    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Holden Mar 7, 2019

    Young Justice #3 continues the series marriage of meaningful character development and fantastically drawn action, in its reintroduction of a long-beloved character. Superboys re-emergence broaches nostalgia, but also adds depth and mystery to the character, showing promise of how Bendis plans to have these revered characters grow, while still respecting their pasts.

    Comicsverse - Raphael Soohoo Mar 7, 2019

    Writer Brian Michael Bendis shows us what happened to Impulse and Connor Kent -- and Connor's been busy! Bendis is respectful of the past but definitely carves his own path. Guest artist Bogdanovic is great, drawing the flashback sequence. Gleason is his usual terrific self, but Superboy could be scruffier. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 6, 2019

    Like Teen Titans and Titans, Young Justice is a book that flies by and really would benefit from a twice a month release schedule. Bendis is starting to get comfortable with the characters and the title is only going to become more addictive from here. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Mar 12, 2019

    Young Justice #3 focuses on Superboys past, and current situation, to delve into what has kept him on Gemworld. Although the other members take a backseat, the story is able to explore the impact of their relationships in a unique way, showing that heart will continue to be the driving force in the series.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 6, 2019

    Superboy is definitely the most tricky character to work with out of the four, as Bendis not only has to bring him back, he has to reconcile the two versions of the character " the rebellious 90s surfer kid from his 100-issue solo series, and the humble farmboy and protege of Superman's from the Johns run.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Mar 6, 2019

    With the entire team captive, Brian Michael Bendis, Patrick Gleason, and Viktor Bogdanovic do have the team in quite a pickle though, and I'm interested to see some of the flashbacks that show Conner's life as a family man in Gemworld. And as long as it's a good story, continuity doesn't matter. Young Justice #3 is compelling as a Superboy solo issue, but sometimes the art doesn't mesh and the check-in with the rest of Young Justice is either rushed or unnecessary. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 18, 2019

    While the rest of the team, who were imprisoned by Lord Opal after their failed uprising attempt, only gets cameos here, the focus remains on Superboy. His reaction to Lord Opal's soldiers seems to suggest he may not have his powers in Gemworld (but we'll have to wait and see if that is the case) while the soldiers' reaction to the emblem on his chest continues to showcase the distrust of Superman by those in Gemworld. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Mar 11, 2019

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 6, 2019

    The art is the real draw to this story because you really won't get anything out of the characters......... at least anything that makes sense to the continuity.  Yeah, the answers about Superboy don't make a lick of sense and I'm not even positive that Brian Michael Bendis knows which version of the character he's supposed to be writing.  Even without that though, there really isn't anything to this issue.

    The Batman Universe - Jessica Nilo Alves Mar 8, 2019

    The plot of the series feels as if it is on standstill while flashbacks take the forefront. This may yet prove to make sense once the full story unfolds but, meanwhile, the single issues are starting to feel more like “team member of the week” and less like a team book. Read Full Review

    Young Justice is a curious specimen - it has all the potential to be an outstanding book - the cast of characters is super colorful and each has their unique personality, talents, traits and purpose. That's good - and that's exactly why Wolfman and Pérez's New Teen Titans was such a success.
    But then again, the disjointed writing really works against it and ruins the great first impression. To be fair, though, this issue is most definitely better than its predecessor, which felt completely out of place. And out of time.

    Good thing - Bendis slowly unravels character backstories - that's nice. Superboy's surprising twist was pretty cool, and seems promising - mostly because it adds a layer of maturity to the series, different more

    Another issue of build-up, focusing mainly on Connor Kent (which I am very much up for). Gleason's art is great as always, and Bogdanovic was a nice addition, even if the styles between these artists are not much that similar. But, of course, the main selling point here is that cliffhanger (which is, surprisingly, in the middle of an issue). Definitely did not expect that! Bendis is still keeping me surprised with this book, and I hope that continues with the upcoming issues as well.

    I feel like everything happening here is important, but it still feels kind of slow... and fast (not in a good way) at the same time. I dont know.
    I dont know much about Superboy, so i dont know what happened to him before. Impulse is great.
    Not much happens here, but at the same time, a lot of things happen. I just dont know. Still excited for the next issue, though.

    In one hand I'm very happy to have again this alchemy between Impulse & Superboy. Man I miss those character. I another this story don't tell much. Ok we have how Connor find himself on gemworld. And we have in addition a new developpement about him. But like for Cassie, it's weird to see him give up that easily. And the rest of the team are in prison but we don't really see how they finish there.
    It's like bendis put a rond object in a square space by forcing it into. For now even if I know DC confirm it's on the same univers, that could be the old one. Or another one entirely.

    Cover - I take the marvelous variant. Not more related to the story than the regular. 1/2
    Writing - Bendis did good. It's better than the previ more

    "I am the law!"

    Why do I hear Sylvester Stallone in my head all of a sudden?

    Just like in the last issue, the story here is split between the Gemworld and the flashback. It starts to be a little jarring. It makes the Gemowrld part of the story, which I enjoy, feel a bit inconsequential and while it is good to know what happened to Superboy, I don't know if I entirely buy it. Did he ever showed off his powers like that in school and openly talked about being a clone? I don't know. Besides knowing who he is and how he came to be I'm not familiar with this Superboy.

    The art is good and there are some surprises, and a very sweet moment between Bart and Conner at the beginning. But all in all, I'm getting a litt more

    While we do get the background info on Connor, the issue doesn’t do anything for me to wanting to read more. Does have an artwork like form the old days. Still much to answer for with Connor though and the cliffhanger, you could have ended issue before that scene and it would have been better.

    #NOTMYCONNORKENT Entire explanation why Conner get onto Gewmorld is bullcrap. Literal character regression. And DC editors doesn't care about their own continuity. It doesn't fit with Lemirre serie or any other series. How I should care.

    The worst edition so far, I signed up to see what looked like an awesome team and we have had nothing in the last two editions. Too much boring back story and not enough now action.
