Starting with Empyre and following King in Black, we’ve entered a new Space Age in Marvel Cosmic, with writer Al Ewing as the head architect. Ewing has proven his cosmic bonafides across works like Ultimates
As the biggest and most highly praised Marvel Cosmic event of the 2000’s, Marvel’s Annihilation carries a heavy legacy, one that was referenced as recently as the small month-long crossover Annihilation: Scourge. Honestly, if it weren’t for Ewing’s well-earned reputation as one of the best creators at Marvel (bolstered especially by the hit Immortal Hulk), returning to the “Annihilation” branding would be highly skeptical. As it stands, though, there’s hope that Ewing and company will drive purpose and focus in their space age crossover, and hopefully mark an actual end to the reused “Annihilation” terminology.
Previously: King in Black

Not a direct Last Annihilation tie-in (the issue’s actually part of the X-Men’s Hellfire Gala), but Ewing’s Guardians and SWORD are increasingly interconnected, and self-referential. This will explain some references in Guardians #15 and presumably issues moving forward.
The Last Annihilation: Wakanda
Guardians of the Galaxy #18
