    Overall. This has been a really fun ride. And having Dr. Doom and the whole science versus magic aspect in the story. Truly made things interesting. Read Full Review

    Guardians of the Galaxy#18 is a great send-off to a fantastic arc and a love letter to Ewing's own stint on the title. ThisGuardiansrun will surely be remembered as one of the greats and while it's sad to see it go, it really couldn't have ended on a stronger note. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 22, 2021

    Guardians of the Galaxy #18 brings down the curtain with a satisfyingly dramatic win. But it turns out, this volume hit "peak mystic weirdness" back in the previous arc, and this one is much more straightforward. While the mundanity of this finale might disappoint a few strange-headed readers (like me), most will be entirely happy with this end. It still maintains the volume's impeccably high standards of verbal and visual craftsmanship, and it ties its main plot up neatly while throwing out a few solid sequel hooks. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Sep 22, 2021

    Guardians of the Galaxy #18 serves as the big finale to The Last Annihilation. The comic is good but I wish it could be great since it's very by-the-numbers and the story is pretty predictable, especially if you kept up with the tie-ins. Dormammu himself isn't an entertaining villain, since he doesn't really do anything except look menacing. The crossover event as a whole just feels underwhelming, and it's Dr. Doom who ends up stealing the show in this comic in more ways than one. Read Full Review

    There are some interesting developments here with Rich Rider, but outside of everything else, this mini-event really ended with a whimper compared the other entries in the line the past few months. Read Full Review
