    You know, this comic was so unbelievably good that I had a hard time typing up this review... I literally couldn't type fast enough, and that's NEVER happened to me before. This comic was a masterpiece in every single aspect. The story was perfect. Simply perfect. Read Full Review

    This issue was a good step in the right direction, as the narrative became far more focused and character-centric, which is where the success of the Young Avengers franchise lies in the first place. It's the character work that Heinberg handled so brilliantly in the first series which made so many readers into fans of these characters, yet thus far we haven't had nearly as much quality character focus thus far in this series. Here's hoping that this issue is an indication of the quality and enjoyment to be had in upcoming issues. Recommended! Read Full Review

    Taking the good with the bad, this issue doesn't really disappoint, it just doesn't live up to the lofty expectations that Heinberg's first Young Avengers volume set for this team's adventures. However, if you've enjoyed the series thus far, you'll undoubtedly enjoy this issue as well. Read Full Review
