    All in all, Grevioux keeps Young Avengers Presents afloat better than I might have expected. If only Marvel would see reason and cancel New Warriors. I have faith his talents could be better put to use in a series like this. Read Full Review

    Not much happens here, but it's a vaguely compelling nothing, with art that reminds me of Butch Guice, but doesn't quite hit the mark. Read Full Review

    It's all way over the top, in that way that leaves most of the players to sound like stock characters rather than real people. Heinberg had more innovative ideas when he created this title, but of course he takes them to Hollywood first these days. I'm glad to see the Young Avengers (and the similarly MIA Runaways) have planned roles in Secret Invasion because both properties deserve more excitement than this sort of hack moralizing. The art by Breitweister is in the Michael Lark mode of grubby realism, which means this tale looks better than it reads. Read Full Review

    It was a very pedestrian read and I felt little emotion and cared even less about the story. It's sad, too, because I love the characters and was so pysched when I first heard about this series and I don't think I've been overly impressed or happy with any of the issues to date.
