  1. Can’t wait. I’ve loved every issue of this so far.

  2. I am very interested to see how events pick up after last issue’s ending.

  3. The preview looks so fucking good, really love Epting’s art big time!

  4. Considering how last issue of Avengers ends with a tie-in to Tony’s new weapon from last issue….I expect we might see some Starbrand in here eventually.

  5. I’m really tied with either this, Manhattan Projects or Uncanny Avengers as my pick of the wick. Decisions, decisions???!!

  6. Epting gets my POW automatically.

  7. This series is incredible, I kind of wish this was the main Avengers book so more people would be reading it (plus I’m not as satisfied with the main Avengers series but that’s a different thought entirely).

  8. I swear one of the great ladies was Angela Neil Gaiman’s character from spawn. I know she’s coming at the end of age of ultron.

  9. This is probably the best issue to date so far.

    I love how Hickman is giving us a series where we have no idea what’s going on. Was not expecting the fall out of the previous issue to come about so quickly. But I also liked we got to know more about Black Swan and her origin was pretty interesting. That and how can you not love a Dr. Doom tease for next month? Also, solid work by Epting as usual.


  10. Man Hickman has these pompous asshole’s voices DOWN! So great! Next issue will be Namor and Doom just talking shit to everyone.

    I loved how this Black Swan – nearly in the same breath – complimented and then insulted Beast. The whole thing about there were many Beasts involved across the multiverse – and all that jazz, but then a second a later said the whole thing was a cowardly choice. Yay! This book is the best!

    • You said it all zlbenson. This book is great. And yea, Epting is just amazing. Great to see Black Bolt speak! And how about Strange getting dissed, totally funny!

  11. I read 100 Hickman books this week and thought this was the worse only getting a 4 star review from me. From what I hear most people are loving this but Im really not sure whats happening here. I actually preferred Avengers proper

  12. I don’t see where this is going and it’s starting to get repetitive… My instincts tell me it will pay off, but I don’t know how many more issues I can take at this slow-burn pace.
