CBR Review: Realm of Kings: Imperial Guard #5

I recently reviewed Realm of Kings: Imperial Guard #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The structure of the Marvel cosmic books right now is a smart one: two ongoings (Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy) that focus on specific characters, and rotating mini-series to develop the alien races and concepts that may get overlooked otherwise. That structure does make the mini-series seem less important and lacking in conclusiveness since their job is merely to shed light on side characters and enhance the main thrust of the line, like tie-in books during an event. Non-essential and somewhat inconsequential. That quality is what limits Imperial Guard #5 as it wraps up its story, but in a manner where small plot points are accomplished and the real story will continue elsewhere."
