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.
