Annihilation - great, redefined the cosmic crossover event
conquest - hot on the heels of success, ok but not as good
War of Kings - back in stride, great action and story
Realm of Kings - still not sure what the story was
Thanos Imperative - "cancer-verse" and evil counterparts....Infinity War anyone?
Annihilators - People will still read a beautiful- looking tale, but you can't polish a turd.
Chaos War - PAK realises that the cosmic crossover ain't as simple as it seems.
Recipe for cosmic greatness:
Take some great characters and create a good deal of menace. Add in some great action, solid characterisation and a twist. Even add some humour. Have the victory be bittersweet and perhaps be a game changer or new status quo. characters don't have to die, but can be put to rest for a while. probably the same anyway!
