    Whatever its influences, Young Justice: Targets hits the mark. Fans of the show will love it, but newcomers who have yet to explore the world of Earth-16 will find this book a ready portal towards seeing what they've been missing. Here's hoping we see more Young Justice comics like this one and confirmation of Season 5 shortly! Read Full Review

    This issue is an excellent start in what I hope turns into a long-running collection of short stories. I know I can't wait for issue two! Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Jul 16, 2022

    The only real downside is that this comic kind of feels like the first five minutes of an episode from Young Justice, even with the backup story. Plus, you don't really see much of the Team or the Outsiders, so it's primarily the Bowhunters crew. A little bit of a nitpick, the action is a little slow and while the artists try, it lacks a strong sense of energy and momentum to it. But these criticisms hardly make the comic terrible. I would suggest getting this if you're either a really big fan of the show, waiting until a couple more issues are out, or wait until the whole series is finished. Either way, it's a good comic that can entertain you, whether you're a fan of the show or a new fan. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue has many of the same strengths and weaknesses as the main series. It's definitely not the series we left before the second time jump. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 15, 2022

    This is the first issue, and I absolutely believe that Greg and Co.have a great story to tell here, and I'll be reviewing it every month giving them the benefit of the doubt. But this feels like something that will read a lot better when the whole series has been released and I don't particularly love that. The art will carry the score on issue #1, and I'm hoping the story catches up by issue #2 Read Full Review
