    After recent Avenger storylines falling a bit flat, I am sincerely impressed at how the pieces of this oneare coming together. It is tough to shell out for all the comics I would love to buy, but a return of TheBeyonder is worth your investmentespecially if you remember the 1980s as a comic-friendlyplayground!

    I'm excited for more Avengers Beyond after this first issue. It establishes a mega threat, captures the nuance of each character, and feels efficient as it gets us from an opening conflict to a new threat to fight by the end of the issue. Sure, there might be some pointless action that feels overly long, but this is an exciting Avengers book you won't be able to put down. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 30, 2023

    With the initial background of the story well and fully established, Landy can focus on what he seems to be best at: telling a solidly entertaining action story featuring some really powerful characters. All of the silliness of the cosmology of the Marvel Universe has been dealt with. Now, the mini-series can get down to the business of developing some serious and seriously witty action moments. Landy and the art team are at their best when everything is gliding smoothly forward. Read Full Review

    Avengers Beyond #1 is an overindulgent continuity mess that will likely confuse readers. The art hurts more than it helps, with Lands controversial style hindering the character designs. Read Full Review

    There's some things to like in this story, but it misses the mark so often that it's simply difficult to recommend this even to the most die-hard of Avengers fans. This one's an easy pass. Read Full Review
