What has Gamora - now a special Select agent of the Phalanx - done to Rich Rider? Has the Worldmind fallen into the hands of the tyrannical tech race? And which ANNIHILATION character returns to alter Nova's role as the protector of the universe?

    My only complaint is that I was looking for more insight into the Phalanx and Annihilation: Conquest in general with this final 'tie-in' issue. Seeing Nova, Gamora and Drax all written out of that major event, when they were my favourite parts of the last one, really disappoints me. Despite that, the issue was still great and did a good job setting up the next phase of the Nova title and wrapped up several aspects of the Conquest story. Read Full Review

    Lackluster ending aside, I still generally enjoyed this issue. The art is impressive, particularly on the Brain Denhem-penciled pages. From the beginning of this series Nova has come across as a less mopey version of the Sentry. In this case, that's a strike against Robert Reynolds rather than Richard Rider. Even if Nova flys off into the sunset and has nothing to do with another Annihilation book, I'd continue to relish every issue. Good cosmic stories are too few and far between at Marvel these days.

    So, all in all, its a three bullet affair. Its pretty average quality as a whole with a few brighter patches that provide interest for things to come. There are a lot of possibilities open at the end of this issue, as Nova is no longer being tied to big crossover events, and hopefully, will now be able to develop its own stories and create its own event.
