need to take a few hours to read them all again.
