    Jason Aaron has given us one of the best Avengers arcs in recent history. AVENGERS #17 is an explosive finale to a stellar arc. Coupled with Marquez and Arciniega's artwork, this is one issue you cannot miss. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 20, 2019

    Blade is hanging out with a mini-Man-Thing. Jen literally blows-up. Blade performs a decapitation and Captain Marvel shoots a blast right through the head of a vampire. There's witty dialogue and brisk pacing. Its a fun conclusion to the story for Aaron and Marquez. Next month, Ed McGuinness takes over the art as the War of the Realms crossover event. Aaron has an opportunity to take the team in new directions as the Squadron Supreme re-enters the picture once more like the United States latest superhero team.   Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Mar 21, 2019

    Firstly, can we sit back and appreciate the amazing cover of this book? The inside doesn't disappoint as this is the team brawl we've been waiting for this arc to get to. Needless to say, Marquez tears this book up with amazing action shots of Wakandan lightsabers, vampire Optic Blasts, and exploding rats. Not to be outdone, Aaron looks like he's having a ball with the mid-combat barbs and Blade's inner monologue (seriously, he calls T'Challa the Black Pope!). My absolute favorite is the couple panels where Blood Baroness shouts off Nazi rants and Captain America essentially says, "Ya Basic". The book ends with a couple of open directions to go in the future. We'll get more vampires eventually and definitely more Ghost Rider (Yea, that one). But next arc looks like it features your favorite DC ripoffs. Enter the Squadron. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Mar 20, 2019

    The vampire war has been prevented by the Avengers for the time being. The Avengers claim victory but don't realize that Dracula is not as helpless as he seems. Russia's vampire problem may not be going away anytime soon and the Winter Guard may not ready for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 21, 2019

    The Kingdom of Vampires storyline has been a ton of fun for me to read. I have enjoyed everything Jason Aaron has done with it throughout this story arc. The Avengers #17 just felt a little too rushed, though. Everything got taken care of just a little bit too easily. The art, as always, looks fantastic and is just a delight. I wish Aaron could have taken one more issue with this storyline to give it what it needed. But the big War of the Realms event is coming up next, so I guess that is why The Avengers #17 had to be wrapped up quickly. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Mar 20, 2019

    Avengers (2018-) #17 gives us an ending for the "Vampire Civil War" story arc. The ending itself isn't the strongest, but the story is good, and the art is fantastic. Read Full Review

    Avengers remains one of Marvel's biggest roller coasters, as some issues are absolute home runs while others struggle to land on two feet. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Mar 20, 2019

    The Vampire Civil War ends with a cool twist I didn't see coming, but overall, it was a bit of a letdown. Things felt rushed here and after the buildup, I expected more. Read Full Review
