Review By Philip Clark
Young Justice #6 brings us the conclusion of the first story arc, and what an ending it is! Last issue things got a little complicated, as the team escaped the prisons of, then fought, the Dark Lord Opal. During the fight, Gemworld shifted around them.
Things continue on from that point in this issue as the new group of young heroes try to figure out what’s going on. Sticking together, and fighting against the villain. The team faces the consequences of their actions, and the issue ends with a massive cliff-hanger!
Gems And Consequences
What I love about this issue, and this run, is that there are always consequences, which play a large part in Brian Bendis’ writing. I really like the idea of actions having consequences, especially for young heroes to contend with. It’s a very interesting concept, and when they’re this well written, provide an excellent read. There’s some wonderful dialogue with Teen Lantern about the consequences of her actions, and Amethyst is also warned to be careful of what she’s doing. Teenagers.
Gemworld is an absolutely fantastic setting, one I hope we get to come back to.
Bendis has done a brilliant job at writing this first storyline. Young Justice #6 has everything, from mystery to humour. The artwork across the whole run so far has been brilliant and I’ve loved how Gemworld is represented, especially the contrast between Dark Lord Opal’s lands and the rest of the planet.
I’m very excited to see what Bendis has in store for the young heroes next!
