Considiring it rates Annihilation as well as Planet Hulk as some of the worst comics in 2006, it's not exactly out looking to be taken seriously...
Annihilation itself has more deaths galore, story and impact on the Marvel Universe than Civil War probably will have. Yes, Spiderman unmasked himself, Goliath died and Captain America fought Iron Man. Whoop-de-fucking-doo!
Thanos died, new galactic threats came out, the Kree as well as the Skrull worlds have been pretty much raped, Nova Corps erased, galactic powers completely thrown off-balance and so much more goodness. CW doesn't even bloody come close to that amount of awesomeness.
Annihilation fucking blows, get over it
Civil War sucks
I think American Virgin is pretty good. Though I do agree about the lack of direction and art style to a point.
At the very least, you see that it was 10th on the list, so you can argue that it was barely a bad book. It's not like it was the 3rd or 4th worst comic of the year.
This was a good year for comics.
Annihilation is fantastic.
Annihilation is very good. I've never been as excited to pick up a book since Batgirl.
I just don't see how a person could call it bad. It's action packed. I'm obviously biased, though.
Different strokes and all that.
Uh. Ok, where is their headquarters? I'm going to have to send them my CW #3 Variant with my shit on it with a note that says, "FUCK YOU!"
Annihilation is fucking awesome. I can't think of a scene much cooler than either: A.) Drax running through hordes of the Annihilation Wave with nothing but two knives. or B.) Drax ripping Thano's heart right out of his chest... WITH HIS BARE HANDS! <-- Highlight to read spoiler. Does CW have a scene that can match this?
CW's appeal is it's pseudo-intellectual political bullshit that's obviously bias that serves to other people's pseudo-intellectual political bullshit. That's not comic books. That's just being partisan without a clear goal, besides to be partisan. Being "political" is "in" and Marvel is cashing in on that. That's probably what I hate the most about CW, a bias partisan bullshit crapfest with cool plots in between. I want my comics to be... comic-like. I want my badguys who overpower my good guys. I want to be fearful of the bad guy winning. I want big explosions and cool powers. Not 6 books with 2 fights and everyone being an emo fucker that states their political point. That's bullshit. If I wanted that, I'd go watch CNN and Fox News. There's a Civil War with more fighting than the Comic book Civil War.
If this were the real world, the galactic effects of the events of Annihilation would be far greater... but Civil War deals with characters people care about, so it kinda takes the cake on this one.
It may be a good series, but you cant expect people to care about it more or offer it nearly the recognition as CW
I'll kick anybody who doesn't care about Silver Surfer and Super Skrull in the nuts.
Its not that they are bad characters, but the whole galactic Marvel comics have had so many just awful runs in their time, its hard to get into them. I never even thought to touch Annihilation because from the however many issues of galactic series' I have read in my time, very few were remotely worth my money. Its a damned shame too.
Agreed. But this is the best ever.
The 2 of them could wipe out the entire pro/anti-registration with their farts.
Silver Surfer can. Super Skrull would get his ass handed by Speedball in tighty whities and a straight jacket with one eye closed.
Yeah because in the real world, big named characters mean moer than quality writing.
What a (no matter how true) crock of shit.
I like Annihilation.
Uhhh...Its Stan Lee meeting his creations. What exactly did this guy expect?
It is true, and it is a crock of shit. Not too much more to say about it.
that list can suck my balls. Annihilation is the shit. They kill thanos and you've got silver surfer back under the wing of one hell of a pissed off galactus (SP?)
If I wanted to collect Annihilation from the start with single issues, do you think that it would cost me a lot and would it be worth it?
