    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jun 6, 2019

    A really well done introduction to the new incarnation of Young Justice. While it is not firmly placed into the core of the DC Universe, the mere fact that it is not, and actively deals with the mystery of where these kids have gone, and why they are not all part of continuity, makes it feel like it will be a very important book going forward.

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Jun 6, 2019

    Fast-paced, entertaining, and filled with a lot of heart. Every page has something enjoyable, and the new "Young Justice" team is one we're likely to remember as fondly as the first. Read Full Review

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

    Young Justice #6 successfully closes the series opening arc, establishing the protagonists, and setting the stage for whats next to come. Thoroughly fun and exciting, the issue would be perfect, if not for the cop-out regarding Superboys family, and confusion regarding Cassies memories. An overall fantastic issue, Young Justice #6 is an absolute joy to read, which will excite readers in anticipation for where the series will progress. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Vishal Gullapalli Jun 5, 2019

    As a whole, this issue is a delightful conclusion to an incredibly unexpected adventure. The team truly feels like a team, and has a very clear reason to stick together after their opening adventure. Bendis, Timms, Eltaeb, and Abbott are all clicking in place, and the future of Young Justice looks incredibly bright -- although, maybe not for the team just yet. Read Full Review

    John Timms art is beautiful and beautifully detailed. The characters look amazing and the action leaps off the page with energy and style. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 5, 2019

    Bendis seemed to abruptly get bored with the Gem World arc, but with the introductions out of the way we can start to see his vision for the direction of this title. It should be a fun adventure. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 5, 2019

    This first arc had some flaws " it tried to do so much that it short-changed some of the characters, and its storytelling was rather decompressed " but there's no question it's easily the most entertaining "young DC" book we've had in years. Low bar given the state of Teen Titans, but Bendis cleared it with ease. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jessica Nilo Alves Jun 7, 2019

    A well-conducted, well executed and, most importantly, extremely fun issue wraps up the first story arc. Young Justice is back! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Jun 8, 2019

    Young Justice #6 is a solid attempt at bringing closure to the first arc from Bendis and company. While the gorgeous art helps it to stand apart, the finale just can't quite seem to deliver where it counts most. Read Full Review

    This feels more like the end of an introduction than the resolution of something major though. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Jun 5, 2019

    Young Justice #6 excels in its portrayal of its large cast of beloved characters. Bendis and Timms make a great team, and are only held back by a lackluster Gemworld plot. Even still, it's salvaged by a touching Superboy story, effective art, and a compelling group dynamic. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jun 5, 2019

    Overall, more care should have been taken on Young Justice and likely it should have been given a 12-issue arc to really devote the time necessary to flush out all of the characters, and the story properly. Regardless, it's a fun series, and I'm hopeful of what's to come in the tie in series that follows this. Read Full Review

    It's the last third in which the premise of the series is finally, fully established that offers a big surprise and lots of reasons for readers to return, even if this issue disappoints some. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jun 5, 2019

    All that being said, I am still hanging on reading Young Justice. Like I said, there is just something about all these characters that I find extremely interesting. If I knew what exactly it was I would tell you, but seeing this group of characters together just makes me want to continue reading their adventures together. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Ari Bard Jun 5, 2019

    Young Justice #6proves to be a solid but safe conclusion to the series's first arc. Brian Michael Bendis has a lot on his plate at DC, but he's still bringing oodles of fun to every issue while giving life to some of our favorite young heroes. Gabe Eltaeb makes Gemworld and Timms's art shine and Abbott's lettering adds a nuance of flare in a fun superhero book with a lot of potential that just needs to take a few more risks.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 5, 2019

    While I love the art in this book and the background given to what Superboy's been up to, this issue didn't offer a lot of answers to what's been going down with our heroes in this book...... Sadly, it's because I don't think the writer knows what the questions are.  That aside, there's some fun to be had here, but the continuity is a mess and the dialog feels really off at times.
