I did, suddenly I found myself loving guys like Nova and Drax and caring about all this crazy cosmic stuff. Guardians of the galaxy is certainly a favorite book of mine. Like I said it really is some of the strongest stuff in the marvel u.
Me too, in fact, about 4 years ago I made a thread on Newsarama about how much Marvel's space titles sucked compared to DC's (who had Green Lantern and Adam Strange running at the time). Now, I read all of Marvel's cosmic books, because of Annihilation, and prefer them to Green Lantern. Giffen and DnA have really revamped that side of the MU, made it more 'realistic', more gritty and real, it's not old Battlestar, it's new Battlestar.
If Giffen can do the same thing with the Doom Patrol (who have been broken since Grant Morrison), we can expect good things. Hell, even his Magog series sounds decent, and I despise Kingdom Come.
