    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 8, 2014

    This issue also proves more visually cohesive now that Stefano Caselli illustrates the entire story. Caselli and Hickman have formed a great team dating all the way back to Secret Warriors. Caselli's expressive art captures both the massive scale of the story and the very real, emotional drama. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Oct 8, 2014

    This is a concept issue that just happens to have some engaging, fascinating characters. While that gives the reader an emotional core, its not without its narrative flaws, but overall the writing and the art meet so well and establish such a strong emotional core, that even though I dont fully follow whats happening, Im still finding myself extremely invested. Wherever this book is going, if this quality keeps up, I can easily suggest coming along for the ride. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Lewis Reynolds Oct 9, 2014

    Stefano Caselli's art is consistently solid, but not quite as spectacular or affecting as Hickman's scripting sometimes needs it to be. Likewise, Frank Martin's colours are a little too bright and optimistic for what is essentially a dystopian future. Again, these are only small complaints, and take little away from an otherwise exceptional instalment of the "Time Runs Out" event. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - John Tuppen Oct 9, 2014

    Avengers remains a book of very high quality. Despite this issue not containing very much forward momentum it still possesses every bit of the grandeur that Jonathan Hickman writes so well. This grandeur is something that is clearly building up to a second event that will perhaps be written by Hickman himself. From the strength of Infinity whatever that event may be was sure to be something worth reading. With the complexity of the narrative Hickman is weaving though I fear that time may have already run out for new readers looking to get in on this ongoing modern masterpiece. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 8, 2014

    Avengers #36, despite some excellent artwork, slows the momentum of Time Runs Out and issue #35. Some of the big reveals of last issue are completely ignored and to focus on this primary storyline right out of the gate vexes me slightly. In Hickman I still trust, but I will admit this issue was a let down. It is obvious that big things are on the horizon, so I'd argue this is still a must read for Avengers fans, even for Caselli's art alone. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 11, 2014

    We're still in the future of the Avengers, and while I've been absolutely thrilled with Hickman's New Avengers, he doesn't give the regular Avengers comic as much oomph. I think it's the choice of characters. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Oct 8, 2014

    I was curious about what this issue would be like after what we got last time, but having read it, what enthusiasm I had for this arc is slowly dwindling. Please get this comic back on track soon writer. The end is nigh. Read Full Review
