Young Justice #16
Impulse spent all last issue telling Superboy that he's not from this universe, where he came from, and how he got there. When all is said and done, Impulse was on his way home, when Superboy appeared before him and pulled the old switch-a-roo!
This is not a book that you should read while the TV is on. That or any other “background noise” is going to throw you off a bit. Translation: This is a comic that you have to pay attention to. Writers Brian Michael Bendis and David Walker give us a really deep dive into……a lot of things. First and foremost is Bart Allen. We learn a lot of things about where Bart has been and what he’s been up to and where he should’ve been and what he should’ve been doing. Bendis and Walker really throw some surprised into this issue, but it might be a few too many, as there were times that I got a little confused. By the end of the issue, I was on the right track (I think!) and ready to move forward. While I would’ve liked to see more members of the team, it really would’ve been hard to do and still tell the story as effectively as they did. It’s a solid story with lots of intrigue, mystery, and superheroing.
Artist Scott Godlewski really outdoes himself this issue. Even though it’s a story told by one character, for the most part, he has a lot to draw, and he doesn’t take any shortcuts. What impressed me the most this issue was Godlewski’s willingness to explore the page These are far from your standard 6-panel pages. The action goes all over the place, and it needs to based on the story. Godlewski really excels at breathing new life into the standard superhero comic book when it comes to art.
Altogether a great issue, and a nice change of pace from the regular style of comic book storytelling. A fun read, but a little on the heavy side, but the weighty story only adds to the enjoyment,
