Young Justice against the world! The fake reality that Superboy, Impulse, and Robin are trapped in has completely turned against them, sending the full force of the JLA and the Titans they grew up with against them. It will take all of their combined might to fight through this onslaught and find out who is responsible for their imprisonment. Meanwhile, Wonder Girl, Arrowette, and Red Tornado head to San Francisco's Titans Island in search of assistance, but all they find are bad memories.

    Dark Crisis: Young Justice #4 is a further drop in quality for the series. Baragas art remains consistently strong, and the traumatic events Fitzmartin is grounding the story in are ripe for exploration. But where Fitzmartin has interrogated these issues in a meaningful way with Cassie and Cissie, the quality with which she has handled the other characters both in overall story and in dialogue has dropped with each issue. In this issue specifically it may have been a mistake to attempt to hash out these deeply emotional issues in the middle of a fight. Read Full Review

    This is a much-needed follow-up for the characters, but I'm hoping they can grow from it and spin out into a regular series. Read Full Review

    Both introspective and fun; this issue's the best of both worlds. Read Full Review

    Jury is out on how well this will all tie back into the event, but if nothing else at least it's trying to say something about fan culture. Read Full Review

    Instead of trying to destroy the legacy of the original Peter David run and showcasing it as something the heroes need to reject and destroy, this series should've been a celebration of our core team. Then it should've found a way to push these beloved characters forward in a way that excites fans as DC enters the “Dawn of a New Era” phase. Instead, we're getting a book desperate to tell readers that this team remains directionless - and that is depressing AF. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - William Martin Sep 20, 2022

    This comic is utterly worthless. Initially, it had the art going for it. Now that's gone. The writing was at least mildly intriguing in the first issue but it sunk with part two. This issue spends most of its time on an incompetent fight, taking away any chance it had for interesting developments. This is, indeed, a comic that exists. Read Full Review
