I read the first volume of Runaways and only read Avengers Academy tie-ins to the few major events that were going on throughout its respective run. For me, Avengers Arena is fresh and the fact that I am not as familiar with the cast of characters doesn't have me as emotionally attached as some of these readers. And it's not like Arcade is killing off MAJOR characters. Some of the comments I have read on the reviews for the book have been unfair and lazy. The reason I say lazy is because a lot of cats that comment on review posts don't even read the book.
This book is pretty much everything that's wrong with comics.
This is the weaksauce I am talking about. No class. I seriously doubt this title is everything that is wrong in comics. If ANYONE thinks these deaths are permanent: read more comics and stop basing opinions off of shoddy reviews(no offense).
I love comics.
