    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 1, 2017

    With its meta-explanation of why Riverdale has been the same since 1940, a plot hinged on a friendship established in 30-year-old issues of New Mutants and a really diverse, fun cast of players, U.S. Avengers #11 is a real winner, with a fun plot and the promise of more action, adventure and a reunited romance to come.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 3, 2017

    I could easily see this comic being a little too winking and nudging for many people. It was almost that way for me, honestly. However, Ewing keeps things just funny and engaging enough to prevent it from falling to its own joke. Diazs artwork is almost worth the price of admission on its own. As such, I do tentatively recommend this comic. Give it a read, if its main joke didnt turn you off to it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Nov 7, 2017

    Whereas before this series has been focussed on the rest of the team during Secret Empire its finally coming to light what has befallen Cannonball in a story that is centered around him and the Cannonball Run is a welcome change of pace. Its not only a shout out to current TV show Riverdale and the heady days of Archie and Jughead comics but also a tongue in cheek reference to Fantastic Four #91 involving Skrulls when Ben Grimm was sold into slavery on Kral IV, a planet where the inhabitants are obsessed with mob culture. Also the Star Trek episode A Piece Of The Action of the same era when the crew of the Starship Enterprise met up with a culture obsessed with prohibition era gangsters. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Oct 30, 2017

    "U.S.Avengers" #11 is whirlwind of cool comics ideas doled out in a rapid clip that doesn't stick. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Oct 30, 2017

    This Legacy issue is a barely comprehensible story for newcomers, too goofy to be carrying the Avengers title on its cover, while providing little to no answers within its pages about our villain and why we should care about this situation anybody find themselves in at all. The art present in this title deserves a story worth being told that just isn't here. Read Full Review

    Al Ewing is perhaps my favorite at Marvel rn, really enjoying this book, and I'm still sad Ultimates2 is gone, hopefully, the little bit of cooky mystery continues forward and love the 1920's gangsta robots in space!

    the green death Oct 25, 2017

    Tons of fun! I've read me a lot of Al Ewing since joining Marvel Unlimited and I really dig his work, but never expected anything quite as leftfield as the "Archie" world here. I love the playfulness of the script. The art lets it down a little (it's good art, but in my perfect world Ewing would be working with the A-List). Still highly recommended if you like the cover, you'll like what's inside! Also, the last page reveal does point the way to an interesting part 2.

    Cannonball is trapped in a sinister mockery of Riverdale, and his teammates get waylaid by space-gangsters on the way to rescue him. Though there are sharp limits to the amount of fun this premise can deliver, Al Ewing is determined to wring out every last chuckle. Paco Diaz's art rolls the story along and lavishes a little extra attention on the best gags, like Jimmy Robot-Face, the fedora-wearing Celestial-tech gangster-bot. Even though this issue is a much-appreciated return to absurd-smart Hitchhiker's Guide-esque comedy (which suits my personal tastes like a glove), I can still see that this is well short of all-time greatness.

    I'm not care for this ongoing. I'm just cheak it before Surrender Beggin ^^
    Cover - 1/2
    Writing - 2/3 - A little to heavy on the Archie parodie & the rich prick. The end is a good idea but coming way to late.
    The pirate as not fun, the old mafia look is ridiculous. And their test make seem harder to understand for someone like me not that good in english (I know I'm not in the editor mind when he think to who will buy their books). 1/3
    Arts - I really love it & that save the day. 3/3
    Sentiment - 0/2
