Subj: One pretty trivial reason I'm not enjoying it as much as I expected

    WOK is interesting but i found it not as great as the annihilations, maby it's because i'm not an x-fan or maby i just miss the cosmic charecters that took a back seat in the story.
    i'm not sure but it's just not that good.

I agree. Thought I am loving GotG and Nova regardless if they are WoK tie ins or not, WoK does nothing for me. I am still getting it, but it hasn't engorossed me and drawn me in the way the other cosmic events did.

Honestly i suspect that for me it is more due to the fact that I am not a big inhumans fan nor does vulcan interest me.

I am interested in the imperial guard though, and am very curious whether or not it will touch upon any of the guard who vanished without a trace over the years. According to wikkipedia their is enough missing guard to make two superteams.

If vulcan is ever defeated and a more benign gov't put in place i'd like to see a guard series.

The last two Cosmic stories each had a big surprise reveal that really amped the momentum of the storyline, while WoK is a pretty basic story with no big surprises as of yet, I'm almost thinking the 'aftershocks' of this storyline is what will make it all worthwhile because right now it's just sort of 'meh' for me. There's still hope for the next two issues, i even have a few crazy ideas.

-Doom 2099 shows up to take over space. (CRAZY I know, I thought this up months ago when an issue of GotG had an alien oracle mention a future doom coming, crazy, but I like it)

-Vulcan ends up with the Pheonix Force (Rachel losing it made me first think it was because Jean Grey was returning, but hey, maybe it found a new and evil host)

-Inhumans take over the Negative Zone

-Maximus ends up the King of everything

WoK is still well done, it just doesn't have all the big crazy moments I was kind of expecting.

Really, all i hope for in the end is that Havok and crew either get a regular series as the Starjammers or most of them all join up with Guardians of the Galaxy.
