    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Apr 30, 2014

    Its all coming together and Im finally getting a solid, firm grasp not only on Incursions, but how theyre stopped and exactly at what cost. This is the most interesting issue yet as, for the first time, Hickman appears poised to deliver an actual fight between the two Incursion worlds heroes rather than simply having a doomsday weapon OR having the Incursion World inhabited by pure antagonists like the Mapmakers or Black Priests. This is blurring the already shaky moral ground upon which the Illuminati stands and now, as weve grown to know the denizens of this new Earth, it makes things even more complicated.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 1, 2014

    Much like Avengers #28, New Avengers #17 is able to move past the series' recent woes with a much tighter and more gripping script. The focus hasn't changed from the previous issue, but the way Hickman blends scenes of the latest parallel Earth with those of the Illuminati is far more satisfying. Read Full Review

    I like this dichotomy that Hickman is creating, having the New Avengers face a group of pure heroes, while they have kept so many secrets from their comrades and I'm sure those secrets will come back to bite them in the ass. New Avengers continues to be my favourite book from Marvel, as it never ceases to build from issue to issue. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Magen Cubed Apr 30, 2014

    For these reasons, New Avengers #17 is a good read from start to finish. Strong scripting from Hickman and solid artwork from Morales and Martin keep things moving along at an engaging clip and muster some much-needed empathy from this otherwise dour book. Im hoping this series continues its current upswing and we get more issues like this in the future. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - liamkelleher333 May 6, 2014

    Topping the issue of is a beautiful cover by Leinil Francis Yu which serves to whet the appetite for his upcoming return to the Avengers book. The way the logo is incorporated into the cover design is absolutely fantastic and very much in keeping with the innovative design work that has been a staple of this books covers since its relaunch under Hickman and company. The issue is worth buying for the cover alone. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Todd Frazier May 2, 2014

    Namor and Black Panther are given a chance to mend some wounds and wax philosophic in this months New Avengers. Their similar background does not mean that they share similar points of view. They realize that if the world they live in is to survive then they must come to terms with one another. Read Full Review
