    New Avengers #11 is a fantastic read for anyone who has been enjoying the series to this point, and for anyone reading Infinity. Big forces are in play and Hickman does not shy away from shaking things up in this issue, adding new factors into the event and seeding some interesting stories for down the road. This is one of the best books Marvel is putting out and an excellent chapter in this event. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Oct 17, 2013

    Mike Deodato again provides the art for this Infinity tie-in, and he continues to be a great match with this book. His work with shadows and darkness, and the general combo noir-superhero aesthetic of his art looks great and captures the tone of the series well. Moreover, even in the more vibrant battle scenes, Deodato's art continues to shine, and his work capturing the epic nature of the battle for Wakanda is quite impressive. There are many moments throughout the issue where Hickman allows Deodato's art to speak for itself, relying on his strong ability to depict emotion, and that emotion really shines through, giving us everything we need to know in understanding exactly how each character is feeling at that very moment. Simply put, NEW AVENGERS #11 is yet another excellent addition to Hickman's run and if you haven't been following this series, you've been missing out on something great. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Oct 16, 2013

    Another area where everything is pretty much solid is the art, with Mike Deodato switching from military angle to end-of-the-world scenario to full cosmic without hurting the visual flow one bit. He is able to switch from action to more character driven-interaction easily, always focusing on the proper poses that would render the script apt on the pages. His characters, backgrounds and general panelling are great too, as nothing is ambiguous in their designs and their focus. Where he's a bit weaker is with the expressions attached to his characters, though, as Deodato seems to have taken the seriousness of this book too much at heart. There isn't a great range of emotions on display here, as the characters all seem to be stuck in some kind of inner conflict, never showing how they might be shocked, fearful or otherwise by what is happening around them. The rest is top-notch, though, as Deodato really succeed in bringing in the right atmosphere. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 17, 2013

    New Avengers #21 is a great comic book that does more than enough to garner praise from me, if you're reading Infinity than there's absolutely no way that you can properly enjoy it without picking up this exceptional tie-in. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Oct 17, 2013

    Overall, while the Infinity War has actually shaped up to be one in space, Earth is now it's own war zone. Everyone is in on the fight, and no one is safe from what's to come. Thanos is is now in Necropolis, where the Earth destroying bombs are kept, and the Builders have finally made their way to Earth. What more could go wrong? Hickman has the answers and if anything like what we've gotten so far, it will be something monumental. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Oct 18, 2013

    Swinging for the fences with its cosmic ramifications, New Avengers #11 is pretty successful in raising the stakes for Earths last defense while the Avengers battle the enemy abroad. Both Hickman and Deodato deliver a strong read with this one, posing some interesting questions for the Illuminati as this event draws to its conclusion. Good stuff, definitely worth picking up.

    "New Avengers" #11 is an interesting issue that finally sheds some light on Hickman's Avengers mythos while setting up even more events to come. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Oct 16, 2013

    While the story is still top notch, the art goes down a peg. It's still effective in its storytelling, which is always a huge plus with writer Jonathan Hickman's twisting and twirling narratives, but it lacks its normal polish. Artist Mike Deodato does a great job on select scenes, but then there are some that lack his normal commitment to detail, plus Frank Martin's usually spot-on colors aren't as varied and textured as we're used to getting out of him. This is still a good-looking issue with a great story, but it must be pointed out that it doesn't reach the high mark of previous issues. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Oct 17, 2013

    New Avengers #11 adds a new layer to the Infinity story. The Illuminati and their upcoming decisions could end up changing things for better or for worse. Its exciting stuff and provides a new angle to look at Infinity with. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Oct 28, 2013

    New Avengers #11is yet another strong issue for this title. Superbly balancing three seemingly quite separate storylines is alone admirable, but making them cleverly interlink and up the stakes is something which deserves great applause. And with just one more issue of New Avengers left directly tying into "Infinity," I really cannot wait to see what Hickman has in store for us. Because if it's anything like the previous few issues, then we are in for one hell of a treat. I doubt the Illuminati would agree with that however" Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Oct 20, 2013

    This was yet another fantastic tie-in issue, as although it wasn't quite as good as the previous tie-in issues that New Avengers has produced, it was still a very exciting and enjoyable issue. It also had some brilliant action, as well as having a lot of drama and suspense throughout. On top of that there was some very interesting developments that have me looking forward to Infinity #5 even more than I already was. Due to all this I'd highly recommend this issue, as well as the main Infinity event and the Avengers tie-ins as they are all truly amazing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 17, 2013

    This title has been gaining steam and relevance as "Infinity" continues on and "New Avengers" #11 is the most critically linked issue of the series yet. Revelations are made here and plots are advanced, making it must-read material for "Infinity" enthusiasts. Mired in the uncertainty of what is to come from the collision point of the various storylines, "New Avengers" #11 is tense and tight, leaving the reader staring at the "Infinity" infographic checklist, counting days until the next installment.

    PopMatters - Troy Wheatley Oct 29, 2013

    So, who then is our victor? Neither issue will likely be remembered as an Avengers classic, and Infinity overall is turning out to be a solid crossover epic rather than a spectacular one. But it still feels like the main action is going on over in Avengers. It's Avengers #21 by a solitary point. Read Full Review
