Dark Crisis: Young Justice #6 Review

   

   
Writer: Meghan Fitzmartin
Art team: Laura Braga, Luis Guerrero, and Pat Brosseau

Still, now that we have finally reached the end of this dumpster fire, my gloves are coming off: Meghan Fitzmartin is a hack who can't write herself out of a paper bag and shouldn't be allowed near DC comics characters ever again.
