    By now I don't think anyone will be surprised to hear that I give this issue a huge recommendation. Even if you missed the first, go out and buy it then get this issue with it and you will have an amazing read you will not regret buying. For big fans of the Young Avengers its a must have and for anyone who loves the Marvel Universe. Even if you're a newbie wanting to get into this great team this is a great start for you. Do not trade-wait what is now looking to be one of the biggest Marvel stories in a very long time. Bi-monthly or not it is clearly worth the wait. Read Full Review

    I could easily go on for another several paragraphs detailing just how much I loved this comic, but I won't. Instead I'll post the score(which shouldn't be a HUGE surprise!)as well as several scans from the comic. That's right, SEVERAL scans! I liked this comic so much I couldn't decide on just one page to post. I CAN'T wait for the next issue!!! Read Full Review

    The return of the Young Avengers may not have warranted much press from Marvel, but I’d suggest any fan of character driven works to run down to their shop and pick this up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Sep 1, 2010

    Children's Crusade #2 is another fantastic outing from the creative duo that first put the Young Avengers on the map. It's comics like this that make me tolerate long delays, and even wish publishers would more often allow a creative team the time and authority to take a group of company-owned characters on an extended journey.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 1, 2010

    By the time this story is complete, a year-and-a-half will have passed in the real world. That makes the wait between issues " or the wait for a collected edition " almost unbearable. The payoff, however, is a great story with high stakes made all the better by Cheung's fantastic art. Quite simply, it's a story worth waiting for. Read Full Review

    I want Cheung to draw every book on the shelves. Seriously - - he's that much of talent. While I've got some issues about this leading to character connections that're going to be overly Byzantine, it's still a fun ride and I'll stick around for the simple reason of getting to see more of his art. Marvel should make posters of every page. Read Full Review

    Heinberg and Cheung are selling this story for me, and selling it well. Itll be too long a wait for issue three. Read Full Review
