BONUS REVIEW by W. DAL BUSH
Speaking of Strikeforce: Morituri, they get a kina-sorta little shout-out at the end, but the rest is your typical excellent snarky Keith Giffen sci-fi action gem. Washed up space hero Starlord gets rooked by the Kree survivors of the Conquest one-shot into putting together a squad of criminals (familiar faces all) that'll make a do-or-die raid on the Phalanx stronghold. A Suicide Squad, one might say if one remembered that Giffen worked on a title of the same name, grudgingily saving the folks who tossed 'em behind bars. A fairly worn premise, but again, the typically excellent snark of Keith Giffen keeps the whole thing simultaneously light and dark. Here's the Annihilation book for those looking for a way in to all the spacey goodness (other) folks have been raving about. 8 Grahams
