Vicky's Dirty N' Nerdy Blog: "Runaways"

June 8, 2017

We all love it when we’re right!


For years I’ve been talking about one of my favorite comic book series called, “The Runaways” written by the talented Brian K. Vaughan(Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Saga, Paper Girls). The story basically is about a group of teenagers who find out the one thing ever teen thinks of from time to time . . . that they’re parents are actually EVIL! When they find this out, they run away and they discover they are not actually who they thought they were their entire lives!

BJ always gave my crap for how much I talked about it, especially since the series has been on hiatus for years. I was always worried to recommend it to BJ since the story revolves around teens and was worried he wouldn’t relate.


After what seemed like an eternity of BJ picking on me, I whipped out my new huge trade copy and forced it on him.  After reading a few issues within the trade, he had to swallow his words and admit the one thing we all love to hear: “You were right.” He really enjoyed the series, and I mean, why wouldn’t he? With the brilliant writing of Brian K. Vaughan, I should have figured out sooner this was a story for him.


If you’re a fan like me, or are curious about the series (which I recommend for anyone ages 12 and up) I have great news.


A while back, Hulu announced that they will be doing a series about this crew of misfit kids and although we don’t have a date yet, we do have a promo shot!


Even Brian K. Vaughn is digging it!


On top of that, Marvel announced a new series from writer Rainbow Rowell and artist Kris Anka!


All I’m going to say is that 15-year-old Vicky is losing her mind!


Without giving away an spoilers, this image is the only one that is making me go both “Hmmm” and “WEEEEE”!



Until Next Time...
