The first in a series of all-new original graphic novels! An abomination, long thought buried, has resurfaced in a war-torn land. But now it wears an American flag. Faced with another nightmare reborn, Captain America will not stand for yet more death at the hands of a ghost from his past. Haunted by his greatest shame, Thor must renew the hunt for a familiar beast. At their side, an assemblage of allies united to end the threats no one of them could face alone. They are soldiers. Warriors. Comrades-in-arms. Mighty heroes led by a living legend, stronger together than apart. They are the Avengers.

    CHUD - Adam X. Smith Oct 11, 2013

    This book, in many ways, feels like Ellis taking that thread of his work to its logical conclusion, and if after all that you still shrug and walk away, you have no taste and should go back to drilling holes in your skull with a mechanical pencil: I'm Adam X. Smith, and fuck all of you. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Oct 7, 2013

    If graded on its first one hundred pages or so, "Avengers: Endless Wartime" would have gotten near perfect marks. Its ending doesn't deliver, but that's not to say the first eight innings weren't great. If there's ever a follow-up story, one can only hope for a "what really happened"-type re-visitation.

    Newsarama - Scott Cederlund Oct 2, 2013

    Avengers: Endless Wartime is an Warren Ellis book but it follows the blueprints that Ellis laid out years ago without ever being able to take that next evolutionary step to set it apart from everyone that Ellis has ever influenced. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Dave Oct 6, 2013

    The first of Marvel's original graphic novels offers seemingly boundless potential, but frequently falls short. This is a fun, brisk read for Marvel fans who like the Avengers bantering in a room. It won't deliver much else. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Oct 4, 2013

    With so many better, and classic, stories featuring these characters to choose from, there are dozens of other choices I'd read first. If this is Marvel's attempt to market their comics to those interested in the Movies they've launched, it's a pretty poor start. This story wasn't endless, the more I read though, the more I wanted it to. Read Full Review
