"Annihilation Is Only the Beginning..." is found at the top of the image, with Annihilus crouching from a piece of space rock in the middle. The date for the event is November of this year.

In 2006, Marvel’s Annihilation event brought a war unlike anything seen before in the comics and introduced a crossover of epic proportions. Bringing with him a wave of warships from the Negative Zone, Annihilus unleashes devastation upon the positive-matter universe, causing millions of planets to be destroyed almost instantly.

The storyline also saw the release of four mini-series, featuring Nova, Super-Skrull, Ronan and the Heralds of Galactus, that fleshed out the adventures of the main characters at different points of the saga. Furthermore, a prologue detailing the early days of Annihilus’ invasion was also published.
