Runaways #1 (2017),
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by shawn SPURLOCK
(W) Rainbow Rowell
(A/CA) Kris Anka
GET READY TO RUN! The 'IT' book of the early 2000s with the original cast is back - Nico! Karolina! Molly! Chase! Old Lace! And, could it be? GERT?! The heart of the Runaways died years ago, but you won't believe how she returns! Superstar author Rainbow Rowell (Eleanor & Park, Carry On) makes her Marvel debut with fan-favorite artist Kris Anka (ALL-NEW X-MEN, CAPTAIN MARVEL) in the series that will shock you and break your heart!

This was a serviceable way to reintroduce this group, if you've already read at least some of their books. As it stands, this issue read more like a "How Cool is Nico?" one-shot.
The answer-cool enough to bring back a dead character in a way that doesn't make your eyes roll up into the sky.
This clearly has the potential to be a good ongoing...if Marvel lets it get past #6, or #117 if you've been legacified.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
