    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jul 3, 2013

    The above complaint can be easily rectified with a second reading, and thats not necessarily a bad thing as the art and dialog make this a book worth going back to. Hickmans Avengers run has, so far, had such a cohesive, flowing narrative that I truly think the book reads equally well in trade or single-issue format and I cant imagine its easy for Marvel to decide where the division should happen. I cant wait to see what the book brings to the table next, particularly with Caselli on pencils. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jul 9, 2013

    By creating a better division between the mystery, the action and the exposition and by having a better pacing, both Hickman and Spencer elevated the quality of this comic, which is also greatly helped by the terrific work of Stefano Caselli, Edgar Delgado and Frank Martin. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Jul 4, 2013

    Overall, like I said the book sure does create more questions than answers, yet that is what keeps you engaged in it. You want to know what the root of the problem is and see how they handle every obstacle which is thrown at them. Aside from this the art is again just as awesome as it has been since the start of the book and that is the one thing you have to give it credit for, having the combination of great writers and artists.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 5, 2013

    "Avengers" #15 is another rich installment in Hickman's grand adventure. Filled with excitement, suspense and action, this series continues to build an adventure worthy of Earth's Mightiest Heroes coming together. By the time the last page hits, it leaves the reader wanting more and wondering what they just saw. All of the creators contribute to the surprise, and I look forward to what Hickman, Spencer and Caselli bring have in store for the next issue in a few short weeks. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Jul 3, 2013

    While I did enjoy the plot development quite a bit, it began to ring a tad hollow because the story lacks a sense of heart -- a problem that can be traced back all the way to issue #1. The machinations of a universe-sized plot have overshadowed the people involved in it. Hawkeye and Black Widow have an exchange, but there's nothing there to make you truly care about them, and the same can be said for almost everyone else. This story is a lot better now that it has a clear focus, but it still has some work to do on the character front. Read Full Review

    Player Effort - Adedayo Olomodosi Jul 5, 2013

    Avengers #15 is well drawn and provides many thrills, but offers little in the overarching story and creates more questions than it answers. Read Full Review

    The stakes are constantly being raised in this series right now and if you're planning on checking out 'Infinity' later this summer, then you probably should be reading this book. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Cody Mudge Jul 3, 2013

    Avengers continues to be a very difficult title to review, and indeed, to judge as a reader. There is so much going on and there are so many plot threads, that at times it feels like you're drowning, and at others it feels like nothing worthwhile has occurred. In any case, this issue is certainly one of the best yet and this title seems to have found a nice groove lately, here's to hoping that the payoff is just as massive as the setup. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Jul 5, 2013

    There's a little bit of "get on with it" in this title right now, but this issue really does give you the sense that the layers are peeling back and it will pay off eventually. Yes, yes " everyone keeps saying that about Hickman's "Avengers", but it really does appear to be true. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 6, 2013

    I was really hard on this series at the start. The issues didn't seem to have much to do with each other, and I just didn't like the style of Hickman's storytelling. I like him as a writer. There have been issues and moments where greatness has shone through. But on a whole, I still just don't like his style. Maybe all of this is just over my head, and other people are firmly on board, I don't know. But I can appreciate the enormous peril he has placed in this adventure, and his skill in writing the individual Avengers. I am legitimately excited to see where this all goes, and I'm confident Hickman can pull it off. This issue was just another piece of the puzzle, moving us forward and teasing everything that comes next. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Jul 3, 2013

    Even with this strange issue of Avengers, readers should be excited for what this could mean down the line for the series. Infinity will be a different kind of event comic, simply because Avengers and New Avengers have been building up the conflict for such a substantial amount of time. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - MikeFitz538 Jul 3, 2013

    To start, I want to put it out there that I am a huge fan of both Hickman and Spencer. I also loved Caselli's art & have since I've first encountered it on Secret Warriors. However, I'm getting really tired of this book in many ways. Read Full Review
