    Highly recommended! (And needless tosay, I'd love to see Grell return with a new series or mini-series dedicated to his most famous DC creation!) Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 5, 2020

    After a year of stories and the addition of a new cowriter in David Walker, Young Justice #13 feels like it finally achieves its goal and becomes the definitive teen hero book in the DCU. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 5, 2020

    I am officially back on the Young Justice bandwagon with issue #13. This was a really fun read and a start to a new and interesting story arc. The story and plot felt a little more "centered" and little slower paced which helped out a lot. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 5, 2020

    This was an improvement over previous issues the Walker impact? but both writers will need to streamline the team, which has expanded into a virtual present day Legion of Super Heroes with little of the character investment. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Feb 11, 2020

    Young Justice #13 is at once threadbare and a hodgepodge storywise, especially considering it's ostensibly the start of a new story. Events just kind of happen without much in the way of explanation, and the group scenes of the team feel padded out. A trio of talented artists brings their own individual strengths to the issue artistically, but overall, this issue feels like a morass of...something... in search of a plot. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 13, 2020

    The rest of Young Justice, and their new friends, get far less time than Superboy but there is enough here for the group to finally jump into action on multiple fronts (including looking for reinforcements in characters known for their involvement in other incarnations of the team). For fans. Read Full Review

    Young Justice #13 is a tremendously fun comic to read, almost so much fun that you won't notice the plot barely inches forward. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Clark Feb 5, 2020

    While the story and writing continues to be great and really driving the comic forward, Young Justice #13 suffers from a mix match of art. Now, I've dealt with inconsistent artists (I'm looking at you Suicide Squad), but I don't think it's ever been as different in one comic as this one. I mean, we go from early 00's Cartoon Network to 90's comic and back again. It was just a very jarring visual experience. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Feb 5, 2020

    The time spent focusing on Conner and Warlord this issue was time well spent. Their interactions were a lot of fun, and really highlighted some of the struggles Conner's been going through in this series. Unfortunately, the other half of the issue was less successful and felt bogged down by a lack of forward momentum and too many characters with not enough to do. It does seem like the stage might finally be set for things to move forward, so hopefully we'll see that traction next issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 5, 2020

    I don't know if I'm a sucker for thinking that we'll eventually get something of substance out of this book because each month I go in and think that maybe, maybe this is the time that we'll have some answers to something that would make this book make sense, but like usual, this issue is just filler, that essentially just rehashes last issue, gives a origin for Warlord and ends in a should be "wow" moment, that doesn't make any sense.  The art is a mixed bag here too with the amount of artists we have, but two-thirds aren't bad and I guess that's something.

    Very uneven. I don’t care abut warlord in anyway.

    Love Oeming's rendering of Warlord and Skartaris, but found the young people banter annoying.

    Young Justice. Bendis. Oh and David F. Walker is here too. Let's see how this goes then.

    The Good:
    Liked Timm's art and Grell's.

    I like the cliffhanger.
    The Bad:

    Art is a bit all over the place and Deming's art didn't work for me.

    Though why do we need even more members when Bendis can't even utilise the original cast efficiently.

    It's better than some of the past issues though that isn't saying much. Nothing much is happening and that's a problem with a monthly series.

    I have no hopes this series will ever become better, and by "better" I mean "any decent". Bendis created his microcosm at DC, time and time reminding us about how Wonder Comics' characters are interconnected. And you know what? I don't mind that, the panel where Jinny's hunk of junk of a truck is being hauled by combined efforts of Wonder Girl, Naomi and Teen Lantern, is some real cool shit. That's exacty what a younger me would love to see in series targetted at my age group - just pure, fun, character oriented action. Which sadly Young Justice doesn't deliver. It's not particularly fun, its characters are bland and lack personalities, and action... well, there's not much of it to be found here. Nothing new if you follow Bendis' work - his more

    How is it that nobody speaks or thinks like a real person in this comic? Even a stopped clock is right twice a day, and it doesn’t hear normal clocks telling the time every single goddamn day!!!

    Have not read this yet, going to make a guess and rate is as bad. Will return after reading to assess if the rating given is accurate.

    Update: Turns out my previous rating of 3/10 was generous. Somehow 5 pages in I was already lost, the dialogue is just some of the worst there is out there.

    I don’t know how a writer who can barely manage the team originally present in this title thinks increasing the roster of characters is a good idea. One example being how Superboy doesn’t seem so much as someone who’s in despair or sick of their situation and looking for support but a pathetic sad sack. Another would be Tim Drake, the “smart” Robin presumed to be a better detective than Batman deciding that just breaking i more

    I am once again mad at myself for buying this book. It has sucked from day one and does not look to be ever going to improve on that. Total waste of money. The issue is badly written. The art work was terrible. I kept saying I'm not going to continue to get it but I keep hoping it will get better and I just really like the character of Tim Drake even though he now is basically being called a male duck every time his name is called. Which still PO's me big time. Who ever came up with that idea is a complete idiot.

    Just awful. The art is some of the worst I've seen in a professional comic, except for the awesome Mike Grell/Warlord pieces.
