    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

    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

    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

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jun 5, 2019

    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.

    Finally the team is here and I am ready for the stories ahead! Issue itself was one of the strongest in the run but overall the story isn’t that great. Art was alright. More things than not felt forced and just had to be, but at same time, enjoyed some of the dialogue.

    Bendis seems to have missed the mark, and his Young Justice doesn't really feel like the comic I expected it to be, quality wise. Maybe it's just the Gemworld arc, which I never really cared about, or constant jumping from one thing to another (oh, here's this, oh, and here's a retrospection, oh, and there's that, but let's move on to this again, and that, and other that and this...), but in the end I don't feel invested in what I'm reading. I'd like to like these characters and root for them, but for some odd reason I can't.
    There are good moments in there, but overall, I think the series could have had a way better start. Let's hope the narrative quality will improve in next story arcs.

    I know I love books when I get to laugh at them, cry at them, rage at them... you get the drill. And this one just made me laugh plenty of times.

    I love the interactions with the team as a whole. We haven't quite gotten to individual to individual relationships, but hey, if I'm guessing correctly, we have plenty of time! Those awkward moments when the characters don't say anything feels more like a breath of fresh air to me, and plus I get to laugh at those moments.

    My favorite part so far is when Bart just blurts out that Superboy had a baby. We get the explanation that the family just took him in to protect him, and I'm pleased with it. Bart just impulsively does things, as usual, including that blurting moment, and more

    First issue since #1 that I have liked. I don't like Bendis' Dark Opal though, he was much better in the original Amethyst run.

    This book isn't as special as it could be (possibly due to spending more than half of the first arc to (re)introduce the cast), but I don't know, I really enjoy reading it? There's definitely chemistry between the characters, and I really hope the next arc will be better.

    "If you have to ask, does it really matter?"

    Now that we finally got some answers as to how and what, and the Gemworld business is over, maybe this book will become more focused and stop feeling so disjointed and directionless.

    I hope, because the team itself and their interactions are pretty fun.

    This was certainly one of the better issues of this arc. But man, I can't get over some of this dialogue. I counted at least two instances of the dialogue just flat out not making sense. You know what this series needs? An issue where everyone just hangs out and talks. There needs to be an issue where we can truly establish this team and its place in the DCU, but instead they got thrown into a boring Gemworld conflict and now are strung about the multiverse.
