From the fallout of ANNIHILATION and the end of the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, an all-too-familiar cosmic threat has returned, this time with Earth as his beachhead. His followers span a thousand worlds, awaiting only the word to begin new wars in his name… unless the ANNIHILATORS can silence him first! So why do THE AVENGERS stand in their way, and what are the true stakes if either side fails?

Plus, continuing our backup adventure, it’s MOJO versus ROCKET RACCOON & GROOT onstage for a high-stakes campy cosmic free-for-all!

  1. I am so excited for this.

  2. Dammit. The main story in this is as ugly as the devil’s face, but I desperately desire the Rocket/Groot perfection in the back. Are 6 pages of brilliance worth 20 of hideousness?

  3. The lead story doesn’t look THAT bad. Its not exceptional. But its not ugly.

    • It could just be me, but I find it to be horrible in every way. Inconsistent, devoid of energy, muddy colors, disproportionate, hideous faces, even the layouts are confusing and needlessly cluttered. It’s bad enough that I’m not gonna buy it anymore, despite loving DnA and craving the Rocket/Groot story in the back. I just can’t justify supporting that… that.

      It is eye poison.

  4. I don’t hate the art in the main strip as much as Casey but the faces sure are rough. Setting aside questionable art, the story faltered this issue. I figured it would be the typically heroes-mistakenly-fight-each-other issue and it was. It didn’t work very well. Maybe better art would have carried it but if the characters had time to shout at each other surely they had time to explain the situation and, given past relationships, I imagine the Avengers would at least hear the Annihilators out. I like the Church of Universal Truth stuff so hopefully this will be better the next two issues.

    I said last time Cosmo made the book better and he does. Only he’s not in this issue. The problem with this team is they are all so freakin’ serious to the point where I don’t care about them. Without Cosmo you’re left with five really powerful straight men (and woman) punching stuff. At least DnA made good use of Spider-Man and made me chuckle a couple times.

    There’s not much to say about the backup other than it is awesome and looks great. More, please.

    • I don’t know. I kinda like how they’re playing Beta Ray. “Uh… about that ‘Don’t let Ronan and Gladiator kill anyone’ thing…” Priceless.
