    All the while, Acuna is able to capture all the epic spectacle and intimate character drama at play in this issue. Acuna is an artist whose work always seemed to degrade over time on any ongoing project, and yet this series proves that doesn't have to be the case. At this point it's disappointing to note that Acuna is only confirmed for one more issue on the series. Clearly he and Remender make a great team, and certainly a more functional one than the Avengers team they're depicting here. Read Full Review

    As a speculative aside, I want to mention that it was leaked a while ago that the big summer event for 2014 would be a culmination of the events happening in all of Rick Remender's series, as well as in Jason Aaron's work (which often ties over). I'm just going to state that it's probably going to have something to do with the "Red Onslaught." Read Full Review

    Daniel Acuña’s art drives Remender’s words home. The kind of darkness the writer is trying to communicate would fail if not for Acuña’s pencils. Acuña works much the way Remender does. Every single page is densely packed with characters, backgrounds, action and details. Most of the time, the panels can’t hold the amount of action Acuña is bringing forth. It’s a perfect marriage of art and text. Read Full Review

    This was an amazing issue, and although not one of the best in the series, not far off. It had amazing dialogue, as well as phenomenal action sequences, and despite the slight imperfections in the artwork, and the odd patch of slowness, this was an outstanding issue, and has me excited for the next. Due to all this I'd highly recommend this issue, and the story so far, as on a whole it's been fantastic. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Sep 1, 2013

    Uncanny Avengers is one of Marvels best books on the shelf. The writing of Rick Remender makes this book worth checking out. The beautiful covers by John Cassaday are also a great selling point, and Daniel Acuas art is beginning to pick up steam. This is a book that will not disappoint. Read Full Review

    Remender's Uncanny Avengers is not Remender's Uncanny X-Force. I know the comparisons are made and this is an epic story but it is a very different one. This one focuses a lot on how the characters view the mutant/human debate whereas the X-Force theme was clearly about how character's deal with the consequences of their actions and how they react to the potential scope of a problem rather than the actual scope of a problem. Still, this is a book that isn't a dime a dozen and it is worth a look. The deeper this book goes the harder it will be to follow. I suggest jumping on now, especially with the ending of this issue basically setting the direction for the issues to come. I recommend checking this out. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Sep 3, 2013

    Daniel Acuna's artwork is always on point and I really enjoyed the direction of the panels involving Scarlett Witch and the Horsemen because it gave off this vibe that one might be playing the other as they discuss their ideology in a dark room. Wanda is trying to make up for past transgressions and is tempted by what she is hearing even though she is verbally flat out refusing their request. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 28, 2013

    The above complaints stand, but this is still a highly entertaining and well-crafted issue. The action may be stiff, but the individual panels are still gorgeous and sometimes a book needs a nice, stable holding pattern issue. Im definitely still anxious to see what happens in the future of this book, especially with the last few pages here, and cant wait to read more, but this particular one felt like it was dragging its feet. That said, its still an absolutely great book and well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Aug 30, 2013

    As always, Acunas artwork truly shines. His strength of line and composition makes for an exciting and visually engaging reading experience, carrying the plot to its tense conclusion in an affective two-page spread. Every page is just lovely to read, with painterly application of the chosen color palettes that give each panel a softened quality. The art, combined with the overall strength of the writing, makes this is a solid issue definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Oct 25, 2013

    "Uncanny Avengers" #13 is definitely above-average issue of a series that's been trudging along for a while, but if you've been hoping for the title to move on so Remender and Acua can move on to new territory, the end is not likely to come anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - MikeFitz538 Aug 29, 2013

    Remender is using furthering the plot lines that he already developed in his run on Uncanny X-Force but in a much grander scale. The team has been divided, not just by space but by their own personal histories and philosophies: and we get a pitch for segregation to one specific character but in fact the entire world.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 29, 2013

    His colors are also quite superb in the same respect, as it does enhance the general tone of the issue considerably. The use of garish colors for the various energy effects and the heavy lighting done with brighter colors do add to the action and toward the alien setting which is heavily featured in this issue. While there is perhaps an overload of exposition and dialogue in this issue, the concepts brought in some of the scenes and the art by Daniel Acua makes this issue enjoyable despite some of its failings.

    PopMatters - Troy Wheatley Sep 4, 2013

    Readers new to Marvel comics (if there are any) must find this hopelessly impenetrable. This is not comics looking for new frontiers, this is comics crawling through its last days, carrying on when all the good stories have been told, a joyless kind of ‘post-comics'. Marvel Comics can go about proclaiming its NOW!-ness all it wants, it will eat itself if it goes on like this, and while it's both unfair and overblown to lay the blame primarily at Remender's doorstep, you have to wonder what the long-term strategy of this approach is. Long-time readers might appreciate the clever character moments in this issue, but what element of this title is going to appeal to other audiences? Remender's meanderings might work with a ‘pretty drawing' artist like Cassaday, and Acuña's style might work with a more straightforward or original writer. For now though this title is on a fast path to becoming an endnote to the Marvel Age. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Sep 2, 2013

    "Uncanny Avengers" #11 is still some way away from being a bad comic, but with this series, it's always hard not to feel as though the creative team is falling short of their capabilities. Readers expect more from Remender and his collaborating artists, not because it's not good, but because they've spectacularly risen to the challenge in the past. Considering the book was originally pushed as the "flagship" for Marvel NOW!, it should at least be challenging pretenders to that throne. As it is, this issue doesn't feel like it's putting up much of a fight. Read Full Review
