    As you can see above, it's not the concepts behind Conquest that are the problem. It all has to do with the execution. There's just too much happening, that everything feels shortchanged. We're switching between three different groups (Star-Lord, Ronan, and High Evolutionary), as well as witnessing various Ultron flashbacks. I might get crucified for making such a suggestion, but I think all the different sides would been better served if the series were longer than six issues or some of the plot were part of an additional tie-in series. I can honestly say that I have no idea how everything is going to be wrapped up in a satisfactory fashion by next issue. While I generally hate the concept of the tie-in, it's not so deplorable if there's enough material to do it, especially when the alternative is trying to cram it all into one six issue series.

    I love the series and enjoyed the issue, but I don't think this was a Must Read issue for anyone except the most diehard Annihilation fans, like myself. Final issue is doublesized, so maybe they'll be able to wrap up the numerous plot threads without rushing it. Read Full Review
