Dark Crisis: Young Justice #4 Review


Written by: Meghan Fitzmartin
Art by: Laura Braga, Luis Guerrero, and Pat Brosseau
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: September 20, 2022
Reviewed by: Jon Wayne
WTF can anyone say about this book at this point? In a series that should be nothing but fun, I’m having absolutely none. I’ve said it before but Meghan Fitzmartin, a woman with a very thin track record in comics, was miscast as the writer here on a book as big as this one. She has consistently bitten off more than she can chew in terms of the meta-commentary, and it has never really landed in a way that makes sense, or that helps progress the story. But clearly “progressing the story” is a foreign concept to Fitzmartin because with only two issues left we’re going nowhere fast.

We're continuing our Dark Crisis tie-ins with this issue of The Flash and while I really thought that the Search For Barry Allen was our only tie-in for this title, it does make sense to continue on because since this series acknowledged Dark Crisis it would be silly to just go back to doing normal Flash things when we know that Deathstroke and his Secret Society are causing chaos all over the world. Now that Barry Allen has been freed from his dream world prison and is teaming up with Hal Jordan to free the rest of the Justice League it's time to see how the rest of the Flash Family are dealing with the Dark Crisis on the home front. Let's jump into this issue and check it out.
