    Hero Nuggets - Joe 'Big Daddy' Natoli Jul 10, 2014

    The art in Avengers is consistently some of the best in Marvel. Leinil Yu continues to astound with sweeping galactic vistas, appropriately portioned characters, and framing that would make a cinematographer weep. The only downside is some of the background faces are left blank, probably due to the pressures of time constraints. The sacrifice is forgivable; given the sheer size, and scope of the book.

    This is one tie-in definitely worth checking out, and Jonathan Hickman should win an award for least-boring-massive-amount-of-exposition. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jul 9, 2014

    Avengers #32 is a heavy issue that is very Hickman-esque, for lack of a better term. This is time travel with all it's excitement and, depending on your tastes, pitfalls, but I will say that Hickman is doing time travel right. The inclusion of the guest star makes this issue soar for long time Hickman readers, and there are small moments in this comic that will make you laugh despite yourself. Get your thinking cap on and give this one a read, Avengers is most definitely building toward something big. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 9, 2014

    The art, unfortunately, is weirdly inconsistent in this issue. At times Leinil Yu's pencils and Gerry Alanguilan's inks merge in a scratchy, haphazard assortment of lines. But at other times, Alanguilan's inks smooth out and Sunny Gho's colors become more vibrant. Here the issue is at its best, and there are some definite shots of beauty as Franklin's garden blooms and he gives the Avengers a tour of the universe as it exists thousands of years from now.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 10, 2014

    How this issue fits into the series is all going to ride on the next issue, but as far as this single issue there's enough here, ideas mostly, to satiate Avenger and science fiction fans alike. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jul 11, 2014

    "Avengers" #32 is typical Hickman, which ambiguously will mean different things to different readers. In absolute terms, though, it's enjoyable enough, as Hickman throws in so many fascinating ideas that the issue is hard not to like, at least somewhat, despite the apparent aimlessness of the story. Yu makes both an alien forest and futuristic spacecraft look amazing, and combined the two creators generate enough of a wow-factor to offset the wha-factor. Read Full Review

    Another intriguing issue that creates more questions than it solves them. Most of the space is filled with info dump, leaving little space to explore how the characters are reacting to the information they are receiveng and the world they are visiting. On the other hand, it is fun to speculate about how this future will tie to the present and what that last page means. Inconsistent art throught the issue also hurts it. Leinil Yu excels at drawing the wide-scope scenes, but has problems at micro level, especially while trying to portray subtle emontions on the characters faces and poses. There is also a ridiculous and completely gratuitous Black Widow buttshot that ruins the storytelling in the page where it appears.

    Too much murky Hickman

    I'm starting to wonder if Hickman can write an issue without using the words "temporal" or "atemporal."
