THE GALAXY'S MOST MAGNIFICENT!From the fallout of ANNIHILATION and the end of the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, an all-too-familiar cosmic threat has returned, this time with Earth as his beachhead. His followers span a thousand worlds, awaiting only the word to begin new wars in his name… unless the ANNIHILATORS can silence him first! So why do THE AVENGERS stand in their way, and what are the true stakes if either side fails? Plus, continuing our backup adventure, it's MOJO versus ROCKET RACCOON & GROOT onstage for a high-stakes campy cosmic free-for-all!

    One area this series continues to excel in is the Rocket Raccoon/Groot backup. Though criminally shortened compared to the previous series, this adventure packs in all the comedy, frantic action, and cosmic hijinks readers could hope for. And Timothy Green's art ties it all together in a very attractive package. Read Full Review

    Well this issue sure was predictable! Seriously, would it have hurt for Quasar to tell the Avengers what he and the Annihilators were doing on Earth? Read Full Review

    My only real complaint here is the Rocket Raccoon/Groot back-up story gets even more truncated than it did in the first issue. We only get five pages of the pair stuck in Mojo‘s TV studio fighting out battles for the alien's entertainment. I enjoyed the story, and I love how artist Timothy Green II draws Rocket Racoon. I just wanted a few more pages of this story. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    There's often a problem with guest stars, as some writers don't know how to handle them. The Avengers in this issue seemed a little bit off in dialog, but I guess that can be forgiven. The rest of the issue, dialog aside, seemed was definitely on the food side, but not amazing by any means. Read Full Review

    Conceptually, "Annihilators: Earthfall" #2 is smart, playing the Annihilators and Avengers against one another in a manner that makes sense and would seem out of place if it didn't happen. The art doesn't carry its share of the load for the fight scenes, though, which is disappointing. An entire issue of the Avengers fighting the Annihilators could have been a visual feast and, instead, it's merely a good comic. Read Full Review
