I have a soft spot for Marvel Cosmic. I think it started with the Micronauts. So I'm pretty excited about this event. Definitely some characters I don't recognize, but I'm liking it a lot and the "Saga" comic really helped fill me on events that I had missed. ( )

Not much to say about this other than it bridges the story from where it left off as a mostly X-Men related story to a much more broad storyline that ties into several of Marvel's cosmic titles.

Recommended only if you're interested in these titles and have been keeping up with the Marvel storylines that are leading into War of Kings. ( )

It's about time that Marvel starts using their cosmic characters more often, and I have really enjoyed what I've read so far.

If you're unfamiliar with the Inhumans, the Kree, and the Shi'Ar Empire, then this trade will probably make little sense. However, in the very back, there's a good overview of the last several years of history for the Inhumans, the Shi'Ar, and the Starjammers, so that's a good place to start.

The art is good, and I've always liked Christopher Yost (who did most of the writing collected here). My only complaint is that there's a lot of fighting without much plot development, which I hope will be remedied in War of Kings proper. ( )

Too much Star Wars and not enough Marvel Comics - plot confusing - mixed bag of characters - no development within the story - erratic jumping around from one group to another - hard to maintain focus on the story's progress. Too much came before this collection and too much left to happen afterward, but not enough here to make me want to see out the remainder. ( )
