4.5 stars

The problem with finding great comic books is that once you latch on to an interesting story/title, you feel compelled to dig up everything else you can find on it.
War of Kings is something I've been meaning to get to for a while, but now I'm going to have to bump it up to the top of my... ...more

Thanks to the trailer for the upcoming movie adaptation I was singing Ooga-Chaka Ooga-Ooga the entire time I was reading this.

The Guardians of the Galaxy had a falling out among themselves after learning that their leader Peter Quill (a/k/a Star-Lord) had used an underhanded tactic when recruitin... ...more

Well, another great GOTG book from DnA! The team is ruptured and leaderless, and the time/space continuum problem is still looking to happen. Lots of good fight scenes, as well as some Marvel lore I'm not familiar with, but DnA, once again, have a way of making the obscure/past references make se... ...more

Another cosmic extravaganza from Abnett & Lanning. These guys know what the hell they're doing, and seem to be having a ton of fun doing it. This book is considerably funnier than the first volume, with the writers appearing to have relaxed into the Guardians dynamic a little more. I particul... ...more

Surprisingly enjoyable. I say surprisingly, because I was expected a rehash of the Guardians of 20 years ago. Glad I was wrong. Smart writing and nice pencils make me a happy boy. Also, it has Groot, a sentient tree who likes punching people. Sometimes all you need in a comic book is to see a tal... ...more

This is a complicated, satisfying book with some mind-blowing art, intricate story-telling, and great characters. If like me, you're reading through Marvel Cosmic and have the context of everything that's going on since the reboot that was Annihilation, you'll enjoy the volume all the more. This... ...more

The first volume left me a little disappointed. This one is much better, and more of what I was expecting: cosmic super hero stories with a good sense of humour weaved into it. I probably enjoyed this volume a bit more because I knew the characters better, so I was connected to them more emotiona... ...more

Me encanta! ...more
By Alan (Oakland, CA) · ★★★☆☆ · January 30, 2010
These may not be Marvel's cosmic characters as we remember them, but Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning do a solid job of mixing space opera with super heroics. Frankly I could have done without the whole Dragon of the Moon part of the storyline. ...more
