    So THIS issue was fantastic, there are storylines aplenty going on here, and it goes without saying that going forward things should only get better! Needless to say, THIS is my favorite mini-series of 2010, period, the end. Read Full Review

    I continue to love Children's Crusade despite the delay. While I would love to pick up Avengers The Children's Crusade #4 next month, this series is without a doubt worth the wait. It's a big Avengers event with no crappy tie-ins and its got all the feel of a massive storyline set to reshape the Marvel universe and key players in it. Its got excellent character work and amazing artwork and while this issue does have some minor problems I still give this mini a huge recommendation so if you missed issues 1 and 2 do not delay, go pick them up and then this issue with them.

    Solid book and a great follow-up to the original series by Heinberg and Cheung. This is not a great jumping on point if you've never read the Young Avengers before, but I highly recommend picking up the original 12 issue series. For Young Avengers fans, this is a fun series so far and a must have. Read Full Review

    Other than those few instances where it felt like Heinberg was either bending pre-established ground rules, resorting to gross hyperbole or both, Avengers: The Children's Crusade was another enjoyable albeit predictable read. Very few writers today are capable of telling a story that feels timeless and new at the same time, and even fewer are able to build on past continuity while still keeping their stories accessible. Heinberg is one of them, and his stories are often must-reads as a result. Even when they're slightly flawed. Read Full Review

    If youre looking for a lot happening for your four dollars, then you may have come to the wrong place. Only two really important things even happen in this issue, but I guarantee you wont mind. Youll be way too engaged taking in the scenery and seeing how every character talks to one another. Part of me wants to deduct more points than I am for the lack of meat, as it were, this month, but I just cant. This is honestly one of the few books on the shelves today that could work just as well as both a normal book without illustrations as well as an art book, but works even better when combined. Does it reinvent the story telling wheel? Is it good from beginning to end? Oh yes. Read Full Review
