    A great part of David Laphams art is the Wheres Waldo of music. Appearing on T-Shirts, signs, and part of plots, Lapham scatters little musical tidbits throughout the issues. Appearing this issue are, and Im probably missing some, Ted Leo (who is apparently God), Lou Reeds album Transformer, and folk-punk pioneers Violent Femmes. Lapham is increasing my music while providing an action-packed, adrenaline filled adventure contemporary recreation of Jack Kerouacs On the Road. The art works for Laphams story, being high energy when needed and focusing on the expressions from characters in the slower scenes. Danny looks subtlety older in this issue from the origin issue, noticeably different in appearance without a dramatic change, the same is achieved with Sadie. Laphams art coincides with the tone he is trying to achieve. Read Full Review

    The story itself is nearly as manic as Sadie, and it begins to suffer as well. I'm not particularly enjoying the constant skips in chronology. I'm still not entirely sure why the gang is being hunted down by colorful assassins sporting bad Austrian accents. The series sports all sorts of outlandish qualities without ever quite justifying them. Most of the time I'm too enthralled to care. Not always, though. I'm hoping that Lapham merely needs another couple issues to allow everything to fall into place. If the series continues to be as haphazard, there could be a day in the future where I'm forced to dump the book just like Danny should dump Sadie. Let's hope Young Liars and I don't have to go through a nasty breakup. Read Full Review
