Reviews Young Avengers, Volume 2

  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)
    (3.5) I enjoyed this, but I didn't love it as much as the first volume. The beginning portion dragged a bit, but it does get super exciting towards the middle. I think what makes this series so great is the characters. I've never felt strongly about any comic book character, but then the young avengers came into my life and changed that. THEY GIVE ME LOTS OF FEELINGS. I also really appreciated the unique panels throughout this trade. I like seein...

    3.5 starsPretty cool, especially considering I walked into volume 2 without getting to read the first one.Big Thank You! to whoever orders comics for my library...So, somebody (something) named Mother has nefarious plans for this group of teenagers, and ends up leading them on a long wild goose chase throughout parallel universes. Wiccan and Hulkling were an interesting couple, as were Kate Bishop and Noh-Varr. I actually found Kate and Noh-Varr ...

    Young Avengers Volume 2 is more of the same from the first volume, which is a great thing as the first volume (album?) was so good. The YA have been chased away from Earth by Mother, and are pursuing Patriot (who’s not really Patriot) who’s leading them on a merry chase between dimensions after taking their friend. I pointed it out in my review of the first volume but I love that the story of this series is basically teens fighting with paren...

    I knew it!! I'm really enjoying this comic series. Sad I've only one more to go though.
  • Sesana
    So, so good. If you haven't already read the previous Young Avengers series or Gillen's Journey into Mystery run, do yourself a favor and pick them up. I don't think you'll get nearly as much out of this Young Avengers series if you haven't. For those of us who come properly versed in the backstories, this is just good stuff. The characters, the story, the art, it all works together. I love how the characters feel like the teens they really are, ...

    Re-reading this series and this is even better than the first volume. This one made me want a live action Netflix show even more! The hints at their adventures in other universes wasn't enough for me. I wanted to see so much more of them interacting with the other versions of themselves. Marvel has never given me enough of the multiverse!I forgot how much I loved Kid Loki :) Also, it's such a shame America's solo couldn't bring the same magic tha...

    <3 Maybe I'll come back and write a review later. Right now I need to recover and buy the 3rd volume.
  • Leo
    3.5/5So, I was a bit dissapointed with this volume. Don't get me wrong, it's really good but after the strong end of volume one, I expected to like this even more and I liked a little less. The main problem is that the book starts with a whole issue that introduces two new (at least new for those of us who only have read the first volume) characters. There's David aka. Prodigy, a mutant who can collect skills and abilities from people and Tommy, ...
  • Cat (cat-thecatlady)
    I still find the story kinda confusing. it's so abstract. but the art is amazing. and the characters. and I'm a sucker for Billy and Teddy, so sue me (don't please)full review soon
  • Abi (The Knights Who Say Book)
    Alright, a slightly more comprehensible review now that it is not midnight!I love things about this comic. I really do. I'm interested in whatever the hell is going on with Loki, even though I still lack all the backstory for why he's a teen now. I love when it does weird, cool panels for different dimensions. And I could not be more thrilled with Prodigy joining the team and coming out as bi!Some criticisms, though:The whole mother parasite, pro...
  • Bárbara
    This one isn't only a dynamic set of issues on its own, it also sets the scene nicely for what's to come in the conclusion (conclusion I don't want to think about- but will face as an adult nonetheless). Each issue only manages to cement the notion that Young Avengers (and Kieron Gillen's run specifically) is my favorite comic series.
  • Mike
    Not feeling it as strongly with this volume. Maybe I'm just feeling down or bloaty, so it may entirely be on me not on this collection, but all the inventive fresh stuff feels kinda stale to me - maybe because it's stuff I'm not that invested in. Like the arcane music references - just don't really care, tho I'm aware many will think this is the shit.Or the tumblr ripoff they're using for most of the intro pages - yay, it just feels a bit tedious...

    'Who are you?''Your ticket to the multiverse, princess.'Oh man, this is one fast-paced volume! The team traveling to all the dimensions is so great (America getting to use her powers to do so is just badass) and the art is amazing. Especially loved that one page with Kid Loki's Instagram posts. David is a great addition to the team (and bi at that so bonus points for that). America threatening Loki every chance she gets is so amusing. Trouble in...
  • Pamela
    This series by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie makes me want to dance around the hilltops like Maria, singing about how much I adore it. Thankfully for the world, I won't do that, because I can't sing. What can I say about this besides: AHHH SO GOOD? In this volume, Speed (Wiccan's brother) is kidnapped by someone who looks like Patriot but isn't. Witness to the crime, ex-X-Men trainee Prodigy tracks down the Young Avengers at their favorite bre...

    I start reading and find I've finished before I realize...then need to immediately keep reading more. Fellow comic geeks, drop all your current comparatively crappy books and start this one right now!

    Alternatif dünya konusunu çok eğlenceli bulsamda şu Teddy'nin bad mama konusunun devam etmesinden çokta hoşlanmadım. Zaten bu üç ciltlik bir seriydi. Tamamiyle konu bu üzerine mi olacak ? Umarım olmaz demek isterdim ama sonundan dolayı da öyle olacağına benziyor.

    5/5 starsThis is the second volume of the new Young Avengers series, collecting issues #6 to #10, and I don’t really think I need to say that this is excellent. This review is going to be quite spoiler-y, because I’m just so… So. So much so. Words.David Alleyne is introduced in this one, and Tommy makes his triumphant return as Speed- a very brief return, sure, but a return none-the-less. (view spoiler)[Tommy insults Billy, David and him go...
  • Shannon Appelcline
    This comic continues to be crazy, wacky, and totally readable. It's perhaps a bit too decompressed as we get through a whole TPB without much being revealed ... but it's really enjoyable to be strung along as you go. My favorite issue here was the first, dealing with Prodigy and Speed, but I enjoyed the rest as well and desperately want to read the next and (sadly!) last volume.
  • Cori Reed
    3.5 Stars!I definitely didn't love this volume as much as the first, but it was still very fun, and the art is just stunning. I am sad that there is only one more volume, and I'm thinking maybe I'm going to have to dive into Marvel a little bit more!
  • Andrew Greatbatch
    Loki you little shit.The writing of this is so clever. Loving this run. Thank you, library.
  • Valeska
    Después de mucho pude darme el tiempo de terminarlo. Me gustó demasiado (como siempre); apenas pueda seguiré leyendo más!

    The art wasn't as good this time, but still a fun story!!!

  • Katlyn
    so many Billy / Teddy feels. despite these feels, I really liked the exploration of their relationship in the volume. like, when your boyfriend can alter reality, how do you know your feelings are your own? the "break up" (because let's be real, it's temporary) page was so well done. the lack of dialog with narration from Teddy was super effective. I also continue to love the drawing of the mother verse (I loved the panel break out from the last ...

    (3.5)AHH- the artwork, the heartache, the danger, the plot-twistsand that last chapter, with metanarration material that really gave me chills.gillen is such a rhetoric genius, I don't think I'll ever get enough of his work.faves:Marvel Boy - "No, Kate Bishop of Earth, I will stand by the side of you and your friends. For you promised to explain the earth custom known as 'hot make out'."Loki - "When the time comes, remember -- so many worlds. So ...
  • Bill
    The Kieron/McKelvie run of "Young Avengers" continues with another fun story arc involving the team bouncing around dimensions in classic Marvel style, encountering worlds rife with the worst versions of themselves -- reminds me of some of the first "Excalibur" arcs or various other reality-hopping adventures. Along the way, they make a new ally, learn to master their powers and work as a team, and confront their drama about regrets, relationship...
