Here’s an interesting glitch: one of my regular readers sent an e-mail asking if I knew what was up with the loose arrow on the cover of this week’s Runaways #21 (visible on the truck’s grill):

It does seem a little out of place, and my initial thought was that it was a computer mouse arrow, accidentally captured in the image somehow. But, closer inspection reveals that it’s actually the arrow from the top of the “R” in the logo:

This is going to be the best-selling issue of any Marvel Adventures title ever.
