*in my Diddy voice* I thought I told you that we won’t stop! Just because February is over and done with, it doesn’t mean that BlackComicsMonth is over. #BlackComicsMonth is still in effect and will be more than likely ending Neveruary 35th. See what I did there?
BlackComicsMonth.com will be updated at least twice a month (so far) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We’ll be bringing you interviews along with previews and reviews of comics. So without further ado, let’s take a look at yesterday’s Marvel’s Secret Wars Runaways announcement. Runaways features the writings of a talented woman by the name of Noelle Stevenson and also talented artist, Sanford Greene. I just love diversity!
This June, a cult-favorite comes to Battleworld in RUNAWAYS #1 – a brand new Secret Wars series! Rising comic stars Noelle Stevenson (NIMONA, Lumberjanes) and Sanford Greene (Uncanny Avengers) bring you a new twist on a modern Marvel classic that’s sure to appeal to Runaways fans old and new!
The best and brightest teens from all corners of Battleworld are hand-picked to attend the most prestigious academy on the planet’s capital. Yet not all is as it seems within these hallowed halls. This esteemed educational establishment may just be grooming the next generation of super villains!
What happens when the new class learns they’re on the fast track to evil and their headmaster is a diabolical super villain? RUN AWAY!
Now, teenagers Molly Hayes, Jubilee, Bucky Barnes, Cloak & Dagger, Amadeus Cho, Skaar and a few new faces are striking out on their own — taking on Battleworld, learning to deal with each other, and learning to deal with themselves. Enter the world of a Secret Wars story unlike any other when Stevenson and Greene bring you a new spin on the Runaways this June in RUNAWAYS #1!
