I’m STILL catching up on comics I missed from 2018, which is how I happened to find myself reading BOOM! Studios’s Abbott a few weekends ago. And while writer Saladin Ahmed and illustrator Sami Kivelä delivered a heck of a supernatural crime thriller, it was colorist Jason Wordie’s work that blew me away.
Recently, I got to spend a particularly lazy Saturday catching up on comics I’ve either missed or been meaning to re-read. Rather than talk about one of those books in particular, I figured it might be nice to cover them all quickly in one post – and also share a look at my weekend!
Avengers: No Surrender is never going to be a Marvel movie. It’s embedded with far too much Marvel Comics minutiae to ever hit the big screen. It’s too sprawling; its cast of forty-some heroes and villains is too big.
But all that is what makes No Surrender the perfect Avengers COMIC story. And I’d argue that if you loved Infinity War, and you want to spend some of your pre-Endgame time seeing what Avengers comics are all about, that No Surrender is the book for you.
