Not a huge story Arc but fans of The Inhumans and Cosmic Characters dig it like my self so come discuss. Anyone who has been keeping up to date what do you think? I am really enjoying it.

I'm enjoying it, even though I don't really care for the Inhumans. Otherwise, what's happening in Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova and Imperial Guard is very interesting. 
 
I wonder what's going to happen with the Quasars.

I've been enjoying everything Abbnett and Lanning has been doing since Annihilation. WoKs and RoKs is just another great story arcs that aren't really getting the attention and accolades they deserve. Notibly becasue they take a back seat to the Earth-bound heroes, and Joey Q's man-crush on Bendis.
 
But hey that's a good thing, leaves Abbnett and Lanning to their own devices for the most part :)

The Black Bolt and Nova fanboy I am I just eat it up my favorite thing Marvel is doing right now.

RoK is a huge step up from WoK, but I'm wondering where Alex and Lorna have been for the last few months.

@Truex: I know some of the Jammers went into the Fault, but I am not sure if they were part of that team or not. But ya I figured they'd be in it more, considering their relationship with Crystal.

nice idea. honestly im more excited for it than Dark Reign, Siege or the Hulk stuff,
but it could be accredited to the fact that im a sci-fi nut, i dunno. im already liking
this better than War Of Kings. probably because most of the books involved are that well
done on their own. I also dont feel too much predictability from these books, which is a major
plus in my book.

@Nova`Prime`: Only Raza and Ch'od(funniest name ever) went into the fault with the Imperial Guard but so far there has been no mention of the location of the rest of the crew

Anyone have any theories on where this is going? To be honest, it seemed like it all started on the same page, but has branched off quite a bit. It's not so much Fault oriented anymore. 
 
GotG - the Magus has re-returned 
Nova - dealing with the Sphinx
Inhumans - Maximus attempting a takeover
Imperial Guard -  Only book still dealing with the Fault and tying in to the Realm of Kings one shot
Son of Hulk - Just started, almost seems to have nothing to do with anything
 
It just seems like nothing is really tying in together. Any thoughts?

I think Marvel is gonna have a cosmic event after this one, that would tie in all the characters.

@jloneblackheart: 
doesnt seem to tied together, no. 
more of a theme than an actual crossover arc, but i gotta admit its working.

@CATMANEXE: I'm enjoying all of it as well. It's just I don't usually read too many major events, but the ones I have read all seem to tie together toward one big 'hurrah' at the end.

@jloneblackheart: 
pretty much. thats why i think i like it better. its nowhere near as predictable as events (which is where im calling it on theme)
and it seems when the characters dont have an exact job to do in the crossover itself that the writers have alot more stretching room.

I really enjoyed reading this crossover but i don't really know what it achieved, it wasn't really an event either and there was no real conclusion
