I do not usually repeat series here, especially not consecutive issues, but Avengers: No Road Home is an exception. This is one of the best Avengers stories in quite a while and that is saying something.
I have been fully engaged so far after only two issues. I love the grouping of Avengers involved in this series. I have always been a fan of Hercules and I am happy to see him standing front and center. Clint Barton and the Hulk and their history brings an uncertainty, especially with the new Immortal Hulk who brings a darker side to the Green Goliath. Rocket Raccoon in a whole new group away from the Guardians of the Galaxy. Vision, Scarlet Witch, Spectrum and Voyager finishing off the roster for the series.
And this Nyx is bad ass. Although it feels a little Thor:Ragnarok in story (Nyx hidden away cause she is too powerful- just like Hela), I find it very well written with some definite wit to it. The combination of Al Ewing, Jim Zub and Mark Waid make a wonderful trio of writers here. I would be curious to know how their process went here and who did what.
This episode had lots of great action and a focus in the mindset of Clint Barton aka Hawkeye. And it leads to a great final page.
This has been a great start to this weekly series and I am excited about the next installment.
