    Chuck's Comic Of The Day

    This has been a serious, complex story – and while it’s not for everyone, it’s an amazing, thoughtful and carefully devised work, and well worth sorting out.

    And it’s all masterfully drawn by Yu, of course. Sometimes his style might be a little too heavy on the black lines, but he captures all of the emotion and tension in place in this great issue. I almost don’t want to see the world jump ahead 8 months, because I want to see the Avengers vs. the Illuminati right now!

    Avengers #34 strikes a great balance of conceptual time travel chaos and character driven story as the book heads toward Time Runs Out. Hickman is building toward something of an Infinity-level scope again, and I can’t wait to see what it is as the events of the end of this issue start to have an impact on the Marvel Universe as a whole. There are big things coming, Marvel fans, and they start right here in Avengers.

    Leinil Francis Yu handles the artwork once again, and his style certainly works well with the “end of the line” type of setting that is featured throughout the majority of the issue. For all of the inherent craziness of the story, Yu does a great job of keeping the story easy to follow visually.

    This was an exceptional character piece focusing on Cap, yet it never lost track of the story, which could have easily happened given the time travel nature of the story. Hickman did an exceptional job keeping this story tightly focused and moving forward through time. Hickman’s run on Avengers could be some of the best Avenger’s stories in the franchise. With the last page, it looks like the next arc will be equally as compelling.

    Comic Book Herald

    Not much of a jab at the book itself, but this is NOT an issue to just pick up off the shelf. A ton of backstory has happened, and even though there is the obligatory recap page at the beginning, this issue is the culmination of a lot of storytelling. I have been enjoying AVENGERS as of late, as well as NEW AVENGERS and UNCANNY AVENGERS. All of these titles have been building this bigger storyline, which is leading towards the new event, AXIS. So if you haven’t been up to date on Avengers stories thus far, I definitely recommend buying some issues prior to this one as well, or at the very least getting the story synopsis from the internet.
