In an ongoing attempt to draw more readers to online versions of comic books, Marvel is allowing anyone to head over to Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited and read Terry Moore and Humberto Ramos’ first issue of the Runaways for free.

The Runaways are back in Los Angeles and trying to keep their status on the down-low, but L.A. isn’t the same city they left it, especially when the sins of their parents come back to haunt them.  And if things couldn’t be more dangerous, the few remaining survivors of Karolina’s alien race have come to Earth…and they’re targeting the Runaways themselves for extinction.

You can view the first issue for free right here.

And take the jump to get a peek at the cover to issue #2 arriving this month.

RUNAWAYS #2 (JUL082338)

    Hmm. I wonder why they’re really offering it for free? Could it be that because of the poor editorial management of this title by Quesada, no one is even interested in it any more?

    I wouldn’t call it poor editorial management. I’d call believing in a title that has yet to maintain its audience and trying to get people interested in the series anyway they can. That’s really why Joss Whedon wrote an arc (too bad it didn’t seem to work because Joss couldn’t get the work done on a monthly basis).

    Read teh first issue for free online and maybe its piqued your interest enough toactually go and buy the ongoing. It’s actually decent marketing in the digital age.
