    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Nov 19, 2014

    Im not sure well ever get either an info-dump or an issue (or two) that fully explains how it came to this, but even enough pieces to put together a cohesive puzzle would be sufficient at this point. This book typifies the kind of thing that will almost certainly read better in trade, but this issue is the strongest one in awhile, with an amazing creative team using great characters in extremely interesting ways. Its good to see that amidst all these grand, giant ideas that people are still what makes this story tick. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Nov 22, 2014

    New Avengers is a very tightly plotted book. A grandiose story that doesn’t forget to give us incredible characters. Tension continues to build while Hickman presents us with one of the most unpredictable stories I’ve ever read. This is a daunting series to tackle but for those who wish to, it’s tremendously rewarding. Read Full Review

    The Doom material is another reminder of how great the villain fares under Jonathan Hickman's hand, both in terms of his personal menace and his oddly endearing relationship with Valeria Richards. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 20, 2014

    New Avengers #26 slows things down a bit heading into Avengers #38, but gives readers some very important information about what has occurred, and what is on the horizon. We've got some solid plot progression and great character work here, and that's a win. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Garz Nov 21, 2014

    We've all heard it. This May "Time Runs Out." What does that mean for Earth's Mightiest Heroes? This issue shows just how far the Mighty have fallen as we finally learn the fate of Tony Stark. While new readers will definitely have problems following the events this issue, fans of the series, and of Hickman will revel in the story that's unfolding. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Nicholas Turner Nov 21, 2014

    You have to admit that this is one of the series that everybody is talking about. It goes to show the power of the story in which people are still debatingthe ethics of all the characters involved. This really is a morally gray series for people out there wanting more complexity to their blockbuster stories. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Michael Roder Nov 22, 2014

    This is another solid entry, in a very solid series. Both main Avengers comics feel like they're ramping up to something massive, but they've also been ramping for what seems like a while. The tension is high, and there have been several key reveals relating to the timeskip of issue #24, but it still feels like not much is actually happening. In the end though, this comic is so well put together by Hickman and Walker, that even if not much happens, it's still a satisfying read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Matt Lehn Nov 23, 2014

    All of this being said, considering who visits imprisoned Anthony and the overall tone of the issue's central conversation, it may have served equally well as a chapter of the adjectiveless core Avengers title. As a related aside, this week's issue of Avengers also functions as a fantastic companion update to the "where are they now" scorecard. It also features a faction of New Avengers, as denoted in the "Cast" page. Slight irony aside, it does suggest that maybe Hickman has too much story for the average twenty-page delivery system to accomodate. It's not a bad thing by any means but if this persists, one must wonder how pacing will progress as the sprawling epic funnels into a singular event series by Summer 2015. Read Full Review
