And so the first incarnation of Marvel Cosmic comes to an end with easily the worst issue of the entire run. From this issue alone, it’s clear than Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning have grown tired of the old iteration and are looking forward to shaking things up with the new series, Annihilators; there’s just none of the love or dedication to be found here, which is surprising given that this should be an important moment for the team. There are a few surprises in the storytelling, sure; a couple of nice twists, mixed with some interesting new teammates thrown into the mix, but the truth of the matter is: This isn’t Guardians or Nova. It’s a sad thing to comprehend, but maybe this is the necessary destruction of the great comic book line. The art on this issue was no help, either; Miguel Sepulveda’s artwork is horrendous to look upon, ugly character models coupled with fractured pencil work and muddy colours. As an end to the first incarnation, this was a disaster; as an introduction to the next, it is a bore. And that’s the worst thing about this issue.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 1 - Poor

  1. As a “getting the team together” issue, I thought this was quite good.  I think DnA are going in another direction because, sadly, “Nova” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” simply did not sell enough to merit their continued publication.

  2. @Invasionforce  It felt like they changed the way they’re writing it, and that was less interesting to me; that, and I don’t really care about any of the characters on the team.
