Comic News:
Marvel Previews Runaways
By Brian Jacks

02.21.03


Since April's wave of Marvel Tsunami launches were first announced, perhaps the title readers have most requested more information about is writer Brian K. Vaughan and penciler Adrian Alphona's new ongoing series Runaways. Now, on Day 4 of Marvel's Tsunami DotComic week, readers and retailers can get an extensive first look at the monthly series in a special 13-page preview of Runaways #1.

An action/adventure series in the tradition of Smallville and Harry Potter, Runaways invites readers of all ages to meet six young friends, all living perfectly typical teenage lives until together they discover their parents share a deep dark secret - they're actually supervillains.

"At one time in their lives all kids think they're parents are evil," explained Vaughan, "but what if you found yours really were?"

"Hopefully, this dotComic will capture the feel of our series, a story about powerless kids living in a world of powerful adults ... and I'm not just talking about the classic Marvel superheroes we see on the first page," continued Vaughan. "Artist Adrian Alphona and I wanted to do a different kind of 'young hero' comic, a book where the protagonists aren't defined by costumes or codenames. They're real people with real dreams and real problems."

The Runaways 13-page preview can be read right now at http://dotcomics.marvel.com/lib/launchissue.php?issue=154&wsid=. RUNAWAYS #1 goes on sale 4/16.

Marvel notes that readers should look for a new April Tsunami dotComic preview every day this week.
