    The only thing one can reasonably hold against "Children's Crusade?" The schedule. When superhero comics are this brilliant, this page-turningly compelling, the fact that we're being asked to wait two months for each issue borders on actual cruelty. Roll on, March. Read Full Review

    Sheesh, how many superlatives can I use to describe this series? Once again, it showed why it was my mini-series of the year last year, and why it WILL be my mini-series of the year THIS year as well. The story is insanely strong, the art is magnificent, the dialogue is spot on, and all of the characterizations are absolutely perfect. Read Full Review

    The Young Avengers have been trapped in a cycle of big-event crossover madness since about 2007, with Marvel seemingly willing to wait as long as it takes for Heinberg and Cheung regardless of the wait between series (or, indeed, between issues.) In this case, though, I agree with the decision, as the team works terribly well under the creators and less so under other pens. Avengers The Childrens Crusade #4 is a fine comic with wonderful art, and earns a delayed but still quality 4 out of 5 stars overall. Read Full Review

    I've got a stake in whether Wanda is healed, or forgiven, or exiled further. But that's not the only reason I'm sticking around. This isn't just the Big Guns, or big catastrophic demonstrations of power (you'll find that in the Bendis titles, which are actually best when they're funny). And it isn't espionage. It's the tapestry of the Marvel universe, full of charismatic heroes and those who believe in their legacy. Read Full Review
