If you're in AA, you can take a drink, as long as you spit it out immediately afterwards.
Civil War can go right to hell...well, some say it has already, but I digress.
Forget Civil War.
Howabout intergalactic war?
Forget that too. Interdimensional war is where it's at.
Annihilation fucking rocked.
THAT is a war.
That was substance over style. Widescreen storytelling, without the shallow depths that often seem to come with it. Getting in characters heads more than "Rar, I am Captain America, and I am upset! But I shall punch things and make it better!"
The entire Annihilation event was better written, with a better story, more engaging, and went to some length to make you care about the deaths of characters, and their sacrifices much more than Millar ever could hope to.
More of this, please?
