Three months have passed for the Young Avengers. What have they been up to? Fun stuff, I'll bet. The sort of "stuff" that makes an excellent super hero comic. THIS IS TRUTH WITH A CAPITAL EVERYTHING.A very important breakfast. A new Young Avenger. A selection of emotions.Oh - I bet you thought we forgot about those Skrulls from issue 1. We haven't.

    Newsarama - George Marston Jul 10, 2013

    Seven issues in, Young Avengers has gone through some hurdles, and had one or two issues that didn't quite match the book's promise, however issue #7 may be just about the best one since the first. It may be that Kieron Gillen simply excels at these kind of introductory or transitional issues, but more likely, now that the team is basically formed and the stage set, Young Avengers is really taking off.

    There's next to nothing wrong with this comic. The only real criticism is that the Skrull subplot gets rather quickly wrapped up, but that only leads to even better scenes of breakfast and smoochin'. This issue is all about the team and their interactions and nothing is more delightful than this ensemble of heroes. They're like a family in only the way that only young post-high school kids forced together can be. Honestly, while there is a ton of action on page, the plot for the issue is talking but it never feels like that. This book always feels like there's some beat bouncing in the background or an explosion happening somewhere; it never stops. Please, go read it. If you have ever been young, and we really hope you have been at some point in your life, this book will appeal to you. Maybe not in its (arguable) overuse of social media platforms and words like "probs," but probs in its passion. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 10, 2013

    Eventually, this issue picks up on threads from last month's standalone installment involving Prodigy and the mysterious disappearance of Speed. Prodigy quickly finds his niche within the team dynamic, particularly as he butts heads with Loki. There's not much sense as to where this arc is headed at the moment but who cares? The book is even more fun now than it was in the first arc, and the newfound sense of unpredictability only adds to the excitement. Read Full Review

    Every month, I always have nothing but the best to say about this series. There's hardly ever a misstep, either with the story or the artwork, and it truly is a joy to read. This month we're treated to two issues, which is excellent news for me and every other fan of this book, especially after the cliffhanger ending to this issue and the promise that the next issue cover has. Every issue of this series is so compelling that as soon as it finishes, I want to go back and read it again, and I can think of no higher praise than that. Read Full Review

    It's not exactly the most revealing or productive issue, but it's well on its way to being both, and it has more than enough entertainment to keep you occupied. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jul 12, 2013

    "Young Avengers" #7 is not a resolutely high-brow title, happily so, but every page has evidence of Gillen and McKelvie's formal experimentation, little gifts to the reader for paying attention. These showy results are the consequence of subtle craftsmanship. Most impressively, the experimentation serves the story instead of just being academically interesting. All the clever verbal and visual risks Gillen and McKelvie take enhance both characterization and the reading experience instead of being distracting or overshadowing the action. At the same time, the playful, acrobatic artistry of "Young Avengers" is an attraction in its own right, making it one of the best examples on the shelves of style as substance. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - MikeFitz538 Jul 10, 2013

    It's a very good and very unique comic which this issue is a great example of. This issue weaves together the status that the team was left in at the end of the 1st arc, but also weaves it together with a really cool issue 6 that saw a team up of former X-Men Prodigy and Young Avengers Speed.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jul 16, 2013

    So this isn't a comic for everyone - it requires some work on the part of the reader to keep up with the twists and turns of the story. But if you're willing to put in the effort, it's a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Jul 11, 2013

    Aside from this the book still shows a lot of potential when it comes to what these characters are capable of. Miss Chavez apparently can do a little more than just punch and kick, while Loki as per usual still has many tricks up his sleeve which he's hiding. Story-wise, it is still the one book out there which can be serious yet doesn't take itself too seriously. Read Full Review
