It's Christmastime for the Runaways in next week's Runaway's #16, but nobody feels like celebrating. First of all, they're trapped in their house being guarded by a representative of the children of the Giborrim, who want to collect on the debts of the Runaways' parents, The Pride. Thankfully, Nico has recently made a pact with the imprisoned sorcerer that takes the form of her magical staff, meaning she no longer has to give her blood to get the staff to appear, just give up a little bit of her soul… wait, did we say "thankfully?"
In any case, Nico uses the staff to put up some festive decorations, but would Christmas really be complete without a visit from Victor's friend, Doombot? Of course not!
And it's a good thing they decided to let him in, because he's come bearing what we can only assume is a very delicious family recipe…
Is there anything better than a good holiday issue?
Runaways #16 hits stores next Wednesday.

• Christmas comes to the hostel!
• Even when trapped in their HQ, the Runaways are going to find a way to have a great December.
• But a returned Runaway (well, and the certain destruction of Earth) could ruin everything.
