• Ever wonder what the super hero equivalent of a terrible soul-sucking talent-wasting temp job is? You haven’t? Oh go on. Actually, don’t. We’ve done it for you and written a story about it. This one.

• Wonder what Tommy (aka Speed) has been up to? Discover herein.

• Wonder why mutant David Alleyne (aka Prodigy) hasn’t been even in the background in any one of the eight thousand X-books? Discover that herein too.

• Existential horror turns cosmic horror as something emerges from the shadows of the past. It seems the Young Avengers have yet one more thing to worry about.

  1. Woohoo! Been waiting for this one! All these covers are so great too!

  2. No Mckelvie art this issue, just googled Kate Brown and seems to have a similar style to Becky Cloonan. Looking forward to reading this as always.

  3. speed, finally! he was one of my favorite characters in the original one and I always thought that he was underused there as well. (although I shouldn’t get my hopes up of him joining the team I guess)

  4. This is the comfort food read of the month for me! It’s just…simple, yet so good! Just like eating a peanut-butter/jelly sandwich! 😀

  5. If there’s a more young, hip, fresh book out there I don’t know what it is. So much to like about this. The opening with the file folders, the funny tech support moments talking to heroes in various situations… this series is so creative and artistic.

    • The opening section of tech support had me laughing out loud as I stood in line at my comic shop. “Ninjas, you can’t help them.”

  6. Can somebody tell me WTF was supposed to have happened at the end of this issue?
