    Major Spoilers - Larry King May 12, 2011

    This comic book is a rarity, it balances detailed art, cost, and page count, while still being able to fully deliver the promise of a entertaining comic book. For those who like tales of cosmic chaos that you don't have to read twenty tie-ins to understand this comic may be for you. I for one will be with it until the end, which from all the accounts I can find, looks like it will be coming to a close in the fourth issue.In closing, Annihilators #3 receives 4.5 Stars, out of 5.

    Naturally, the Rocket Raccoon/Groot segment is wild, wacky fun. Abnett and Lanning clue readers into RR's shady past without ignoring his bizarre present circumstances. Groot doesn't have much to do sadly, but that will surely change next month. And Timothy Green's art is gorgeously rendered and incredibly expressive. His sporadic forays into cosmic Marvel have been attractive enough that I cross my fingers for a more permanent assignment. Read Full Review
