    This is a terrific-looking comic book that captures a lot of the old Avengers spirit. Izaakse's Yanick Paquette-meets-George Perez style compliments this book well, and the return of Beast and Wonder Man also goes a long way towards establishing a good mix of modern and classic superhero vibes.

    Uncanny Avengers #28 promises a lot of fun and adventure in the near-future. Wonder Man and Beast are back, and writer Jim Zub is firing on all cylinders. This is my favorite Avenger book right now, and it gets a strong recommendation. Give this one a try. Read Full Review

    The primer pages in the back are fantastic, a sincere reminder of the Avengers' beginning, and how different all the many incarnations of the team have been. Read Full Review

    If you've been curious about the Avengers (or at least this version), this issue is a good starting point. You get a good mix of character development and their histories, but doled out in manageable amounts and a little action to boot. If you aren't sure who the characters are and how they belong together, this issue will set you up pretty well for the future. If you are conversant with the current state of the various Avenger teams, this is a nice break from world-ending battles. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ivan Alino Nov 7, 2017

    Zub finally addresses a lot of questions he left out since he took over writing the book. Throw in a few fun traditional crime-fighting moments by Beast and Wonder Man, the series is able to pick itself back together after losing a little of its identity during Secret Empire tie-ins. All in all, another entertaining story for the Unity Squad. Read Full Review

    Well Thank You Jim Zub once more. In not much page he pinpoint all the mistake writer does on Beast. He does some good point of Simon too, but forget the Avenger/New Avengers annual where he finished prisoner ^^ ...
    So Simon are in a new way of acting as a super-héros, without fighting (But more hugging ^^).
    I also like Janet/Rogue conversation, or Pietro & Emily once (Once more Pietro kind of fall for a Inhuman ^^). But I was a little bowered about the one around Johny & Reed's legacy.
    The art is perfect, funny & all. I love it.

    So nice to get a change of pace and a chance to catch up with the characters and where they're at. Action fans might not like this issue but I thought it was one of the best for ages. Since Zub took over there hasn't been much chance to stop and take stock and have some character development. This issue makes up for that and made me re-interested in the team.

    A round-robin survey issue reintroduces the Uncanny Avengers team, now with added Beast and Wonder Man. For a character-driven issue, there's a surprising lot of action and an impressive cliffhanger. Sean Izaakse's art is also pushing close to flawless. The only weakness here is that the character attention is spread so evenly that nobody gets much insight and there's not actually much development going on. It's still plenty of fun, and the Hank & Simon bro-mance is well worth a little spotlight.
