"Jim Shooter (working with first Roger Stern and then David Michelinie) uses the whole universe at his hands here to create a sprawling epic with tons of guest stars.The artwork by George Perez is quite good, although the work that closes out the story, by Sal Buscema and David Wenzel, is not half bad, either!" -- Brian Cronin
"Shooter does a nice job of keeping the characters the focal point and goes a long way towards humanizing Korvac, adding a touch of poignancy to the tale. But for the large battles, he was lucky to have George Pérez and David Wenzel as the art team, since, after all, George is known for his epic sweep (actually starting with this saga). These days, epics run for years and can be found in every title. Back then, this was HUGE and is still fondly remembered. If you have never read this, then treat yourself." -- Robert Greenberger
"In the 1960s, Jim Shooter was a child-prodigy of comics scripting who was writing the Legion of Super-Heroes and Superman before he'd finished High School. When he returned to the industry and gravitated to Marvel Comics, it seemed natural to find him working on a comic with just as many characters as that fabled future super-team. If you want to see what makes Superhero fiction work, and can keep track of nearly two dozen flamboyant characters, this is a fine example of how to make such an unwieldy proposition easily accessible to the new and returning reader." -- Win Wiacek
"I have been hearing about the Michael/Korvac saga and been wanting to read it since I started collecting comics in the mid-80's. I had heard it was THE Avengers story. I had incredibly high expectations. I was not disappointed! The classic team is here. There are intergalactic guest stars. The Marvel characterizations are in play as the heroes argue amongst themselves. And best of all, the villain is cunning, incredibly powerful, and not necessarily even evil! Now that I've read it, I agree that it is THE Avengers story." -- Mark Nowak
"For sheer action, few stories in the long history of the comics medium can approach the Korvac Saga, which combined cosmic scope in the form of the godlike Korvac with down to Earth realism (the Avengers in one sequence have to bus themselves to a battle because their flight clearance has been revoked by the government). Add in guest stars like the Guardians of the Galaxy and villains like Ultron and The Collector and you have the formula for an all-time classic." -- Scott Harris
