    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Dec 13, 2014

    It's a thoughtful, clever script by Jonathan Hickman and amazing, over-the-top artwork by Mike Deodato. Best of all, it's a fight between Marvel heroes unlike any other. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - John Tuppen Dec 13, 2014

    Hickman is writing some of his best work on this Avengers run. I've said before and it needs repeating again. This is a book that is a long way into a massive multiple thread story that to enjoy requires a lot of back reading to catch up on. The books having this barrier are a negative for certain, but one that is counteracted by just how great the content being created really is. Long form hard science fiction in comics does not get better than this, and those of us along for the ride are very lucky to be a part of it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Dec 10, 2014

    The whole crossover thing (it will even be continued in the next issue of NEW AVENGERS) isnt bad on its face, its just a bit disappointing that a series that had so perfectly sidestepped all the potholes that come with needing to read other books in order to follow the plot finally stepped in one. Its still a very, very good issue, the writing and visuals are beautiful and heartfelt while still having an edge of both desperation and hard-hitting action. Its a tough balancing act to achieve, but this issue manages it with aplomb. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Matt Lehn Dec 14, 2014

    While "Part 1" rightfully denotes copious amounts of word intensity that one expects from writer Jonathan Hickman, the set-up is punctuated along the way by formidable action sequences courtesy of Mike Deodato and color artist Frank Martin. Dialed in extremely tight for this month-long "crossover within the crossover", the character drama elevates as well with the S.H.I.E.L.D. Avengers portrayed for the first time as anything other than cold fascists. Well, some of them anyway. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 11, 2014

    Withthe focus more on action than plot progression, this issue isn't necessarily the most compelling to come out of this "Time Runs Out" storyline. Still, Hickman defintiely gives Mike Deodato plenty of great material to work with, especially the shots of Jim Rhodes' War Machine army or Captain Marvel battling Hulk. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Garza Dec 11, 2014

    Infinite Comix - Lewis Reynolds Dec 12, 2014

    Avengers #39 sees the title hunker down and get on with it, working towards the consolidation of its various alliances and factions in advance of next year's 'Secret Wars'. Having negated some of the initial confusion surrounding the time jump and this new world's balance of power, Avengers has now hit a more consistent run of successes, confirmed here in this fun and comprehensible read.
