Read from June 08, 2012 to January 01, 2015 — I own a copy , read count: 2

This slim hardcover with an oversized page trim contains two stories as it was originally presented when it was released as four-issue miniseries. The first half presents a new team of cosmic-powered heavy hitters composed of the Silver Surfer, Gladiator, Ronan the Accuser, Beta Ray Bill and Quasar.

A formidable line-up on paper, but this was not the story I eagerly anticipated. Rather it was the story that comprised the second half of this volume: the further adventures of Rocket Raccoon and Groot.

Annihilators represented an initial attempt to establish an Avengers-type team in cosmic Marvel which emerged from the conclusion of DnA's (Abnett and Lanning) seminal Guardians of the Galaxy run. It's not as fondly remembered though.

The best part of this series was the Rockett Racoon and Groot story. This would have been better off if this story was collected separately because it had a great cover from Mignola. Still, a great addition to my shelf.
