The big climax that sets the stage big time for what is to come in 2012! Deaths and departures! The funeral of an Avenger. The final fate of the Scarlet Witch. A new lineup and a new direction for the Young Avengers.

    I would say pick this issue up. It was a great last issue for the mini series. There are a lot of great cliffhangers in this issue. I hope to see how the Young Justice story continues, but the question is how long will we have to wait? Read Full Review

    AVENGERS: CHILDREN'S CRUSADE was a great story that did justice to all the characters involved. I can't wait to read the next story on the same level of awesomeness as this one. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Mar 8, 2012

    A very nice miniseries comes to an end. It turned out to be a very good and beautiful Young Avengers story. I'm a little disappointed that it didn't become a great Marvel Universe story, but I probably got my expectations too high. Well worth checking out! Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Mar 7, 2012

    Now let's just hope some of the creators involved with Avengers vs. X-Men have read this series and respect its tone and message about what they're about to do before plucking out its characters and plugging them into their fight card. If it feels just as contrived as it sounds, those of us who read Avengers: The Children's Crusade are going to have that much more difficult a time swallowing it. However, considering the pre-sale numbers are going through the roof for AvX, they likely don't care all that much. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jake Baumgart Mar 8, 2012

    Sometimes I feel that books the lead into summer events (like Avengers vs. X-Men, for example) sometimes suffer from too much exposition or the logistics of putting characters into place. The Avengers: The Children's Crusade does this without feeling heavy handed or trite and makes for an excellent reading experience. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 7, 2012

    Luckily, Jim Cheung's artwork is surprisingly strong considering the rush to finish the series before Avengers vs. X-Men. The presence of two inkers occasionally works to dull his precise line-work, but for the most part his cinematic appeal and knack for fine details remains. Children's Crusade will at least go own in history as a visual showpiece. It's a shame it couldn't do a better job of elevating the Young Avengers and building on past Marvel events too.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 8, 2012

    Poised between events past and events yet to come, "Avengers: The Children's Crusade" provided some great moments for the characters across multiple franchises. Set so close to the kickoff of "Avengers Vs. X-Men," I expected this final issue to be filled with considerably more action and excitement. This anti-climatic, quiet issue was still enjoyable, mind you, it just wasn't as bombastic as the talents and characters assembled would normally lead such a comic book to be. Read Full Review

    This comic was a very good series but I can’t help but feel that if it had a different writer it would have been a great series
