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.
Like many comics readers, I hope to one day publish my own comics. So I devour articles about process, and when I find a writer who goes deep talking about scripting, writer-artist relationships, or economics, I take note.
I’ve assembled the list below for those just starting to read about making comics. These five writers are, in my opinion, the best at talking process. They are not my five favorite writers period, though they’re all very good (and some would make that list). But they’re the ones who have the most to share about the act of writing, or at least the most patience to deal with those of us on the Internet who want to learn.
