The is my first foray into the Marvel's second Secret War and its aftermath. The building blocks for a good book are all present here but it unfortunately goes downhill in its second half. The most appealing parts of the book are the strong family bond that's striving after tragedy. The Baikan's journey through this new world is a much better story without Novas, Thanos, Infinity Gems, etc. When those elements are introduced, the story gets bogged down and feels like its part of the Marvel event machine. Then you through in time travel and some Guardians and that's all she wrote. The vast majority of the time, adding super popular characters to a story subtract from it, not dd to it. Weaver's art was very well done especially his depiction of the family. Overall, its a tale of two halves and only ends up being average.
