    WithThe Avengers: War Across Time #2, Paul Levitz delivers a great sophomore issue to what is shaping up to be a classic Avengers series. The Avengers' dynamics are explored in the midst of the action, and it progresses the storyline, even if some might say it was filler material since the main adversary, Kang, was not featured.

    All this is to say that the plot itself isn't much to write home about, but it remains engaging from an artistic point of view and at the end of the day is something that's fun to read. Read Full Review

    I like the insertion of Sindri as he is a game changer for Thor as he had a hand in creating Mjolnir and can weld the hammer. However, just in two issues, I am ready for this group of Avengers to get an update in both art and personality. I loved my intro to comics, and for some, they may wish to go down memory lane. But for now, Kang needs to get on with a time jump! Read Full Review

    If only all Marvel comics were like this.

    Fun. Non political. Optimistic.

    I didn't like this one as much as I did the previous issue, mostly because the dwarf king was a bit hookey, but I do appreciate the nostalgia. They break into the Baxter Building, get attacked by Reed's security system, and then just leave only to accidentally transport the Dwarf King. It's all a bit too convenient for me, but it was still fun.

    This is a loving, finely-crafted example of an awful thing that happened a lot in the Silver Age: the left-field, tall-grass plot derailment. It's still entertaining thanks to the great storytelling and the brisk pace.

    What I would have preferred, though, was a satirical/deconstructive edge. Yeah, superheroes used to randomly lose interest and bail out of stories in the 60s. How about giving us an insightful/funny look at *why* instead of merely replicating the phenomenon in the comics equivalent of HD?

    Saltier/sillier take on what just happened: "Dammit, Jack, we were supposed to be fighting Kang this month." "Yeah, but I really felt like drawing some more Norse stuff."

    This continues to be a simple, nostalgia-laden fun time. It definitely has its place.

    I'm fighting with myself.
    I still think that this series is enjoyable and pointless at the same time. Mildly unnecessary. I will still buy every following issue because, weirdly enough, still is the best monthly Avengers comic right now

    This really feels like it was written in the '60's. It has the feel old school comics did where it's a fun story but lacks depth and emotion. I prefer the complexity and emotional stakes of modern comics but for those who miss the old school style books this would be a homerun.
