    This book has its fair share of thrilling scenes"and it also has its fair share of hopelessness and sorrow. Luckily it's all balanced to equal a pretty well-rounded book. Read Full Review

    What started as a promising series ends with sloppy writing and rushed art, not a good look for Marvel. Read Full Review

    FINAL THOUGHTSANNIHILATION " SCOURGE OMEGA #1 is a disappointing ending to an otherwise decent little event. It doesnt feel like Matthew Rosenberg had the space to form a cohesive final, and Manuel Garcias art did little to alleviate the strained story. Perhaps the worst sin of this conclusion is that the naysayers going into it will feel vindicated, when even a slightly above average issue would have resulted in a fine six-issue story. Unfortunately, ANNIHILATION " SCOURGE OMEGA #1 disproves the adage of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Read Full Review

    I wish Marvel had taken the time to tell this tale properly and give it a bit of space to breathe, as it stands however it's rushed and a big disappointment. Some of the art was really good however, and I enjoyed the fact it gave Nova a big role, but these alone aren't enough to save it from mediocrity. Read Full Review

    This was probably the weakest issue of this whole event, which is a shame as the lead up to this was actually really good. And I've made jokes about the point of this event, or rather the lack of it, but that feels extra ironic now that there really isn't a point to this. But hey, at least they didn't kill Richard Rider again after just bringing him back.

    This was okay but felt a little… hurried? Pointless? I don’t know.

    I wanted to like this more then I did. I enjoyed all the issues leading to this conclusion and the ending certainly had potential and some good stuff, it just felt a bit off.

    Spoilers

    Novas return with a whole bunch of reinforcements was great BUT taking a close look at who was there was a problem. Maybe I missed something but Airwalker died in the original annihilation. Did I miss his return somewhere? And was that Frankie's Reyes Nova who died way back in Silver Surfer 75? And as far as I'm aware hasn't been mentioned since? And Rage from the New Warriors I hear died recently in that Venom/poison event. (I didn't read it) so I found three characters who should not have been there. I'm not against character resurrect more

    I thought the Alpha issue was alright, and I loved the next 4 one-shots but man, what a let down. Annihilation: Scourge Omega is a tale of 2-halfs. The first half of this issue is a bunch of choppy dialogue as the the Fantastic Four, Silver Sentry, and Beta Ray Bill all gather and team up. The second half of this issue is a huge, uninspired battle scene between the Cancerverse and the FF’s band of refugees, plus a whole army of every Marvel cosmic space character that Nova assembled and randomly appeared with. This whole issue was just so stupid. The whole reason the Cancerverse is destroying the Negative Zone is because Richard Rider was cured from them like half a decade ago, and he’s “the one that got away”. The heroes defeat the more

    Really good ending! Some great action and characterisation, though it ends quite abruptly, but I do believe this will definitely be followed upon in some future stories.

    I wanted more of Sentry but it seems like this is more of Nova then anything. hopefully they make more Sentry with cosmic story.

    "It's mostly a buncha space gibberish, now that I think about it."

    Between Scourge and 2099, hopefully, Marvel has learned that "no miniseries only tie-ins" is not the recipe for a successful event.
