    For anyone struggling with Avengers and New Avengers, I strongly recommend checking this series out just because it's actually going someplace and not nearly as tedious. Read Full Review

    This was a difficult issue to review. It wasn't very action heavy, it was more a look into the mind/actions of Reptil. Before I picked up this comic I could easily be placed in the, "Not a fan of Reptil" category. With that said, after reading this issue my mind was definitely changed. Christos Gage(writer)really did a masterful job of giving Reptil a personality, as well as making him into a sympathetic type character. Besides that, this was a great jumping on point for this series, as we see the Academy students and teachers through the eyes of Reptil. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Nov 3, 2010

    Like I keep saying, I thought this was going to be a really cheesy book when I first saw the previews of it, but it's proven to be almost as dark and dramatic a title as Thunderbolts is. The fact that these are all kids adds an even greater sense of urgency to the proceedings, because a lot of them are really in over their heads and you really can't guess how a lot of them will turn out.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 6, 2010

    I find the concept pretty fascinating, even as I wonder who picked the five most fed up Avengers to play den-mother, and this issue proves once again why Avengers Academy is the best Avengers title on the stands right now. Avengers Academy #6 continues their streak with another solid tale, fine art and story, and even a little dinosaur mayhem for Rodrigo, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. I continue to be pleasantly surprised by this title every month Read Full Review

    "Avengers Academy" has finished introducing its six main characters, and I'm interested to see just Gage and company have in store for us next. This has been a remarkably successful launch of a new series, and I'm jazzed to keep reading. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 4, 2010

    It's really hard not to compare this issue to the previous efforts from this awesome series because the quality of those issues was so high. On its own merits, there is a lot to like here, but knowing the potential that Gage and McKone have, it doesn't add up. Of course, it doesn't help that the multiple inkers on McKone's art give it an uneven quality. This isn't a horrible comic by any means, but its definitely a step down for this otherwise brilliant series. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Nov 5, 2010

    The cover is a bit of a fib. However, the creative team more than atone through the beautiful scene in which Tigra decks Justice. I never imagined that happening and while the current incarnation of Justice has grown on me a little, that punch is sweet. Tigra is love. Read Full Review
