The Runaways may be prisoner in their own headquarters, but that doesn’t mean they can’t celebrate the holiday in style. After Nico renegotiated the terms of her magic with The One, Karolina has some questions in Runaways #16 — but Nico isn’t talking, and everyone else is too excited about presents to notice the change.
Marvel provided The Beat with an exclusive preview of the first five pages of the new issue, on sale Dec. 19. Take a look at the preview below and be sure to pick up a copy of Runaways #16 at your local comic shop on Wednesday.
