In 2006, Marvel was making big news with their huge "Civil War" event. But while this conflict spread out on Earth, Keith Giffen, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning were making huge waves with their own epic event, one that would elevate Marvel cosmic to bold new heights and remind you of how the universe was bigger than just one planet. It set the bar for slews of follow-ups and with the "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie making these characters bigger, Marvel is now putting out a single book of the huge Annihilation event that shows a space epic that puts most big-screen movies to shame.

It actually starts with "Drax the Destroyer: Earthfall," a mini-series where a prison ship of aliens crashes on Earth. The dim-witted Drax is killed by the others but returns to life, not as powerful but much smarter. He befriends a young Earth girl named Cammi as he takes on the other criminals. Then, the "Annihilation: Prologue" one-shot kicks it all off as the Nova Corps is decimated by the Annihilation Wave, a huge armada of warships and monstrous creatures wiping out entire planets in their path. The end of the issue reveals it's led by Annihilus, out to destroy our universe once and for all. This leads to a set of four-issue mini-series that showcase the major players:
*"Nova" has Richard Rider the sole survivor of the Corps with their Worldmind downloaded into his helmet. Meeting up with Drax and Cammi, he faces off against Annihilus with the aid of Quasar, leading to a big death that shows the stakes.
*"Ronan" has the Kree Accuser framed for treason and going on his own to clear his name. He soon lands on a planet controlled by a dark being unaware his power is nothing against what's coming as Ronan battles Gamora.

I spend so many months considering getting the Annihilation books because I heard so many good things about it, but the third hardcover was out of print and it was insanely expensive in other sites, so that stopped me big time.

Until now :)

This is a beautiful book! The edition I mean. Standard Marvel Omnibus. You get the picture.

I just read the first two issues, which I might add, it have lovely art. I can't wait to keep on going and finish this baby, but so far is GREAT!!

Not sure if all the extras on the hardcover were ported here (because I never had them), but I can see a good sort of goodies at the end of the book.

I'll try to get some pics later in the week, so you can see this.

As of now, I hope you buy this so Annihilation Conquest Omnibus is a possibility as well.

Cheers!!!

This was an absolutely fantastic read! I had been a little hesitant about buying this as its a fairly high asking price for a modest number of pages (though its still a monster to carry around) but it turned out to be worth it. Its an epic widescreen cosmic event which really benefits from the larger omnibus page size treatment. For the most part the art is wonderful and a joy to look at. The story is absorbing from start to finish. I wasn't very familiar with the Marvel Cosmic characters or stories before reading this. Sure I knew about Galactus and his Heralds and vaguely remembered the Super-Skrull from a FF comic read many years ago but that was about it. Luckily that did not prevent my from enjoying the story. The mini-series in the early part of the omnibus do a good job introducing the various characters and there are small character bios inter-spaced between issues which gave additional background whenever I wanted to know more about someone. All in all I'm happy to have this on my bookshelf and will be looking to delve further in to Marvel's cosmic line.

Very simply put, if you want some awesome Marvel universe action NOT dealing with the 80 million superhero teams on earth (I'm rounding up), this is the book to read. Buying everything individually is either not possible in some cases, or exorbitantly over-priced in others.

Great artwork, awesome story, lots of action.

Marvel comes back to cosmic sagas in high style! Keith Giffen and Co. do a outstanding work with this series. Although it has several limied series (as Drax, Ronan, Nova, Silver Surfer and Super-Skrull) the main series is really the core of the Omnibus. It also contains the limited series Herealds of Galactus, the Prologue and the Nova Corps Files. There are good and bad writings and drawings as there are many writers and artists before the 6-part Annihilation limited series, but, in general, it is good. I really recommend this to any fan of cosmic sagas, Guardians of the Galaxy, Silver Surfer, Nova, and so on! The book is also beautiful with this same art printed in the hard cover itself. I really liked it. I hope Marvel launch Annihilation 2!

simply amazing!!!!! the artwork, writing and story are great!! if you want to know whats happening on the other side of the universe during the events of Marvel's Civil War, then this is the book for you. With the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie coming out soon, this was a great way to get introduced to some of the lesser know characters that will be appearing in the new film. A must have for any Marvel fan!!!
