An alien attack. A missing piece of wormhole tech. A city warped, its citizens transformed into hideous creatures loyal to an Empress from the far side of the universe. And a certain Captain Marvel, looking to her fellow Avengers with murderous intent... Plunge into the action and take a deep breath because you will not be allowed up for air as a thrilling new series kicks off in the strongest, strangest way possible.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 8, 2022

    There are eight characters. And then theres one major villain. Its a big ensemble for a story with no introduction that drops right in the middle of the climax. Its all juggled with great finesse by the entire team. The fact that the story involves quantum teleportation is a pretty cool thematic synchronicity. The next issue finds a similar group of Avengers who have been captured by mega-villain Doctor Doom. Somehow Doom has gotten ahold of Captain Americas shield on the cover. That cant be good.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Weird Science Jim Sep 8, 2022

    Im excited about this book as it provides readers a cinema homage as well as a relaxed Avengers team. SureArrok makes a pretty awesome villain and how she can consolidate her armythat is reminiscent of an Ant-Man maneuver. Again, this is a fun read and one in which any Avenger fan who wishes to lighten the load of a heavy dialogue comic can get into! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Sep 7, 2022

    All-Out Avengers #1 is an energetic comic that is unashamed of putting the action first. While there is a plot that will link the issues, it appears that it is merely a setup for the characters to go into battle. It is a fun issue that doesnt let up from its intensity from the opening page to the last. The art isnt perfect but what it does do is capture the kinetic motion that is required. How this concept plays out over multiple issues will be fascinating to discover. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathan Simmons Sep 7, 2022

    'All-Out Avengers' totally delivers on its promise of wall-to-wall action. This is an extremely entertaining comic that captures Earth's Mightiest Heroes at their best. However, the darkness creeping on the edges is what will keep readers hooked. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Sep 7, 2022

    While the issue delivers on the promise of being action from the jump, it lacks the necessary components to be a cohesive story to pull everything together. The dialogue is light, but seems uneven, as Landy seems unsure of the cast, and their characterizations. We have a couple of stellar nuggets, but theyre few and far between. Lands art here is serviceable, but nothing to write home about. An uneven start to the Earths mightiest. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Sep 7, 2022

    OverallThe concept is fun. The story is even more so. But the line-art is distracting to the point that it's impossible to recommend this without reservations. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Chase Magnett Sep 7, 2022

    Without the necessary style or skill to make the artwork its own draw, there's simply not enough here to guarantee any reader is compelled to wait for All-Out Avengers #2. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 8, 2022

    All-Out Avengers #1 has an interesting concept behind it as we start in the middle of a story already well into development. Derek Landy and Greg Land just never do anything with the potential of this direction with the threat the Avengers face off against being the most generic villains that could've been chosen. This is definitely hard pass as I won't ever think about as a comic book I should read beyond the first issue. Read Full Review
