Ray Spass' life was a complete mess - a crumbling screenwriting career, a failed love life, an inoperable brain tumor - but that was before his screenplay's fictional hero, deep-space fugitive Max Nomax, showed up in real life, insisting that his tumor contains a universe of secrets. Now, the only way for Ray to save his own life (and our existence) is to extract the information, one chapter at a time. Partnering with his fictional creation, Ray drags his ex, Luna, into their vortex of chaos. As the group faces an unexpected monster, Nomax makes a shocking revelation that endangers everyone involved.

    Irving is one of the great comic book artists of our time and this issue is just further proof of that. I've always been so astonished in the way that he separates the different world's and how the muted colors burst with so much life. As you can see by the cover that he drew, he's a fan of symmetry and I believe that he and Morrison are two parts of a symmetrical whole just as Lomax and Ray are in the story. You see? I could go all days relating little things to 4 issues (so far) of one of the best comics I've ever seen or read. Read Full Review

    Morrison's manic energy is brilliantly conveyed through Frazer Irving's engaging and absolutely gorgeous artwork. (Sequences where Nomax " from within Ray's mind " attempts to create his own universe feature art that is simply some of the best this year has seen.) The contained color palate with which Irving employs gives Annihilator a visual distinction, causing the book to stand out among the more generic offerings from certain other companies I could mention here. One wonders how Annihilator will ultimately end, but with men like Grant Morrison and Frazer Irving at the helm one thing's for certain " it's certainly gonna be pretty. Read Full Review
