    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 13, 2019

    Far from being a cash-in sequel, Avengers: No Road Home kicks off with a virtuoso case of premise refinement. The key problems of No Surrender - too-big cast, too-slow pace, too-blah villains - have been corrected with surgical precision. This story roars out of the gate with passionate characters, a clear (and dreadful) antagonist, and simply gorgeous storytelling in words and art. Time will have to tell how the story ends, but it absolutely could not be off to a better start. Read Full Review

    AVENGERS: NO ROAD HOME #1 is comic book writing at its finest. The writing team delivers a smooth, exciting issue from start to finish. Paco Medina's art is superb. I can't wait to see how this series progresses. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Feb 12, 2019

    No Road Home certainly has the talent, the cast, and the potential to succeed, topped off with a high fantasy hook that is tailor made for serialization. Eyes front, True Believer, because Avengers: No Road Home #1 is Marvel Comics in their purest form. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 12, 2019

    A good first issue, especially for longtime readers of the Avengers. The writing team has done an excellent job capturing the unique voice of each character while the art captures the wholesome positivity of them as well. It's exciting to see Marvel tackle an often unused corner of the universe and I can't wait to see how they flesh it out further. Read Full Review

    The action hits heavy and the drama carries plenty of weight. AVENGERS: NO ROAD HOME could reestablish Hercules as a premier Marvel character. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Feb 15, 2019

    While this first issue, much like its predecessor's, exists to set up the various threads going forward, what No Road Home has over No Surrender's debut is that the spectacle doesn't overshadow these characters. Most exciting is the dynamic between Hulk and Hawkeye, though Vision's arc appears to have the most emotional potential, with the issue's reader-friendly approach and contextual backmatter making it clear where all these characters are at even if you haven't caught up with the team's previous tale.

    When all is said and done, No Road Home introduces an exciting new story that could prove to be a game-changing affair. Then again, it could also turn out to be just another Avengers off-shoot. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 23, 2019

    Not perfect, but a fun start. The heroes are introduced and a problem established that goes beyond Earth. The art is suitable, but there's not many opportunities for it to wow the reader, and when it does it misses the mark. The characters are familiar and enjoyable, so I'll be back for more.

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Feb 13, 2019

    Avengers: No Road Home #1 is a great start for this limited series. The art is fantastic, and the character selection is good. The main story isn't explored too much but sets up enough for what's to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Feb 15, 2019

    A good, but a bit uninspiring first issue that introduces the large cast of characters and gets them up against the big bad by the end of the issue. This book looks fantastic and Ewing, Waid, and Zub do enough to keep me readingfor now. Read Full Review

    Solid first issue. I like the chemistry between the cast. I hope the villain becomes more interesting. This was mostly set up, so I'm expecting more in the next few issues.

    This New Avengers are unconventional and was unexpected for me. It was much fun, especially where Hulk intimidates the others, Rocket's antics, Hawkeye's swag, and many more. The story is a deep turn shining light on some of our Greek gods in a fictional way. It's amazing to say the least.

    Voyager returns to assemble a new Avengers team when a sinister force snuffs out every sun in the universe. Hercules is the central hero, but there's admirable attention paid to all his new teammates. The Big Problem comes together in a compelling way, the antagonist is full of promise, and the art is gorgeous stuff. This is very much a sequel to No Surrender - but at the start, it steers well clear of mistakes that held that story back.

    I didn't want it. No surrender was catastorphic. I didn't understand Why marvel want a sequel.
    But I see a preview with Tony Ho in the roaster. I was happy that she wasn't completly forgotten, so for her I take this. And understand me well. I didn't want a team with Rocket in the Avengers, it's as stupid as Conan in a Avengers team (Oh wait ...).
    That said I take it with a open mind, but the start was a little weird. What started Like that ? I told to myself. But at the end, that make sense.
    How the team is assembled is not bad. Not good or original, but at least with good work on the characters past (Even if I find Clint/Wanda friendship a little weird considering he dies because of her). Rocket is well introdust, Clint will more

    So far so interesting! I like the characters and they seem to be written pretty good, and I think the plot is neato.

    Didn't immediately hook me up as much as No Surrender did, but was quite a great introduction.

    I’m was glad that the first half of this issue let of catch up with our characters, who are criminally underused in Marvel’s Fresh Start. I didn’t see a need for a sequel to No Surrender but I found this first issue enjoyable and not forced. The best part about No Road Home, and No Surrender for that matter, is that they remind me so much of Avengers comics of old

    Avengers: No Road Home #1
    a) Writing/Script= 6.8/10 (Various)
    b) Art= 8.0/10 (Paco Medina)
    c) Colours= 6.5/10 (Juan Vlasco)

    Average= 7.1/10

    I really like that they are focusing on the GREEK side of the Marvel universe. We dont really get to visit that side of the Marvel universe that much, so great to see them explore this place again and its characters again. The dialogues and the overall writing were ok. Since this book focuses on most of the people's lesser favourite Superheroes, this book might get a little boring and slow but thank god it picked up at the end and sets up a good next issue. Plus, Paco Medina's great pencils is wasted by Juan Vlasco's less appealing colours.
