Teaser: Marvel’s RUNAWAYS TV Show from Hulu

So you’re Brian K. Vaughan and you experience that proud moment when you see Marvel and Hulu turn something you created into a TV show.

EDIT: the leaked teaser is un-embed-able or has been removed.

See the tease at Screenrant.com.

Copy from Screenrant.comAs expected with a first teaser, the majority of the footage is used introducing Gregg Sulkin (Chase Stein), Virginia Gardner (Karolina Dean), Rhenzy Feliz (Alex Wilder), Ariela Barer (Gert Yorkes), Lyrica Okano (Nico Minoru), and Allegra Acosta (Molly Hernandez) in their new Marvel roles. Outside of the looks at these characters, the events that unfold follow closely to the start of the 2003 comic run by Brian K. Vaughn and Adrian Alphona. In this arc, the young, soon-to-be heroes stumble upon their parents doing unspeakable acts as The Pride, forcing them to runaway from their homes; hence the team name.

With glimpses of The Pride’s rituals being shown, the power sets of the heroes are also not fully explored here either. There is a glimpse of Karolina’s powers of alien origin, but it is unclear if they will keep that background or find a new way to explain her powers. There also appears to be a shot of Molly’s eyes glowing, possibly indicating the use of her powers, but she will also likely undergo some origin changes as she is a mutant originally in the comics.

Once more of Runways begins filming and Hulu has more content at its disposal, we should be getting a trailer that better showcases the Runaways in action. Fans are anxiously awaiting the Staff of One to manifest out of Nico, see Chase dawn his gloves, and/or have Gert call upon her friendly-but-deadly dinosaur, Old Lace. However, some of those elements may have been too strange for a teaser, so keeping it simple to start could be the better strategy.

Runaways is expected to premiere on Hulu sometime in 2018.

Comic Book Fetish Fave of the Week #4

January 2017 | New Comics Week 4 — Saga #42 (Image Comics)

I cannot honestly remember the last time a comic book made me tearful. The all-black back pages, easily six of them, really helped deliver the gut punch and the kick to the heart. I literally gasped “Really, Brian and Fiona!?!?” BKV may be the best in the biz with his issue-to-issue cliffhangers and even bigger story arc cliffhangers. But he also does not do cheap stunts/deaths/fakeouts. He always delivers on your emotional investment. Knowing that makes this issue burn intensely.

2013 Fetish Favorites: THE PRIVATE EYE — Best Digital Comic Series

“My brothers in comic book worship, I have found the latest scripture & it’s great. This digital tome of graphic literary goodness is worth the $2.99 I PayPal’ed on it.” Brandon Rucker, March 2013

That bit of hyperbole is what I tweeted to my Comics Illuminati brothers after I had read Brian K. Vaughan & Marcos Martin The Private Eye #1, a surprise, bold new digital-only comic featured on their Panel Syndicate website (with impressive color work by Munsta Vicente). In an unprecedented move from established comic book creators, this new digital comic was offered with a “pay what ya want” option. I paid $2.99 for it because that’s what I paid for issues of Mr. Vaughan’s other comic (which I’ll talk about later). The comic was brought to my attention by Warren Ellis via his website, where he noted that Vaughan and Martin suggested $0.99. I still don’t feel like I overpaid (and given that it’s digital, that’s saying a lot).

At any rate, despite my preference for physical versions of my comics, this is a highly enjoyable science fiction series about a private detective uncovering mysteries in a future where identity and privacy don’t mean quite what they used to mean. That severely mucks things up for our erstwhile detective hero. The series is thrilling, insightful, alarming, and socially relevant to things that may someday doom us as a society, if they’re not already starting to (this is not much unlike what Ellis’ Transmetropolitan did for us a decade and a half ago). 

It should also be noted that the comic’s presentation is flawless, giving its landscape orientation, making it formatted the way digital comics should be to fit perfectly on various tablets, executed with seamless page transition.

The Private Eye is projected to be about 10 issues. It’s been successful enough that the creators will certainly reach that goal now. Afterward, one can only hope they team up for yet another ground-breaker.

1st Issue Fetish: The Private Eye – by Vaughan & Martin (Panel Syndicate)

The Private Eye #1
Writer: Brian K. Vaughan
Artist: Marcos Martin
Publisher: Panel Syndicate.com

Last week I told some of my CBLF’s (comic book-loving friends) via Twitter: 
“My brothers in comic book worship, I have found the latest scripture & it’s great. This digital tome of graphic literary goodness is worth the $2.99 I PayPal’ed on it.” 
Sometimes hyperbole, even the metaphorical kind, can be fun. But I meant every word.
