Lots of different characters, some not much seen, plot kept under control, art good.
David H. Hayman
This is the climax of the Annihilation `event' - which was an experiment involving ALL of Marvel's `cosmic' characters, to see if they could carry an ongoing series.
No More Mr. Mice Guy
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.

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.

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
This volume reprints Marvel Comics' Annihilation issues #1-6, Annihilation: Heralds of Galactus #1-2, and Annihilation: The Nova Corps Files.

This is the climax of the Annihilation `event' - which was an experiment involving ALL of Marvel's `cosmic' characters, to see if they could carry an ongoing series. This event pulled in everyone and his long-lost brother (or it will do in subsequent X-Men sequel...) from Galactus and his heralds to Thanos and the latest Captain Marvel and Quasar at one end of the spectrum, to Rocket Raccoon and Cosmo the Cosmodog at the other, as Annihilus invaded the positive universe, destroying the remains of the Skrull Empire in the process, and severely damaging the Kree Empire before he was stopped by Nova. Yes, that Nova, the teenaged Green Lantern knockoff from the 1970s. He went on to star in his own cosmic series, just to show that Steve Englehart's comment, made back in the 1970s, that there were no bad characters, just bad writers, has been proven true yet again. Anyway, here the heroes have been driven to the verge of defeat, before being dropped off in the lay-by of despair. However, Thanos, who has turned Galactus into a cosmic power battery for Annihilus, is not totally committed to the Dark Side, and decides to free Galactus, but unfortunately not before Drax the Destroyer kills him, but when has death ever got in the way of Thanos...

This is an incredibly entertaining comic, with very good artwork and is an excellent addition to Marvel's cosmic mythology, and proved to be the springboard to further cosmic series building on from here.
