    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Sep 11, 2019

    I've been dubious about this series, but I find myself happy to have stuck with the series now that the story feels more defined. Young Justice #8 is one of DC's sleeping giants and is one to watch out for. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jessica Nilo Alves Sep 13, 2019

    While the previous issue felt more like a fun stand-alone portraying the misadventures of the team, this issue gains flesh and brings the story back to its main line. With some stunning art delivered by John Timms and Gabe Eltaeb in every single action scene, this would be a must-read even if it weren't for the suggestion of Tim Drake's new identity – which is coming from the most obvious place ever. That's a stroke of genius. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Sep 11, 2019

    Young Justice #8 was worth the longer than usual wait. Jon Timms is producing his best work on the title so far with some incredible and cohesive action sequences. Bendis flexes his muscles by not only balancing the core four very well but also with some totally new villains. If you didn't love the first arc, I recommend giving it another shot. This issue is just pure fun. Read Full Review

    This issue is a top-notch set up for what comes next both in a multiversal jaunt and for heroes prepared to establish what good and evil means their own generation. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Sep 11, 2019

    Overall: Young Justice is an absolute blast. If you love classic superhero action and adventure stories that focus on entertainment then you definitely should check out Young Justice #8. This is a modern comic book that proudly says that superhero comic books absolutely can be fun. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nancy Northcott Sep 11, 2019

    All things considered, this was an interesting, engaging story with lots of fun character interplay, but the narration undercut it severely. If that had been on just a couple of pages, it would've been a relatively minor problem. Since it pervaded the book, however, it was a huge stumbling block. Read Full Review

    "Young Justice" #8 packs a lot of ideas but doesn't contain enough space or focus to explore all of them. Read Full Review

    This wasnt the strongest issue of Young Justice thanks to a forced group of opponents and an overall lack of chemistry building with the still young team. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 17, 2019

    Like Bart, I would have been happier if the team has spend more time in Captain Carrot‘s world than in this one, but the comic is notable for the high-level of action (and the suggested death of one member of the team… before they have even technically become a team). For fans. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 11, 2019

    If you're looking for an issue that's a big fight scene between our heroes and their unimaginative evil counterparts from Earth-3...... Well, maybe this issue is for you because it certainly looks good, I just can't say that the story is there or that Brian Michael Bendis really cares about the characters he's writing.

    DC Comics News - Ari Bard Sep 23, 2019

    Young Justice #8 is a lukewarm issue that proves to be the artists' best issue while being one of Bendis's worst. The action and playful banter are fun, but some of the Earth-3 names, and decisions do not serve the story well. Read Full Review

    Ugh, just cut it, Bendis, and let the characters come home finally, because the entire Gemworld, and now multiverse jumping plot isn't really interesting. It's something that fits The Terrifics, who by the way manage to pull off. This series, in comparison, seems like a wasted potential - I remember an interview with Marv Wolfman, regarding his legendary The New Teen Titans run, and how he explained each of the team members is different, and allows different stories to be told. You have Raven, who is connected to magic, Cyborg, a technological character, Starfire, and alien - you get the idea, right? Young Justice doesn't seem to have that, sadly. 8 issues in, and so far none of the main cast members had a single moment to shine on their ow more

    Okay there are several things about this issue I didn't like.

    1. The art work was lazy. I prefer the art to be drawn more real life. I hate when characters are drawn with just lines for eyes and lips. I also hate when they are drawn with sharp edges and odd angled body parts. That's just laziness on the artist part.

    2. The new characters so far are NOT that interesting. Plus they don't really feel like a team but they are still new so they could come together better with time. I'm not sure about them becoming interesting though.

    3. Was not happy with Spoiler/ Steph popping up. One thing about the comic I was enjoying was her not being in the comic since the first issue. I have not been a fan of Spoiler sin more

    Boy, there was a lot of Bendis books this week. Guess the quality has to drop somewhere asides from Event Leviathan so let's see how this issue of Young Justice holds up.

    The Good:
    It's cool to see the evil versions of the team, even if some don't make complete sense.

    The Bad:
    You guessed it, continuity issues are aplenty. Earth 3 was wiped from existence by the Anti-Monitor. It's why Forever Evil happened. But I guess it's too good for Bendis to pass up on.

    Speaking of which, Bendis really likes putting Earth 3 into his stories. He's already done the same in Superman... Interesting.


    The issue was interesting enough to avoid a 5 for boredo more
