Third hardcover volume that compiles the second volume of the Estela Plataada collection, in which a large part of the efforts will focus on the figure of Galactus. Panini Comics opens the ban against the Devourer of Worlds including Parable, by Stan Lee and Moebius.
Galen de Taa
This is how Galactus was called before undergoing the transformation that made him one of the forces that balance the universe, before being the scourge of millions of civilizations, serving as a test of strength to those worlds that managed to defeat him through tricks or offering him a devoted servant as a herald. But that majesty, that raw, unstoppable power seems long gone. Galactus is no longer that threat that made you tremble, He is not the omnipotent God who overcomes everything and gets away with it. He needs help from those who understand what his position is in the cosmos, what his endless task is.
Norrin Radd, Nova, Reed and Susan Richards… are not a few allies when it comes to combating the indigestion that the immortal Ancient Ones have suffered, something that happened in the previous volume. Now they have become an infection within Galactus, something that threatens to end his life. And for this, in another universe, it will be necessary to find the six Gems of the Soul, yes, those that will be known as the Gems of Infinity. Well, this whole stage from Steve Englehart to the script served to position many elements that Jim Starlin would later use for The Gauntlet, including the figures of the Lord of Chaos and the Master of Order, as well as The Intermediary, Galen’s counterpart in that universe.
The turn of the Screw
Englehart uses elements taken from John Byrne, when he molds Susan as Malicia, and he will remain attached to the incarnations that at that time he also had in other areas of La Casa de las Ideas, such as that brief appearance of the current formation of The Fantastic 4 or the follow-up that he does of Mantis in his moments before becoming involved again with a formation of The Avengers, even if they are from the West Coast, both collections with his script at that time. He wasn’t going to let his fetishes fall into just anyone’s hands. And all adorned with the excellent drawings of Ron Lim in full creative turmoil.
Not without extra suffering, Galactus is going to get rid of indigestion and at the same time from The Intermediate, leading to a denouement that will bring together three of the heralds of the Eater of Worlds that will mean a direct stab to the heart of a Silver Wake that was beginning to feel a great attraction for Nova. Because love was one of the pillars of the collection, after resolving the relationship with Shalla-Bal and having flirted with Mantis, being so affected by what happened to the formerly known human Frankie Raye could be more than the silver surfer he could chew, in just twenty episodes since he managed to break the chains that tied him to planet Earth.
The moral and religious implication
And to finish off we have what we can consider extras of this edition, the first Annual that was related to the crossover of The Evolution War and the inclusion of Parábola, the work of Stan Lee and Jean “Moebius” Giraud. Although the special with The High Evolutionary rotates more about the right thing to do when it comes to doing things, with The Eternals taking a role closer to the villains of the story, the work of Lee and Moebius carries a brutal religious charge that we He talks about human stupidity, preaching alone in the desert and the sacrifice that the protagonist decides to make in order to save humanity from themselves.
There is no doubt that despite having better editions, such as the one that not long ago received the Great Marvel Treasures format, Parábola is always welcome to finish off the continuity and place it at the time it was published, especially since it is a important part of that moment, even if it is outside of continuity and takes place in an unindicated future. Therefore, we are facing some hectic episodes of the regular series of Estela Plataada at the time that he suffers again from his particular nemesis, that Galactus who is beyond good and evil but who can always become a threat to his particular interests. .
