    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Apr 14, 2008

    Young Liars is a wonderful piece of work that communicates well to people in their late 20s and early 30s. It's a painful reminder of youth and how dangerous life really was in those reckless years. Read Full Review

    As for Lapham's art, it's no more or less impressive than you average Vertigo book. If anything, it could do with a heavier splash of color, but again, that's a problem many Vertigo books seem to have. I respect Lapham for managing to put out Young Liars on a monthly basis (so far) while writing and drawing the issues. However, I won't complain if Lapham is forced to far out the art duties to someone else in order to maintain the shipping schedule. As unmemorable as the art may be, the story is rapidly growing on me, and I'd hate to left waiting any longer than necessary for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Matthew McLean Apr 10, 2008

    All of this is tied together with an oddly disjointed but strangely appropriate set of lyrics that weaves throughout the issue. Much the same as #2, the lyrics are confusing, a bit disjointed and completely alluring. Young Liars promises to be a damn fine book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards May 26, 2008

    David Laphams pencils are once again clear and effective for the story. One thing he should be praised for is his depiction of characters loking like human beings rather than disproportionate Barbie dolls. Every character looks as if they could exist which is a welcome relief to much of the art out in comic books. The bands and music laced throughout the artwork, as mentioned above, is another level to the experience, something that had me going back to the first issue to find some more music to get. This comic book is beginning to cost me more than the three dollars a month in records, some of which are impossible to find! Read Full Review
