    ...so I decided today that it was time to pop my Annihilation cherry. I wasn't too interested when everyone was doing all the singing and dancing of praise to the event initially, because I'm not really into those books. Silver Surfer, Nova, Thanos... These galactic characters, I don't tend to follow. There is enough excitement on Earth to keep me satisfied. Now, when these character come to Earth, then I'll read how they interact with others...but just reading about their jaunts through the cosmos, no.

    But then I remembered that really liked the Infinity War. And the song and dance from that event was very similar to the current song and dance for Annihilation. So I gave it a try, and ended up reading all of the books this morning.

    And all I can say is WOW! :eek3: [I know that, technically, I said more than that in this post, aaaand actually already said that in the thread title, but who cares...I'm CoCo.]

    I cannot wait to see how this thing concludes...

    <That is all.>

    Wow, you picked the perfect time to read all the books: two days before the event concludes!!! You get the anticipation without the needless wait through 8 months!!!

    Yeah, Marvel and DC have been doing this for a while now :wtc: I mean, GL: Rebirth, Batman: Hush, New Avengers, 1602...all the good ones go straight to hardcover, then make us wait about 6 months for a paperback!!! I bought both volumes of Hush before a paperback was even published :wtc: :wtc:

    I honestly thought that the ending was pretty anticlimactic, especially with the build up that they had. They left a lot of possiblities open. It is almost as thought they had enough room for another issue, but decided that they didn't want to stretch it out to 7. Overall it was a pretty good storyline. Wonder if Nova or any of the rest are going to show up in the CW now that this is over.

    seeing nova rip annihilus inside out made it all worthwhile.

    but im kinda disapointed that annihilation and civil war didnt have a big crossover finale, especially with reed richards' prison being in the negative zone and the return of mar-vell.

    I was expecting Galactus and Surfer at least sweat a bit. But all they did was "RAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWRRRRRRRRR" then it's done. :ugh:

    I was kind of let down, I really wanted to see a better fight involving Galactus. It was like "Oh hay I'm galactus, you lose."

    It should have been longer, that ending was overall pretty weak.

    I gotta agree, somewhat of a lame ending considiring the action and pace of the series so far.
    I would've definitly loved to see more cosmic battles galore, but it was a pretty shitty ending having
    Galactus give a roar and boom everything is fucked up. I mean, come on, for fuck sake, the guy could've done that a long time ago then... It's the same as a prisoner bending over for getting ass-raped in the shower and when the deed is done he cries out in rage and kicks some ass... I mean, what the fuck?

    The best thing that was in that issue was probably that cameo by Thanos and Death.

    I still think the other Annihilus clone showed up and replaced the one we got used to seeing, then got raped.
