    I'm a fan of cosmic Marvel stories, but only when they're done right. Speaking as someone who hasn't even read every Annihilation: Scourge book, I loved this one and I have to recommend this to everyone who likes a lot of fun and big action in their comics. This is an easy pick up even if you haven't been reading the series and quite possibly one of the best Beta Ray Bill stories ever. Put it on the list! Read Full Review

    Ever wondered why an absurd-looking horse man is so popular? Then snatch up this issue, you get the meat and potatoes of Beta Ray Bill simplified and yet get to start a new journey with the character. Nothing but win here my friends. Read Full Review

    Though it reads more like a set-up to the incoming Omega issue, Annihilation Scourge: Beta Ray Bill #1 is a fun solo showing for the cult favorite character. Read Full Review

    ANNIHILATION - SCOURGE: BETA RAY BILL #1 feels unnecessary to an event many would argue is unnecessary. An inconsistent tone, thin story, and questionable hero choice hurts what has been a mostly enjoyable little series. For a mini event to work, every tie-in book has to matter, and ANNIHILATION " SCOURGE: BETA RAY BILL #1 just doesnt feel like it does. Read Full Review

    Is it an outstanding issue? No, like I mentioned before these one shots are beginning to feel very paint by numbers. Is that a bad thing? Not overly, but holds it back from really standing out for the crowd. Good set up for Annihilation Scourge though, and it was good seeing Beta Ray Bill taking the lead here. Read Full Review

    Out of the four one-shots they've done, this one might be the most inconsequential as it feels largely standalone with little connective tissue to the rest. Read Full Review
