    A talky issue, but a fun one. The volume of dialogue is necessary to prep the rest of this storyline which will have plenty of action from Aaron, I'm sure. The visuals are great, with some great work on the characters and the colors glorious throughout. A solid building issue. Read Full Review

    Ed McGuinness and his creative team give us some captivating visuals. The coloring and the line work just pop, especially with the pulsating action throughout the book. A beautiful team pose with a cityscape backdrop (albeit missing a key Avengers member) paralyzed me with awe. It also inspired an "aww" with poor Ghost Rider WAY in the back posted up on his car. The MVP scene in this book was when Thor decides to confront Odin in Asgard, bringing along one other member in case things get froggy. It makes me shake my head grimace just how absolutely sick this panel is. Read Full Review

    AVENGERS #3 may seem a bit over its head, but Jason Aaron is laying the groundwork for what could be an excellent storyline. If he paces himself, keeps his characterization on point, and allows Ed McGuinness' artwork to do its thing, I think this will be a tale we'll remember for years to come. Read Full Review

    This story continues to be really well told by adding great character moments as well as tension and a mystery that is keeping me coming back for more. Read Full Review

    This is exactly what I want from an Avengers book, it's packed full of major superheroes facing extreme odds in saving the world from impending doom. It's over the top and I love it. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 21, 2018

    Avengers #3 is a weaker installment than its two predecessors, but its still good. The characters have compelling chemistry, the plot is intriguing, and the art is mostly quite good. I can recommend this one easily. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 23, 2018

    There is way too much plot and way too much exposition explaining that plot for this issue's own good. There are hints of a good time, but they are buried. Read Full Review

    "Avengers" #3 is an average story that might seem less uneven and more effective as part of a collection. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Jun 27, 2018

    Featuring consistently gorgeous artwork and a strong narrative focus, the latest issue of the Avengers, unfortunately, stumbles in its pacing, proving to be more of a set up for future issues than anything truly impactful. Although a new villain is introduced through the lens of an old one, we will have to wait longer to find out more about their agenda. Read Full Review

    All-in-all, Avengers is heading in a potentially exciting direction, but the road to the finish line is riddled with pot holes. Read Full Review

    Not much happens in this issue other than a surprise ending where Loki reveals what he believes to be the "father of the Avengers". Read Full Review

    We get some explanations, but for the most part this comic is moving too slowly to care. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Pashtrik Maloki Jun 21, 2018

    Avengers feels lacking due to a dull pace and poor character development. Hopefully, it will get better soon. Real soon. Read Full Review
