    You Don't Read Comics

    There are eight characters. And then theres one major villain. Its a big ensemble for a story with no introduction that drops right in the middle of the climax. Its all juggled with great finesse by the entire team. The fact that the story involves quantum teleportation is a pretty cool thematic synchronicity. The next issue finds a similar group of Avengers who have been captured by mega-villain Doctor Doom. Somehow Doom has gotten ahold of Captain Americas shield on the cover. That cant be good.

    The Story: Landy crafts an entertaining and engaging mystery in this first issue. The story starts with action and doesn’t let up while also planting the seeds of a bigger story within the narration. I found the mystery compelling, the characters engaging and the circumstances entertaining enough to make me want to see where this story goes next.

    The Art: Greg Land delivers some beautifully detailed and exciting art throughout the issue. The action is non-stop and visually compelling.

    But Why Tho?

    All-Out Avengers #1 is an energetic comic that is unashamed of putting the action first. While there is a plot that will link the issues, it appears that it is merely a setup for the characters to go into battle. It is a fun issue that doesnt let up from its intensity from the opening page to the last. The art isnt perfect but what it does do is capture the kinetic motion that is required. How this concept plays out over multiple issues will be fascinating to discover.

    I’m excited about this book as it provides readers a cinema homage as well as a relaxed Avengers team. Sure…Arrok makes a pretty awesome villain and how she can consolidate her army…that is reminiscent of an Ant-Man maneuver. Again, this is a fun read and one in which any Avenger fan who wishes to lighten the load of a heavy dialogue comic can get into!

    ‘All-Out Avengers’ totally delivers on its promise of wall-to-wall action. This is an extremely entertaining comic that captures Earth’s Mightiest Heroes at their best. However, the darkness creeping on the edges is what will keep readers hooked.

    While the issue delivers on the promise of being action from the jump, it lacks the necessary components to be a cohesive story to pull everything together. The dialogue is light, but seems uneven, as Landy seems unsure of the cast, and their characterizations. We have a couple of stellar nuggets, but theyre few and far between. Lands art here is serviceable, but nothing to write home about. An uneven start to the Earths mightiest.

    The concept is fun. The story is even more so. But the line-art is distracting to the point that it’s impossible to recommend this without reservations.

    It’s fitting that All-Out Avengers opens in media res with a familiar assortment of the current team battling space invaders possessing profane artifacts and seeking to dominate life across the universe. That familiar arrangement provides space to spotlight each member in quick succession, deliver some action sequences, and establish this story for future issues. It delivers admirable work on the first element with plenty of well-situated quips and splashes, a middling variety of the second as Land’s artwork appears too flat and staged to offer the impact this issue presumes, and collapses on the final point. A self-aware narrator follows the tale and even contradicts the action once or twice in order to raise questions about the nature of this miniseries and what may follow. This touch is noticeable, but remains far too subtle to make itself a hook. Yet outside of that narration, the action of Avengers pummeling generic villains from space reads as derivative at best. Without the necessary style or skill to make the artwork its own draw, there’s simply not enough here to guarantee any reader is compelled to wait for All-Out Avengers #2.

    At the end of the day, I don’t think the quality in Marvel’s “All-Out Avengers” #1 was able to justify its existence. The book ends almost as quick as it starts. While the opening cliffhanger is a solid way to immerse readers into the story, there’s no follow-up worthy of exploring the cliffhanger further. This series also has a questionable art team that make a lot of strange storytelling choices in these pages. The odd hues of D’Armata’s colors bring out some of the worst parts of Greg Land’s interior art. Greg Land also appears to be using forced poses for his characters. If Marvel continues to utilize Land, I would love to see Land switch over to a more natural illustration style. If Land focused more on the storytelling in comics, there would be immense potential for this series in terms of the art. I hope Landy is able to do more with the fascinating opening concept in future issues of “All-Out Avengers.”

    “All-Out Avengers” #1 is a good idea with poor execution.

    Comic Book Revolution

    All-Out Avengers #1 has an interesting concept behind it as we start in the middle of a story already well into development. Derek Landy and Greg Land just never do anything with the potential of this direction with the threat the Avengers face off against being the most generic villains that could’ve been chosen. This is definitely hard pass as I won’t ever think about as a comic book I should read beyond the first issue.
