Format: Hardcover
The annihilation wave has made it's impact, and in this third hardcover collection, the surviving intergalactic warriors prepare to make a last stand. Silver Surfer, Nova, the Super Skrull, and Ronan are about to face down Annihilus with the universe hanging in the balance, with the impact set to reach even greater heights. After two collections of what seemed like lead-up's to the main event, the full, main Annihilation mini-series is collected here, and it's worth the anticipation, mainly thanks to a universe shattering smackdown between Nova and Annihilus. In many ways, the whole Annihilation event is more enjoyable than Marvel's other high profile mega event, Civil War. Then again, when you've got a guy like Keith Giffen (the creator of DC's Lobo, so he knows a thing or two about intergalactic comic book operas) at the helm, you pretty much know you'll be in for something good at the very least. The art throughout is solid as well, including work from Teen Titans artist Mike McKone and Andrea DiVito among others. The only real downside is that when the end comes, it feels as if the story isn't over yet and that there's more on the horizon (and there is, naturally), so you'll be left wanting more regardless. That being said, this third hardcover Annihilation collection is an essential pickup if you've enjoyed the previous collections that led up to this, and in that case, you'll want to see how it all pans out anyway.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Zauriel on September 8, 2007
Format: Hardcover
The first two books of Annihaltion carried the mini series this one though it's got it all the main series the meat and potatoes of the story. Annihilation was slept on as far as big events overshadowed by Civil War but, far and away the better event. In this final book Nova and the rest of his Warriors prepare for the final battle against the Annihilation Wave if they fail Earth is directly in the waves path. Great read and awesome finish to the event.

Annihilus is forever!

Hearing all the raves for Annihilation, Marvel's event in the spaceways, I got the last two trades for it.

Collecting Annihilation #1-6, Annihilation: Heralds of Galactus #1-2 and Annihilation: Nova Corps. Files, BOOK THREE sees the conclusion to the event, and let me tell you this: it does NOT disappoint.

There's so much that goes on in Annihilation, I'll give you a broad rundown on why it's worth your 17 bucks.

-GRAND-SCALE MOMENTS: You can tell that the Annihilation War is epic. Gods (Galactus) are desecrated. Civilizations (Xandar, House of Fiyero, Skrull Empire)are destroyed. Pariahs (Ronan the Accuser) are restored. But best of all, these radical changes are ADHERED TO. This means the change in the status quo REMAINS the change - if the Supreme Intelligence is killed, then it STAYS dead. You can count on artistic integrity from writer Keith Giffen.

-STRONG CHARACTERS, STRONG RELATIONSHIPS: Keith Giffen is an expert in garnering emotional investment. Whether it's showing Drax's fervor to kill Thanos or Nova's need for revenge in the name of Nova Corps., you'd have a hard time NOT caring about them. The villains have wonderful personalities as well: megalomaniacs (Annihilus) are absolutely, endearingly in fact, fixated on destroying everything and ruling what remains, while strategists (Thanos of Titan) inject sardonic wit into the epic, while heralds (Ravenous) see the punishment for their crimes!
Each character has their own story within the Annihilation story, adding depth to the epic.

The only complaints I have of this book is that artist Andrea DiVito is a slight step down from Annihilation: Silver Surfer artist Renato Arlem, and that Annihilation: Nova Corps.

Format: Paperback
Buy/read books 1 and 2 first.

If you grew up reading the Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer (especially the 1987 series), then you'll really enjoy this massive story and all the characters.

Annihilus is angry that our universe's expansion is causing the Negative zone to contract. He gathers up a large force from the Negative zone and invades our universe. The breach caused by his army destroys the Kyln (a universal prison). Two powerful contemporaries of Galactus are released. Also freed are Drax the Destroyer and Paibok the skrull. Annihilus's forces destroyer Xandar and the Nova Corps in the early stage of the war and wreck havoc across the universe.

Heroes and anti-heroes show up from all around the universe to fight Annihilus's army. They include the Silver Surfer, other heralds of Galactus, the last Nova, Ronin the Accuser, Drax, Quasar, Super-Skrull, Gamora, and Peter Quill. Galactus and Thanos play large rolls as well.

Vol 3 is fantastic. All the work that the reader put into reading the first two volumes pays off here.
(1) We get re-introduced to Peter Quinn, the Starlord, a cynical warrior who becomes a key figure in the Marvel Space universe.
(2) Thanos vs. Drax
(3) Ronan vs. Ravenous
(4) Galactus vs. Annihilus
(5) Nova vs. Annihilus

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Annihilation succeeds where Marvel's Civil War failed. Civil War was boring, poorly written, and hard to swallow. Annihilation in comparison is a great book that actually has some believability to it and a real sense of jeopardy for the heroes involved. Plus, it breathes some new life into some cosmic heroes/villains that have been on the back burner far too long at Marvel.

I highly recommend this book.
