The Trial of Reed Richards. By rescuing Galactus from death, the universe penalizes Mr. Fantastic for condemning other planets to death. What will be the final verdict?

In what is surely one of the GREAT Galactus stories out there, Reed Richards is pit on trial for the death of the Skrull Home-World, or more precisely, helping bring Galactus back to life when the Titan was on his deathbed. Because Galactus went on to consume the Skrull Homeworld upon revival, they must decide if the blame should rest on Reed Richards’ shoulders!
