Runaways, Vol. 3: That Was Yesterday Reviews

  • Natalie

    I'm obsessed with this Runaways storyline with Rainbow Rowell at the helm. I also love love love the art. There are still a few things I'm confused about, but I guess it was explained in other Runaways related storylines?

  • TinTin Kalaw

    The art, as always, is impeccable. It's sad to find out that this is Kris Anka's last volume as the artist :'(

    I love this volume, mainly because of Issue #15. I love that questions were answered...

    Something to keep in mind and look forward to because impulsive, bad decisions were made...

    There is this moral gray area, and the writing shows that everything is not just black and white...

    And, true to Rainbow Rowell feels, these little gems ❤🧡💛💚💙💜

    ALSO, THAT LAST PAGE THO 😲

  • Jason

    Individual issues read.

    This was the best volume yet and also the saddest as it is Kris Anka's last as artist.

    I'm not sure how to review without spoiling but this volume continues the tradition of using past plots and callbacks to plot a path forward. And how fitting for a YA comic, for often the choices we make as teens reverberate in adulthood. Humor, romance and action- what more can you ask for.

    The Runaways renaissance continues as Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka keep things moving in a storyline that brings back not just Alex Wilder but the initial threat that the team faced way back when, the Gibborim.

    You'd think this book might be losing steam after a year or so at full blast, but it's absolutely not. Rowell's dialogue and intimate understanding of the characters and their continuity makes this arc even more fantastic, with some revelations regarding Niko and the Staff Of One, as well

Rowell's dialogue and intimate understanding of the characters and their continuity makes this arc even more fantastic, with some revelations regarding Niko and the Staff Of One, as well as the Gibborim themselves, and some decisions for the team to make that really hammer home that these kids can't just live in the shadows and work in the light - they need to decide who they're going to be.

    I was tempted to knock off a star or so because David La Fuente's fill-in art is nowhere near as good as Kris Anka or Takeshi Miyazawa (who returns to the Runaways for an adorable side-story from Old Lace's perspective), but fuck it, I'll round up anyway. Runaways forever!

    I finally caught up!!!! I'm not made for single issues. Honestly I just hope we dont get a cliffhanger like the end off series 3 again. Part of me still wants to know what happened. Who was the girl that looked like Gert? Who was that guy that said he was chase's uncle? And what happened to chase after getting hit by a car? He got better because he appeared later in other comics but....sigh. I will admit series 3 wasnt the best but it was just starting to get good again, than hiatus...that becam

He got better because he appeared later in other comics but....sigh. I will admit series 3 wasnt the best but it was just starting to get good again, than hiatus...that became canceled. With so many questions we never got answer to....all these complains are almost 10 years old. I remember looking for them in other comics because I wanted to see what happened to them but found a lot of nothing. I did find them in daken and avengers Academy but I wanted more. Than chase and nico did appear in avengers arena and avengers undercover but that wasn't runaways. This series still really isn't answering my questions....well the did explain the hand and what happened to klara so it has time but hopefully it doesn't get randomly canceled again

    This volume pointed out a double-edged sword for writing in comics.

    Rowell certainly knows her writing stuff, and she CERTAINLY knows what she can get away with in a comic (time travel, talking dinosaurs, talking robot heads, etc). That said, she also has to make sure not to step on the toes of any previous series featuring her lead heroes. This wasn't so bad with Victor and Doombot being in Avengers AI, because Victor and Doombot both get introductions for new readers; this wasn't so bad with N

    This volume pointed out a double-edged sword for writing in comics.

    Rowell certainly knows her writing stuff, and she CERTAINLY knows what she can get away with in a comic (time travel, talking dinosaurs, talking robot heads, etc). That said, she also has to make sure not to step on the toes of any previous series featuring her lead heroes. This wasn't so bad with Victor and Doombot being in Avengers AI, because Victor and Doombot both get introductions for new readers; this wasn't so bad with Nico and Chase having been in Avengers Academy, because they have so much history that they can get the broad-strokes approach. Or, putting it another way, when Gert and the audience meet the older Runaways team, nothing has really happened to change who they are at their core. Comics are neat like that: things happen, but rarely do things permanently shift the playing field.

    Alex Wilder was one of those permanent shifts in the OG Runaways run.

    When Rowell brings Alex back into the story, it's...not all that graceful. Granted, her impeccable writing and pacing help, but still, the original Runaways run left Alex's character at a pretty satisfying place. Bringing him back in, but being UNABLE to show his resurrection, or resurrect him on-screen, significantly weakens his characterization. Unlike the other Runaways, who all feel familiar-yet-not thanks to the time skip, Alex is a cipher during this entire volume. Where was he all this time? What is his larger plan? If he's not always tormenting the Runaways, does he have any other role in the Marvel world? Is he just living out his life?

    And for the creative director at the time, whenever it happened, WHO decided bring Alex back outside of a dedicated Runaways run was a good idea?!

    Good stuff otherwise. =)

    A little anticlimactic, and the art in the first half was not to my liking, but overall this is still a solid series! I hope the time travel plotline comes back around in the future. 4/5 stars.

    Alex Wilder is back and so are the Gibborim, the aliens the Pride were going to sacrifice the world to. This series continues to be more character driven then fighty-fight, which I feel is a positive here. And this volume actually addresses a long-time pet peeve of mine which is that superheroes' rules about not killing never seem to apply to aliens or robots even though they're sentient (not to mention that there are superheroes who ARE aliens and robots). The Runaways who argue against killing

The Runaways who argue against killing include the god-like alien who wants to end life on Earth in that argument. Not everyone agrees with the not-killing stance, but the ones holding that position aren't hypocrites.

    The gang end up trapped in their own house when backstabbing betrayer Alex returns from the dead along with the offspring of the Gibborim, the gods who demanded a sacrifice and promised to make the Pride immortal. None of the Runaways want to participate in human sacrifice. The Gibborim give them a week to decide, leaving one of the gods, Gib, as a guard. Nico and her staff have a little chat, while Gert and Victor try to figure out if time travel can help them.

    This run had a lot of fun issues

    This run had a lot of fun issues but was mostly low-key, given that they are trapped in a house together. One issue was from Old Lace's perspective and made me love her even more. I still miss Gert and Chase's romance, somehow Gert and Victor's head don't make as good a couple... For me this was a little anti-climatic but I did enjoy the mix of quasi-superheroes doing regular things.
