Dormammu Lays Siege in The Last Annihilation

In yesterday’s action-packed Guardians of the Galaxy #15, fans finally learned that the dark threat behind the upcoming cosmic crossover “The Last Annihilation” is none other than Dormammu, Lord of the Dark Dimension! The dreaded Doctor Strange adversary has merged with Ego the Living Planet and plans to use his powerful magical abilities to conquer space, forcing the galaxy to unite like never before. The saga will kick off on July 21st in Guardians of the Galaxy #16 where Dormammu’s endless army of Mindless Ones will put the new lineup of Guardians to the test. The crossover will continue in Ewing’s space-based X-Men title S.W.O.R.D. in an issue that will see Storm face one of her first challenges as the newly appointed Queen of Sol.

“The Last Annihilation” will also spin out into a series of one-shots, each focusing on a different corner of the galaxy as Dormammu unleashes his evil across space. Al Ewing will team up with artist Bob Quinn in Cable: Reloaded #1, featuring the highly-anticipated return of classic Cable who will lead a band of mutants on a mission to retrieve a dangerous weapon that’s deeply rooted in X-Men history. When Black Panther enlists the help of the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda in the war against Dormammu, a new hero rises in The Last Annihilation: Wakanda by writer Evan Narcisse and artist Germán Peralta. And writer Anthony Oliveira nd artist Jan Bazaldua will deliver another chapter in the saga of Marvel’s beloved power couple in The Last Annihilation: Wiccan & Hulkling, showcasing the might of the newlywed superheroes as they’re forced to split up to defend planets against Dormammu’s overwhelming forces.

This is what the new Guardians were built to do. But will it be too much? The war to end all wars begins. And not everyone’s going to come home. Check out the fully revealed cover of Guardians of the Galaxy #16 by Brett Booth below along with never-before-seen artwork and a “Last Annihilation” checklist.

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy #13

Guardians of the Galaxy #13

When the Guardians of the Galaxy relaunched under Al Ewing‘s guidance I was excited to check the series out. I followed it through its first arc and enjoyed where it was going. But I fell off and found myself reading an issue here and there that tied into something else. With Guardians of the Galaxy #13, the issue feels like another good jumping on point. It’s perfect for new readers as well as long-time fans.

My experience with the Guardians of the Galaxy goes back to the team from the future but I fell in love with the team during the Abnett and Lanning days. Since then there’s been ups and down (a lot of downs, lets be honest) but Ewing’s run has been solid (of what I’ve read of it). With The Kree and Skrulls now in an alliance, The Guardians of the Galaxy have a new role, that of superheroes. They’ve been soldiers, misfits, and thieves, but now they’re getting a more formalized take… Avengers in space. And that’s not a bad thing. With a large cast of heroes, the teams can now tackle multiple issues and try to help the infinite issues out there.

Guardians of the Galaxy #13 kicks off with two, an attack on the Kree/Skrull capital planet and the mystery of a cult on a mysterious planet. Each provides different aspects to the issue. With one we get the big-screen adventure and action. The other builds a mystery that will clearly play out down the line. We also get to know each team and members and how the various personalities play out. There’s also a bit of uniformity now too hearkening back to those classic days of matching uniforms (with a bit of a throwback to them).

The art by Juan Frigeri is fantastic. Frigeri is joined by Federico Blee on color and Cory Petit on lettering. There’s some amazing visuals that make you take notice. From the opening of Throneworld II to Super Skrull managing the teams, to the Guardians arriving to battle, and more, there’s so much to enjoy. There’s a fun energy about the art. The colors help and the lettering adds personality to so many of the characters. All of that combines into a visual treat that makes the comic fun!

Guardians of the Galaxy #13 is a near-perfect jumping-on point. There’s just one sequence between Peter and Gamora that feels really out of place. But, beyond that, the comic is a fun adventure. There’s a certain energy and excitement about the issue that jumps from the page. If you’ve wondered about the Guardians of the Galaxy, this is the point to hop and because it looks like it’s going to be an awesome ride.
