    America is a comic which handles different aspects of comics, culture, and life in a way that is deeply moving. Stakes are always high, but not in a way that would drive up your blood pressure. Between the writing and art, everything feels important and is a grand testament to layered narratives which revolve around fictional characters. With a firm lead toward future stories, this series will continue to address cultural narratives while embracing the fantastic parts of superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 4, 2017

    America #6 deserves the highest recommendations, taking its charismatic lead and putting her in different, emotional situations throughout the book, highlighting her loves, her friendships and her family as much as her power and determination, leaving me giddy about my new fave-rave character.

    Finding out Madrimars true identity was the icing on the cake. I know Americas mothers died when she was young, but I wouldve thought they had told her if one of them had any parents.Im not sure Im 100% into Magdalena as a love interest for America though. I wouldnt pick Lisa either. Im just picky because I love her. Im ready to see America grow her relationship with her grandmother and finally have a real family. Read Full Review

    This short, two-issue punch featuring Kelly Thompson as the "archery consultant" and Kate Bishop (aka, the best Hawkeye) represents the best of what this comic can be. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Aug 31, 2017

    For me this issue was one of the most fun ones we've had yet. Midas is still coming into Chavez life without any subtlety whatsoever, which can make it feel over the top at times but the reveal now is having it make more sense and making the importance of America Chavez stand out.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Aug 31, 2017

    Gabby Rivera's narrative to this point has settled in and centered itself around themes of family and friendship, allowing Rivera to really play to her strengths as a writer. There's a still a healthy dose of Marvel Universe weirdness on display (Arcade, the Mindless ones and a bevy of supervillains), but by drilling down to the interpersonal conflicts between America, Madrimar, Kate and Magdalena, Rivera is able to tap into the heart of her book.
