    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.

It is still a cosmic book, you cannot have there be a truely universe threatening event every couple months or it loses something. The original Annihilation is one of the best series I have ever read, period. Conquest was a downgrade but still a good read. Nova and GotG are both very very very good too. The best Marvel is putting out right now, I would also say Ghost Rider is but that is more personel bias.

This is more about the cosmic empires and to be honest working the Shi'ar in better. They were supposed to be part of the original Annihilation but they could not permission to use them because they were being used by the x men writters at the moment. Not sure but it sounded like someone had a fit or something.

Its not a bad read, I loved the Guardians showing up but you are right that it lacks a pressing drive to it. I could care less what the Inhumans or the Shi ar do to be quite honest with you. Not a huge fan of either of them and the Kree are fine with me but ronan got the shaft hard in this one. Its not a bad book by any means and I like some of the things it is doing. DnA does really well with this type of story I just find the space empire stuff to be less interesting. It is still cosmic as it is space empires and such, but it is not cosmic in the sense that alot of forces are fighting invaders from another dimension, or someone trying to gain ultimate power etc. Usually we get some Galactus heralds showing up and some other big guns. That is one of the big things of Annihilation, Galactus getting dragged into it.

I would love to see an event similar to Annihilation happen with the mystical universe with marvel and maybe a war between magic and cosmic, like have Dormammu finally win his way into the normal universe because the new Sorcerer Supreme is not up to the task at hand. Then it creates a similar to Annihilation event but directly pitting the magical against science and such. I would say it could be a Earth spanning event too but I rather it not be about a bunch of people stopping Dormammu who have no buisness even facing off against him.
