I liked yesterday's What If? Planet Hulk. It could be since it was written by Greg Pak. It felt...real. Or at least relevant. "What if the Annihilation Wave invaded during the Civil War?" It could be interesting. Buuuut, I wasn't too crazy about David Hine's Silent War. I was actually bored. I've mentioned before that I'm also losing interest in the Annihilation comics. Being that this is closer to "home," maybe it'll be a different story.
Annihilus’ wave of destruction leveled entire worlds of the Kree and Skrull Empire. But writer David Hine (Silent War) and artists Mico Suayan (Moon Knight) and Rafael Kayanan (Conan) dare to ask What If?...the Annihilation wave made its way to Earth!
Hine describes it as "when events collide. The ultimate crossover book...in one bold story!” Fans have clamored to see what would have happened if Annihilation and Civil War collided and What If? Annihilation delivers!
In What If? Annihilation, the valiant heroes Nova, Drax, Phyla-Vell and Peter Quill fail to halt Annihilus and his murderous rampage across the universe. And eventually the tyrant from the Negative Zone brings his devastating armies to Earth, during the height of both Civil War and Silent War! In the face of a far greater enemy, Marvel heroes struggle to mend their broken alliances. But can both sides work together in spite of the broken trust and newfound animosity?
Meanwhile, the Inhumans have an important decision to make. Betrayed by a world that now so desperately needs their help, the Inhumans’ leader Black Bolt now hesitates to help those he once called allies.
Will the Inhumans come to Earth’s aid? Can the Marvel heroes repair their fractured alliances and stand up against the wave of Annihilation? The answers to these questions and more will be revealed in What If? Annihilation.
