    When I saw Ross and Krueger's name attached to the Avengers/Invaders project, I suspected it wouldn't be the same old team-up or slugfest, and so far those suspicions have been proven correct. Combining forces with Sadowski and Berkenkotter, they have treated the book as a critique on modern day shock tactics while still hammering out a strong story that addresses the concept of superiority.

    It's a minor glitch, but slightly annoying in that it seems to be a sloppy piece of writing and editing to have not figured out how to handle this plot point and where to set it. Ah well, as I said at the end of my review of the fourth issue--this series isn't likely to go down in the annals of comic book history as a classic, but it's an enjoyable experience for the 20 minutes or so it takes to read through an issue.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Nov 21, 2008

    The problem with the series falls on the idea that far too many characters are in play to make a single chapter feel satisfying. It really drags the entire project down and makes the plot move at an extremely slow pace, despite characters expressing the urgency of the situation. That is why I am going to consider this latest chapter to be my jumping off point. As for Avengers/Invaders #6? It is entertaining and decent enough to look at, but far from a must read. As such, it is worth picking up if you have stuck around this long, but I doubt many will feel the need to see this series to its end. Read Full Review

    Maybe the story will be redeemed in the last half of the series by a shocking twist that'll bring it all together. But so far, it's just been very disappointing. Read Full Review
