With Marvel Generations over(?) and Marvel Legacy rolling out, it is time for a regime change in the Avengers. Marvel has announced the end of the Avengers is coming in Avengers: No Surrender, a new weekly series by Mark Waid, Al Ewing, Jim Zub, Pepe Larraz, Kim Jacinto, and Paco Medina.

“The Earth has been stolen! That’s the kickoff to the wildest AVENGERS epic ever put to paper, a widescreen adventure with a massive cast and an unlimited budget,” teased SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Avengers past and present will be called upon to cope with a threat spanning out of the pages of MARVEL LEGACY #1. And like that oversized special, there’s a huge character return or two along the way that fans have been asking for—and one that they didn’t even know they wanted!”

No Surrender promises to feature appearance from every current Avenger – those you know and a few who haven’t been around for a while, as the Lethal Legion and the Black Order battle their way across the Earth.

It all begins in January’s Avengers #675 and will continue for at least three months, according to the press release from Marvel.

While cover prices haven’t been announced (yet), the $3.99 cover price is going to make this a series that quickly adds up (12-issues minimum). Over the course of three months, readers will drop $48 on the series, which may mean many titles will see a drop as fans decide whether or not to buy the weekly Avengers series, or pick up that copy of Old Man Logan.

I do like the idea of weekly series. Spider-Man went three times a month for a while and was a great run, and DC Comics had 52, and the more recent bi-weekly Rebirth series which seem to have worked out okay, so maybe fans are ready for a true weekly series found in the pages of Avengers.

    Marvel has so many events, they can’t keep anything straight.

    I can see at this point the real big event of 2018 “Marvel : Shutdown By Disney keeping the IP for movies and games.”
