CBR Review: Young Liars #18

I recently reviewed Young Liars #18 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "That’s that then. Young Liars has finished and we’re all poorer for it. A brilliant, challenging, ambitious, audacious, flat-out insane series that, let’s be honest, lasted longer than anyone really thought it would, but is still taken before it’s time. Nothing new about that, I’ve had it happen to me at least once a year for the past decade, that’s life in the fast-paced, high-risk, hope-and-pray-quality-catches-on world of professional comic books. Still, that doesn’t make it any easier. In fact, quite the opposite. Reading the final issue of Young Liars is a knife in the guts, a reminder that this is it, no more next month, enjoy these 22 pages, because that’s all you’re getting. It’s a good thing that David Lapham crafted a brilliant, challenging, ambitious, audacious, flat-out insane comic to end with. Who would expect anything less?"
