    As a whole the ever-shifting perspectives has caused this book to feel somewhat disjointed at times, but as the varying plot tines draw closer together that is getting better, and I cant deny this book has certainly brought some intriguing new characters/teams to my attention, the Ascendant, Euroforce, the Next Avengers. Im definitely interested to see just what exactly this is all building up to. If you like the Next Avengers from their previous appearances or are unfamiliar with but curious about them, then this issue is certainly worth a read. Now, give us some quality time with the Ascendant already would you Nick Spencer? Please? Read Full Review

    Issue #11 fizzles out from the start due to some very inconsistent artwork that does not reflect the script well. While the story is arguably essential reading for people looking to keep up with the series, it's hard not to wonder how this comic would have looked with Caselli at the helm. Here's hoping #12 is stronger, as this series will falter fast if plagued with these kinds of inconsistencies. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Aug 16, 2014

    Compounding the shortcomings of the story is the artwork. Raffaele Ienco is a new name to me, but it seems obvious he still has some development as an artist ahead of him. He fails to convey the youth of the future Avengers children, nor do their powers seem particularly dynamic here. The reader often has to rely on the script to communicate what s/he is seeing in the visual component of this book. His work pales in comparison with series regular Stefano Caselli, and it just doesn't boast the polish and drama one has come to expect from this usually cerebral take on super-heroes.

    Oof. Talk about a decent story handicapped by some seriously gnarly art. Going from the expressive, cartoony artwork of Stefano Caselli or the clean, stylized work of Marco Checchetto to the rough, undynamic work of Raffaele Ienco is one of the biggest issue-to-issue trip-ups I've seen in a long, long time.
