As the events in Browning count down to their inevitable conclusion, Loreli must come to terms with the fact that she is not the only love in Danny's life. The plans to stop the alien invasion expand (if there even are aliens), Sadie Dawkins records a hit record, and Big C returns to set Danny straight and possibly destroy the known universe.

    That's that then. The show is over. The show must go on. "The Death of Good" indeed. Read Full Review

    And it does stop. Issues could exist after, no doubt at all about that. But they dont and things stop. In fact, the scene of Danny/ Johnny waking up and putting on clown make-up makes the whole thing open to a new story or lie. Sadie, the early protagonist, comes back in Loreleis body, triumphantly but offering nothing but violence and laughs. Really nothing is solved and there are certainly parts missing. The single page panel with the words I have never lied to you offers little insight. The story never concludes, the bomb threat is never resolved. Did they succeed, did it ever exist? The spider on the pillow at the end offers only a little insight. All in all, Young Liars has been a trip and leaves readers with the same feeling as after every issue, except there is no what happens next. Lapham created something which demanded attention, rereading and engagement. So now that we have the whole thing, I think its time to find some truths. Read Full Review
