    Anachronisms aside, this is a fantastic first issue. The only thing that sucks is that this story is going to take a year and a half to tell. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Andrenn Jul 17, 2010

    Was Children's Crusade's debut issue all I had hoped it to be? Sort of. Despite its fair amount of weaknesses, the character work really shines in this issue and blew me away, even if not all of it was perfect. The art alone is worth a buy and I really did enjoy reading this issue and am excited for more. I recommend this highly to big Young Avengers fans or someone looking for a great start to the series. I recommend you pick up the first volume by Heinberg and Cheung then Children's Crusade #1. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 8, 2010

    When it comes down to it, the shipping schedule is the only valid reason for not snatching this issue off the shelf. Children's Crusade sees the original Young Avengers crew back in very fine form. I can understand why readers might be hesitant to follow the book from chapter to chapter for the next year-and-a-half. But assuming the quality stays this high, the eventual trade should be high on their to-buy list. As a Young Avengers fan, I've grown accustomed to waiting and being rewarded for it in the end.

    Still, it's great to see the characters back, and hopefully starting next month we'll see some of the characters that fell into the background here (Patriot, Hawkeye, and the Vision in particular). All in all? It's great to be home again. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Jul 10, 2010

    This book is not necessarily a disappointment and certainly not a failure, nor is this issue's grade a sign of things to come. This series will be great; I got that feeling profoundly from this issue. But I can only grade what I have in my hands, which is merely an introduction. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kelvin Green Jul 16, 2010

    Neither the reappearance of the Young Avengers, nor the homecoming of their original creative team, come as a bolt from the blue, or even a triumphant return. Rather, the feeling is one of comfort, of a return to something familiar. That is not to say that the comic is an exercise in cozy nostalgia without the quality to back it up. Heinberg and Cheung may not be making a big splash here, but they are delivering good, strong superheroics, and it's good to have them, and the Young Avengers, back. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 9, 2010

    A solid first issue. I'm tempted to give it a higher rating, but there were some minor hiccups in this issue and it felt like a sort of reintroduction issue for past fans than a straight up story for anyone to pick up. It's also on a bimonthly schedule, barring delays, which are likely with Heinberg's record, and it might be a better choice to trade wait this one. Read Full Review
