Some of My Friends Read Comics 079 – Annihilation: Conquest

somfrc079

Time to head back to outer space!

After the events of Annihilation, Marvel’s reinvigorated galactic universe gets taken over by robots. Sequel time!

Annihilation: Conquest brings back Nova, Quasar, Moondragon, Star-Lord and a whole slew of outer space favorites.

Rocket and Groot make their modern debuts too. We say modern because Groot’s 1st appearance was back in Tales to Astonish #13 from 1960. But he was a little… different. If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that trees will always be popular in comic books.

Does it count as a spoiler if it’s in the title? Jim Starlin don’t care, he does what he wants.

He and Marvel changed up their regular comic book format with The Death of Captain Marvel in 1982, the beginning of a line of original graphic novels intended to be richer stories for a more mature audience and published like traditional books.

But what kills him?!?!?! Sorry, no spoilers.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 064 – Annihilation

Marvel goes back to space! After several decades of neglecting some of their outer space properties, they decided to bring it all back to the spotlight with a big cosmic event in 2006 called Annihilation.

There were a lot of aliens we hadn’t met before, but a few familiar faces (even if Star-Lord did have a weird cybernetic eye).

We read the main event in issues 1-6, but we’ll also discuss all the other event comics that went along with it so we can try to sort through this gigantic cast of characters.

We’re heading back out to space!

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps building towards Infinity War, we’re doing the same with all of Jim Starlin’s Infinity books and this time it’s the Infinity Gauntlet, a 6-issue miniseries and one of Marvel’s best event comics of all time.

Spoiler Alert: Thanos kills everybody.
