    With all the main Avengers titles now officially tied into AvX, it looks like they save the best for last. Read Full Review

    I'm suffering, of late, from a major Marvel overdose due to all of these crossovers, but I really enjoyed this book. It had a welcome sense of humor I haven't encountered in any of the other crossovers so far, fresh faces I don't know, and an outstanding sense of pacing introducing the characters that didn't seem forced. This is a Marvel book I would consider following monthly. Read Full Review

    I can't speak to this issue's place in the ongoing Avengers Academy series, but once I got over my "well, WHEN did the mutant kids get gathered up for transport?" the issue in a whole was quite enjoyable, and I look forward to seeing further interactions between these two groupings of kids in coming issues, and am curious as to what role they're ultimately going to play in the overall event. Not a bad tie-in, but definitely side-story material dealing with how the main AvX story affects the "kids," at least for now. Read Full Review

    Avengers Academy #29 is a great way to tie in with the AvX event without selling out to it. This book is all about characters we like, and if Gage can do with the X-Kids what he does with the AA crew, I may have to start looking into those X-books, too. Read Full Review

    Avengers Academy is enjoyable as always. However, the bar has already been set pretty high when it comes to AvX tie-ins, and it's difficult not to feel like Gage could be doing more with this arc. Read Full Review

    "Avengers Academy" #29 is fine but not great; it feels like a bit of a mixed bag as it zooms off on a strange tangent before pulling back into the main story. Ultimately it's the sort of crossover issue that ends up being inoffensive; it doesn't disrupt "Avengers Academy" but it's certainly not critical reading in the slightest. Maybe #30 will change things, but for now it's entertaining if not terribly important. Read Full Review
