    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 25, 2013

    Despite taking a somewhat jarring turn from the team-centric central narrative, Young Avengers #10 is a truly excellent read. By building up the relationships and the back stories of the characters involved, Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Mike Norton really give this team some extra heft - even if they don't all appear in this comic. With some smart dialogue and some pitch-perfect plotting, this book is well worth a read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Sep 30, 2013

    Gillen, McKelvie and Norton have struck gold with this issue. Aside from a few discrepancies, "Young Avengers" sets a new bar for comic book writing with its smart storytelling and profound art. If you didn't care for the issue, I'd keep it to yourself; after all, Loki's watching. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - MikeFitz538 Sep 28, 2013

    This book has been fantastic since it's first issue. It's picked up flawlessly from the first two volumes of Young Avengers but taken it in a completely different way. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Sep 26, 2013

    The issue doesn't do much to push the sluggish pace of the series, but its revelations are quite tasty, promising much more activity to come. Kudos also to the art team, who continue to provide as close to ideal comic book art as possible. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Sep 26, 2013

    This is a great start of a new story arc because the book gained that sense of humor which was lost some time ago. That was what really made this one of the more entertaining books to read. And for once it didn't rely on just Loki to accomplish this. Mother you find so much more interesting now that you know why she is after Billy and how she and Loki were apparently connected. More so in the very beginning when you see how that random person was spying on her and her reaction to it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Sep 25, 2013

    The series has dove head first into crazy town, ultimately that is something that the comics press should be celebrating. This series has some massive guts that is moving the industry forward, even if my gripes with the actual plot are valid. This book is recommended towards everyone, because those who do not like the story can enjoy the fine art and technical ability of the collaborators behind the scenes. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Sep 25, 2013

    While important events do occur in Young Avengers #10, the issue feels a bit like a bridge between #9 and whatever the team has in store for us in #11. The book is an elaborate setting of the stage, which doesn't make it the most exciting addition to the series, even if it does feel like a necessary one. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Rainbow Red Panda Sep 27, 2013

    The artwork is always one of the best parts of this comic in my opinion. The colors are the perfect balance of dark and bright, which is good for a comic about young people. And the artwork itself is relaxed but still had the edge it's grown up avengers titles has. This is the perfect comic for someone just getting into marvel and/or wants to learn about the Avengers without being thrown into the craziness of all the main titles. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Connor Relyea Sep 27, 2013

    While this wasn't the most exciting book of the arc, it still did a good job in giving a behind-the-scenes look at the story. Gillen is gearing up for some exciting things to happen in the next few issues, I can feel it. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Sep 29, 2013

    It seems more and more likely that Young Avengers is going to end with issue #15, and whilst that is going to be a sad and depressing time, we still have 5 more issues left of this excellence to enjoy. The care that goes into crafting this series is always evident, and it just goes to show what can happen when a creative team takes a less than usual approach to superhero comics. This series is pushing boundaries in the same way that books like Hawkeye and Superior Foes of Spider-Man are doing, and that, combined with the fact that it is highly enjoyable to read, makes it a must-buy every month.
