The build-up to Marvel's massive event series of the spring begins here-but in actuality, it began a millennia ago, with a challenge on the moon! In the wake of INCOMING, everything has changed for the Kree and the Skrulls. And out in the cold on Earth, the Warner family (MEET THE SKRULLS) need to work out what has happened and what it means for the future of their family and their race! And that means educating their kids on just how the Kree and the Skrulls first went to war!

    Road To Empyre: The Kree/Skrull War has a tall task to achieve, but it manages to stick the landing and then some by issue's end. Read Full Review

    I'm in awe of how good this book looks and how well it reads. I'm not much of a Skrull or Kree fan, nor am I a history buff on either, but after reading this book, I'm far more interested in their storied histories. Even if you plan to skip Empyre, I highly recommend every Marvel fan read this so they can bathe in the glory of comics visual storytelling at its peak. Read Full Review

    Road to Empyre: The Kree/Skrull War sets up Empyre by getting the reader up to speed on the Kree and Skrull, but cleverly, it also sets the stakes for what's to come as well. What can make two bitter enemies join forces? We have to wait to find that out, but this Road to Empyre already makes it so much bigger. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jan 1, 1970

    Overall, Im really excited to have read this issue. Im astounded at how much story theyve been able to pack into these pages. Not only does it provide a solid history of Marvel comic events, but it finishes with such dramatic tension that will leave you gasping for the next tie in story! Read Full Review

    A nice primer and recap that sets the stage for Marvels upcoming Empyre event. Theres quite a bit of exposition for that dumped, but its all rendered stylishly by Javier Rodriguez and Alvaro Lopez, making it a real treat to consume. Read Full Review

    Road to Empyre: The Kree/Skrull War #1 delivers visually, but narratively focuses too much on set-up and not enough on character. Read Full Review
