Crises have always had devastating impacts on the generation of heroes that make up Young Justice, and Dark Crisis will hit them even harder. Tim Drake, Impulse, and Superboy go missing during the Justice League’s funeral. The only person concerned enough to find them? Cassie Sandsmark, a.k.a Wonder Girl. But…the three boys of Young Justice aren’t on this Earth anymore…they’re on the world of their dreams, one they may never want to leave!
After the events that wiped out the Justice League the world is hero-less and people are desperately seeking protection from the perils of this universe. Young Justice are stepping to the plate a supergroup of super off spring with the task of keeping Earth safe but all they want to do right now is grieve and work through the pain they are feeling but there is no time for tears.
During the state funeral of the Justice League some strange events unfold that sees Superboy, Tim Drake and Impulse vanish suspiciously and transported to another world Cassie – Wonder Girl – takes it upon her self to find the three, but on the flip side do they need saving?
Meghan Fitzmartin has created a“What If?” style of story. Putting Robin, Superboy and Impulse in to a pivotal moment from DC’s history. Bewildering the characters and thrusting back in to the midst of a universe spanning event alongside the characters they have barely had time to grieve. It’s equal parts fascinating and thrilling in this opening part of the story.
Laura Braga’s illustration are bold and brash, perfectly fitting the Young Justice aesthetic. In the opening pages Braga brings the emotional weight of grieft to the Young Justice world. As the trio of characters are thrust back in time, Braga is able to get in to the middle of a well-documented and much-loved part of DC history, to which she brings an incredibly vibrant visual style.
A solid start to the Young Justice tie-in to the Dark Crisis event. A intriguing mystery which plays in to nostalgia for a bygone era of comics. Playing with the idea of legacy, I’m intrigued to see how Dark Crisis: Young Justice will play in to the wider event.
