Marvel has announced that writer Rainbow Rowell and artist Andrés Genolet will usher Runaways into the Century Club this August with a giant-sized issue – the 28th of the current run – which promises to deliver “big character redefining moments as this team of Marvel misfits embark on an exciting new era.”
“Bringing Runaways back was a dream come true for me,” said Rowell. “These kids are my favorite Marvel characters, and I felt like there were so many great stories we could tell with them. We’d have conversations when we were planning like, ‘What can we do in six issues? What could we do in twelve? Could we get to eighteen? That would be amazing!’”
“It’s thrilling to be looking back now at 38 issues, and to see how each of the characters have grown,” Rowell continued. “And it’s such an honor to be part of the team that reached this milestone with them. Everyone who worked on this book cared so much about the characters and the story we were telling. I knew when I signed on that I loved the Runaways, but I never thought I’d get this lucky with my collaborators. It’s been a complete pleasure.”
“This volume of Runaways is a high-water mark in my long time at Marvel,” stated editor Nick Lowe. “This book and characters are incredible and it’s never too late to run away with us!”
Runaways #38 will go on sale on August 11th.
