It's an epic Wonder Comics crossover: Naomi, the Wonder Twins, and Young Justice all come together for the first time to confront the secrets behind the entire first year of the teen team's series. Where did Connor Kent come from? Why does Bart Allen remember everyone but no one else does? How does it all connect to Jinny Hex's trunk? It's a Wonder Comics blockbuster!

    So I really enjoyed this issue, even if you need a scorecard to keep everyone straight. It's fun! Read Full Review

    It is worth noting that Robin has chosen a new name… by stealing the codename of an evil version of himself from an alternate reality? I'll be curious to see if “Drake” will last (or if the various teen heroes decide to make a running joke out of such a bizarre choice). Whatever he chooses to call himself, it looks like Tim Drake has himself a team to investigate S.T.A.R. Labs and what happened to his best friend. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The main pattern of this series continues in Young Justice #12 " characters are great, pacing is a mess. Read Full Review

    This is the sort of superhero series that's simply enjoyable to occupy and it occupies its space quite well in this issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 15, 2020

    It's a Bendis book, so extended conversations are expected, but this issue is nothing but, and no one really gets their moment to shine. The art is a lot of fun, though. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jan 8, 2020

    There's a lot going on in Young Justice this month. The issue isn't bad, in fact it's often funny and has some great character moments. It's simply bogged down by too many characters who sound the same and don't have strong reasons for being there. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 8, 2020

    If you enjoy great art,  you'll get that here but really that's about all you get because nothing happens in this issue beyond adding characters to a title where the main cast of heroes still haven't been explained or explored, not to mention the person they're going after has already been outed as a bad guy in the Superman book months ago.  There's really nothing here worthwhile and I'm so sad that this book is so bad because I desperately wanted to be a fan of Young Justice again.

    Its a new year but Bendis is still up to his bad tricks making Young Justice #12 one of the more disappointing titles as 2020 rolls out. Read Full Review

    Young Justice #12 is an example of what happens a busy book has no solid structure to support its plot threads. Read Full Review

    Oh my goodness please stop bringing mediocre teens into this already extremely subpar comic, I don’t think I can handle any more talking.

    It's the crossover that signals the end of Year One of Wonder Comics. Hopefully Bendis doesn't screw things up but I don't know why I have hope.

    The Good:
    Wonder Comics?

    Oh and the art was good.

    The Bendis:

    Continuity is off.

    Just a bunch of talking. A lot. Like a whole lot.

    Things just feel convenient for convenience sake.

    What was meant to be a big moment was more of a splat.

    Wow, this sucked big time. 0.5 for the art but man, there is so little to actually like here.

    Too many characters piling into the story and not enough story. This issue was just boring. I'm starting to like Tim's costume. It's growing on me. Still hate that he is calling himself Drake now. I just can't get behind him calling himself Duck basically. Because that is what a Drake is. A male Duck. I keep saying I'm going to stop getting this series but I keep getting just one more issue hoping it will turn into something worth reading and that Tim will get a better name. No luck on either front there. I think I'll stop getting them here and stick to that decision this time. It's just throwing good money away.

    One good think about the comic. I like the art.

    Wow, this is the last new comic I'll read this week and it's also the worst. There's just so much talking in this issue, and it's mostly unnecessary. And it's so Bendis. Annoyingly so. This is just a jumbled mess of disinteresting garbage. To add insult to injury, Miguel becomes Spider-Man at the end, like Bendis can't help but go back to his old tricks... literally. He should realize that he fucked up both of the Spider-Men he's known for, and that the past should stay in the past, especially when you work for the other company now. But what am I even saying? I gave this issue, and that moment, more thought than Bendis did.

    This is why people hate Bendis! Instead of ever giving a solid story or answers as to why the characters that people love are even together, the book becomes a vehicle to push his Wonder Comics line. If readers wanted the Wonder Twins or Dial H, their solo books would not be on the bottom of the DC sales charts! Naomi is popular enough, but I'm guessing fans of the character would rather get Season Two of her solo book (and possibly some character progression) than appearances in every Bendis book that always end up being a recap of her 2 days (?!?!) since getting her still up in the air powers! Bendis speak os in full effect here and it appears he is setting up a fight between the Legion book as to which can jam the most characters and more
