Annihilation: Conquest continues here -- as the Human Rocket zooms into the next sci-fi saga!

Hang on tight as Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning (ANNIHILATION: NOVA) and Sean Chen (IRON MAN) take you inside the next cosmic war!
BONUS REVIEW by W. DAL BUSH
Back in its comfort zone, Nova barrels from Initiativeness into Annihilationosity with this, the first of a four part lead-in to "Annihilation: Conquest" Oops! I totally should've tossed Annihilation into last week's Thor review. Here, cut and paste this: "Save me, Worldmind!" Anyway, the typical Abnett and Lanning magic gets this issue hopping with some well executed space combat, a crazy twist at the end (assuming you haven't seen the cover to the next issue) and inbetween, the surprise reappearance of a classic cosmic character (assuming you haven't seen the cover to the issue after next) sure to excite the folk who buy Annihilation tie-ins. Which, for this one, should be you! 'Cause it's good. 7 Grahams
