Publisher Description.  In the recently released Guardians of the Galaxy #15, fans finally learned that the dark threat behind the upcoming cosmic crossover The Last Annihilation is none other than Dormammu, Lord of the Dark Dimension!  The dreaded Doctor Strange adversary has merged with Ego the Living Planet and plans to use his powerful magical abilities to conquer space, forcing the galaxy to unite like never before.  The saga will kick off on July 21st in Guardians of the Galaxy #16 where Dormammu’s endless army of Mindless Ones will put the new lineup of Guardians to the test.  The crossover will continue in Ewing’s space-based X-Men title S.W.O.R.D. #7.

This is what the new Guardians were built to do.  But will it be too much?  The war to end all wars begins.  And not everyone’s going to come home.  Check out the fully revealed cover of Guardians of the Galaxy #16 below along with never-before-seen artwork and a Last Annihilation checklist.  And be there for the start of the latest Marvel space epic when The Last Annihilation begins on July 21st!

The Last Annihilation will also spin out into a series of one-shots, each focusing on a different corner of the galaxy as Dormammu unleashes his evil across space.  Ewing will team up with artist Bob Quinn (Way of X) in Cable: Reloaded #1.  The Last Annihilation: Wakanda #1 will be by writer Evan Narcisse (Rise of the Black Panther) and artist Germán Peralta (King in Black: Black Panther).  And writer Anthony Oliveira (Lords of Empyre: Emperor Hulkling) and artist Jan Bazaldua (Star Wars, X-Force) will deliver another chapter in the saga of Marvel’s beloved power couple in The Last Annihilation: Wiccan & Hulkling #1.
