    Nerds On The Rocks - MikeFitz538 Dec 9, 2013

    This is a great end to Gillen & McKelvie's run on the this book, tying up almost all the loose ends (except for Speed and the Patriot-ghost-thing) and ties it in heavily with Gillen's previous run on Journey into Mystery. We get a break-up of Hawkeye and Marvel Boy, a getting back together of Wiccan & Hulkling, We also get nice moments for Prodigy and Miss America as well as Loki's secret now semi-public knowledge. We also get to see Billy really truly take after his mother, which should have pretty interesting implications for the future. And while I'm sad to see this run end, I'm even sadder that Marvel can't seem to get a team to take up the reigns after they are done. Read Full Review

    This issue is where such timely life revelations happen. Noh-Varr comes to an important conclusion regarding his relationship with Kate, just as Teddy and Billy meet at a crossroads in theirs.A slightly more grown-up Loki (complete with 90's boy band hair) has an awakening of his own that's appropriately externalized. Young Avengers, as a series, has always been about the struggle for identity, and as Wiccan flits across a dazzling array of panels, we see that our past may shape us, but it doesn't have to define us.

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Dec 6, 2013

    In any other case, I'd say I was surprised by how "Young Avengers" #13 completely stuck the landing but with the talent and passion Gillen and McKelvie have it's really not a shock. Gieron brings most of the threads from his run (not just on "YA" but "Journey Into Mystery" too) together in an engaging climax that'll satisfy everyone from hardcore Marvel fans, shippers, and those who just love to watch Loki suffer.

    Newsarama - Lindsey Morris Dec 5, 2013

    The world is safe (for now) as the 2013 run of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's Young Avengers comes to a close. Brimming with confessions, ass-kicking and romance, this issue boasts some the best writing of the series, as well as the most breath-taking panel layouts and beautiful art we've seen so far Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jay Mattson Dec 9, 2013

    Young Avengers #13 is a very good comic book. It combines the best of what makes the Young Avengers so entertaining with Gillen and McKelvie's penchant for minimalist teenage drama that makes the reader think more than just follow. That being said, it's not for everyone and if you've had trouble wrapping your head around the duos take on the Young Avengers in the past, this issue will seem like a quagmire of emotions, metaphorical revelations, and hurried conclusions.

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Dec 12, 2013

    I'm not going to go on much longer. You've definitely heard it all before. Young Avengers is exceptional storytelling, comics at its finest, and you're missing out if you're not reading it. If you've not listened to me yet, you're probably not going to listen to me now, and shame on you for that. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Connor Relyea Dec 5, 2013

    This has been a truly great run ofYoung Avengers and I have few qualms with the story. I am looking for closure on Tommy and Patriot, however, so hopefully we'll see that in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Dec 9, 2013

    In short, this issue somehow manages to raise the already high bar for this series. When it matters, the "Young Avengers" are too smart to be subtle and too earnest to be ironic, yet they still pull off the self-awareness and sly charm of both. It's a tough tightrope to walk, but the creative team captures this tone again and again. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 8, 2013

    Highly ambitious, but ultimately small in scope. Despite the universal threats involved, the story easily reduces to the conflicts of a few select characters, undermining any sense of teamwork from the title. Read Full Review
