Please tell me someone else out there has been keeping up with Nova and the new Guardians of the Galaxy. D: Lastest issues: Spoiler Amidst the War of the Kings, Nova has to save his brother and the lovable cosmic kicktoy that is Lord Ravenous from the Imperial Guard's sadistic Strontian commander. Meanwhile, several of the Guardians of the Galaxy are teleported to the doomed future by Dr Doom's time machine, where "The Fault" is ripping apart the entire cosmos, fueled by how the extremely fragile Marvel Universe is being literally shredded by the various epic interstellar conflicts that the comic company still feebly tries to overshadow with 616-Earth drama. There they meet the original Guardians in an awesome "FUCK YEAH" moment for me, fight a horde of Badoon, and find a sun fueled by Celestials after Starhawk commits a glorious last stand sacrifice. The Badoon, cockroaches of the universe, managed to get the final cosmic cube and wipe out the rest of the species in order to construct a solar system-sized life-raft to ward off The Fault. Cosmo the psychic russian dog has a captive Celestial send word of how to stop The Fault in the present (it was caused by Black Bolt using a T-Bomb against the Shiar Empire), as Celestials have quantum consciousnesses that ignore time. The Celestial then falls into the sun with our heroes inside, as The Fault breaks in and obliterates the rest of the universe. And all this stuff? It's delivered in an entertaining and fun way that leaves me wanting more. Not to mention things like one of the newer Guardians being Jack Flagg, a former inmate in the Negative Zone gulag created during Civil War, who often complains about how much he hates "this cosmic shit". Also King Blastarr of the Negative Zone giving Nova 15 minutes to save his brother, because they're Annihilation War buddies and Blastarr is trying to learn to be awesome badass warrior royalty. If you are completely lost then go buy the original Annihilation trades and get caught up, damn it. Especially if you've recently gotten back into mainstreamy comics due to Green Lantern, or have fond memories of the Infinity Gauntlet from your younger days.
