Recommends it for: DC junkies with intact funny bones
This is a confection in the form of a massive comic crossover. As with all crossovers, art varies, and background for some sections must be inferred, but for anyone who loves the DC universe and can stand to laugh at it, it's amazingly good fun.

Fans of teenage heroes Young Justice will enjoy seeing them step up to their increased responsibilities, and the childish and adolescent versions of the larger (adult) superteams bring all those teams' subtexts and dirty laundry to the surface to make mud

This is a fun but disjointed and at times directionless little trade collecting what may be one of the most inconsequential crossovers in the history of DC - a fluffy, cute, occasionally serious what-if-style story (but not an elseworlds!) If you like the JLA, the JSA, the Teen Titans or Young Justice (not the new one. No, the older one that started in the 90s) they're all here and having some amusing, sometimes absurd adventures.

The tale looks at an event where an aging ray and the magic of Kla

Reseña de Daniel Gavilán para Zona Negativa:

Antología básica de Peter David 7: Young Justice
A mediados de los años 90, DC Comics se dio cuenta de los Jóvenes Titanes ya estaban demasiado cuajados para hacer encajar con el primer adjetivo de su cabecera, así que decidió crear a un nuevo grupo de superhéroes adolescentes. Con un tono mucho más distendido y cómico que sus predecesores, la divertida serie protagonizada por Tim Drake, Superboy (quien te ha vist

Everyone gets turned into kids, except the kids, who get turned into adults.

Best. Plotline. Ever. Crisis on Infantile Earths indeed.

As I continue my re-read of DC events series in TPB (where available) I am struck by the up and down quality of the stories. While this event spun out of a storyline in Peter David's excellent Young Justice series, the story here is at best average. Perhaps, the best explanation is that to pull of an event like this (about 20 single issues all in one week) required a lot of editorial control and bringing in additional writers. The humor and humanity that marked Young Justice is absent from much ...more

Recommends it for: Only hardcore YJ fans for their edumacation
I love 90's Young Justice. But this arc was a hot mess. I only loved the beginning, Batboy and Robin and the end; everything else, excluding the decent Wonder Girl and Impulse issues, just sucked. Lagoon Boy and Aquaman are insufferable and I loathed the art in the Superboy/Superman issue. If you're not a hardcore fan of Young Justice, it's best to avoid this arc completely.

Also, tis a mark of how little I care for this arc that I don't even remember when I finished reading it. It's definitely n

Baby batman is the cutest thing. Also, Match appears!
I'm impressed that a comic that is mostly just middleschool humor and puns (and amazing 90's fashion) manages to be hardhitting and socially relevant even now. This era of young justice is much more satisfying than the current version (although I enjoy that as well) and I'm really bummed there's so little of it to consume.

Lots of things to like here. Between the normal heroes being de-aged, our teen heroes getting aged up, Klaroin the Witch Boy's enjoyable characterisation, and the threads running through this book, it's great from cover to cover. The art feels dated, but other than that I really enjoyed it.

Fun but a tad confusing. Superheroes become teenagers, and the teenage superheroes become adults. There are some very nice character moments here, especially with Robin. Interesting, seeing all the adults behave like kids. There's also some laugh out loud moments.

Spent too much time on characters I didn't really care about and not enough time with the core four of YJ and their de-aged mentors. What we did get of them was fun, but the story could have done more with them. De-aged Superman was especially irritating.
