I can't pick rocketeer because you know for a fact that will just be as difficult to find. If only it was a godzilla week. :-(

I want to pick it. I think it's an incredibly strong mini. But I apparently need 2 reviews other than my own and fourthy to shut the fuck up about supposedly not being able to find a marvel book.

I'd pick rocketeer but honestly, I'm pretty sure it's 10 times harder to find a new #1 IDW title than it is to find a #4 from one of the big two.

Notice how the bitching and arguing quotient went up like 200% when Fourthman returned?

Who's Fourthman? Is He The Black Hand To Our DC Universe?

The guy with the Elijah Snow avatar and the Orange username.

He's more like Larfleeze.

This was good, it probably should have been called Fear Itself: The Initiative or something though, because it really is a follow-up to that book.

Fear Itself: Youth in revolt #1

I like Sean McKeever, I think he has put out some quality stuff in the past. Sadly this is not an example of that.

The book suffers from a few different problems, one of which is that it is not very accessible to new readers, which is terrible for a mini. They reference stuff that happened in young allies, they reference stuff from the initiative, they reference stuff from the new warriors from long ago, heck they even reference last weeks review group pick. All in all it makes you feel like you missed out on some important aspects of the story. Another issue is that I have no clue who this prodigy person is, and since his costume is ridiculous I hope he dies in the course of this book.

Aside from that the hook just isn't interesting, I see no villains in this and cliffhanger is yawn inducing. I really don't care if Thor girl goes to jail over some silly misunderstanding, but I feel like this plot should be in a sitcom rather than a comic book.

The art serviced the story okay, but the cover is hideous. I looked everywhere to see the Liefeld signature but I couldn't find it.

Art 3
Story 2

overall 2.5

I will not finish this series.

So next week is the Hawkeye book after all? Jerks! :x

Also, oddly enough, I couldn't find Youth in Revolt at the shop I went to.
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".
