    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Apr 3, 2019

    Overall this is my favourite issue of the run so far and provides evidence that the run is only going to get better from here. It was also great to finally have the OG young justice characters finally meet and get back together. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton May 1, 2019

    I am also a bit hazy on the seven Crises that are being referred to throughout this series. I read an awful lot of books now that I am reviewing them, and its entirely possible I have missed or forgotten something, but I sure would like a clear listing of which seven events are being cited. Thankfully, the next issue blurb refers to this directly, so perhaps my confusion is about to be cleared up. Read Full Review

    Patrick Gleason and John Timms deliver some truly amazing art in this issue and everything from the characters to the action looks fantastic. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 3, 2019

    Patrick Gleason shares art duties with John Tims. Tims' art matches up somewhat favorable with Gleason, but it's too early in the run for shared art duties. Especially since Gleason's art looks so great.Young Justice is just a few steps off from being a must-read book each month. The good news is it seems headed in that right direction. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 3, 2019

    Four issues in, Young Justice is starting to feel like the longest, most-leisurely high school reunion, and it's a testament to Bendis' writing and the enduring interest in the characters that it remains a compelling book despite a pace that seems to slow down by the issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Holden Jul 16, 2019

    A requisite issue, Young Justice #4 amicably progresses the established narrative, and elicits some heartwarming moments for long-term fans, but provides nothing exemplary or ground-breaking in addition. Serviceably solid, if youve been enjoying the series thus far, youll similarly appreciate this chapter.  Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Antonio Pedro Apr 6, 2019

    Sure Bendis is Bendising, but it's the good kind of Bendising. It's written in a very fun way, with cool art and action. If you're looking for something fun and very superhero-y to read, there are much worse books I could think of than this one. I recommend it, go read it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Apr 16, 2019

    Young Justice #4 is a step in the right direction for the series, but its emphasis on outlying plot lines only distracts from those who should be the main focus. Beautiful artwork and some truly heartfelt moments make this an issue still worth reading though. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Adrian Care Apr 3, 2019

    As a part of a larger arc, the story is fine. The issue's OK, but every multi-part storyline these days could do with one less issue and when the Seven Crises arc is wrapped up, I feel like this could be the issue that was more enjoyable padding then essential read. But enjoyable padding is something Bendis has made his bread and butter. As much as it kills us, he's very good at it. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Apr 8, 2019

    "Young Justice" #4 spends too much time circling in place and dramatizing events that could easily have been summarized. Character voices may be strong but the larger narrative needs to get a move on soon. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 5, 2019

    There's a lot of potential on display in Young Justice, but the storyline needs a little bit of tightening up to win over new fans. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Connor Casey Apr 3, 2019

    While Bendis' snappy dialogue is fun at first, by this issue readers will likely start wishing a few of the characters would shut up for a second so somebody can bother to explain what's going on. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 3, 2019

    Gemworld aside........ and that's going to be a pretty big thing to try and put aside this issue, I liked what we got from our Young Justice heroes and loved the art overall.  I just wish that we didn't have to have these issues happening in Gemworld because if you're not really into that aspect of DC Comics and know little about it....... I don't know what you'll get from all of the flashbacks we get here.   Read Full Review
