    This is writing at its best, period! Waid, Zub, and Ewing managed to pull off what is so difficult. Introduce a new character, flawlessly integrate them into the story without taking anything away from the other Avengers. And give you a great story all the way around. I can't wait to find out what comes next! I'm all in! Any Avengers fan should be all in too! Read Full Review

    This book justifies the use of the word “epic”. Wow! With characterization this good, action this excellent, and visuals this good one cannot help but squeal in joy knowing there's another issue out next week. This is outstanding fun. Read Full Review

    Another issue in the No Surrender tale, another cliffhanger. This is what Avengers and event comics should be. Ive had almost seventy pages of Avengers comics this year already, but I want more. This is a fun superheroic, universe-saving saga in the making. Read Full Review

    Through the unfolding events of Avengers #677, this was yet another satisfying chapter to No Surrender. We may not see the full picture just yet, but we know enough to understand exactly what is at stake here. Well maybe all that is needed to know is at stake when two warring groups decide Earth should be a playground for their battles against one another. Nonetheless, next week holds interest for these heroes racing against time to find out who is behind this madness. Read Full Review

    So far, "No Surrender" is accomplishing what its creators set out to do by unifying the Avengers line and building a conflict worthy of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 24, 2018

    I'll admit I've been skeptical about this event but three issues in, it's held up and been fantastic. What easily could have been an issue with a lot of punching turns into something a bit unexpected with the spotlight on Quicksilver. Hopefully the rest of the event keeps me on my toes as much as this one. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Alex Bisignaro Jan 24, 2018

    AVENGERS #677 is a thrilling issue that provides more questions than answers. Mark Waid, Al Ewing, and Jim Zub are a great team of writers, making each issue better than the rest. Pepe Larraz and David Curiel continue to make the artwork shine. Read Full Review

    With this being still very early on within the “No Surrender” storyline, this issue starts to position the Avenger teams into the right positions to have some big battles in future issues, the use of Quicksilver to break up the flow really helps keep things interesting. I've been enjoying this series and now I'm left with more questions, that I can't wait to find out more and with a weekly series, I don't need to wait long. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - Michael 'Ace' M... Jan 26, 2018

    This issue had a lot of action with the Avengers stuck between a worldwide battle between The Lethal Legion and the Black Order. The characterization of the heroes continues to be spot on, but at this point, the villains all kind of feel like they are just there. That said, I did like the twist on the typical event story of two groups being forced to fight by powerful beings with both groups being villains this time. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Jan 26, 2018

    "Avengers" #677 is a focused comic providing additional beats with Quicksilver while retaining forward momentum from past issues. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 24, 2018

    A small but satisfying revelation and a hint of hilarity are enough (just barely) to keep the "No Surrender" train chugging along. Pepe Larraz's top-tier art cries out for a more memorable story to tell, but so far the script refuses to rise to greatness. This is a decent arc so far - but is "decent" enough for a story demanding so much of its readers' time and money? Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jan 26, 2018

    The biggest takeaway from these first three issues is that with Pepe Larraz and David Curiel, there's no shortage of explosive action. A big story like this feels like a summer blockbuster event that we can enjoy without it bleeding into everything else from Marvel. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason Dincauze Jan 24, 2018

    While not being weak enough to derail the entire event, Avengers #677 doesnt really do much for the story, and its hard not to feel that much of that is caused by the choice of featuring Quicksilver, whose massive baggage weighs down any intended emotional resonance. Hopefully next issue wont suffer from the same problems. Read Full Review

    If Marvel's constant stream of monthly events didn't win you over, don't expect their weekly ones to, either. Because as Avengers #677 demonstrates, they essentially have the same problem: pacing and framing. Read Full Review
