This Book Itself Seems Young... 0

The Overview: So here we are with another one of my most anticipated titles of the Marvel NOW! hoopla, Young Avengers. This book is brought to us by some of the members of the same creative team that gave us an amazing Loki-centered run of Journey Into Mystery. Seeing as how this book also involves Loki (the kid version, mind you, if I hadn't mentioned that already), fans would assume that Kieron Gillen's writing magic would transition over almost effortlessly, right? Well... you would be surpri...

We are young 0

This comic immediately got my attention when I saw the variant cover drawn by Scott Pilgrim creator, Bryan Lee O' Malley. Kieron Gillen has been placed in charge of relaunching the Young Avengers- bringing in some new life into it with a mix of old and new faces, "music video" fights, and some modern love. From the first six pages you can already tell that you are experiencing something completely worthwhile.This title oozes with style and delivers a perfect blend of light-heartedness, energy, a...

A Fresh Start for the Young Avengers 0

Since the original Young Avengers disbanded after the Children's Crusade, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie bring us a new group of youthful heroes that will hopefully come together as the Young Avengers. With Kid Loki in this book, is he gonna be able to piece together an Avengers team much like he did decades ago?The GoodIt's always refreshing to pick up a new number one. It's even more refreshing in this case because we finally have a new Young Avengers book! Heinberg and Cheung made their mar...

Substance < Style 0

THE GOODThis comic looks really good. I mean, every character is distinct from each other, the art is crisp and clear, and the two spreads look really awesome in this issue.Kieron Gillen writes some good, snappy dialogue for these characters that don't bog you down with words (*ahem* Talon *ahem*) but get the point across. Loki, especially, busts out the wit.The interactionsTHE BADI don't have a penchant for team books that don't start out as team books (thank god I only got into Justice League ...

Finally the Young Avengers are Here 0

I've never really been a fan of Young Avengers having never really read them, but after hearing that Loki would be joining them, as well as Kieron Gillen writing I thought I'd give it a try, and have been looking forward to reading it.PlotThis issue is split into separate stories that introduce the characters, which includes former Young Avengers Wiccan, Hulkling, and Kate Bishop, and the new additions of Noh-Varr, Miss America, and Loki.ReviewAlthough this issue wasn't quite as good as I expect...

Terribad? 0

This is probably the Marvel Now! Series I was most looking forward to I am a huge Young Avengers fan and they haven’t ever had an ongoing so when this was announced I couldn’t wait.PlotNoh Varr and Kate Bishop are in a spaceship but they are attacked by Skrulls soon after Kate wakes up. Hulkling disguises himself as Spider-man and takes out some thugs but he encounters Wiccan when he gets back to his house.ReviewThis was a really strong start to the series and it is well worth picking up and thi...

Good start 0

Disclaimer: I haven't read Young Avengers in a while so I'm going into this only knowing Hulking, Wiccan, and Loki. The other characters I don't recognize and I rather not look up because I think it will be interesting starting from a fresh impression and seeing them develop without prior background knowledge to fall on.So, that being said, I liked it. It was a good introduction to the characters and I'm rather excited about that :).The first characters you meet are Kate and Noh-varr. Basically ...

Needs more style 0

Young Avengers is a team I'm completely unfamiliar with, keep that in mind.The Good:As the title of the issue suggest this comic has some great style going for it and when it really tries to just go all out with that I really enjoyed it. The art is pretty good and I didn't really have any gripes at all in that department. Fans of Hulkling and Wiccan should be happy to see them getting the most screen time, which I agree is the right choice for the first issue given they're the main members of th...

Don't play with alternate dimensions 0

Young makes me think of cool, younglings, fresh from the oven, without the harsh reality crust that envelops people (and characters or at least it should) as responsability and experience claim their toll. Young also rings a bell to the synonim of "new": ideas, concepts, characters, creative team, narrative structure, way of organizing a book and so on.Taking this two thoughts together, it's safe to say that Gillen's revamp of the Young Avengers sums up some of the fresh and new I mentioned befo...

Young Avengers #1 0

Young Avengers is new territory for this reader of Marvel Comics. Characters like Wiccan, Hulkling, Marvel Boy, and Miss America are entirely unfamiliar while Kid Loki and the second Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) are only remotely familiar because I've read Matt Fraction's The Mighty Thor and Hawkeye. The storytelling method is something I'm familiar with: several young characters are introduced (re-introduced) with the expectation that despite their differences they will learn to work together. These c...

A Mixed Bag 0

I've never been the biggest fan of Gillan's work; he hasn't necessarily shown me a book that's been terrible, but everything he's written has felt fairly mediocre. Sadly, this is another example of just that. For all the tight dialogue he has, there are an equal number of incredibly awkward exposition or frankly cheesy lines. Even Loki sounds rather dumb from time to time, utilizing some absurd sounding slang that adds nothing to the story itself.That's not to say the characters are bad though;...
