Annihilation: Conquest #4 of 6 (Marvel / Abnett&Lanning / Raney / Hanna)
“The cosmic blockbuster thunders on – with our villains on the verge of victory! Ultron gets his hands on Star-Lord! Ronan makes a chilling revelation! Adam Warlock gets the shock he never expected! Writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning join forces with superstar artist Tom Raney to bring you the sci-fi event that Wizard calls “Mystery, action and adventure on a galactic scale!”
We started so strong and I’m sure we’ll end strong, but this piece in the middle seems to be dragging on. The piece from Marvel is right. Ultron is torturing Star Lord, Ronan finds something, and Adam Warlock is betrayed. It all just seemed to fall a little flat in the way is was presented. The writers and artists do a good job, just the overall story feels like it’s slowing down when it should be picking up. In the end I think we’ll be saying that this is a 6-issue story that could have been told in 4 issues.
