  1. I’m looking forward to a reveal at the end of this issue as to where cosmic Marvel is going next.

  2. Waiting to see if Rom will finally show up.

  3. The Annihilators story has been decent but I don’t like the artist and the minute Skrulls showed up I stopped caring about the story.  At least the Rocket Raccoon and Groot story is awesome.  It’s sad to say but if it was only the lead story I don’t think I would buy this.  It really feels like Marvel Cosmic is winding down and DnA are moving on to other projects.  Perhaps it’s time to put the cosmic back on the shelf?

  4. I was really excited for this coming off of the Thanos Imperitive but I’m ready for this to be over.

  5. This isn’t interesting when they’re always out there fighting. Some of my favorite scenes are when they slow down and actually talk to each other.

  6. Please have Rom, please have Rom, please have Rom.

  7. this series could go on forever and I would be ok with it

  8. @Noto.  I couldn’t agree more.  That would be so F’ing cool!

  9. I’m pretty sure its impossible for us to ever see ROM again, due to him being owned by Hasbro. Only slight allusions to the character I’m afraid.  That being said, I’m really really really liking Ikon as a ROM Space Knight replacement. She’s awesome. but I’m afraid she will disapear the moment this mini ends.

  10. If the Micronauts can come back, there’s no reason Rom can’t.

  11. Ikon ain’t no Rom, Rom’s got like legendary status.

  12. Very enjoyable, but VERY rushed. You can really tell that they had to cut at least one or two issues. And the way they treated it like a silver age comic where simply announcing your intentions means they will come true was the only way they could even make it make sense.

  13. I think it’s important to remember that Annihilators wasn’t a cosmic adventure on the scale of Operation Galactic Storm or The Annihilation Wave which involved multiple galactic empires and heavy hitters like Galactus. I think # 1 and # 2 were the strongest issues although they managed to have some pretty interesting surprises through out the series. I think this issue will get a luke warm reception. I thought it wasn’t too bad but of course it didn’t have everything I wanted to see plus there’s a few things that could have been explained better. I like Ikon I wonder if anything will ever become of her and Quasar if she survives this mini-series.

  14. This was definitely a condensed issue.  The Annihilators story might have been called “How Quasar Got His Groove Back.”  Far from DnA’s best cosmic work.  The story was too busy and none of the villians grabbed me but after finishing it I was still glad to see they’re doing another.  Hopefully it’ll have an artist I’m more fond of.

    The Rocket Raccoon and Groot story has been awesome.  They’ve made a raccoon and tree so endearing.  It’s got a planet of sentient trees, the undergrowth army, the clown guards, and a whole mess of anthropomorphic critters.  It’s the kind of stuff comics excel at.  The art was beautiful throughout.  What Rocket had to do to save the day and the last page put a huge smile on my face.

  15. Alas, no Rom.

    I think Huat’s art is brilliant.

    Would think Gladiator and Ronin would be busy governing their respective peoples, and Silver Surfer dude would be being the big G’s herald (like in Thor right now), but guess they have time to be Annihilators like Wolvie has time to be an Avenger, X-Man, and X-Forcer all in the same day.
