    Shoot The Breeze Comics - James Portis Feb 3, 2017

    U.S. Avengers is a lot of exposition with a little bit of humor. It goes in depth about the villain and where he and this futuristic Captain America come from and builds well making him a pretty good new low class enemy with a somewhat larger scheme. The art by Paco Medina is very stylized. Much like Brett Booth, penciler for DC's Titans, I love when artists dont try to hard and give me comics that have a stylized touch that lets you know theyre drawn characters but arent trying too hard to simulate real life or so animated that it feels too much like a television show. Wish all this in mind I deem US Avengers #2 a very good read. Catch you guys next time and God bless the USA. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 20, 2017

    The fact that this issue came out the week it did is no mistake, and that's all part of the fun, as U.S. Avengers #2 follows up on the strong debut with a slightly less bombastic but no less entertaining issue, featuring strong art and wicked social commentary. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Jan 20, 2017

    I really love this series so far. This is exactly what I needed from Marvel, after the doom and gloom of Civil War II. I am also glad that Al Ewing is getting more comics, as he has shown he can really write not only great stories, but of different styles as well. He also writes Ultimates, and the squared renumbering version of Ultimates, and they are consistently mentioned by most people as some Marvel's best books. Ewing will also be writing the upcoming Inhumans comic, Royals. Basically, my point is, the more Ewing, the better. You should at least check out U.S.Avengers, because it is different than anything else out there, and I am happy to say that it wasn't a one hit wonder, and the second issue is great silly fun.

    While not as explosive, the second issue of U.S. Avengers is still delightfully bombastic. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 21, 2017

    Honestly, I'm not entirely sure what I'm recommending about this issue. As I think about it, there's a lot to dislike. It's all either exposition or a scene at the end where most of the team just stands around in tuxedos while Roberto does all the talking. But despite that, this issue was still a lot of fun to read. The creative team made it work and they made it work well, and that's something to look forward to in comics. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Robert Reed Jan 20, 2017

    U.S.Avengers #2 is quite a bit of fun, though some may find it too expository in nature. The artwork really helps the narrative flow quickly, and Ewing's grasp of the characters keeps the read from getting too bogged down. While not as strong as the debut issue, U.S.Avengers #2 helps set the table for the conflict at hand. Read Full Review
