    A really great book that feels worthwhile and significant as a tie-in. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Mar 23, 2010

    But in the end, Bendis and McKone and colorisst McCaig leave us with more than just a story about a pair of superhero couples. They leave us with a knife in the gut. A reminder that it's all well and good to make plans for the future, but in a world full of villains and falling cities of the gods, it's more important just to survive. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Travis Walecka Mar 26, 2010

    Now more than ever, Im convinced that Siege will be better read in one giant omnibus that combines some of the events better tie-ins. If New Avengers continues along this upper echelon of quality, itll be imperative to the collection. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Mar 24, 2010

    This is a largely missable issue of New Avengers, and one that makes striking little use of its Siege cover banner. Fans of inter-Avengers romance could find a page or two of interest here, but for the most part all the juicy Avengery goodness related to Siege is being found in the core title. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Mar 29, 2010

    New Avengers #63 did not give us anything new to add to Siege but it was a fun issue. Bendis did a nice job with giving Luke, Jessica, Clint, and Bobbi some time to shine in this event with this issue. Now this issue is not a must read to understand Siege so while it was a fun issue it was also an issue you can pass on getting. And with the $3.99 price tag for the issue it is hard to recommend this issue to anyone who is not already reading this title. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 1, 2010

    The fact that we get some honest character development in between the sturm und drang makes this Avengers book work for me where the others didn't, and the Luke Cage moments were worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis May 1, 2010

    This issue focuses on the relationship between Mockingbird and Ronin. They are powerless Avengers, married, but forwarded in the middle of the action and plots against the Avengers. Will their relationship last longer than the next fight with the villain next door? This is another filler issue the way Bendis writes them when he is doing a major crossover. It ads some details to the bigger conflict, but is otherwise somewhat irrelevant. His Dark Avengers series has more juicy details. Here, he tries to do what several writers have attempted over the years. Hes trying to prove that Ronin and Mockingbird are not clones of DC Comics Green Arrow and Black Canary. Its not convincing and the quick wordy jabs the characters spat at one another do little to convince. The dialogue is weak and hip. The artwork is good but not memorable. Frankly, Im not sure why Im reading this series. Its been bad for months now. Read Full Review
