    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio May 23, 2019

    AVENGERS #19 comes is a surprise issue. Aaron has little to no trouble evolving the character of Gorilla-Man and making us care about him. Not to mention, the WAR OF THE REALMS tie-in aspect of this issue is flawless. On top of all that, you get to look at pitch-perfect pages from McGuinness, Ponsor, and Arciniega all day long. What's not to love? Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 22, 2019

    Ed McGuinness art is out of this world. All of the beautiful splash pages and hero shots make the issue come to life. All of the characters look amazing. A great looking issue from beginning to end. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 22, 2019

    Last issue the Avengers title cast its focus on a few characters that have largely been forgotten. Here its focussed on a character who is far more interesting than how hes been treated in the past. Its a clever approach to a mega-crossover: invite the readers to take a closer look at minor side characters caught-up in the rush of events rather than the standard ensemble so often found filling the pages of the book. Sometimes when things get really stressful, you just need to hang out with a gorilla. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence May 24, 2019

    I give Aaron a lot of credit for the web of characters, teams, and motivations that he's creating. The Winter Guard, the Legion of the Unliving, and especially the Agents of Wakanda have provided a variety of possibilities Aaron is looking to explore. I can only imagine that this book has been designed with years of plots in mind. I adore it when a minor character is focused on to move the story along. Let's not forget what a giant like Ed McGuinness can do with such a dynamic book. There are some great shots, including Luke Cage with a battle hammer and Carol Danvers flying alongside a flying boat. Depending on who's drawing the rest of the War of the Realms books, I may have to pick the series up. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman May 22, 2019

    The War of The Realms lands right on the Avengers doorstep. While the war rages on, T'Challa's Agents of Wakanda continue to covertly gather intel on potential threats the Avengers must be aware of. What T'Challa and the Avengers fail to realize is that the intel they receive may not be able to be trusted. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner May 24, 2019

    If you are only here for the War of the Realms, you may be disappointed and confused. However, if you are a regular reader of this book, Jason Aaron is putting a lot of cool pieces together in very interesting ways. I went into this for more of the later so I left with a smile on my face. Read Full Review

    One of the strengths of this series is its ability to give a voice to characters we aren't use to hearing from. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack May 27, 2019

    A decent issue that manages to move the main Avengers plot forward more than the last 3 have and still be a WOTR tie in. Read Full Review

    While the central narrative may feel a bit disjointed, the artwork and central character still chalks up a nice win for Avengers #19. Read Full Review
