    Still, this story has entertained even if things are starting to slow a bit before winding down to a conclusion. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Sep 27, 2012

    Apart from a couple of odd facial expressions Scalera's art is on point. I find it comical during the scenes featuring Black Widow how despite the mass amounts of cleavage that she has her breasts don't fall out despite fighting and hanging out a plane. Well if they didn't I guess it wouldn't be very PG. Read Full Review

    Remender certainly delivers another successful issue with this title, but knowing that the series is ending (or at least he is leaving as writer) with #37, it puts the book in a bit of another light. Specifically, it has me wondering what sort of conclusionhe is working towards. Whatever it is, the road there is full of great character-work and awesome action. If the last six issues are as good as anything that came before then I'm sure we can stay confident in the fact that this run will conclude quite nicely. Read Full Review

    Fans of Remenders run should continue to eat up this series like it is Grandmas apple pie. The dialogue, the plot, the character, everything is done extremely well, and represents a strong case for why Remender was given the reigns to one of Marvels most important NOW! books, Uncanny Avengers. There is more airplane action between Widow and Hawkeye promised next issue, heres to hoping that Matteo Scalero sees a female, any female, in between now and then. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 26, 2012

    If there are any complaints to be had with the series right now, it's that it doesn't seem overly interested in functioning as a team book. Many of the Avengers are out of the picture and/or brainwashed, leaving only a handful with any significant screen time. The new Masters of Evil are a disappointment as well. They've become nothing more than recognizable vessels for Abyss to speak through. Still, there's enough drama and intriguing character dynamics, as well as fantastic art, to keep the arc humming along. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Sep 27, 2012

    This issue was one that was just kind of….there. Normally, I'm not this harsh on Secret Avengers but I guess I'm just wishing that it were more than it is. It's still fun, I just wish it had a little more depth and heart to it. Read Full Review

    I'm looking forward to the next issue because of the impending battle between Valkyrie and Venom, especially since they've been showing some romantic feelings between one another during this arc. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jay Mattson Oct 1, 2012

    There are many ways to tell a spy story, and Remender is picking and choosing the most action-oriented of those elements. While that sounds good in theory, it takes the 'secret' out of Secret Avengers and turns the story into a high-octane race against the clock. Again, nothing wrong with that, but for a title that's supposedly about fighting the hidden battles, this issue does not deliver. Read Full Review
