    The book is beautiful as well. Brandon Peterson and Mike Mayhew provide the pencils while Jason Keith colors. It's slick and very well laid out. It's easily some of the best artwork this series has seen. Coupled with a really well scripted first part of this final arc, Avengers #31 looks and feels like it's the start of a really great story for Bendis to ride out into the sunset. Read Full Review

    The artwork in this issue is, quite simply, amazing. Brandon Peterson and Mike Mayhew really put their all into it here. I particularly liked their rendering of Captain America, who has never looked more heroic and realistic, outside of an Alex Ross painting. They brought that extra something to an already great issue. Very nice work, all around. I give this issue a 9/10. Very much looking forward to next issue! Read Full Review

    A decent starting point, but precious little more than that, to a promising plot and a nice chance to relax and unwind, which may not be every reader's ideal way of spending money. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 10, 2012

    The art in this issue is a little off putting. Brandon Peterson and Mike Mayhem are both credited as artists here, although it doesn't say who draws what. The artist who drew the first scene kills it. Looks great. The bulk of the book, however, looks awkward and far too photo referenced. Is Wonder Man (hate you so much) pissed off or taking a dump? It just looks weird and staged. This is not a terribly exciting issue to begin with and then you add in strangely posed characters taking dumps while floating in in New York City? There are better Avengers books out there, people. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 15, 2012

    I'm just not sure why Marvel didn't simply hold onto the issues of "Avengers" that are going to be released over the next few weeks and make them double-sized. Readers certainly would have enjoyed a more concise read than feel strung out for the wait until "Avengers" #32. Personally, I'm antsy to get more of these stories. Additionally, this story is freestanding enough and serves as a transition from Bendis' marathon service with the Avengers into what that brand is set to become under Marvel NOW! Read Full Review

    Overall, it was a good way to begin the end. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Oct 19, 2012

    While there are two artists listed there is no indication of which artist drew what which is a shame because then I can't call out the artist that needs to sort his stuff out. Whichever drew the off world portions deserves credit. However the other which features Cap and the rest of the Avengers makes me scratch my head. For the most part it is just off putting. Whether it's facial expressions or boring fight sequences it doesn't hit the mark. Read Full Review
