I decided to read #1 of Mystic Arcana in order to continue following the Runways and their characters. In this case it’s just Nico Minoru. This little adventure occurs after the events in volume 8: Dead End Kids.

Nico is seen trying to sort through things a bit – listening to a priest/counselor’s advice and so on. This is mildly confusing, as it appears that Nico is with a different group of people and friends – but I have to ask, with what time? The team is constantly on the run, so they don’t exactly have time to stop and split up for a bit. The only time they do so is Captain America catches up with them and put them in foster homes -an event that occurs well before this. So the timeline is a little messed up and confusing here.

If one can get past those inconsistencies the plot itself is somewhat interesting. I won’t give it all away, but Nico is forced to deal with somebody from her parents past. Being only one issue long, the intro and resolution come up relatively quickly. So there’s minimal buildup and no time wasted on getting to the conclusion.

I wish I could better understand how this one fit into the rest of the Runaways plot, time-wise if nothing else. Anybody have any ideas or comments?


About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
