    With this Prologue, Annihilation: Conquest is shaping up to be another sleeper hit from Marvel. The story is engaging, the action is epic, and the dialogue (especially Quills) is brilliant. This looks like it may be the Godfather Part II to the wonderful Annihilation saga. Read Full Review

    All that I can really complain about is that Annihilation is another big event involving many titles that I probably dont have the money to afford. If youre interested in this or love DCs space stuff, give it a look at the very least. This Prologue is barely a continuation of the previous Annihilation story and is a good jumping on point.

    While I question the need for another major event so soon after Annihilation (which hasnt even been completely collected yet), and would prefer more monthly and mini-series to another crossover, Conquest has the potential to be as epic and entertaining as its predecessor. Read Full Review

    The reason why Peter Jackson didnt include the Scouring of the Shire sequence in his Lord of the Rings adaptations is because, while it serves a purpose in the broader scheme of the books, dramatically it comes across as a strange and extraneous addition after all the large-scale drama that has gone before. Thats how this comic feels to me, only that I cant work out what the purpose is, beyond squeezing some extra cash from the Annihilation brand. Disappointing. Read Full Review
