The situation becomes less absurd and more desperate this month, as the team struggles to find the mysterious secret weapon of the Phalanx and avoid capture. The latter proves to be especially difficult. I'm also loving Timothy Green's art, even though I still find myself wishing he were a little more diverse in drawing facial expressions. The Kevin Maguire comparisons are never far behind when it comes to Green, but without strong facial work the comparison just doesn't stick. That aside, this continue to be my favorite Conquest book, and I'll be an unhappy camper indeed if I can't have my Rocket Raccoon on a monthly basis from now on. Read Full Review
So, to sum up, this is the best of the Annihilation: Conquest minis, without question. It doesnt have the goofy misuse of genre clichs that plague Wraith. It lacks the questionable plotting and downright horrible dialogue of Quasar (not to mention the Rick Santorum-esque lesbianism-to-bestiality slippery-slope undertones). And it is avoiding the casual death and destruction that is becoming central to Novas entries in this event. Personally, Im a little worried that Abnett and Lannings approach on Nova is going to carry over into their scripting of the main series.
