Comic Review 209 // Young Justice - Creature Features


Got to love the library! The kids found Volume 3 of Young Justice and were instantly drawn to it due to the Gorillas. Couldn't argue with the logic, so here we are reading out of order. Enjoy!

Review

Personally, I was a fan of Young Justice and even started reviewing the series until we got rid of Netflix (this is something I need to revisit). The main cast is, in my opinion, some of the most easily understandable characters in the DC verse. Made up of Robin, Superboy (a Cadmus-Clone merging Superman DNA with Human), Aqua Lad, Miss Martian, Kid Flash and towards the end, Artemis.

This team was created by the Justice League to act as a covert arm because the media were constantly following the main heroes. It was also meant to act as their training school and keep them out of trouble.

As mentioned, there were many one-shot stories, but we got some good ones. Aqua Lad's adventure for me was a standout as he was a character that I didn't really know much about; also, dealing with racism is a meaningful conversation to have with the young ones. We also get to witness the origins of Gorilla City and Gord, along with the origins of Kobra.

Is this a title you need to read...no? Is it a title you should read...maybe? Did I enjoy it for an evening of reading with the kids...definitely yes! It all comes down to what you want from it. If you want some quick adventures to zone out to with a cup of tea, then this book is for you!

Let me know if you have read this book and if I should find the earlier titles.

Thanks for reading!
