    And also that Galactus not going after Earth again is solely on his own word and accord, since obviously he doesn't care in the least what the various galactic empires have to say about it. That's why I said, 'He doesn't need the text' of any galactic empire edict; he wouldn't care about it, and stays away (or comes to help Franklin out) for his own reasons.
    Thanks for that clarification.

    I wonder if the Shi'Ar and Kree have ever repelled Galactus, and why are their Empires are left alone, while the Skrull Empire is attacked by Galactus? Just luck?
    Visited NY and DC and saw Spider-Man Turn off the Dark.

    Well, how far below Herald-level are regular Accusers? Other'n Ronan being a notch-and-a-half or so below Surfer I mean.

    If the Kree have enough beings that are at least within shouting distance of Ronan or Marvel running around, they might come off as a spiky-enough mouthful not to bother with.

    And the Imperial Guard could probably figure something out, being a cosmic analog of Earth superteams and often portrayed as being at least as competent/resourceful to my recollection. Although the one time I recall Galactus taking on the Shi'ar, Earth heroes stole the show.

    Or, alternatively, I could see either or both of those empires having some sort of arrangement, either with Galactus's heralds or amid the echelons of their government, wherein they accept occasional planet-eatings and just channel them away from the core worlds.

    Well, because his then herald Nova led him there specifically.

    Yep, just luck. There's never been any indication that either empire has ever thought they stood a chance against Galactus, even the Shi'ar with their Imperial Guard.

    It would have to be a matter of putting up beacons for the heralds or something like that... and the temptation to somehow draw the heralds to your rivals' inhabited worlds might be pretty strong.

    Calling it now - the 'Garden' is a mcguffin, and the REAL big bad crazy threat will be revealed at the end of issue 3 as a huge twist.

    Didn't Newsarama fall all over themselves with issue #1? I was surprised with this rather mediocre review for #2.

    There were lots of behind the scenes issues, and the line was never very successful. I think only half of the books lasted past a year. Although there were some cool concepts and stories, the execution was never quite there.

    A few years ago, Warren Ellis did a new take on the characters in a book called newuniversal. This book used the characters and concepts in a new more modern way. It was a pretty interesting book, but it didn't last too long either.
    If this leads to some of the DP7 coming back, I may end up jumping for joy.
    Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
