    Overall, in all respects, All-New Invaders #2 is a better issue than All-New Invaders #1. Can't wait to see what James Robinson turns out when he begins to hit his stride on this title. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Feb 7, 2014

    “All-New Invaders” is a title for anyone who likes the Silver Age of Marvel and wants to see these characters revisit that time, if even only in their memories. There are some new, inventive nuggets for those fans to discover within. Fans of modern comics who wouldn't mind some classic sensibilities thrown into the mix with characters that they've been keeping up with in recent years will find a lot to like here too. Robinson and Pugh's efforts on these first 2 issues make one thing clear – whatever era their book is set in, their going to make these characters click together. Read Full Review

    Now that the threat in Illinois has been dealt with and the team has an idea of what they're up against, the Invaders are determined to rescue their teammate from the clutches of the enemy. I look forward to catching up with Namor and seeing how he's getting through this whole ordeal while he's being held captive. This impending reunion is something that I feel this series does really well because it's using just the right amount of nostalgia to fuel something new and exciting that has payoffs for old and new fans alike. Hopefully, they keep it up and make me want to keep coming back for more. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Feb 5, 2014

    Pugh's art is solid, if slightly confusing at times. Some of the characters' poses look off, especially in the opening scene with Bucky. The fights are chaotic, as they should be, but there's just too many energy beams and too much fire flying around to accurately follow what is happening all the time. That said, Pugh draws an awesome looking Captain America and any page that features Steve Rogers looks fantastic. All-New Invaders has a way to go before it becomes a must-buy comic, but it's fun enough with some great looking Captain America pages, so it could be worse. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 5, 2014

    The second issue shines a little more light on the mystery that was forgotten by the Invaders and Robinson shows us a little more character development. Steve Pugh is drawing at a high level and is not afraid to show off. This could be a hit book if the quality stays at this level. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Feb 7, 2014

    Robinson caps off the issue as the action winds down with a clever validation of the comic's title, but even this feels a little forced. Robinson provides enough strengths to outweigh the weaknesses, and it looks good throughout. "All-New Invaders" #2 is still a fun ride, as long as readers can navigate around a few potholes.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 6, 2014

    Although it is plagued by many problems, there are some nice concepts and some very decent art at the heart of things that makes this a somewhat acceptable read. It could certainly be better considering the creative team, but future issues might tell if it can reach its potential. Read Full Review
