    On the art side, Andrea Di Vito still brings a great style perfectly matched for the darker and action scenes. His characters' forms and movements are nicely drawn. In the more dramatic moments, he does well with the expressions. Overall, I have always been a fan of his since back in his Crossgen days and have been very pleased with his work on this story in particular. Read Full Review

    Lightspeed's speech was a little cheesy and awkward for a fight in the middle of a room, but those things aside, I still enjoyed this comic. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how the Academy crew, and I'd wager, Jocasta, stop Briggs' master plan. Read Full Review

    Much of this character building seems to lay the groundwork for future stories, which of course raises hope that maybe Gage won't be done with these characters just because the series is ending. No doubt there's still a wealth of material to explore in the coming weeks. Read Full Review

    "Avengers Academy" has been a fun series, and it's sad that it's not only coming to a conclusion but is doing so in what feels like a slightly rushed and accelerated manner. Still, there's more than enough for fans of the series to enjoy here; the ending's going to be bittersweet, but we'll have fun getting there. Read Full Review

    To rephrase another superhero epic, it's not what you do that defines a comic " it's how you do it. Gage should be hitting all the emotional high notes with his resolutions to these characters, who, like any good parent, he is giving enough interesting wrinkles to make them palatable to other writers, should the opportunity present itself. But in terms of this comic alone, it's a little too focused on hitting plot points, rather than fleshing out the character beats that make them special. Read Full Review
