    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Mar 21, 2019

    The Vampire Civil War has begun and it's outstanding! There's plenty of action with the team paired off in different locales fighting all sorts of bloodsuckers. One hero undergoes a transformation that's going to cause problems as the heroes continue to fight the fangers. The visuals are killer, with the characters, their actions, and the settings superb. This is a team book to find before the sun goes down! Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Feb 6, 2019

    Jason Aaron does a great job balancing the scope of this new story and the presence of his new villains. The Shadow Colonel is already a great villain. And David Marquez and Justin Ponsor deliver nothing but the best with their glorious pages. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 6, 2019

    The Avengers #14 had everything I wanted from this storyline. We are dropped right into the vampire civil war and the hunt for Dracula. Aaron toes that nice line of serious yet funny at the same time perfectly. The art from Marquez, Ponsor & Arciniega is just spectacular. I didn't want this issue to be done. As soon as I got to the final page I wanted more immediately, and that is probably some of the best praise I can give to a comic. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jacob Hill Feb 8, 2019

    After reading this issue I'm thoroughly convinced that Aaron and Marquez are capable of anything, including ice-skating uphill. Read Full Review

Will Robbie Reyes be the same again? Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 9, 2019

    Aaron manages to capture the tone of the MCU characters without shorting the much more complicated history of the comic Marvel Universe, giving us a lot of character and depth in a whiz-bang adventure yarn (with a pretty shocking final page.) Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Feb 9, 2019

    It seems that what a Marvel Civil War has been missing all along is the word vampire before it. While there are a couple of iffy character moments and not a lot very everyone to do, I am ready to rollespecially after the cliffhanger. I just hope we get at least one who ordered the stake line before its over. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 6, 2019

    A great kickoff to some Avengers vs. vampire action. Aaron and Marquez have a good handle of the characters and I can't wait to see how a vampire war changes the team and the world. Make no mistake, this is good horror comics meets action comics. This is a fang-tastic first issue in a story that does not suck. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Feb 9, 2019

    David Marquez is back on the book showcasing his artistic talents in a few exciting action shots and poses. Black Panther and Iron Man's double solar attack offered a dazzling scene that offset the darker aesthetic of most of the book. A fiery scene featuring Ghost Rider also served as a highlight, albeit a terrifying one. The newest Avengers book continues to be solid and dynamic take on Marvel's flagship team. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 6, 2019

    The issue is a good one with a lot of action and some interesting concepts. Though not perfect, it's a solid start to a story which feels like it could have been an event all on its own. With some minor tweaks this could have been a hell of a story reflecting on today's socio-political climate. We'll see where it goes but Aaron and the team have laid interesting groundwork.
