firstly, I'm not only impressed that Bendis held an affinity for YJ, but im extra impressed that he was able to bring them back as close to their 90s incarnations as possible.

YJ is such an odd book that amassed a cult following. It essentially was a Teen Superhero book about nothing. And that became its charm.

It wasn't a huge seller during its original run. Other than "Sins of Youth", had no other crossovers (and Sins of Youth had little to no lasting effects in the DCU as a whole). It wasnt really a critical darling. I don't think its even been regarded as one of Voldemorts best works.

Yet it really maintains a very loyal following. Pretty much the 90s version of the Wolfman-Perez Titans, without the melodrama.

And even more ironic that the cartoon of the same name has pretty much the same level of acclaim and wasnt really a smash hit either.
