    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Garza Mar 26, 2015

    Aside from my usual gripe that if you haven't been reading this book it will make absolutely no sense, I have no other qualms with this issue. Things are really starting to amp up, in action and in story. Don't forget we now know the real identity of Rabum Alal, and he most certainly has a plan up his sleeve, so maybe there's hope? Probably not as the Beyonders specifically say that extinction is the only way to conclude their experiment. I only hope that we get a better understanding of the Beyonders' motivations, why they wanted this, or if they do it because they simply are "beyond us." No matter how this series concludes I've been along for the ride thus far and I plan to see where Hickman leads us going into Secret Wars. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Mar 26, 2015

    Hickman and Deodato have taken the game to a new level as Time Runs Out nears its conclusion, and I'm more excited about Avengers and New Avengers than I think I have ever been (and that's saying something). This story is massive and New Avengers #32 shows that Hickman and Marvel aren't playing this safe: huge events occur with primary characters in the Marvel U and if you've been enjoying these books, there's another fantastic chapter in the saga here with New Avengers #32.

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Mar 25, 2015

    New Avengers is coming to a close. I’ll dearly miss this book once it’s done but Hickman is ending the book at the top of its game. Issue #32 provides a true introduction to the threat that is the Beyonders but it doesn’t forget to give us strong character beats for everyone included in the issue. This felt like a penultimate issue as Hickman has begun racing to the finish. This is the payoff we were waiting for and it’s awesome! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 25, 2015

    After a slow-moving issue #31, New Avengers bounces back with a more exciting follow-up. This chapter has spectacle and drama to spare, and it certainly heightens the sense of danger as the Beyonders begin making their move and Hickman's endgame draws closer. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Matt Lehn Mar 28, 2015

    It's characterization and dialogue like this that makes one wish the writer was sticking around for other projects post-Secret Wars. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Zachary Ford Mar 26, 2015

    Definitely a solid follow-up, action packed, with great character rapport, I am fully invested in Hickman at this point, and I cannot wait til the next installment and will truly be sad when it is over and done with, but look forward to the new status quo it will bring. Again, hopefully with less of The Orb. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Mar 27, 2015

    Again, it's a triumph of tone as the story is raised to epic levels, but a passing failure of plot as most of the characters meet their fate with no real emotional resonance. The story does confirm some details about the Beyonders, and there is a contender for All-Time Great Thor Moments, making this overall an enjoyable reading experience, thanks as well to some noble and momentous artwork.

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Mar 30, 2015

    And so it went, that gods who traveled to spaces unseen by human eyes were trampled in the unbending march of time. And what's even more tragic is that the story continued on without them. New Avengers #32 isn't the best issue of the series so far, but it is still a required one. Jonathan Hickman, Mike Deodato Jr. and Frank Martin have delivered an issue that coldly went about the dark deeds that were needed in order to get us in the headspace required for the upcoming finale. If New Avengers #32 is any indication, than things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get better and all we can do is read the stories, hoping for some version of a happy ending. Whether we get one or not, that still remains to be seen. Read Full Review
