An aspirant to godhead burns himself out by using his world-shaping energy to destroy the swarm of space bugs. So Ronan fails to clear his rep but vows to warn the Kree Empire anyway. The strongest mini in the metaseries, Ronan feeds its drive & suspense into next month’s Annihilation series.

Tho’ far off, the interstellar war draws closer. The titular antihero, meanwhile, clashes w/ space amazons (mostly ’90s Marvelettes). Ronan is hardcore scifi: honor-driven outlaws on a backwater planet & a cosmic puppet-master w/ his ulterior agenda. Tho’ confusing, it’s rich in atmosphere.

The Kree strand of an intergalactic crossover. The protag—a blue-skinned Kirby heavy w/ a Thor-like gavel—has been exiled by his empire. It’s grand space opera, engaging & a bit confusing (races, empires, factions, all with weird names), but the Metal Hurlant-style art is gloriously detailed.
