    Chuck's Comic Of The Day

    It’s a thoughtful, clever script by Jonathan Hickman and amazing, over-the-top artwork by Mike Deodato. Best of all, it’s a fight between Marvel heroes unlike any other.

    The whole crossover thing (it will even be continued in the next issue of NEW AVENGERS) isnt bad on its face, its just a bit disappointing that a series that had so perfectly sidestepped all the potholes that come with needing to read other books in order to follow the plot finally stepped in one. Its still a very, very good issue, the writing and visuals are beautiful and heartfelt while still having an edge of both desperation and hard-hitting action. Its a tough balancing act to achieve, but this issue manages it with aplomb.

    Comic Book Herald

    While “Part 1” rightfully denotes copious amounts of word intensity that one expects from writer Jonathan Hickman, the set-up is punctuated along the way by formidable action sequences courtesy of Mike Deodato and color artist Frank Martin. Dialed in extremely tight for this month-long “crossover within the crossover”, the character drama elevates as well with the S.H.I.E.L.D. Avengers portrayed for the first time as anything other than cold fascists. Well, some of them anyway.

    With the focus more on action than plot progression, this issue isn’t necessarily the most compelling to come out of this “Time Runs Out” storyline. Still, Hickman defintiely gives Mike Deodato plenty of great material to work with, especially the shots of Jim Rhodes’ War Machine army or Captain Marvel battling Hulk.
