    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 26, 2019

    So much of what Aaron has been doing with his end of War of the Realms in the Avengers seems to have been a process of testing various characters for future projects. The Squadron Supreme issue felt a bit off, but this issue and the one before it (featuring Gorilla-Man) show a willingness to further explore aspects of the Marvel Universe that have faded out of the center of the frame in recent months. This closer look at She-Hulk turns out to have been one of the best issues in the whole War of the Realms event thus far.  Read Full Review

    If you are a She-Hulk fan, Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness have an issue for you! I have been upset by the lack of focus on Jenn throughout this series and this fixes that big time. Does it push the overall story much? Nope, but I loved it anyway! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jun 26, 2019

    This volume of the Avengers hasn't won me over as a die-hard fan. But I've liked virtually all of the "hero spotlight" issues it's delivered, and this one is no exception. Jennifer Walters was in desperate need of the attention. Thoughtful words and powerful art deliver a nicely-balanced portrait of a hero struggling to find her balance. It's a decent tie-in to War of the Realms, but its top priority is exploring the evolution of the She-Hulk. And it does that job with superlative skill. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jul 1, 2019

    Working as both an insightful character piece, an event tie-in, as well as a great teaser for the Avengers as a book moving forward, Avengers #20 winds up being one of the best single issues the series has delivered in quite some time. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Jun 27, 2019

    The Avengers continues to be pawns in the War of The Realms. The good thing is that Jason Aaron takes this issue and dedicates it to She-Hulk. She-Hulk has been one of the standout characters of Aaron's run so far, and it was great to see her character given some depth and development. Aaron appears to have big things planned for Jennifer Walters, and this issue was just the beginning. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 2, 2019

    It's a spotlight for Jennifer Walters and a really effective character study that doesn't skimp on the fighty-fighty, once again making the crossover work to support the ongoing series. Some really good art doesn't hurt, either. Read Full Review

    There are some faulty steps at the beginning and end of the issue, but all around well-written, well-illustrated, and a good deal of fun. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Jun 28, 2019

    Aaron, McGuiness, and team deliver another strong issue on the broader 'War of the Realms' narrative, knowing when to pull back on both big plot moments and visual action scenes. Read Full Review
