While fans wait to see more from the upcoming Hulu Runaways series, they are about to get a chance to see the gifted teens on the run in comic book form once again.
Marvel released what is likely the first of many teasers that herald a return of a Runaways comic book series later this year. This first image focuses on the magician and leader of the group, Nico Minoru otherwise known as Sister Grimm.
There is no other information, like a creative team or when or what the book will be, but that is likely to either come once all the teasers are out or will come later this year. Most likely the title will make it’s debut during the big relaunch/renumbering that is set to come with this fall’s Legacy initiative.
Created in 2003 by Brian K. Vaughn & Adrian Alphona, Runaways followed six teenagers who found out that their parents were secretly the supervillain group known as The Pride who controlled all the crime on the West Coast. Rebelling against their murderous & evil parents, the teens went on the run and some of them discovered they had special abilities gained through mutant powers, magical items, technology, and even alien genetics that they used to fight against their parents and others.
Various other creators took over the title after Vaughn and Alphona left, but there hasn’t been a regular Ruanways title since the third volume of the series ended in 2009 but the characters appeared in other books over the years. The series was briefly resurrected, featuring different characters, as one of the alternate universe series during 2015’s Secret Wars event.
