    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jan 19, 2018

    "No Surrender" is a big deal on its own merit, not because Marvel wants you to think so. The weekly format and lack of marketing pressure makes it really easy to enjoy this massive Avengers story. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jan 22, 2018

    The story is moving at a deliberate pace, but the visuals remain staggeringly lush. I'm going to continue to follow, but I'd like to see more of the story revealed and some interaction between the heroes and the villains. Voyager is a very interesting character. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Jan 17, 2018

    Narrated by Falcon, Avengers #676 follows similar story structure to the previous issue, with the narrator giving us bookends for a major development. In this case, that development is two-pronged: the aforementioned collection of villainy and the cliffhanger that closes this issue out. Im all-in with this Avengers adventure, especially since Avengers #676 expands the horizon of battle, widens the cast of characters, and brings something new to a story that has a classic Avengers feel.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 17, 2018

    This is a good issue that reveals key details and gets the villain's into the story too. Underneath this story are a few mysteries that'll titillate and get folks wanting more too. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 17, 2018

    It feels like a lot of the recent stories have promised “epic” and have failed but this one has delivered so far with two issues that up the action and danger and tease out the mystery of it all. This is an “event” that's paying off and the weekly pace is helping a ton so far. I know I wouldn't want to wait a month or even another week for this fast paced adventure. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason Dincauze Jan 17, 2018

    But the thing about this issue that will probably make it a modern classic is the stunning cover by Mark Brooks. Brooks has escalated his game to an astonishing degree, from his more cartoonish work in the 00s to this rendered, Norman Rockwell-esque style that is making the case that he is in the upper echelon of comic artists. Marvel needs to get him doing interiors, paired with a superstar writer, on something evergreen, something that could see him being spoken of in the same breath as Esad Ribic or even Alex Ross. He certainly deserves it.B+ Read Full Review

    DisKingdom.com - Roger Palmer Jan 18, 2018

    Once again, the Avengers continues to tell a interesting story that has some major aspects to it and it's certainly peaked my interest in this series and I certainly want to keep turning the pages to find out what's happening next, which is the one problem, since we know so little after reading it, but I'm sure it'll become clearer as it goes on.

    AVENGERS #676 continues "No Surrender". This issue gives us more information on Voyager, and the character introductions leave readers on edge. While it is confusing at times, the artwork from Larraz and Curiel continues to carry this series. It's still a must read. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - Michael 'Ace' M... Jan 22, 2018

    Avengers: No Surrender continues to keep me excited as a reader. I don't exactly like the Black Order or this new Lethal Legion, but they just seem to be there to get us to bigger things to come. This issue featured great art and a lot of terrific character moments. Plus, they managed to integrate Voyager into Avengers history without being overbearing. It's not easy to balance all those things, but No Surrender is making it look easy. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Chaston Jan 26, 2018

    This story has the potential to be a really fun ride. There are plenty of elements to this story that any reader would be happy with. A worldwide crisis, villains galore, lives hanging in the balance, mystery, and intrigue. So why worry right? Voyager is the only thing that can make or break this. And it's a valid concern considering we've been through this song and dance before. While Waid, Ewing, and Zub are good writers. They're skating on thin ice just to pull this off as it is. Not just to make Voyager work but also give you a good Avengers story overall. So far, so good" Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jan 17, 2018

    Moving at a frustrating pace and hampered by start-and-stop character work, Avengers #676 does little to justify its new weekly format and instead feels like more padding, which isn't ideal this early in the story. Though loaded for bear once again with some truly stellar artwork from David Curiel and Pepe Larraz, I sincerely hope Al Ewing, Jim Zub, and Mark Waid's scripting starts to matching pace with the artwork soon because an audience's patience can only go so far.

    A lot more details are introduced and I am getting really excited about this. It's definitely got that big "epic" feeling to it, and so far it's been executed very well.

    Very well done issue that builds on the mystery and keeps the classic Avengers story feel going. Pepe Larraz is fantastic as usual.

    I wanted to hate this story when I found out they were doing weekly books. It is doing a good job of revealing enough information while still holding back for mystery. There is reason to distrust Voyager, and also see her as a new hero. The game that is hinted at between the Lethal Legion and the Black Order was intriguing. It left me interested in going forward. The art varied for me but was never bad. This feels like a great celebration of the Avengers Legacy.

    I love the inclusion of the Black Order and I’m not as big as a fan of the Lethal Legion but this arc is very interesting. Still disappointed so many Avengers are frozen but still a lot of great characters

    The bad who Jan 18, 2018

    The fact that it's a weekly release serves this story really well. They can litterally put cliffhangers and every endings and it will never be too frustrating because you'll have the answers in just 7 days. Meanwhile, it's a beautifully drawn comic and it's full of mysteries and questions. It's fast paced and full of great action sequences too. It's not perfect though. The banters between the different teams already start to feel forced upon the readers and sometime completely useless to the plot. Yes, we know, heroes are human too, but we expect them act heroically too, not just like school kids. To damn earth is missing, wake the hell up! That being said, it's still a great comic and a great event.

    Ok that was weird. Nice but very off in the same time. I still don't like Voyager despite all the effort of the writers. Still don't trust her.
    At least we have a explanation for why she do not help the avengers before (I want to argue that they forgot the Heroes Reborn counter earth time, or the Age of Apocalypse/House of M change of timeline which should have had the same effect).
    But they succeed to make her a leader even if she doesn't want the position. I'm a little disappointed about Rogue & Roberto quarrel.
    I'm happy to see that the Black order presence did not involve obligatory Thanos (I bet on the grandmaster now ^^).
    I wonder if this new lethal legion appear somewhere else before. The Captain glory outfit is t more

    I liked this more than the previous issue. This issue did had a stupid start but it picks up the excitement as it progresses. By stupid, i meant some child arguement that just made the characters in this book feel more like kindagarten students than Avengers characters and all those so called 'Avengers' characters are too busy giving varities of standing postures than actually doing something heroic. Anyways, apart from the flaws, i got to say that i loved the fight between the Black Order and Lethal Legion. This issue also had an interesting end, that made me want to pick up the next one immediately.

    The writing by Mark Waid and team are OK. The art by Pepe Larraz was good, sometimes has flaws. The colouring by David Curiel was more

    It seems odd that that this mess of a setup is meant only to provide some spotlight on Falcon. I'm actually as surprised as he was that he is allowed to lead. If not for the fantastic art, I'm not sure I'd have any interest in this book.

    The Avengers gush over the resurrection of the saintly Valerie "Voyager" Vector, a previously-unknown founding Avenger. Meanwhile, two teams of villains, the Black Order and the Lethal Legion, appear in Egypt. Before their mysterious masters set them against each other, Corvus Glaive takes the initiative and strikes at the Avengers in a ridiculously lazy Fatality Fakeout. Yeah, I'm sure the team's gonna suffer a *lot* of casualties in chapter 2 of a 16-part story.

    The Voyager introduction is pretty stellar thanks to Pepe Larraz's scrupulous retro art. The fact that she supposedly disappeared during the Grandmaster's debut - also Marvel's first "Contest of Champions"-type story - is super suggestive.

    I refuse to ignore more
