    Okay, this comic is dated. Like uber dated. Like some lingo I never even heard was used in it and I'm a 90s baby. Its interesting, lol. It also does a thing I kinda hate which is where every character refers to each other by their codenames. Kon frequently calls Tim "Rob" which is a nickname based on his codename and I didn't like that. I was confused about Cassie being a brunette because I swear she has blond hair in other comics? Idk. Anywho, David fooled around with some fourth wall breaking he Okay, this comic is dated. Like uber dated. Like some lingo I never even heard was used in it and I'm a 90s baby. Its interesting, lol.

Kon frequently calls Tim "Rob" which is a nickname based on his codename and I didn't like that. I was confused about Cassie being a brunette because I swear she has blond hair in other comics? Idk. Anywho, David fooled around with some fourth wall breaking here. There were quite a few really bad jokes. Like not offensive just dad jokes? Tim talked like someone's middle aged stepdad. I'm trying to like this character, honest I am but he's quite the wet blanket here. Although, I think I finally pinpointed why Tim Drake doesn't work as a character for me: he's like Batman. He's super competent, highly skilled, intelligent, etc but he has little to no personality in 90% of the books I've read with him. Here, he just spoils everyone else's fun and that's sort of his only role. I had wondered if perhaps I just don't like straight man type characters but I adore Captain America and he does quite a few of the same things. Something about Tim just doesn't work for me. I hope that changes as the series goes on. Anywho, I adore Kon. Kon's a dear. He's adorable, a little temperamental and protective over his teammates. I've decided to stan. I was annoyed at how the women were written in 90% of this. Again, I hate when a female character's only personality trait is being boy crazy. A lot of Cassie's role here is drooling over Superboy and being jealous when he fawns over Arrowette. I should also mention Arrowette showed no interest in anyone (except Cassie, to be honest). It's so stupid, immature and honestly it just annoys me. Women have a lot more to discuss besides whether a dude finds them dateable. I hope Cassie gets over that soon. Because Cissie is adorable and they'd actually be adorable together (I'm pretty damn sure that doesn't happen though). So, while dated, this was pretty interesting. Not gonna lie, all of Impulse's line were annoying to me. But I'll continue on because this series is okay.

    A very interesting first series about a couple of teenage superheroes trying to make it on their own (wait a minute...) Robin, Superboy and Impluse team up and fight the bad guys, even when fighting themselves. They soon gain more members and even attract the attention of the Justice League! A great series to read when wanting to know more about the Young Justice and how it all started. P.S. There is a TV series that is called Young Justice and there are actually similarities to these comics!

    I have always loved the light, humorous air of teen-aged superhero comics. Young Justice has even more to recommend it and that more comes in the shape of Robin. Tim Drake is, as I have said many times before, the best Robin ever. Oh, it isn't Dick's fault that he was found by Bruce after his parents died and he didn't, say, obsessively track down Batman because he is smart enough to do that. It is totally Jason's fault that he was angry and boring all of the time, but that's not important. What I have always loved the light, humorous air of teen-aged superhero comics.

It is totally Jason's fault that he was angry and boring all of the time, but that's not important. What matters is that Tim won his way into the Bat-Family through is amazingly detailed intelligence and thankfully-not-debilitating OCD. It is just awesome to see him interacting with other heroes his own age, most of whom did not in any way choose their lives. Tim is prepared for every eventuality while the others are--to a teen--the type to blaze in and ask questions never. He wears a second mask under his mask just in case he is dared to take it off during their truth or dare game. And yes, they play truth or dare, because they're sixteen and that's what sixteen-year-olds do. And I absolutely believe that that is not the only dare he prepared for in advance. He would never choose truth, but isn't it more than a little possible that he'd rehearsed his little speech about giving up being Robin happily when humankind is a utopia without crime or heartache? (Of course, this is more than a little sad given Certain Future Events involving People Who Don't Get Angsty Memorials In The Bat-Cave.) Perhaps he rehearsed more than that. Knowing Tim, I'm willing to believe that he had answers of that caliber to fifty or sixty questions, all designed to boost team morale and assist in the development of teamwork. I'm sure he also had swim trunks in case anyone suggested skinny dipping, a low level white noise generator in case anyone snored, and a gas mask in case the Scarecrow attacked the camp site for no reason.

    So much of this inspired the Young Justice TV show! For being over 20 years old, this is a fun book. I love young heroes working as a team, so this is up my alley, naturally. That said, it was a bit dated for me, and there was too much dialogue most of the time. I found myself skimming. 3.5/5 stars.

    Well, this was almost painfully dated. Oh, I still enjoyed it. I almost always like reading any of DC's teen hero books. But this would have been so much more amusing when it was written. Now, the references are dated, but not nearly as dated as the art. I'm sure it was quite serviceable at the time, but now... And I'll stay away from the clothes and hair. Still, I remember really liking it when it first came out. But put all that aside, and it's a fun, light weight teen superhero book. The chara Well, this was almost painfully dated.

The character interactions are realistic and, honestly, the best part of the book. We're watching teens who aren't necessarily compatible in the first place grow to become good friends and teammates. A lot of this will carry over into the characters' Teen Titans run, which I also remember liking at the time.

    Young Justice vol 1 is such a lighthearted and fun volume to read. I started reading this series as I it features prominently "Impulse", my favorite speedster and I was not disappointed . Not every story should be world-breaking and universe-shattering in order for it be great. My only problem with this volume is the ending of Young Justice 1.000.000. It was dark but tried it to pass it off as a joke. However, the future "Impulse" was amazing. Young Justice vol 1 is such a lighthearted and fun volume to read.

    After reading Young Justice: A League of Their Own I thought it was okay. I felt that the super villain's did not really seem all that powerful. I also felt that the team was not really challenged. The plot was okay, but not much to it. After reading Young Justice: A League of Their Own I thought it was okay.

    One star is reserved for books I can't even finish. This is sexist, the art is atrocious, and the plot isn't nearly compelling enough to make it worth it.

    Fun and lighthearted, probably a five star if you can get all the 90's pop-culture references more than I can. The characters seem to be respected too. Recommended.

    Extremely dated and pretty sexist. All the female characters feel like an after thought. There as a plot deviation to move the male characters story a long.

    Relegated to the Past or a Premier League of 90's Nostalgia? 3☆ means that it is average, it is an enjoyable read but nothing spectacular. DC Comic's Young Justice brand has seen a lot of renewed attention recently thanks mainly to two key things: The first was the critically and fan acclaimed 2010 animated TV show and the sudden and somewhat controversial move of Marvel creative powerhouse Brian Michael Bendis to DC. Apparently, part of Bendis' deal with DC to move was to allow him to revive the Relegated to the Past or a Premier League of 90's Nostalgia? 3☆ means that it is average, it is an enjoyable read but nothing spectacular. DC Comic's Young Justice brand has seen a lot of renewed attention recently thanks mainly to two key things: The first was the critically and fan acclaimed 2010 animated TV show and the sudden and somewhat controversial move of Marvel creative powerhouse Brian Michael Bendis to DC. Apparently, part of Bendis' deal with DC to move was to allow him to revive the Young Justice line and now, having done so, the run is receiving quite a positive reception as it manages to capture the "spirit of the original team". And whilst both of these things are good, in some cases excellent, they are not your Granddaddy's Young Justice. Okay, so maybe I'm being silly, 90's babies and what not are not quite that old but it is true to say that this Young Justice line is very different in tone from the current Young Justice renditions; it's not their fault, the 90's was just a weird time but it is easy to see why that tone came about when you look into the history of the book. Young Justice was created to fill a gap left by the Teen Titans (now grown up and just called "The Titans") and was DC's attempt to recreate that "down with the kids" teenage superhero team. And anyone who has worked or been a child (so everyone) knows how strange and different kids can be; slang, fads and general teenage culture is so fluid that what might be popular one year may completely disappear the next. I think this is where this book falls down a bit first, I personally love it for nostalgia reasons, but this comic is a relic of its age. An age where everything is "radical" and "awesome" and "extreme" to the point where some references genuinely no longer make sense for contemporary readers. It's difficult to know how much of this I would have enjoyed if I was not reading comics at the time it was released but I do know that this is not the only barrier to entry that contemporary readers may have when it comes to this comic line. As well as being a product of its time, Young Justice: A League of Their Own is the first major storyline for the Young Justice comic's run but it is not the first time that the team comes together which can be lost on readers who have not read these other one-off comics. The character's seem to know each other and make references that don't seem to make sense when you consider the fact that this is supposed to be an Issue #1 to #7 type deal. Without having read these two previous stories, the first being Young Justice: The Secret and JLA: A World Without Adults it can sometimes be quite head-spinning to keep up with this book. Even though all the character relationships are good, all the action is pretty solid and some of the story is interesting - there just always seems to be some nagging feeling in the back of your head that keeps asking for that last missing piece of context. However, even though these seem pretty high fences around getting to enjoy this book it is still rather enjoyable alone. As previously mentioned, the character interactions and development throughout the run is good and the book achieves its goal of being a light-hearted and positive look into the life of teenage crime fighting even going so far as to take breaks from the action to have things like camping trips to allow the kids to develop. I quite like it and, well, I must admit that 90's Superboy is like awesome but you can't neglect everything else because Superboy has a fade and a leather jacket. All in all, I don't think that this is essential reading. If you are looking for the prototype of Brian Michael Bendis' current Young Justice run then I can recommend reading this in order to see where he is coming from in terms of creative direction and tone. But if you are looking to dig into the history of the TV show, whilst the TV show makes some nods to the source material - to be fair - they are pretty different entities at this point and you would be more suited to reading the DC Rebirth Titans run for a similar tonal range.

    Peter David tackles the teen heroes of the DC Universe with his line-up of sidekicks. Initially featuring the Tim Drake Robin, the 90s Superboy clone, and future speedster Impulse, this volume reeks of all things 1990. Putting aside the cliched references (Yes, we ALL know Hanson sucks), the awfully-named villains ("Mighty Endowed?" "Fite'N Maad?" Ugh!) and riduculous concepts (trying to get an extradimensional flying bike to "choose" its owner), this volume shows the trappings of what would bec Peter David tackles the teen heroes of the DC Universe with his line-up of sidekicks.

In fact, many of the early storylines here - Tornado going rogue, the Super-Cycle, and the need for the JLA's approval - have made their way into the Young Justie animated series. Sadly, the missing discovery of Secret, the quick death of up-and-coming villain Harm, and lack of initial identity sends this collection back to the minor leagues.

From fighting bad guys from Kirby's Fourth World to that old JLA standby villain Despero, the team does so with good humor and impish behavior. This is not the team from the animated series, although pretty close. I read this digitally since the original trade paperback is hard to find and rather costly.

    Lots of fun. Young Justice find themselves a HQ, get named, and, shock horror, have girls on the team. This is simply a joy to read, immature superheroes running about and facing down bad guys. They also have a sentient bike. Great character stuff too, not surprising really considering who the author is. A very good read.

    I am a pretty big fan of the new Young Justice show right now so it was cool to see the original group in action. I personally prefer a brooding Superboy to the one that says "Tactile Telekinesis" in every issue but this run brings together a bunch of lovable characters with a set of silly story-lines that were fairly popular in the late 90's.

    Super campy or rather super cheesy should I say? I guess after reading Marvel I expected too much out of this book. I expected it to be a junior Justice League, but it's full of lame jokes, and a story that has more twists and turns. I got the impression that this book was also for a younger audience, so maybe that was another reason why I couldn't get into the boob jokes, and random shenanigans.

    This story has one word to describe it, fun. These comics have a energetic and bubbly personality to them. The story focuses on a group of young heroes (sidekicks) who go off on their own. You get the experience of friends, young love, and that you're never fully alone. No matter what mood I'm in these stories will leave me with a smile on my face.

    This was a light, goofy trade that I enjoyed for the most part. There were lots of lame attempts at humor and Superboy said "Tactile Telekenesis" at least 100 times. Not groundbreaking, but it was fun. This was a light, goofy trade that I enjoyed for the most part.

    The series gets a little clichéd at times, but most of those times the writers are aware of what they're doing. YJ has some emotional moments and some hilarious ones, and overall it's just a good fun time.

    Still not my favorite comics of the series....the first few issues are silly fun, but that's it. But the later issues in this volume show what the series will grow to be...silly fun mixed with deadly seriousness. It's a mix that works quite well and allows these characters to begin to develop.
