    Comic Crusaders - Shawn Warner Aug 27, 2018

    Overall I love how Aaron uses the entire team to reach the resolution of this first arc. The narrative is paced at light speed so the plot unfolds quickly. There is not a single wasted panel as the team establishes themselves as suitable defenders of humanity and they do this while under fire from gigantic celestial beings. The Avengers team roster is versatile and fresh representing the diversity present in the Marvel Universe extremely well. If it's not already on your pull list definitely add it, you won't want to miss a single issue of this one. 5/5 Read Full Review

    The whole creative team put together this crisp, colorful visual journey worthy of the finale of the first Avengers arc since the Infinity War movie came out. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Aug 23, 2018

    AVENGERS #6 delivers an epic finale to what has been an utterly epic first arc. Between Jason Aaron's dynamic storytelling and Ed McGuinness and Paco Medina's stellar pages, AVENGERS #6 completely succeeds as both a solo issue and a conclusion to a full arc. Read Full Review

    Deep down, I can stand behind this issue, as well as Aaron's first arc, and say the Avengers are going in the right direction. Put this on your pull list and pick this issue up! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B.K. Derbidge Aug 31, 2018

    Marvels cosmic scope has been successfully showcased in their flagship title (mission accomplished!). This arc has truly been a preview of not only re-establishing the Avengers as a team but also to show how big Marvel is willing to go with this title. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 22, 2018

    Jason Aaron delivers an exciting conclusion to the final host storyline. He manages to deliver enough information throughout the issue to move the story forward while also keeping the reader in suspense almost up to the last possible moment. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Aug 24, 2018

    The Avengers battle with The Final Host continues with the fate of the world at stake. The Avengers exhaust all of their resources to stop the Horde and Dark Celestials and it still may not be enough. This is high concept sci-fi with abstract characters like Ghost Rider getting a lot of the shine. Jason Aaron's complex but enjoyable story with strong art from Ed McGuinness and Paco Medina make this a captivating read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 22, 2018

    The "fresh start" Avengers have established themselves as a team that is epic in scale and surprising in their approach. The lineup is a mix up of sorts thanks to Ghost Rider and, shockingly, he comes out of this series even better than ever. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 23, 2018

    Avengers #6 was a highly enjoyable ending to Jason Aaron's first story arc in this series. Aaron delivered a story that felt like a big event that had major consequences for how fans will view the Marvel Universe moving forward. And with how Aaron concluded this Dark Celestials story arc he has left us with a lot to be excited for as he gets deeper into his plans for the Avengers. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 23, 2018

    Avengers #6 isnt all that it could be, but I would be lying if I said that much of it wasnt still a ton of fun. We get to see the Avengers come together and fight the gods that wrought them, and they do so in a truly mighty fashion. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Aug 22, 2018

    Avengers #6 feels rushed in some places, but otherwise delivers a solid ending to this first story arc. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Sep 6, 2018

    The concluding chapter in this saga is a bit of cheat with something important missing and the art not as clear as in previous installments. Still, there's fun to be had in the dialogue and there are some effective panels. I just expected better for such a great build. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Aug 23, 2018

    The far-reaching allusions don't mean anything yet, but promise this will all eventually build into something. Hopefully that something is more satisfying than this first arc, which never truly came together even after the team itself had gone through the requisite assembling. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Charlie Ridgely Aug 22, 2018

    Avengers #6 finally brought the Final Host saga to an end, but its conclusion is so muddled and messy that I almost feel more joy that the arc is over than contentment for having read it at all. Read Full Review
