  1. I never thought I’d say this but after loving DnA’s cosmic since Annihilation I’m actually skipping this. The fall in quality from Thanos Imperative to Annihilators was so drastic as to make me think the former was their last real story and when Marvel asked them to come up with another one they just kind of phoned it in. Sad.

  2. I’m looking forward to this one. Hopefully it’ll be better than the last series though. I lost interest in the Dire Wraiths very quickly.

  3. Yea, I used to be excited for every DnA Marvel cosmic book but I can’t say that about this. I like the members of the Annihilators team in theory but they don’t make an interesting cast like Nova and the Guardians did. The Dire Wraiths story just sort of existed. Nothing memorable about it. The biggest problem is I’m not a fan of Tan Eng Huat’s art.

    This has more Rocket Raccoon and Groot drawn by Timothy Green II so that’s awesome. I’ll try the first issue and may end up getting the next three for the back up strip if nothing else.

  4. I so very much want to like this, but Tan Eng Haut’s art really just hurts my eyes. You get a good artist on this and you’ve got some big time fun on your hands.

  5. This will probably be the last of the DnA Cosmic Marvel I buy in issues for a while because it’s time for me to narrow the scope of the collection again. Also, I really need to start cutting down on new mini-series. Reading is fine (the public library buys everything that’s collected), but the buying needs to get cut back by quite a bit.

  6. I hope this is fantastic and that the art steps up a bit since the last mini. They should have switched the artists around so that Green drew the main and Huat drew the backup. Either way, I’m buying DnA’s cosmic stuff till they stop making it. It would be really nice if they could get at least one cosmic ongoing but I’m not holding my breath either.

  7. these guys ruined starlin’s work after reading the thanos imperative I was done. Maybe after someone cleans up the mess I might jump back on.

  8. This book gets a 4, but ONLY because the Rocket Raccoon/Groot story was glorious. The main feature was hideous. That said, I’ll be buying every issue. The backup is THAT good.

  9. Not a bad story, though the art could definately have been better. I’m just hoping that issue two isn’t going to be one long mis-understanding fight scene. Like what, Iron Man doesn’t recognize that Quasar and Beta Ray Bill are among the good guys? Sigh.

    As for the back up: “I am Groot.” I know, you were just about to say that yourself . . . 🙂

  10. I thought this was pretty good. The art didn’t bother me as much this time around, still not the best but it was better i thought and how good was the back up right?

  11. I enjoyed this way more than I was expecting. First of all, when Cosmo is around my enjoyment of the team increases by at least 100%. I hope he turns up in every issue. The story is more interesting this time out and that makes it easier to take in art that I’m a bit cold on. Huat can draw some dynamic action but he also really likes to draw Doonesbury noses. I assume next issue will be the obligatory heroes-fight-over-a-misunderstanding issue, which I don’t mind if it’s well done.

    As expected, the back up story is brilliant.

  12. i’m done with this book. i’m not paying 4 bucks for 20 pgs worth of reading. i can’t stand the rocket raccoon and groot back up story. how fitting an equally lame villain (mojo) should now show up.

  13. Seems like DnA is using this mini to tie up some loose ends (The Universal Church of Truth). I’m rather sad that the Comic Marvel DnA train is finally running out of steam. Their little corner of the Marvel Universe was easily the most exciting and interesting. Where once Cosmic Marvel meant its own self-contained event once a year, and at least two on-going titles. Now were stuck with a series of mini-series. The latest of which bringing cosmic Marvel to blows with the (boring) heroes of Earth.

    At the very least Annihilators is a good bang for the buck, with two serials for 4 bucks. That’s better then most mini-series out there.

    And I’ll agree with whoever said any comic is made better with more Cosmo. Easily one of the greatest characters DnA created during their tenure on Cosmic Marvel. I hope A) he isn’t lost to obscurity and B) completely ruined by someone else.

    With Loeb apparently taking a crack at Nova come the new year, I fear this title will be the hurrah of Cosmic Marvel as we’ve known it since 2005. RIP
