New digest – retail 7.99 – vol.5 Escape to New York (Digest; 7-12; w Brian K. Vaughan; a Adrian Alphona, Takeshi Miyazawa). [From Marvel Comics: The team’s lineup changes forever in the perfect jumping-on point for the series that Wizard said “could be the most original book to focus on teenaged super heroes since Spider-Man debuted all the way back in 1962!” When a dangerous alien invades Los Angeles, the Runaways’ own Karolina Dean may be the only hero in the Marvel Universe who can stop him… but at what cost? Plus: The Runaways embark on a coast-to-coast adventure, guest-starring Cloak and Dagger AND the New Avengers! When Cloak is accused of a crime he didn’t commit by the heroes of New York City, the vigilante is forced to turn to the teenage Runaways for help. This story will take our teens to a place they’ve never been: NYC!] Book of the Week 3/22/06: It’s a little early for my annual Runaways selection, but hey, it’s another slow week, and Seven Soldiers was just BotW a little while ago. This is another fine outing, with two stories: a two-parter in which one of the Runaways finds an interstellar destiny, and a four-parter when the team goes to New York to help Cloak (of And Dagger fame) clear his name, with the New Avengers getting on his case. The battle between Wolverine and Molly alone is worth the price of admission.
