•  Quicksilver's super-speed and abrasive personality have always isolated him, but he's never been truly alone...until now.
•  Trapped beyond the perception of friends, family and allies, Quicksilver wages a one-man guerilla war against a monster that he's not even sure is real, to save a world that he may never be a part of again.
•  Saladin Ahmed (BLACK BOLT) and Eric Nguyen (OLD MAN LOGAN) team up to bring you a psychedelic survival thriller unlike anything you've seen before!

    It doesn't feel like Quicksilver's going anywhere any time soon, and that lack of forward momentum in a world that's so unsettlingly lonely raises the question of whether a lone Pietro in the face of a seemingly silent threat is enough to carry the emotional weight of a full series.

    QUICKSILVER: NO SURRENDER #1 is filled with great Pietro Maximoff moments. Saladin Ahmed truly gets the character. It makes the issue a satisfying read for Quicksilver fans. I wasn't a big fan of the art, but you may be! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 17, 2018

    Quicksilver: No Surrender #1 starts off on the right foot with a ponderous and self-reflective issue for Pietro Maximoff. Ahmed, Nguyen, and Renzi provide a compelling conflict for our hero with brilliant artwork and stunning color. This one gets a strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    A thoughtful, insightful debut, "Quicksilver: No Surrender" shows readers' Pietro's complex psyche and motivations, with some killer psychedelic art to boot. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler May 16, 2018

    It's pretty damn good! Ahmed's tendencies for exposition grow as the issue goes on, but the narrative is good enough, combined with the amazing art, to make this issue a winner. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 16, 2018

    Saladin Ahmed and Eric Nguyen deliver a speedy but intimate portrait of Quicksilver before throwing some fascinating roadblocks in his path. While this miniseries doesn't start off in a position of all-time greatness, that definitely could be where it's headed. The introduction is well above average and packed with enough promise (both visually and narratively) to get readers clamouring for more. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones May 16, 2018

    Quicksilver: No Surrender #1 is an entertaining first issue about a complicated protagonist. This series spins out of the events of Avengers: No Surrender, but is still perfectly accessible for new readers (like me), and only briefly mentions previous events before getting into its own story. It's a solid beginning for the series. Read Full Review

    It may not have come out of the gate at full-speed, but Quicksilver: No Surrender seems likely to pick up momentum as it goes. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Don Alsafi May 18, 2018

    It's too bad, because Quicksilver is a fascinating character who really deserves his due, and with a small but devoted fanbase who would love to see him featured in more stories. But this first issue really does feel like he's running to stand still. Read Full Review

    Later issues may help to better define Pietero's character, but this issue leaves new readers with little reason to stick around and find out. Read Full Review
