They say you can never go home. For the Young Avengers, that's not true. They can go home — it's just that if they do, the universe may end. The team takes on the gig to save reality, but is Kate Bishop an enemy in waiting? Will Noh-Varr get an arrow through the head? And is this the end of the loveable/strangle-able Kid Loki? As the Young Avengers take on "the Young Aveng ...more

I'm so sad this series is over! THE ARTWORK WAS PHENOMENAL in this volume. I mean, it's honestly been great throughout the whole series, but I feel like they upped the game for this one! I loved seeing how they resolved the issue at hand and it was also nice seeing the aftermath of everything. I highly recommend checking out this comic book series if you're looking to get into comics. I know they're hard to find, but they're SO worth the read.

This sort of sums up this entire run...

Unfortunately, now it's over.
Oh well, better to go out in a blaze of glory, right?

This volume wraps up our time with the Young Avengers, and ushers in the beginnings of Loki: Agent of Asgard, Vol. 1: Trust Me.
Like always, I accidentally read everything out of order, and even that didn't have much of an effect on how much I enjoyed this limited run.

Mother has captured Hulking, so the majority of the issues revolve around the team trying to find a way to

I'm very sad that Young Avengers has come to an end, again. But it is better to have a relatively short, intentionally finite run than to let things drag on and on until everything gets tired. Hopefully, another talented team will take on these characters in the future and we'll get to see more of them. Or maybe not, and this will be how we last see them. I would be ok with that, because it's a great ending. It brings everything together and resolves what needs to be resolved, while leaving open ...more

Writing a review of a third volume in a series that’s been as consistent in quality as Young Avengers is really easy. If you haven’t enjoyed the previous two volumes then you’re not going to read the third (and final) volume to this limited series and if you have then you’re going to love this one like you did the other two. Simple as, really, but let’s do this anyway!

I love this comic. And it makes me sad that it can't go on forever, but all good runs have to end eventually. It's about characters growing from their teens into their early twenties who have super powers, whilst at the same time dealing with their relationships with each other and their parents. There's drama, kissing, some super hero action and more kissing. Especially at the after party, there is A LOT OF KISSING. It's a pop comic set within the Marvel Universe, and both Gillen and Mckelvie h ...more

4.5 stars.

Such a bummer this one was the farewell. The art changed like three or four times in one of the last issues and that sucked. McKelvie is such a beautiful artist and I wish I knew why they chose to give Kate, America, David and Noh-Varr's POVs different art.

Anyway, I'm not entirely sure why this series ended. It was so great! The characters were so memorable and they were just getting started! I loved what they did with Loki and his arc was wonderful. Although, rereading this, I realiz
'Wait -- hold up! Am I the only person on the team who's straight?'
'Princess. I've seen the way you look at me. You're not that straight.'

I have to say, some of the panels in this volume are simply stunning. I loved the way how Billy's powers are incorporated into the artwork as a landscape, it's always a delight to see America punching holes in reality and all the action scenes, really. However, I hated the art change starting at the beginning of issue 14 even though I knew it was coming and ju

ok, unpopular opinion over here... I'm incredibly disappointed with this book.

the art is absolutely flawless but if a story isn't good enough to entertain, a graphic novel becomes nothing. this last title gave a poor conclusion to the plot it's been telling in the past issues. it was oddly unsatisfying and so so boring. everything felt rushed and nothing had the time to have some depth added. and the plot is still so confusing. the actions are simple but the dialog is totally incomprehensible at

Every single page was like a work of art. I was blown away by the graphics here.
Yes. So good. Literally every thing I may not have loved in the previous two volumes was fixed in here, which made for an even better reading experience. This arc finished with a bang that was super satisfying and had a lot of payoff! I felt like each of the characters finally had a good balance of attention, and each of their plots was genuinely interesting to me. I desperately want to see more of this group together! The ONLY thing I wasn't loving was the art style used in America's backstory, ...more

The final volume of Kieron's run on Young Avengers and it ends strong.

This time Loki's entire plan comes out in the open. This is dealing with Mother and Loki deal and it's twisted turns. Watching the group find out the truth, and go to save their friend, only to find out Loki is the backstabbing person we'd expect him to be is kind of heartbreaking. Then we have two final issues here of a goodbye to the Young Avengers and it mostly is one big party of everyone talking to each other.

I really love how Marvel publishes stuff like this where everyone is queer and gay love saves the day, and at the same time they thought "eh, captain america was secretly a nazi" was a good idea, like...can I have some of the stuff you're having?
seriously tho, this was a lot of fun and I love how everyone is just...their gayest selves....amazing

This was my favorite volume. It was emotional all over, and the characters (except Noh-Var, who got royally screwed and I can never forgive that; and Patriot, who I never really liked in the first place) got a wonderful wrap to their arcs. I am particularly a fan of the work that was done with Teddy, Loki and Billy's individual arcs. My boys grew so nicely, I'm like a proud aunt <3

I honestly think I enjoyed the reread even more than the first time around, and that is to say something, because I

I rather like the way things ended in this final volume of Young Avengers. Some of the ending points are a little bittersweet, but it all feels right. I liked this volume more than the second volume. The pacing was better in this one. I did feel like some of the characters didn't have much of an arc in terms of character development. We get a glimpse of America's backstory and David's was almost nonexistent. Even so, I did enjoy the chemistry between this cast of characters. I'd love to see them ...more

AAAAAHHH THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING!! I’m so happy this volume (in like the last three pages) confirms that America’s a lesbian, Noh-Varr and Loki “don’t have labels” but aren’t straight, and that Kate is probably also not straight (plus we already had two gay boys and one bi boy confirmed in the first two volumes), but in terms of plot? Ughhh. Only sometimes made sense. It’s a real up and down ride with some cool artwork but plenty of frustration.

The Young Avengers series has been a blast!

There are many things I've loved about this series! I wish it could go on and on and the crew that participated can create more marvel comics in the future!

There was one thing that made me sad towards the end (and that was kind of my ship sinking *cries*) but other than that, I really liked this series - A LOT!

Nice finish to the series, wrapped up very well and I still love these characters. Mostly. Honestly, Billy is just too angsty for me. But the rest of them are great. ... Did I mention I adore America? Because I do. And Loki. ... Neither of which really surprises me.

The end of this fifteen-issue run was fun. Not great, not emotional, just a fun read that magically closed all the doors it had opened. Also, we got robbed of many more pages starring America, she was the best character in the book by far.

OHMYGOD OHMYGOD OHMYGOD. I need a second here. I really, really need a second here. This was the best comic book I've read in a while. And I do think I read a lot of comic books. The resolution was incredible, the plot twists were both fun and amazing, and the ending is just. I can't. I need air. What is air. How do I get air. Who do I have to pay to get my air back.

Starts super strong, fumbles it in the second volume, a little, and then... fizzle. This one fell so flat for me. Also, what's with the bizarre final issue??? The "nobody is straight" reveal comes out of nowhere, diminishes the notability of the Teddy/Billy relationship, and feels so forced and weird and pointless that one of the characters has to hang a lantern on it. What a waste of pages.

I felt like this was more a showcase for the characters than a real story, and the plot resolution felt fo

This, like HAWKEYE, looks amazing. But too bad the scripts are slip-shod. Or at the vert least, they fall into the shorthand category of zero explanation. Suddenly, the backstory of Miss America, perhaps my favorite character in the volume, is given a 2-page origin that comes out of nowhere and with no explanation of how it actually happened.

Ultimately, I should not have to read the text piece at the beginning of a comic or its Wikipedia page to understand/ follow the actual book. And too many
