    If this is the sort of comic you are after, a summer blockbuster with fun, laughs, action, and intrigue then it has to be a purchase. If you're not into that style of comic then buy something else. I already pull down other stuff like Read Full Review

    So, another Avengers comic, another strong start. So far the Heroic Age is looking very good indeed. Read Full Review

    In short, fans of the Avengers and/or particular members of the cast will find plenty to like in New Avengers. It may not break any new ground for the genre, but what it offers is solid writing and art from beginning to end. Read Full Review

    "New Avengers" #1 is a continuation of the previous volume, but also a new chapter with Luke Cage setting up his team in Avengers Mansion. No longer on the run, Cage and company now get to be the sort of Avengers team that longtime fans will recognize and gain a sense of legitimacy as a result. A fun, strong opening issue that dives into the action by the end. So far, "The Heroic Age" is off to a very good start, especially in the Avengers' corner of the Marvel universe. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tim Lenaghan Jun 16, 2010

    Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of this issue was that it didn't feel like just another book on top of the growing Avengers pile. There are some dramatic differences between the four core Avengers titles that each highlights a unique aspect of the franchise. It's clear that no matter what your tastes may be Marvel is striving to cater at least one Avengers book that appeals to you. In the case of New Avengers that focus appears to be that this is a group of heroes that puts family first. Read Full Review

    Now, if only the New Avengers hired me to do all their moving, I could surely use the hours . . . or the dollar tip (thanks Tony!). Read Full Review

    That Bendis persists in winning over his old fans is of little surprise. Now that New Avengers no longer bears the burden of being its lines flagship book, perhaps it is time for yesterdays naysayers to also give it a shot. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jun 19, 2010

    Immonen is an old pro. Here he went for a simpler look and style but his solid storytelling is still visible to all. I would argue hes the strongest asset of this series so far, although hes no longer a super popular comic book artist. But, hes a solid artist that can take deadlines and deliver good work. That counts for much. Read Full Review

    All told, a solid start. A little talky, but by this point in time, if youre walking into a Brian Michael Bendis Avengers book, and youre expecting something that doesnt involve quippy fights and conversations, then you really should be giving your brain a good hard look because there is something wrong with it.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Jun 22, 2010

    New Avengers #1 is a poor read. This issue reads much like fanfiction where the writer ignores what they do not like or simply bends things in order to create their story. I would not recommend wasting your time and money on this completely unnecessary Avengers title. There are so many other titles far more worthy of your hard earned money than New Avengers. I would only recommend New Avengers #1 to die-hard Bendis fans and die-hard Luke Cage fans. For everyone else, go elsewhere with your entertainment dollars. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jun 17, 2010

    If there was any reason whatsoever for this team to exist, I think there would be more to like about this issue beyond Stuart Immonen's art. Unfortunately, the formation of the team is completely ignored in favor of cracking a few jokes and building up a plot about Read Full Review
