I must have been sleeping at the news of a live action series focused on the Marvel Comics characters known as The Runaways and while I remember owning a few of the original issues way back when they first appeared, I didn’t keep up with it at all. The show will be a Hulu Original program and you can check out the teaser trailer below. I’ll come back afterwards with some editorial notions.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that this does look interesting but its on Hulu and I don’t have a subscription. I know what you are saying, “well why not get a subscription” and the answer is simply because my cable bill is already too high and I have a monthly Netflix subscription that I maintain for my household. Hopefully I’ll be able to see this eventually because as some fans might know, the comic series has returned and there has been significant buzz about it. I snagged the first issue but still have to read it.
