Runaways, Vol. 3: The Good Die Young

Runaways, Vol. 3: The Good Die Young - Adrian Alphona, Brian K. Vaughan

'The Runaways' follows a group of teens and tweens who have known each other all their lives. Their parents were friends and for the most part they merely tolerated the annual get-togethers of their families. That is until they discovered their parents' secret identities as "The Pride", a super-powered criminal organization that all-but-rules Los Angeles.

In the first two volumes, the kids escape from their parents and discover their inheritance: one way or another, each one of them has skills, powers and access to materials that allow them to be as powerful as their parents.

'The Good Die Young' picks up as the team try to regroup after a failed attack on their parents, and on the news that one of them has been informing their parents of their whereabouts and plans. I've rated this one a little higher than previous issues, simply because I appreciated how it wrapped up many of the questions I had when I started the series. There is a significant amount of closure. I've heard there's a television show in the works, I look forward to it.
