I had never read the Korvac comics until Kym lent me this collection. This isn't to say I didn't know anything about it. I had read a What If? (remember that title?) dealing with the aftermath of Korvac having to snuff the universe in order not to be defeated (great strategy), and I liked that action-less issue significantly more than this collection. I suppose it isn't much different from any of the other Marvel comics coming out at that time, filled with high-school drama, florid romance, and pointless rivalry, but there wasn't much of Korvac. I expected an epic battle taking place throughout most of the issues, but nothing really happens until the end, when the all powerful Korvac attempts to take over the universe to make it a better place.
