    As a fan of Peter David's original Young Justice series, I am loving this return of the team. Fitzmartin and Braga are doing a fine job of tapping the nostalgia for that series, while still creating a new story of their own. I am hoping that this series is leading to a new Young Justice title. Hopefully DC has plans for Young Justice once the dust settles from Dark Crisis. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Aug 17, 2022

    Dark Crisis: Young Justice #3 is the weakest issue of the series so far. Given where the story is at the end of the second issue, there is relatively little advancement until the final pages. The opening of the issue touches on intriguing themes of wish fulfillment and catharsis but devolves in quality quickly. Bart is the only character keeping up with the changing circumstances, and while Connors reluctance to face the nature of the situation is understandable, Tim feels a step behind for much of the issue because of his refusal to listen to Bart and failure to empathize with Connor. He feels a few steps behind what we know despite how obvious it is that they are being manipulated, and that creates a frustrating experience. Fortunately the mystery of what is happening to the trio remains intriguing, making up for the at times uneven character portrayals, and the art contributes to the strong Bart and Connor portrayals.

    It's still unclear if this is directly connected to what's happening with the Justice League over in the central Dark Crisis series, but at least there's some forward momentum. Read Full Review

    I came out of comic reviewing retirement for this book; that's how much I love the team of Young Justice. Halfway through, I'm not entirely convinced I'll review all 6 issues; that's how bad the story and characterization have been. If you're a fan of Young Justice, don't bother reading this book.

    Batman-News - William Martin Aug 17, 2022

    Last month, I recommended against reading on and that still holds true. This isn't a good comic and I don't see that changing. Despite the writing being slightly less offensive this time out, the suffering artwork takes away the primary thing Dark Crisis: Young Justice had going for it. If you are just reading this to complete the event, let me just remind you: events are expensive. Don't spend more than you have to. This tie-in is wholly inessential. It does nothing to support the event and, in fact, actively works against it. I've honestly been loving all the other tie-ins so do yourself a favor, skip this one, and put your money toward the rest. Read Full Review
