    So a nice relief from the heavy-duty doings in the maxi-series, as it's all in good fun. Read Full Review

    The art is by comic legend Walt Simonson. It is above reproach. The man is a God and we should all tend to bowing down before his greatness. It’s just too bad he’s being wasted on filler issues. Read Full Review

    That headache aside, this issue does have a very real argument between Hawkeye and Spider-Woman that addresses both his playboy lifestyle and the source of her problems with men. The art features layouts by Walter Simonson and finishes by Scott Hanna, a gifted inker who gives this book just what it needs to be action packed and humorous at the same time. Not once was I irritated by the elongated talk-fighting scene, and that's saying something. Read Full Review

    While the Avengers & the X-Men fighting the Phoenix Force is the main event, this undercard fight was one of the more interesting ones. This title's whole run during AvX has been one of the more interesting tie-ins, and for the most part each stand alone story contained in this issue has acted as a good supplement to the main storyline. But now that we're presented with the ending in this book, we may be entering one last arc before the end of AvX and the beginning of Marvel NOW, and I think it'll be a good one. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Sep 19, 2012

    Whilst it has little to do with AvX it is clear with the last few pages that it is attempting to build towards to the end of Bendis' and the volume. Thankfully it managed to do a much better job of telling a different story and ignoring AvX than New Avengers did last week. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Eric Scroggs Sep 21, 2012

    While the story is only so-so, Walt Simonson's art continues to impress. Particularly his action scenes and a gorgeous two-page spread that he can draw in his sleep. Despite not being wowed with this issue, it is far from horrible. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle Sep 19, 2012

    Yeah, I agree Mr. Neggy… It's a little unbelievable that we also have to listen to these two people needing to either screw each other or break up while they take out your army and punch you in the face. Talk about rubbing salt in the wounds. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Sep 24, 2012

    It's fair to say that Bendis and Simonson have produced better than this, and recently. "Avengers" #30 fails as a tie-in and on its own terms. There was a good idea at the core of the issue, but it's been so poorly executed that it outright ruins the issue. Unless you're a completest, you can safely avoid this one. Read Full Review
