    Weaver did excellent with this issue between his shading, inking and the general expressions of pain and fear throughout that was consistent. Read Full Review

    I've said it before, but I really love how complex Hickman's story is in 'Avengers'. I'm really enjoying this mystery and watching it unwind each issue. It's probably one of the most intricate comic series that I've ever followed and I'm looking forward to reading more. Read Full Review

    So" There you have it. Regina is destroyed. As someone who lives 5 hours away from that city, I'm wondering if Winnipeg is next to come. Maybe the fact that we have an NHL team now will save us from the ravages of the 616 at times, although that certainly didn't stop much of the destruction in the Ultimate universe. It was nice to see some Canadian heroes again, even if it was Omega Flight and not Alpha Flight (whose last miniseries around Fear Hickman likes to go for grander, more epic storylines, which can sometimes leave the reader who joins at a random point scratching their heads as to what is going on. But, as he was able to show in his tenure on Fantastic Four, he pulls it all off in the end. Nothing is done for the sake of just doing it; it's all done with a plan in mind. With the tone both here and in New Avengers of grander problems for the world, I have no doubt he is leading up to something huge. I just hope it doesn't take 3 years to get there. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Apr 25, 2013

    Despite a few bumps and bruises over the last ten issues, this book remains strong as it continues to develop a mind-bending mythos that challenges as well as engages. Not everybody is going to like this book, but I for one am enjoying the ride. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 25, 2013

    Bizarre aliens and a creepy scene driven by the presence of Validator post-Gardener fill "Avengers" #10 with uncertainty and excitement. Hickman opens the issue at the end of the story before leaping back to what transpired beforehand, which intensifies the drama and adds a bit of mystery to this adventure before he reveals the status of the system to readers in a cliffhanger. Par for the course, "Avengers" #10 is a great read when considered in the context of the grander adventure. As a standalone story, there's more than enough meat to this story for readers to sink their teeth into. Read Full Review

    Mike Deodato makes his debut on this series taking over art duties from Dustin Weaver. Deodato doesn't back down from the challenge and produces some great looking pages. His hyper-detailed faces are a huge asset and he did well to remember that this series is heavily influence by science-fiction and his art reflects that. Once again,Avengers has found itself a capable artist to carry this series. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Apr 24, 2013

    It truly is a shining statement about this book that I enjoy it as much as I do despite not understanding a huge swaths of it. I have a feeling this, and much of Hickman's work, will read much, much better in trade as even the brief week's delay between issues makes the plot difficult to piece together. But as it is, this is an issue for those already invested in the Avengers in general, as well as this storyline. The characters don't develop, they are who they are and your enjoyment of this book runs almost directly parallel to how much you enjoy the cast in the first place. It just so happens that I enjoy them very much. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Apr 30, 2013

    Even though Ex Nihlo and his crew were not involved in Avengers #10 this issue successfully pushed the story forward thanks to the final fate of Alpha Flight and the revelations that the Avengers made during their mission in Canada. I will admit that Hickman should have turned this one-shot into a two issue arc to further flesh out certain sub-plots. But then again that is the double edge sword with using the Marvel Universe history as the basis for the story since there will be things new readers may not catch. Overall, Avengers #10 is able to solidly progress Hickmans epic Avengers story forward with things only get more dangerous for Earths Mightiest Heroes in the future. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Apr 24, 2013

    Mike Deodato does a good job detailing the strange and admittedly creepy quarantine zone. There's strange vegetation, ruined buildings, and odd little yellow men. His gift for facial nuances help him sell the one funny moment of the book between Falcon and Captain America, but that's not enough to unhinge you from the dreary atmosphere this book pulls you into.

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic May 7, 2013

    The real issue with this issue is Mike Deodato, who seems to be entering that "shameless use of computer art" phase of his career. Now, I don't mean drawing stuff using a tablet -- everybody does that these days and you don't even notice. Deodato's art in this issue looks like he's putting textures over awkwardly posed 3D models (and, even worse, copy-pasting alien creatures all over the damn place) and it's pretty jarring and distracting. It's art that's as mechanical and soulless as the tools used to make it. Read Full Review
