One of the more fan favorite cult titles over the years that has gotten close to getting a movie is that of Runaways. That’s now coming back in a reworked form as part of Secret Wars with the first installment debuting on June 17th, 2015. The new series is one that brings together quite an interesting cast of characters from across Battleworld of the teenage set that are about to do exactly what the title suggests! The new book comes from writer Noelle Stevenson of Lumberjanes fame and Uncanny Avengers artist Sanford Greene. Check out the covers and unlettered pages below!
Plot concept: Classes, exams, detention. Seems like a normal school, right? Except your headmaster is actually a diabolical super villain, and the final exam is a brutal match to the death! Only one solution: RUN AWAY! Now, super powered teens Molly Hayes, Jubilee, Bucky Barnes, Cloak & Dagger, Amadeus Cho, Skaar and a few new faces are set loose on Battleworld. If they survive the horrors of the Secret Wars, they just might learn a thing or two. Prepare for a new twist on a modern Marvel classic perfect for fans old and new when RUNAWAYS #1 hits comic shops this June!
