IGN informa que Brian K. Vaughan ha anuciado que el número 24 de Runaways será el último que escriba. Además, no se va solo, ya que Adrian Alphona también deja la serie. En sus palabras:
After working together on the series for more than four years, Adrian Alphona and I will be leaving Runaways with Issue #24.
And no, this is absolutely not because of creative differences. I love editor Nick Lowe like a kid brother, and Joe Quesada and everyone at Marvel have obviously been nothing short of insanely supportive of our little book since the first page of the first issue.
This was entirely my idea. While Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina have planned endings, I've always said that I hoped Runaways would last forever, long after I left the series. I never wanted Runaways to become a vanity book that was dependent on its original creators' involvement; I wanted our kids to be able to eventually run away from us, and find new life apart from their "parents."
I love these characters more than you can possibly imagine, and I swear I wouldn't abandon them unless I knew for a fact that they were going to end up with the very best creative team possible. Marvel will be announcing that new team in about a week, and to say that you guys will be thrilled is probably an understatement.
As for Adrian and me, we've already started talking about possible new projects to work on together. I'd really like to take time to give birth to a few more creator-owned books, and I hope you Runners will follow us wherever we end up next.
No one thought Runaways would last six months, but after nearly forty issues and a few Eisner nominations, our sales are still going up (especially with the digest collections in bookstores), making our series one of the most successful comics starring all-new characters to be launched by any major company in recent memory. I'm extremely proud of the entire Runaways team, some of whom will definitely be sticking with our kids, and I'm so grateful to all the undyingly loyal readers out there, the best group of friends a comic book could hope for.
Una lástima, ya que formaban una de las parejas más interesantes de Marvel, sin duda, Runaways ha sido una de las más agradables sorpresas de los últimos meses. No es la mejor serie de todos los tiempos pero resulta entretenida y "refrescante" entre tanto super-drama y el "universo no volverá a ser el mismo".
