    In many ways, this comic feels like a response to a comic that doesn't exist. Much of this final issue is the characters apologizing for their toxic behavior towards each other in the initial run. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Nov 15, 2022

    Dark Crisis: Young Justice has been a fairly weak series to this point, almost entirely because of Fitzmartins writing. But this issue is almost entirely a storytelling failure as Fitzmartin ignores most of the material she wrote in the previous five issues. Further, despite the series title, Dark Crisis: Young Justice #6 fails to establish any connection to the event its nominally involved in and, thanks to the unsatisfactory resolution, feels like a waste of time.

    Dark Crisis' Young Justice six-issue tie-in lands with a bit of a thud thanks to what feels like incredibly rushed artwork and panel layout. Read Full Review

    Reading and reviewing this book was like watching a slow-motion trainwreck over six months. The best thing in this issue was the preview for Blue Beetle: Graduation Day in the end. Read Full Review

    The artstyle in and of itself is quite good, though it's let down by the incredibly stiff poses the characters are drawn in, the backgrounds suddenly vanishing entirely at points, and some odd expressions in certain panels that make it look laughable.

    As for the writing, it's quite poor with a lack of resolution for several plot points, some rather odd scripting choices that prevent any real tension from being built, and overall being a poorly executed critique of a series that certainly had its issues, but the criticisms that are made feel poorly researched, and not really landing due to relying on faulty information.

    So disapointed since the first issue, writing is a real nonsense and the art is lazy !

    This definitely didn't deserve the Dark Crisis in its title. Like seriously. It had no impact or like any real involvement in that whole story. Why wasn't this just some random comic instead? Not that these characters deserve the treatment they got. I think I've walked away from this comic liking all of them less. These aren't villains. Aren't we supposed to feel good about our heroes? They felt pointless. This whole story felt pointless. I wish they had actually had something relevant to do with the whole Dark Crisis thing but all Fitzmartin did was have them argue with one another until for some reason the boys end up apologizing for bad behavior. I feel like we deserve an apology for all the bad writing that happened here. I guess I wish more

    I'd like to say I feel some level of relief that this series has now met its end, but in all honesty, I'm still left baffled by how such a story was ever allowed to proceed on the course that it did. I was hoping we would get some sort of explanation into why this was worth putting the Dark Crisis title on it, but the fact of that matter remains that this series has absolutely nothing to do with the current Dark Crisis plot. It has offered us nothing of value on that front. There is no reason this should have been put into this lineup. At best, this could have been a one-shot standalone that someone decided to throw out into the universe, but to say this brings anything to the overarching story we're getting with Dark Crisis would be a fl more

    At this point this is not only badly written, but totally disrespectful. There wasn't much respect before this issue, but this one seals the deal on impertinence. There should be negative rating for this awful writer and terrible excuse for a human being. Oh, and the editor needs to pack his stuff and go as far away from comics as possible.

    If I could give this issue a zero I would. Fitzmartin should never be allowed to write a comic book again. This had nothing to do with dark crisis. It was just an excuse to make wonder girl a victim of toxic men and then have said men grovel at her feet. The writer obviously never read the old Young Justice series because Cassie was one of the best characters who was always treated with the utmost respect by Peter David. The editor should be fired as well for allowing this. When did Wonder Girl ever have heat vision anyway?!

    (This should be considered a review of the entire mini-series)

    I see you writing this crap with the team I love
    And I'm like, "Forget you" (ooh, ooh, ooh)
    You tried to blame homophobes and misogyny
    I'm like, "Forget you and DC, too"
    Tried to give you credit, you're still new at it
    Ha, what is this shh?
    (What is this shh?)
    And although there's pain in my chest
    I still wish you the best
    With a "Forget you" (ooh, ooh, ooh)

    Where do I start
    The way you write Tim, Kon, & Bart
    It's clear you didn't do any research
    Made Cassie a pain, you write Tim not Bi but Gay
    And Cissie's a "See You Next Tuesday"

    I pity the fool that falls that thinks this book is more
