Review: ★★★☆☆

Youngblood continues its new run with Diehard, the president of the new world. This issue focuses on the choices Diehard has to deal with after Bedrock and Shaft join the New Youngblood. The new crew has been trying to stop people who have been enslaving enhanced humans. The book isn’t full of action due to more political implications with the story. The story sort of shows the anxiety that Diehard experiences with his choices. It subtly points out the dependence of people and their hand-held devices. Jim Towe’s art isn’t exactly stand out but it does the trick well enough to tell this tale. I think that this book might be stronger if we could get a better sense of what could be lost. The super hero aspect of the story is a tad lost here, but it could be building to something bigger.
