    The issue does leave off on a "to be continued" note...but somehow it doesn't bother me that this isn't a one-off "mini-episode" within the series. I enjoyed the #0 issue and enjoyed this, and have absolutely no qualms about the "necessity" of picking up the next issue as well. Read Full Review

    Young Justice continues to find its own path with the first issue as it works to complement the TV series while starting its own arcs. I really liked the zero issue and this one that spends its time filling in the gaps between episodes and various events within them, but I also like that they intend to tell their own stories with the heroes and villains of the world as well. While it could be quite fascinating to watch a more personal and relationship oriented series to work in parallel to the TV show, I like that they're looking to find a balance for it and explore things with Superboy first since he has the most to grapple with when it comes to adjusting to the real world. So far, Young Justice has hit all the right notes for what I want to see out of a series based off of a TV series that's running alongside it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 19, 2011

    There is a bit in this book that plays upon the classic JLA tales from years long past, but as Franco and Baltazar did with "Billy Batson," they're selectively borrowing from the legacy to improve the overall story. It's an interesting bit that has the potential to be exactly what it seems like or to be much deeper. Where this crew takes it from here remains to be seen. In the meantime, for fans of this "Young Justice" cast in need of more from these characters than the weekly fix, this book is a nice supplement. For those that haven't discovered the cartoon, this book is strong enough to be enjoyable all by itself. Read Full Review
