    I like the format of Age of Heroes. Its an anthology series that has stand alone stories that also tie into other series. The art styles differ greatly from each other, but theyre all good. The Young Masters story felt like a waste of time. Gauntlets single page fells like a cheat. Were led to expect a complete story, and basically just get a Marine PSA. Overall, this is a solid book Ill be following to the end. I wont be picking up any of the follow-up series though. My budgets too tight. Im entertained enough by whats here, and I hope Marvel continues to publish series like this in the future. Read Full Review

    The collection of shorts in this issue weren't as appealing as those in the first issue. While I realize that the aim of this mini-series is to get readers interested in the various new titles debuting throughout Heroic Age, the last issue offered more stories that could be enjoyed in themselves (in addition to being previews) while a lot of these just felt like teases and little else.

    "Age of Heroes" #2 is a little disappointing. I'd expected a lot more bang for my buck, and while the Gravity story was entertaining, the rest is easy to miss. I wish we'd had more complete stories in this issue, because I think that might've turned the tide. "Young Allies" fans should definitely check out this issue, but otherwise, there's not too much to entice one in. Read Full Review

    Nice, but hardly required reading. This is mostly a reminder by Marvel that Young Allies #1 and American Son #1 are coming out. Read Full Review
