    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Dec 9, 2010

    I'm not sure if this book works well because of the great characters involved, or if it's just the creative team hitting on all burners - but I'm really enjoying this series, and this comic - despite having no action scenes whatsoever - may be my favorite issue yet. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Matt Duarte Dec 14, 2010

    This issue is a love letter to the Bendis era of the Avengers, and Immonen is up to the task to embellish any imperfections along the way. Too preoccupied with navel gazing? Perhaps. Flawed? Arguably. Entertaining? I definitely though so. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 8, 2010

    The team that Bendis has assembled behind Luke Cage is a fun mix of characters and personalities, but it doesn't really feel very Avengeriffic. Nighthawk sums it up best when he says, "Clearly you guys are the Defenders, but you're calling yourself the Avengers??" Avengers, Defenders, whatever the team brand, there's no denying this is a collection of fan favorites. So long as they have the chance to shine like this every once in a while between missions this title will continue to be enjoyable. Of course it helps tremendously to have a talent like Immonen on the art chores. Ably inked by Von Grawbadger, Immonen's ability to deliver humanistic expressions, mind-blowing detail, and a stunning range of physiques and features really sold this book to me. This team is not my daddy's Avengers, it's not even my Avengers, but it doesn't make this issue any less enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser Dec 10, 2010

    Though Joss Whedon may be directing the upcoming Avengers movie, its hard to imagine even the Master achieving a better sense of ensemble than Bendis does here. When its at the top of its game, New Avengers is the Buffy the Vampire Slayer of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 11, 2010

    New Avengers #7 is a very pleasant diversion, well-written and meaningful, even as nothing much actually happens, earning a very respectable 4 out of 5 stars overall. The only way this book would have been better would be more U.S.1, if you ask me Read Full Review

    I enjoyed it, but I imagine that this issue could be something of a divisive one. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 31, 1969

    Stuart Immonen's art is a huge draw as well. There isn't much action to be had this month, but Immonen proves himself to be equally adept at talking heads and dialogue-heavy scenes. With the lush colors of Laura Martin to rely on also, New Avengers is easily one of Marvel's prettiest books these days. It's a shame we only have one more issue with the current art team to look forward to. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Colin Andersen Dec 13, 2010

    At this point, Im not sure if there is anything Bendis can do to change his writing style back to something I particularly enjoy anymore. Doing something about his dialogue would certainly help but he also needs to stop being so decompressed and have more happen in every issue. At this point, theres so little happening each issue that it is hard to justify buying New Avengers as individual issues. As great as Immonens art is, it doesnt justify $3.99 an issue. Just wait for the trade paperback and save yourself for money; youre not missing too much by waiting. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle Dec 15, 2010

    Now, I'm not saying every single issue needs an explosion or anything, but it needs a hell of a lot more than this. If we're going to pay $4 a pop, let's give people something more than the thrill of interviewing D-Man for the open nanny position. If you ask me a year or two down the line if I remember The New Avengers #7, the only answer I could give is, “Oh yeah, isn't that the one that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING happened in?” Read Full Review

    My favorite issue so far. New Avengers 7 isn’t really part of an overall story arc, which gives us more time for stuff like the team receiving their paychecks (accept Spidey, he doesn’t get paid). Doctor Strange also joins the team, which I like, but the team is getting a little crowded. Squirrel Girl is also hired as Danielle’s nanny. The only reason I reviewed #7 a 9 and not a 10 is because it is revealed that Logan and Squirrel Girl used to have sex 😂
