    If more superhero comics were half as good as Uncanny Avengers, we'd be living in a new golden age. This comic doesn't have to rely on stunts to justify itself as a must-read - instead, Remender and Acuna dig deeply into each member of the Avengers Unity Squad to stir up drama and tension. If you read one superhero comic this week, Uncanny Avengers #13 needs to be it. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Oct 28, 2013

    This was a fantastic issue, as although it's still mainly set-up work it did it in a very dramatic way that has me hooked for the next issue. It also had some shocking and intense moments, with some fun action sequences as well. Due to all this I'd highly recommend this issue, and the series so far, as although it hasn't been quite as good in recent months, it's starting to gradually get back to that high level of quality that the first five issues of this story had.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 23, 2013

    Speaking of art, this issue marks Daniel Acuna's final bow before Steve McNiven takes over next month. Acuna sends the series off in style, with vibrant, moody pages that rank among the best of his too-brief tenure with Uncanny Avengers. He's really given the series a distinct look and feel that McNiven's more realistic and detail-oriented style may have trouble replicating. We'll find out next month. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Oct 24, 2013

    Bringing in some development, neat action and some meaningful character interactions, Remender is upping his game on this title as this issue provide some interesting and exciting prospects for its future. With the return of Acua, it also provides some especially strong art and colorization which really enhance the whole thing to another level. When all is said and done, this is a vast improvement over the latest issue. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Oct 24, 2013

    Things are reaching their boiling point overall. Loyalties in question, questionable actions to expect, and there's still that one death they have been hyping up which could be anyone right now. Everything has led to this upcoming issue having Rogue Vs. the Scarlet Witch. Since the beginning they have represented to sides of the same coin and now we await to see what happens when one of them finally decides to take action against the other, that being Rogue who isn't all too appreciative of anyone who's not with them.

    Marvel Disassembled - browncoat1993 Oct 25, 2013

    Along with its ideas and insights into major Marvel characters, Uncanny Avengers #13 is a visual delight. Daniel Acuna uses water colors to capture ideological conflicts through art. The Avengers Unity Squad wears the bright colors of superheroes while the Horsemen wear muted versions of their old costumes. Though it is not photorealistic, Acuna's art has a kind of energy that flows from panel to panel. His fight scenes are fluid and well-composed. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Oct 28, 2013

    "Uncanny Avengers" on the whole has been an interesting book with incredibly strong visuals, and this is one of the better issues as the plot and character work drives toward a powerful conclusion. Plus, even though I am endlessly tired of seeing heroes fighting heroes, I confess that Rogue vs. Scarlet Witch (as is promised in the next book) holds some guilty pleasure appeal. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 24, 2013

    Uncanny Avengers #13 continues to be a book that exists outside greater continuity and as the team delivers something all their own they earn a recommendation from me. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Oct 23, 2013

    I dont know what the future holds for this title, but this issue is still an absolutely great one. I didnt even mention Wasp and Havok taking down Dark Banshee in the opening pages, and its one of the best scenes in there. This books transformation from a concerning trend to a must-read is one of the most gratifying in Marvel NOW and an absolute joy to see. Rick Remender was one of my favorite writers, between X-Force and Fear Agent, with a solid Secret Avengers run, and its great to see his talents continue in a high-profile team book. Daniel Acua, Ive mentioned before, was an unlikely choice for a high-science fiction styled traditional superhero book, but hes worked out to a tee, proving himself an extremely versatile artist, and whether or not my concerns wind up having any weight, this is still a great issue with some incredible moments.

    This issue was solid, with nice bonding between Havok, Wasp and Cap, and to see Havok leading due to Cap's understandable injury. Read Full Review
