    THERE ARE SPOILERS IN HERE, STOP HOVERING YOUR MOUSE OVER THE TOPIC.




    Okay, this is the best Marvel 'event' I have read in -years-. Just as I'd hoped, the final issue both kicked ass and gave a decent closure to events.

    I expected to -hate- Thanos' being killed off, but those panels showing that he finally had Death by his side? I was -happy-. Thanos finally got what he wanted.

    Herald deaths...I honestly didn't see where Stardust got offed. That kinda bugged me. Terrax is 'missing', so he might return. Loving that Firelord has a bigass grudge now.

    Annihilus got PWNED PROPER.

    Galactus raged so sexy. That was awesome.

    The Epilogue was great, too. :D  Such a great revitalization to cosmic Marvel. I hope the spin-off titles take this ball and wield it well.

    Will post more thoughts as they come!

    Definately a proper end to a great miniseries. We need Keith to stick around and write all the cosmic stuff.

    I really want more done with Nova (being a New Warriors fan from the beginning, I love Rich) and Galactus. I expect Galactus will have a large role in the coming months due to the FF2 movie. Also hope to find out more about Cammi. I'm worried a little with her having Thanos' little fairy by her side.

    I'll expand on this for those who are curious.

    FURTHER SPOILERS...













    Basically, Annihilus used Galactus as the energy conduit for a giant planet-killing cannon. Physically strapped him into the machine.

    Surfer freed him.

    Galactus says one thing.

    "Go forth, Surfer...HERALD MY RAGE!"

    And he SUPERNOVAS THE ANNIHILATION WAVE. Along with many of the surrounding planets.

    Also, for those wondering exactly how Annihilus was beaten: Nova reached down his throat while he monologued in third-person, and pulled out his insides.


















    SPOILERS OVER!

    WHOZERS!!! That sounds so bad ass!!! Its a really pity that I can only check this comic out on Saturday as my comic shop is way out of my location and by the time I finish work, the shop will be closed! Blah!

    I'm really hyped out by this issue and finally we can see Galactus cutting loose...we rarely see the big guy cutting loose! And yeah, I actually enjoy this series more than...CW!

    This is one series I've been waiting for in TPB.

    I was interested in it to begin with but passed up on it when the comics first started come out, not I'll grab the TPB.

    Same here. I kind of tuned out of the whole Cosmic Marvel thing after Infinity Gauntlet, but after reading stuff about Annihilation here I do want to read it now.

    Might have to check out the trade on this. I initially passed because I never really cared for Marvel's cosmic characters (except Quasar, he's cool) and a general lack of confidence in Marvel to pull off any kind of event after the disaster that was House of M.

    Devilzfan, thanks for the cool picture! I guess Galactus and the Silver Surfer are getting their push die to the release of the FF2 movie!

    Annihilation is the best comic "event" of the past 2 years. Better than Civil War. Better than Infinite Crisis. Well-written and (most importantly) focused.

    Too bad it didn't cross over into Civil War and overrun it completely.

    Finally managed to read the final issue today and I agree...this series feels so much better than CW and dare I say Infinite Crisis. It really gives the reader a sense of a galactic conflict on an epic scale with very high stakes. For example, Ronan setting the Kree empire back in order, Thanos dying etc.

    The final battle was pretty cool...but I really wished it was Galactus or Surfer who kicked Annihilus' butt but I guess if that happened, it would be very much one sided and Nova being the most "human" cosmic hero was indeed suited to have the final show-down.

    The reason Nova got to go at the end was because he's the one getting the ongoing...
