Marvel Comics & MySpace.com have teamed up to present your first look at the space epic ANNIHILATION: CONQUEST. The eagerly anticipated follow-up to Annihilation, which IGN.com called "one of 2006's best events," CONQUEST promises more action, drama, and surprises than its predecessor.
"The ANNIHILATION: CONQUEST PROLOGUE is the starting gun for the crazy sci-fi race that will rock all of your favorite cosmic heroes -- and introduce you to some soon-to-be favorites," explained editor Bill Rosemann. "NOVA writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning are sci-fi masters and--together with the amazing art of Mike Perkins (CAPTAIN AMERICA) --have crafted a kick-butt kick off to the entire event. As for what it's about, I'd have to say: humanity's eternal fight for freedom -- but I can't say who it's against!"
"The first ANNIHILATION event paved the way by reminding everyone just how cool Marvel's sci-fi heroes and villains were," added Rosemann. "ANNIHILATION: CONQUEST aims to continue the tradition while also attempting to deliver some different thrills and chills. We're also giving different and new characters the spotlight to strut their stuff. So if you read the first story, look for more widescreen action, breathtaking cliffhangers, and jaw-dropping surprises. And if you didn't read ANNIHILATION, all you need to know is that heroes like Star-Lord, Quasar and Wraith are fighting for your future!"
For the next week, the opening chapter of the ANNIHILATION: CONQUEST PROLOGUE will be available on MySpace.com, so be sure to visit and check it out at http://blog.myspace.com/marvelentertainment
