    Empyre: Aftermath - Avengers #1 (Ewing, Schiti, & Gracia) walks the line between foreshadowing of the post-event fallout and a homage to some fan-favorite characters. The wedding setting and intimate moments provide an anchor for the space-shattering changes they want us to believe will follow. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 8, 2020

    Empyre: Aftermath Avengers #1 is the perfect coda to this summer's Marvel Comics event. It closes the door on major plot points but keeps it cracked just enough to get your imagination going with where we go from here. This book looks as good as the event itself, which is actually uncommon for many events in Marvel's history, but somehow Schiti and Gracia keep the quality level up to a high standard. If you read Empyre and enjoyed it, you must read this. And if you want to keep tabs on where Marvel Comics goes from here, you guessed it, you gotta read this. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 9, 2020

    The Avenger's Empyre epilogue concentrates more on Emperor Hulkling and his court than the titular team. This actually works out well, tying a solid bow on the event while leaving a few promising plot threads loose for continuation. Great character art helps make the reading experience a satisfying one.

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Sep 17, 2020

    I have enjoyed the Empyre event and this was a sweet ending to the story. I have been rooting for Hulking and Wiccan since I knew about their relationship and glad to see it finally come to marriage. While this issue was mostly resolution and didn't have much to talk about, I think this is a good read regardless if you having been following the Empyre Event. Read Full Review

    Ewing and Schiti are able to capture character moments well enough, but Empyre weaves a story with weak cohesion and the final page will have you groaning that there may be a sequel in the works. Read Full Review
