Before I start talking shit about Marvel... Sanford Greene + Runaways = Forgiveness Unlocked

 I'm so easy... Somebody hit Marvel on the head with a rock or something and now they are hiring all my favorite people to make their books. To my point, Sanford Greene is drawing the secret war-world reboot of  Runaways...
Here's the sales pitch:
They are the brightest teens, brought together from all corners of Battleworld to attend the prestigious Doom Institute in the planet’s capital. But this June, they’re going to become…Runaways! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at RUNAWAYS #1, as the cult-favorite hit comes to Secret Wars courtesy of rising comic stars Noelle Stevenson (NIMONA, Lumberjanes) and Sanford Greene (Uncanny Avengers)! Classes, exams, detention. Seems like a normal school, right? Except your headmaster is actually a diabolical super villain, and the final exam is a brutal match to the death! Only one solution: RUN AWAY! Now, super powered teens Molly Hayes, Jubilee, Bucky Barnes, Cloak & Dagger, Amadeus Cho, Skaar and a few new faces are set loose on Battleworld. If they survive the horrors of the Secret Wars, they just might learn a thing or two. Prepare for a new twist on a modern Marvel classic perfect for fans old and new when RUNAWAYS #1 hits comic shops this June!


I just can't stay mad at you, Marvel... You're like a puppy that pees on my shoes, but then makes that damn puppy face at me before I can rain down any red-hot discipline on your furry soul. In this case, the puppy face is a mix of Sanford Greene, an ensemble cast of my favorite teenage heroes, and the words "prestigious Doom Institute"...
Shit talk about canceling books I like in favor of company-wide-crossover-event averted.
 
But seriously, would I prefer to see Greene top the charts on his dystopian hip hop nightmare Rotten Apple? Of course I would, but if Greene has to achieve star status via a bunch of mainstream books before you guys will buy his creator owned stuff... so be it. My patience is legendary.
Anyways,  Runaways #1 comes out in stores June 17th.
