The Runaways

Post by MKComics »

Newbie here.

I just noticed a movie on Sky called The Runaways about 3 children on a journey to find their mother.

I might be wrong on this, but does anyone remember an action story in Buster comic in the 1970's very similar to this also called The Runaways.

It sounds too close to be a coincidence.

Yes, you probably refer to a strip written by Scott Goodall and drawned by Joe Colquhoun, concerning the two Robinson's children (Ben and his sister Debbie) trying to stay together, since their parents were accidentally killed in an air-crash and local authorities insisted on separating them, in different new families... I used to read all this touching artwork (under the Greek title "Οι Φυγάδες", meaning the original title) in famous Greek magazine titled "Blek". Great story!!!

Thanks for replying.

Ah, so my memory's a bit hazy on the details, lol.

I enjoyed reading this story too, especially the cliffhangers each week.
