    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 5, 2015

    Overall, the comic is solid, and the reason I gave this a "buy" as opposed to the other Point One out this week is that this one looks like it really is the beginning of a greater story as opposed to just teasing a bunch. Not a bad start, not bad at all. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 5, 2015

    There's a lot going on in Avengers #0, but by and large, what's great is that Marvel is showing how diverse the team's concepts can be. There are premises and art styles for a variety of different readers, and for the most part, there's a level of competence that makes all of these books feel like contenders in an already crowded marketplace. For my money, All-New All-Different Avengers and Uncanny Avengers feel like the best books of the bunch, but I wouldn't put it past a writer as skilled as Al Ewing to make me like his books, even when I'm not a huge fan of the artists involved. Either way, it's no longer an Avengers world - it's something much bigger than that. And it's a universe I'm very much looking forward to exploring. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 5, 2015

    Avengers #0 is a mixed bag of teasers, with some winners and a couple that missed the mark for me. I will be trying several of these titles out when the #1s drop, and if you're looking for a taste of what is to come for the Avengers line, give #0 a look. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Harrison Rawdin Oct 9, 2015

    Avengers #0 proves to be a really likable starting point for a universe of heroes that really stand eager and ready to find more than a few dedicated fanboys or fangirls out there. So by all means pick this up and find out which roster deserves attention. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Tom Bacon Oct 7, 2015

    All in all, this does exactly what you'd expect; it introduces you to the Avengers books post-"Secret Wars". None of its particularly ground-breaking as a comic goes, but then it's not meant to be; the book's meant to whet your appetite, and it achieves its goal rather well. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Matt Lehn Oct 12, 2015

    Clocking in at fifty-one big story pages and a six dollar price tag, Avengers #0 is an undertaking akin to crossing a double album with "TV Guide Fall Previews". As a publication, its individual merits may be many but there's a distinct lack of centrality. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 6, 2015

    Those bold enough to purchase "Avengers" #0 are sure to find at least a couple stories to satisfy their interests. As a sampler anthology, "Avengers" #0 gives readers more than enough to make informed decisions for the upcoming half-dozen related titles, especially with each creative team checking in. It's not a necessity for all Avengers fans, but it certainly is a nice luxury that contains relevant, polarizing tales for the All-New All-Different Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Oct 6, 2015

    Overall, Marvel have put some great new talent on their Avengers line, and while having so many Avengers books is certainly polarizing, this book does a great job breaking down the major differences of each book and helping unsure fans find their way to the book that suits them. The book is not as new reader friendly as one might expect,with elements of original avengers stuff, secret wars fallout (some of which won't even make sense to those reading the comics currently, for obvious reasons) influencing the books, plus the price is off-putting for what is essentially FCBD-esque preview material, but it should offer something for Avengers fans for all types. If you're looking for some guidance into the new Avengers line, Avengers #0is your go to book if you're willing to stump up the cash. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Adam Frey Oct 8, 2015

    I will note that between this book andANAD Point One, Marvel is showing alot of post-Secret Wars impact on each title. Four out of six of the stories in this title were dealing withSecret Wars fallout, as didone of the shorts inPoint One and a few in Amazing Spider-Man. Let's hope this doesn't keep going for too long. The "All-New, All-Different" rebranding was advertised as a clean break for Marvel to be friendly to new readers, but this is all very heavily tied to what came before. That's good for long-term readers, but hopefully it doesn't alienate the intended new readers too much. Read Full Review

    So, lots to choose from, but you don't get enough of a sample here to decide which one is most worthy of your hard-earned $3.99. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Oct 8, 2015

    Less is more. It would be great to see Marvel scale back the Avengers franchise so that it is not stretched so far that it loses its core qualitiesand no longer becomes something that is special or interesting. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Gregory Paul Silber Oct 6, 2015

    If you're a completist and plan on getting any of the comics previewed here anyway, you may find something worthwhile, and even a few pleasant surprises, in Avengers #0. If you're just looking for great stories from a sampling of some of the top names in superhero comics, though, you're likely to be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Oct 8, 2015

    With the exception of the superbly emotional piece by Mark Waid and Mahmud Asrar, featuring a devastating moment between the Vision and Scarlet Witch, unless you have a particular affinity with any of these characters, there's just simply too little told too briefly here to base any financial decisions on.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Oct 7, 2015

    As far as preview books go, this was all right. There are some hits in here, but there also appears to be some misses. Avengers #0 is honestly a book that you don't really need to buy, and with a $5.99 price tag, it would be difficult to blame anyone for passing. This is a book for people who haven't paid attention to the Marvel Universe last year. Read Full Review
