Volume 1 of the Marvel "Annihilation" event was a very well done, if flawed, collection that seemed to suffer a tad in direction and art but still managed to present something on a truly epic, universal level. Volume 2 pics right up with its collection. While things are (VERY) slowly coming together, these three mini-arcs are quite superior to the previous volume, despite being less directly involved in the main plot. First off, I'll be frank and say I was never a fan of the Silver Surfer; that has changed. He really impressed me in this mini-series and came across as more than Hollywood Oscar's twin brother. Ronan the Accuser had an interesting presence as well. But both of those pale in comparison to the story of the Super Skrull. Until this book, I had no idea who he was, but he easily steals this entire collection. Few characters in comics come across as so well-developed as Super Skrull does. He is a villain and a hero both at once and every scene he's in makes one pay attention. His inclusion alone justifies the entire "Annihilation" event and really impressed me. The art, like before, is a mixed bag. None of it really blew me away, and I get the feeling that all the "big" artists were working on "Civil War", but what's here is good and gets the job done, albeit in a less detailed, more stylized, way. In the end, while this collection's not quite as plot heavy, it is definitely more character-driven, and that makes is superior to the first volume, if just barely. An easy recommendation for an event that keeps getting bigger and better.

When these originally came out as single issues I'd tried to skip these and only read the actual "Annihilation" books. Unfortuantely these are all essential to the story though & the actual book wound up confusing for me. I then went back when the series was reprinted in trade format and read the whole story. I'm glad I did because the "Annihilation" series were some of the best comic books I've read in a long time. Unfortuantely though the mini's collected in Book 2 while essential to the story, are over all pretty drab & boring. The art is also pretty minor league stuff & kinda tough (at least for me) to get into. Book 2 collects issues 1-4 of "Annihilation Super Skrull", Annihilation - Silver Surfer", "Annihilation - Ronin". Now these are by no means the worst stories you'll ever read, but just not on the same level as the Drax, & Nova books collected in Book 1. All in all though in the end Book 2 adds to the plot & you'll be glad you read them by the time you move on to Book 3. Definately read Book 2 if you're even slightly intersted in the Annihilation series, you'll be glad you did.

Vol. 2 is a great appetizer to the actual Annihilation War. This book is way above mediocraty in that it allows the reader to really care about these war bound characters that will soon embark in a suicidal mission. It lets the reader care about these people who may die in battle. While the writing is great and the art work spot on, it's an acquired taste for people who love the cosmic Marvel Universe or even just good story telling.

I haven't bought a comic book in about 14 years I bought this Annihilation books 1 and 2. I was impressed and suffureed from memory rush. Man, did I miss these things.
Surfer was always a character I like. Super Skrull was one of my favorite. Thanos, Terrax; and when did Glorian get so powerful? I can't wait till book #3 comes.

In Annihilation Book One, the Negative Zones "Annihilus" set loose an armada intent on taking over the universe. In Annihilation Book Two we discover the reason why.
It seems our universe is expanding. As it does, the Negative Zone becomes smaller and smaller. Annihilus is now determined to take back what's his and then some. One of the byproducts of his attack is the destruction of an interstellar prison older than time itself. Now freed are two super powerful inmates that were imprisoned by Galactus. The power of these beings rival that of Galactus himself and their very existence threatens to tilt the cosmic balance and possibly destroy the universe. Aware of the danger from the freed cosmic entities and of the threat of Annihilus is Silver Surfer. In order to help put things right, the Surfer once again becomes the Herald of Galactus and teams with all of the former Heralds to save the universe.

Joining the fray is the Super Skrull whose multiple defeats at the hands of The Avengers and the Fantastic Four have made him the disgrace of the Skrull Empire. The invasion by Annihilus threatens the home planet of the Super Skrulls family. With the help of a young star struck Skrull mechanic, Super Skrull goes to the Negative Zone in an attempt to find weaponry and form an army with the power to stop Annihilus.
Also entering the circle is Kree powerhouse Ronan the Accuser who finds himself in a situation similar to that of the Super Skrull. Ronan is accused of treason against the Kree Empire thanks to false testimony given against him. Ronan is scouring the galaxy to find the person who set him up. During his search he runs up against bronze age femme fatale Gamora, the deadliest woman in the universe and quickly discovers that the label is no idle boast.
