Young Justice #5

There's much to like about the latest issue of Young Justice as our heroes, now finally reunited, break out of the prison in Gemworld and begin their fight against Lord Opal. Along with the clever banter and strong action of the moment, the comic also offers another flashback to Robin's day leading up to being transported to another dimension. And this gives us Tim Drake and Stephanie Brown together making out in front of the Hall of Justice. This is so damn good. If Brian Michael Bendis can find a way to put Stephanie Brown in her Batgirl suit in this reality I just might lose my shit.

The flashbacks also include an appearance by Zatanna whose magic helps Robin tap into suppressed memories about the previous Young Justice team (and the best friend he has forgotten). While his journey with the other heroes was unexpected, Robin was already on the case seeking answers about the forgotten memories and lost friends.

The heroes are still stuck in Gemworld, and they have a few obstacles to work through before they make it home. That said, I'm really looking forward to see where things go from here. Worth a look.
