    Having now read the first chapter of Conquest itself, I know for a fact these characters can be written better than they are. I don't even blame Gage entirely. The writer is one of Marvel's most eclectic, penning issues of everything from Union Jack to Iron Man to World War Hulk: X-Men. Every writer has their own strengths, and operatic space epics simply aren't Gage's. Rest assured that Phyla-Vell will be moving on to grander and more exciting adventures from this point, and let's just hope that the upcoming House of M: Avengers plays more to Gage's talents.

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy Nov 1, 2007

    So that brings our Annihilation: Conquest count up to one good series from start to finish (at least so far Starlord finishes up next week, I assume), one decent series that ended up having no real impact on the overall story at all (that would be Nova), one pretty bad series (Wraith), and now one that had a lot going for it, but just wasnt pulled off very well (Quasar). As for buying suggestions, what can I say? If youve been getting this title and are going to get Annihilation: Conquest then you will get this issue, regardless. If youve been waiting to pick them all up at once, skip it. Its really not worth the effort, even if youre still going to get Conquest, since it should give you enough detail to know whats going on.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 31, 2007

    Aside from the big splash page reveal of Adam Warlock, there is nothing worth seeing in this issue. Is one page of something you've been spoiled on worth plodding through this overly sappy and cliched comic? I don't think so. Save some money and skip this. Gage is usually so much better than this. Not sure what happened here. Read Full Review
