Review: Runaways: Rock Zombies

And Terry Moore continues to be a massive disappointment to me.  He is one of the all time greats of the indie-comics community, and the character-centric Runaways seems like it ought to be the perfect mainstream book for him.  But instead of playing to the book’s strengths he comes up with a corny story about plastic surgery based zombies.  

The only saving grace of this book is the last issue, which features two done in one stories that are vastly superior.  Chris Yost and Sara Pichelli tell an incredibly charming Molly Hayes/Wolverine team-up, that I think is the best work yet from the very prolific Yost.  The second half of the issue has the older cast members playing truth or dare in a story from James Asmus and Emma Rios.  There’s not much of a story to it, but it is exactly the sort tale that these characters should be used for.

But 1 out of 4 issues is hardly enough reason to buy the trade.  Fortunately Moore’s run is over with this book so I can hope for things to improve.
