The Young Avengers Return!

It's about time.  I never understood why we haven't had an ongoing Young Avengers series.   Maybe there were...issues with the creators but as long as Marvel gets a good writer, I'm fine with it.  I only got a couple issues when it first came out for some reason.  I later went back and got the trades and devoured them.  Yes we saw them during Civil War but I think it's time they get their own book.

Because You Demanded It! Spinning out of the critically-acclaimed Young Avengers, the hottest new super-team of the century is back in YOUNG AVENGERS PRESENTS #1 (of 6)! Eisner & Harvey Award-winning scribe Ed Brubaker (CAPTAIN AMERICA DAREDEVIL, CRIMINAL), rising star artist Paco Medina (NEW X-MEN) and cover artist Jim Cheung (NEW AVENGERS: ILLUMINATI, co-creator of YOUNG AVENGERS) bring you a spotlight on Patriot, grandson of the black Captain America, as he deals with Steve Rogers' passing. Seeking out the enigmatic Winter Solider (better known as Bucky Barnes), Patriot hopes to find some guidance in dealing with the death of Marvel's greatest hero…but who he's looking for and who he finds may be two very different things!

Beginning a six-part look at the roles of Patriot, Hulking, Wiccan, Vision, Stature and Hawkeye in the post-Civil War universe, YOUNG AVENGERS PRESENTS sets the stage for the future of these heroes—and the Marvel Universe will never be the same!
