The Young Avengers find themselves on the wrong side of the Scarlet Witch's reality-altering powers in their final battle against the forces of the Avengers and X-Men. As this epic series approaches its end, it seems no team will escape unscathed.

    What an incredible story this has been! As if it couldn't get more exciting, Allan Heinberg ups the ante with issue 8 of 9. Jim Cheung's gorgeous art help tell an exceptional story. His ability to capture emotion, action, excitement and expression are incredible. This is the type of book that will leave you sad when you get to the final page and the realization that you have to wait another two months for the final issue sets in. Great way to end the final Wednesday of 2011. Read Full Review

    With only one more issue to go, we can confidently say that this series will become a classic read. If you're not reading it, it's probably a bit late to start, but do yourself a favor and buy the collection. Read Full Review

    Jim Cheung continues to turn out beautiful artwork, with all three teams looking worse for the wear as the story marches in towards its conclusion next issue. This is most definitely one of those books that will change the status quo not only for the Young Avengers, but for the Marvel Universe as a whole. And knowing that the whole thing is feeding into next years big crossover makes me more interested in Avengers Vs. X-Men than I was before, which means this title is most definitely doing its job.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 31, 2011

    There are rumored to be big plans coming out of Marvel after this series ends, which hopefully means a little more Young Avengers in our future, but the issue ends up not working as either a cohesive story or as a penultimate setup to whatever blowoff we're going to get next time 'round. Avengers: The Children's Crusade #8 spends all the goodwill credit that the first seven issues earned, hits the reader over the head with the writing equivalent of too much eye contact, and leaves me with a disappointed 2 out of 5 stars overall. At least I'm not worried about there being two active Hawkeyes anymore... Read Full Review
