As the Young Allies are well aware, when the Bastards of Evil strike, they strike hard! Separated, scrambling, and with lives on the line, can the Young Allies pull together fast enough to survive? Rated T …$2.99
With a little bit of direction and focus, this issue could've easily jumped into the Must Read range. The character work from McKeever continues to be topnotch and the action was satisfying. When you add in a strong, but someone shifty effort from Baldeon, Young Allies continues to be one of the best books you probably aren't reading. Read Full Review
Baldeon, Bowling, and Sotomayor enrich the enjoyment of Young Allies. Baldeon nuances nerve to Nomad's expression as she hurls battle discs with the aplomb of a born shield-slinger. He and Sotomayor embody Firestar with enormous power. The entire art team clean up Gravity and grant him efficacy in battle. They make El Toro Muy Bueno. Aftershock's bane is predictable, but Baldeon beefs up the scene with expert comedic timing that's facilitated by Bowling's shadows followed by Sotomayor's electric blues. Young Allies is simple yet superb super heroics at its best. Read Full Review
"Young Allies" has a lot of potential, but it's just not there yet. This issue is so focused on the Bastards of Evil that the book's stars get lost a little in the shuffle. What the book lacks is a clear purpose and identity, especially given the other young heroes team books Marvel is putting out right now. Read Full Review
