    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Sep 18, 2013

    Whether youre fully invested in Infinity or not, whether youre a longtime reader of New Avengers or just love superhero comics in general, theres not a single reason not to pick up this title. Grab the previous ones if you can find them, but rest assured that this is an easy book to follow and catch up on. I feel like how great it is might be getting swallowed up or overshadowed by the other Infinity titles because, as I stated before, this would have worked without the tie-in. Absolute highest recommendation. Read Full Review

    Deodato also does a great job conveying the intensity and weight of the moments, from the larger action to the smaller moments between characters. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 18, 2013

    New Avengers #10 is another extremely strong issue in this Infinity event from a very skilled creative team. It is a must read for any Infinity readers, even as a setup issue, as it lays the groundwork for things that are going to be huge going forward. Quite simply, another win for Hickman.

    That right there is some alien bastardry that you can't wait to see smacked down. Hickman has earned the trust that he will deliver that in a very satisfying, yet non-pandering way. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Sep 20, 2013

    As usual, artist Mike Deodato delivers with his stunningly impressive capture of both the Illuminati and everything else as they search for Thanos' son. Everything from how intimidating Beast looks, how powerful Dr. Strange looks, to the layout of the search for Thanos' son. This including the very ends as he can make things look so gloom and doom as the scene switches from normal to all red, indicating an incursion. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Sep 19, 2013

    Of course, part of the interest comes from the tonally-fitting art of Mike Deodato. His heavy use of shadows combined with his clean lines really bring out the darker aspects of this issue. His characters are also very expressive in their poses and faces, although not all of them are perfects. There are some rare cases of goofy-looking faces in this issue, like Black Bolt in the first few pages, but overall the heaviness of the situation they are in can be clearly seen on the character's face. What is close to being flawless, however, are the backgrounds. There is a level of craft and care that really brings the quality behind them to the forefront, as Deodato shows the richness and mystical aspect of the Marvel universe. The panelling is also quite good, keeping a nice flow without being too experimental for its own good. This is a solid effort from Deodato. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Sep 18, 2013

    My favorite part of this issue was getting to see Thanos deal with the failure of Black Dwarf. It's about time we got to see the big bad do something aside from delve out orders and smile that wicked smile of his. Not that hearing him talk is bad or anything. In fact, Hickman's dialogue for Thanos is nothing if not dripping with epic evil sauce. While nothing can touch the original incarnation of the character, Hickman writes the best version of Thanos in the modern age of comics. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Sep 20, 2013

    NEW AVENGERS #10 continues to a string of awesome that has Hickman and Deodato firing on all cylinders. There's a lot to like here, not the least of which is the art and general storytelling. However, there's some well-done and subtle character work being done here that works really well, and it's definitely part of what is making Infinity so special as a whole. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 21, 2013

    Although not quite as good as the last issue this was yet another brilliant instalment in the Infinity event, following on from Infinity #2 perfectly. The issue itself was very dramatic and exciting, though it did lack in action, being more of a set-up issue. I would however highly recommend this issue, and the event so far, and will be moving straight onto Infinity #3 which was also out this week. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Sep 20, 2013

    Even though this issue does have its faults there are very few of them to be honest; aside from what I said about the seemingly anticlimactic Thanos Seed story and Rockygon Boltagon there's not many huge flaws here. "New Avengers" #10 continues to delivery what the rest of Infinity already has: an event comic that truly delivers on the promise of being called an "event." There is stuff going on here that seems highly likely to actually cause a change in the Marvel Universe in a meaningful way. That may seem a little cynical, Marvel's definitely been shaking up their status quo in recent years, but usually as the footnote of a not-great story (AvX and Age of Ultron come to mind.) Here though, we're getting an amazing story that simply could not be told in a normal series. Infinity, and its tie-ins, are a genuine event and one you should be heavily invested in(human.)

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 23, 2013

    "New Avengers" #10 is essentially "Infinity" #2.5 -- rather essential reading for a greater appreciation of the full scope of the threats the Avengers and the Earth face. Hickman has been deliberate in building the relationships between members of the Illuminati and equally deliberate in illustrating the constant stream of overlapping, world-shattering threats characters in the Marvel Universe must face every day. As a companion to "Infinity," "New Avengers" #10 is worth reading and provides an anxious adventure. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Sep 23, 2013

    This is another very strong issue for New Avengers. Another fine example of good comic books not needing cataclysmic battles to make the comic a real page turner, this issue serves well to set up the next few months of stories in both this title and Infinity. Thanos has arrived, the incursions continue to threat Earth, and the Illuminati stand divided and compromised. Whatever happens next, you don't want to miss it" Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Sep 18, 2013

    New Avengers keeps up the high quality of the Infinity story. With so much at stake, the Illuminati is really in a nail-biting situation, which is something that these characters, as well as Hickman,thrive in. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Sep 20, 2013

    I wouldn't call this a great issue, and if you're not following all the Infinity stuff or the previous 9 issues this probably isn't a good place to start. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 21, 2013

    The Infinity storyline continues, and for once, it's not half bad. Between New Avengers #10 and Infinity #3, I think Hickman actually stepped up his game this week. At least a little bit. Read Full Review
