Young Justice #16
DC Comics (July, 2012)“COMMON DENOMINATORS” WRITERS: Kevin Hopps & Greg Weisman ARTIST: Christopher Jones COLORIST: Zac Atkinson LETTERER: Dezi Sienty ASSISTANT EDITOR: Sarah Gaydos EDITOR: Jim Chadwick
Robin, Kid Flash, and Artemis join their mentors in tracking down criminals from the same group. Who are they and what are they after?
What they got right: There are no attempts to set up events in the cartoon that have long since happened and have no bearing on the current story, a problem with the previous story arc. I like seeing the YJ’s working with their JL mentors.
What they got wrong: I really have nothing to add here. This was a really good story.
Recommendation: This is one of the best hero team-up stories I’ve read in a while, at least since the New 52. If you remember a time when DC heroes were fun to read about and want those days back, support this title whether you have kids or watch the show or neither.
What, you thought I was going for the “top of the world” joke? Been done to death.
