    And while some elements are familiar, most of it is shockingly new and different - and well worth following. Heck, this issue is worth it for the Hawkeye moments. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon May 29, 2014

    Leinil Yu handles the pencils once again, and while many of the pages here are quite beautiful, there's more than one scene that can be a bit hard to follow. Other than that, the designs of some of our futuristic characters featured here aren't quite as impressive as they might have been intended to be. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder May 28, 2014

    The parts of this issue that work work amazingly well. We get some great character moments, regardless of how those characters got here, and, while this may be a lot of unused potential, this issue still has weight and power behind it. Its also great to, much like during the glorious Infinity event, see a tie-in that requires none of the core book to enjoy nor understand. If you have no interest in Original Sin, but still love reading Hickmans Avengers, feel free to pick this one up. Read Full Review

    After another crazy issue, things are about to get even crazier as we're headed hundreds of years into the future with the Avengers. No matter what crazy mysteries dwell there, I'm looking forward to finding them out. Read Full Review

    A story has been building in Avengers for some time thanks to Jonathan Hickman (East of West )" and, thankfully, this main event tie-in doesn't distract from it. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards May 28, 2014

    Avengers #30 is a pretty lackluster issue. It has some positives to it, but it lacks any real excitement, energy, or soul. A little disappointing since it had so much potential after that last issue. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 31, 2014

    So much for wanting to get back into Jonathan Hickman's Avengers. After a stellar two issues that really dig into the characters and their interpersonal conflicts, it looks instead like Hickman is just going to send a small bunch of Avengers on some weird time travel jaunt into weird, Hickman-inspired futures.

    Like the Avengers themselves, I feel lost here - and not sure I even want to wait while they try to find their way back. Read Full Review
