    Ed McGuinness' art is fantastic. I absolutely love the way he draws these characters and there is so much detail in every panel. Every page is gorgeous and the Brood are remarkably menacing to see on the page. Reading this issue, I thought the art couldn't get any better, but McGuinness ends this issue with a shot that got me just as excited as the first panel. Truly amazing art in this issue.

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Dec 2, 2019

    The strength in Aaron's storytelling here is his pacing. Even McGuinness' delightful layouts couldn't distract from the space adventure clich. Almost as soon as I thought, "this is moving a little slow isn't it?" Aaron fast forwards to right in the middle of the Avengers mission falling apart. It was almost comical. "Space, here we " " Captain's Log. Five days . . . since out mission went to hell". Read Full Review

    The next mission for the Avengers takes them to space. Down a few members, Captain America recruits Black Widow to accompany them. The Starbrand has reappeared in Shi'Ar space and not even Gladiator can slow its powerful impact. Can the Avengers find the source of Starbrand's power and contain it? Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Nov 27, 2019

    Things go wrong with a fearsome quickness when Cap takes the Avengers to space. While the flash-forward structure may irk some readers, those that play along are going to have a blast. The challenges are vast, the visuals are gorgeous, and key characters get some brief but endearing focus. "Starbrand Reborn" kicks off with a tone that's big, bold, and just a bit tongue-in-cheek.

    It's not always exciting nowadays when a great book pulls the "now we're going to space" card, but it really works for Aaron here. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Dec 1, 2019

    Writer Jason Aaron knocks it out of the park this issue, landing a near-perfect script that oozes with ominous mood and flawless pacing. The issue is a bit hampered by having Ed McGuinness' art mismatched to the tone of the story, but the overall script is strong enough to overcome. If you've been (im)patiently waiting for Aaron's run to finally hit its stride - your wait might just be over. Time will tell if he can pull off an entire arc that's as good as this first chapter!
