    No Road Home #5 shows off an insightful understanding of exactly what the story needs: Triumphant action for the Avengers, shocking twists for the plot, and surprises galore for the readers. This is a delightful payoff for sticking with the series so far and a powerful argument in favour of staying tuned for future developments. Read Full Review

    Important artifacts are introduced, there's plenty of action, and several surprises, including someone entering the Marvel Universe. There are several terrific scenes for many heroes, with many deserving applause. The art looks good, with the Nightmare scenes awesome. The colors are are great, with Wanda's scenes the best. Letters add to the intensity of the visuals, with several strong yells and sounds. This is a winning book. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 16, 2019

    The introduction of one more hero at issues end is meant to have a bit more impact than it probably does. This may be a mega-popular legendary hero who first appeared at the dawn of the twentieth century, but Marvel has a decades long history with the character and his appearance here just isnt nearly as impressive as it needs to be. . . And given that the introduction at issues end is kind of a jarring smash-cut of a thing, its difficult to say quite precisely where the series is going from here, but a major conflict has ended, and further adventure awaits next issue.

    Some shocking moments, and even with their wins, things look bad for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The art isn't entirely to my liking, but there's a lot of good here. Read Full Review

    What started as an exciting new team of Marvel heroes turns into a split-up story following the framework of many average events in recent memory. Read Full Review

    Adding another hero to help fight Nyx. This series has an intriguing villain and her children to keep the powerful team of Avengers on edge. I love how each book is from a different point of view. This entire series has been very interesting to read and I look forward to next week!

    No doubt has this series been intriguing from the get-go. That could be a mixture of it being the follow-up to No Surrender (which was awesome) and the fact that I'm a huge fan of Hercules (who is sorta front-and-center in this), or maybe it's just really good. Ewing, Zub and Waid have done a great job giving each character enough time to have a bit of purpose, so even though this is about the downfall of the Olympians, it's also about each and every Avenger featured here. Up until this issue the whole thing has been simply satisfying, but it has been riding a steady pace, and with this issue it really starts to go on full blast. If you haven't checked out No Road Home yet, now is the time to catch up and do just that, because now it appear more

    Fantastic. This is a new Golden Age for the Avengers, with Aaron on The Avengers and Zub, Waid and Ewing in No Road Home.
    The story is so epic and well told, with new mysteries and revelations coming at every minute. Nyx is a great adversary because actually you can see her point in looking for revenge on the Olympians on having condemned her to eternity in prison.
    The book is also great in giving the spotlight to classic Avengers likre Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Vision and yes, Hercules, and yes Spectrum, one of the most underrated characters in comic. The use of Wanda and Monica in this specific issue us the best in years. Wanda is a classic and powerful Avenger, who was a team mainstay before Byrne and Bendis turned her into a men more

    It's fun. I enjoyed it very much so. Step up from last week. That's all I ask for in these things: fun reading with some nice art and this book has both. I laughed out loud at Hawkeye!

    No Road Home is really starting to hit its stride as their is a great amount of action, a lot of panel time for my favorite character in the series, Wanda, and a huge plot twist at the end. And I mean Marvel-universe-changed-for-good type twist

    This was really good. Immortal Hulk, once again, being the standout.

    The Avengers manage to throw some middle-act roadblocks down in front of Nyx, but circumstances still look mighty desperate. The script is less mythic than the last issue, but it makes up for it with some excellent twists. The art is still splendid on the characters, but it misses some potential in the action. The Spectrum-Witch combo magic deal, specifically, risks seeming overblown because the situation making it necessary -- Nyx holding the Avengers in a darkness bubble -- is too easy to miss.

    After a couple average issues, this book is back again at being plain fun.
