    As good as McKeever's story has been, I'm loving Mike Norton's art on the book. There's a range in this particular issue that I noticed on the page as I read it. I didn't have to go back and review the art. Because I'm primarily a story guy, that's about as great of a compliment I can give an artist in a comic. I felt what was going on without needing to rely on the words or be led to feel a particular way. The best example of this was building to the climax of the issue. You know what transpired and the cost of trying to stop Juggernaut. You don't have to assume. You can literally read the faces on the reaction shots of the other Initiative members. I actually had to say I was moved by the end of the book. Read Full Review

    Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt #3Posted: Friday, July 8, 2011By: Ray Tate Sean McKeeverMike Norton, Veronica Gandini (c)Marvel It's no secret that I normally prefer female protagonists over male protagonists. This isn't a gender-biased decision on my part. Indeed, some of my favorite characters are men: The Doctor, James Bond, Batman, Spock, Michael Weston, just to name a few. Unfortunately, male characters outside the classics tend to be written as jackasses, and the writers appear to think that I'll empathize with a jackass. Let me just say right here and now: You're sadly mistaken. So imagine my surprise when Sean McKeever devotes nearly an entire issue of Youth in Revolt to a male hero and knocks it out of the park.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 6, 2011

    Issue #3 isn't entirely flawless. The series is so precariously crammed with characters as it is, and McKeever makes the mistake of dragging a new faction of heroes into the mix. These new characters add nothing to the proceedings beyond occupying a few panels. The last thing Youth in Revolt needs at this point is more conflict, so hopefully McKeever can remain tightly focused in the second half of the book. Read Full Review
