Anyone else reading this? Am I the only one pouring money down the cosmic rat hole here?
Yes, I´m pouring my money into it, too. ;D
All that sort of thing would be forgiveable if the story was simply enjoyable. But, alas...
Hm, it seems I´m taking more liberties with these stories (not to say with the writers), not unlike NA.
Though, I didn´t like the prologue (story was a little bit confusing to read for me, didn´t like the art).
At first I thought the storyline a little too simple, but why not Annihilus trying to conquer (destroy) our universe. All in all I´m a little bit reminded to the Shadow in Babylon 5, but that´s not a problem for me. But, until now the storyline get´s better and better, I enjoyed 3 of the 4 mini series, especially Nova and lately Silver Surfer. The only one I still don´t like is Ronan. Don´t like the story (very confusing to read for me, but then, I´m not native english speaking) and for sure I do not like the art at all.
So, I´m looking forward the main mini series and hoping they´ll give Annihilus what he deserves.
WILLIAMS-MARVEL-COMIC-ARCHIV A comprehensive archiv about German Marvel Comics in the 1970s.
I just picked up the trade of Book 1, now that they are finally hitting paperback.
I am actually really liking it. I didn't notice the Titan and Jupiter thing, because I didn't read the little database/filler items at first.
I did notice they finally got it right, with Phyla-Vell's entry, saying she was from Titan the 14th moon of Saturn (Sol VI). Though I am not sure where the 14th moon parts comes from because according to Wikipedia, Titan is the 20th most-distant moon. Maybe the Marvel U's Saturn doesn't grant moon status to some of the smaller satellites orbiting it.
At any rate, I am really enjoying the story. I especially enjoyed the initial prison ship crash (though by the end of Book 1, the little girl is really wearing thin), and I enjoyed the Xandarian invasion/destruction and the beginning of Nova's new phase in life.
Things did seem a little disjointed at first, however.
