Great action, lots of character moments and, ignoring the odd way Abnett and Lanning moved us to the endgame with the TBomb, the promise of the final showdown next issue has me dying to find out what happens next.

Intending to restore their strength and security in the aftermath of the Secret Invasion, Jack Bolt finds he has lead the Inhumans into direct confrontation with the Shi'Ar Empire and their insane ruler, Vulcan.

War of Kings was a damn good cosmic event from Marvel that took place around the same time as Dark Reign/Seige. Starring the Inhumans, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Vulcan, this event throws pretty much all of the major cosmic players into one big pot together. Black Bolt leads the Inhumans on a quest to claim their spot at the head of the Kree, but in so doing they pique the interest of intergalatic madman Vulcan. With the Starjammers and the Guardians of the Galaxy attempting to stop a massive war before it consumes the galaxy, it seems as if only one king will be left standing. This is a frankly terrific title and a great collection that includes the main event run of War of Kings as well as the prologue and epilogue tie ins.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It contains the majority of what you need to know. There are moments in the book when Nova & the Guardians appear that seem odd without having read their respective books but that does not take away from the overall story.

The first third of the book contains the main series along with the Secret Invasion prelude. The art & writing throughout the series is brilliant. The art particularly comes into it's own in the final confrontations. The story is mainly seen through the point of view of Gladiator & Crystal. There are some big surprises particularly the death of a cosmic mainstay. The ending also leads in to the next possible series.

The second third deals with Darkhawk and I must admit I didn't know much about this character going in but now I'm very interested in seeing where his character goes next. Once again the art is brilliant and the reinvention of the character & creating a new history for him is very intriguing. The main gripe I have is the ending with this contradicts the ending of the main series (or it could be the other way round).

The final third is a collection of stories. The issue about Skaar is obviously trying to connect that world to the main Marvel cosmos. The Gladiator & Lilandra issues are the most enjoyable of the Warriors four short stories and maybe it's fitting that the lost scene of the hardcover should belong to Lilandra.

Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning - along with a myriad of top-shelf talent - have taken the Space-Faring characters of Marvel Comics and given them a much needed infusion of all of the drama, intrigue, and all-out action they've been needing. Annihilation, Annihilation: Conquest, and now War of Kings. Each event series not only builds on the ones that came before... They actually get better!

Just as an example, the creative team - along with a lot of help from Keith Giffen - have taken Rocket Raccoon, who was basically a one-note joke / Z-List Character... And they've completely molded him into one of the most entertaining characters published by anyone, in any format!

Now, onto the Meat & Potatoes:

Please Note: This review is about the hardcover that collects the War of Kings storyline. I'm not focusing on the individual stories.

I would've given this book 5/5 stars, but Marvel hasn't done a second printing yet, and this book was about 3-4x as expensive as it should be. That being said, the content of the book is excellent to the point of being exhaustive. The prologue books, and the direct spin-offs are entertaining, but the main story is where the good stuff is. As usual, the artistic talent working in Marvel's space-operas are absolutely second-to-none. (Paul Pelletier in particular is flat-out fantastic.)

Personally? I read the prologue stories, the main story, and a couple of the one shots. I stopped reading after that because I'm married now, and I don't have the time to care about an entire issue - if not a whole mini - that is focused on the tertiary characters in the Space-Setting... It's just not important to me.
That being said, if you can find this book for cheap: BUY IT! You will have difficulty finding all of the single issues, which is why
this hardcover rocks: it's got absolutely everything... And there's a Raccoon that likes heavy artillery and who's best friend is a tree (No, I'm serious. It's really, really fun!)

My suggestion? Follow these books. I'm sure there's more to come!

I'd been away from the Marvel Universe for a while, but seeing the Guardians of the Galaxy movie inspired me to have a look at Abnett and Lanning's run with the characters, and that in turn made me curious about what the Inhumans had been up to when they were offscreen in that series. (It can be devious how Marvel ropes you in with its crossovers sometimes) I ended up having a good time with this series, which for all of its epic scope manages to stay grounded in its characters. Ronan the Accuser had a surprisingly deep and sympathetic arc in this, though the action centers mostly around Crystal and Gladiator. Most of all, War of Kings made me want to go deeper down the rabbit hole of these characters' histories, and the bios for some of them at the back of this book confirm that that's a deep dive indeed...
