    …and after the epic shenanigans of the first part of this collection the second half comes as something of an anti-climax. The last few issues of Warlock’s own series are a disappointment, a one-part Pip story, a battle with an entity called the Star Thief in which Warlock ends up being a mere distraction and a hasty resolution to the Star Gem story. It’s followed by a non-Starlin one off with Spider-Man making an unlikely journey to the moon to team up with Warlock whose issues from his own ser …and after the epic shenanigans of the first part of this collection the second half comes as something of an anti-climax. The last few issues of Warlock’s own series are a disappointment, a one-part Pip story, a battle with an entity called the Star Thief in which Warlock ends up being a mere distraction and a hasty resolution to the Star Gem story. It’s followed by a non-Starlin one off with Spider-Man making an unlikely journey to the moon to team up with Warlock whose issues from his own series suddenly disappear for reasons of plot contrivance. And it all ends jammed into the pages of other comics – The Avengers is a fairly logical development but the subsequent involvement of Spider-Man and the Thing is contrived. Still, some touching moments appear along the way, such as Pip’s fate and the resolution of the story for both Warlock and Thanos. A reminder that these monthly comics worked better as month on month storylines where breathers were welcome rather than gathered together this way.

    Couldn't finish this. Not only was the author/artist's conception of space and FTL travel ludicrous, their own logic and setting is inconsistent between issues with the main character suddenly being thousands of light years from Earth instead of 450+ light years as previously stated after trying to reach Earth at faster than light speed while travelling in normal space. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for writers and artists to make up their own worlds/universes out of whole cloth and am quite happy Couldn't finish this.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for writers and artists to make up their own worlds/universes out of whole cloth and am quite happy with the settings used in books like Doctor Strange, for example. But if they are going to posit that the story occurs in real time and space, then they should at least try to represent it as such, and at the very least be consistent with the details of their own story. Sloppy work.

    An anthology of Warlock #12-15, Marvel team Up #55, The Avebgers Annula #7 and Marvel Two-in-One Annula #2. All written and drawn by Jim Starln except for the Marvel Team up which was written by Bill Mantlo and drawn by John Byrne. Although told ober an extended period of time and with the interlude not under the creative control of Jim Starlin the story of Warlock's battle with Thanos leading to Warlock's death is well told. I do wish Marvel would leave well enough alone and leave their character An anthology of Warlock #12-15, Marvel team Up #55, The Avebgers Annula #7 and Marvel Two-in-One Annula #2.

I do wish Marvel would leave well enough alone and leave their characters dead. It reduces the impact of the story when a character can be brought back at the whim of a new creator.

    This was a difficult one to call as the quality varies throughout each issue. After reading both parts I can honestly say that I'm not a massive Adam Warlock fan, I know that others will disagree but his story already seems heavily convoluted and confusing. This volume also seemed to reach a crescendo where it realized it needed to finish and was over in a couple of panels, a complete anticlimax. There are some enjoyable areas, I particularly enjoyed Spider-Man appearing and using his Spider-Sen This was a difficult one to call as the quality varies throughout each issue.

There are some enjoyable areas, I particularly enjoyed Spider-Man appearing and using his Spider-Sense as a receiver was a nice touch. All in all not my favourite title from the Marvel Graphic Novel Collection.

    Part 1 had engaging themes and an interesting unfolding story. Part 2 is disappointing different from the first because it feels a little like an after thought or maybe it's what you get from Starlin when he's on a shorter leash and needs to work with Marvel's money-spinners; The Avengers, The Thing and Spider-Man. Whatever the problem is with Part 2, the two parts together work well as a summary of the life of an unforgettably unique hero.

    Not a huge Warlock fan but these two in the collection I did enjoy. However I can't help but look at the character and think he is the bad guy. Odd. But if you want a more Sci-Fi comic book then look no further, for that genre it is epic, the art is on a grand scale and the story is pretty focused.
