    Andy Lanning and Ron Marz deliver a wonderfully fun, high-octane story that brings to mind the modern classic DnA stories that inspired the new movie. It even stars a nanite swarm Iron Man and baby Rocket Raccoons! Read Full Review

    This comic was a welcome surprise. A majority of the characters we know and love from the current Guardians run are there as well as a few welcome additions. I generally don't get my hopes up for anniversary events such as these, but this brought a lot to the table. I credit the creative staff for bringing a lot of energy to this story and making it far more than merely average. In fact, I'd love to see this team tackle future stories in the cosmic universe. Their take is fresh and fun, something sorely missing from the darker, serious tones of a lot of the books out there. Read Full Review

    Regardless of whether or not they've been following the rest of Marvel's 100th Anniversary Specials, Guardians of the Galaxy lovers will want to give this comic a look. It's entertaining and oddly engrossing for what is really just an alternate universe story at the end of the day. If we can't have more Dan Abnett/Andy Lanning Guardians comics, the Lanning/Marz team is a good substitute. Read Full Review

    "100th Anniversary Special: Guardians of the Galaxy" #1 is the most enjoyable, most accessible and most timely of the "100th Anniversary Special" series so far. This issue won't change the industry, but the on-sale racks are much better for having such a comic as this. With Guardians-mania hitting its apex, it might just be time to pull out all the stops and give this all-ages appropriate amalgamation of all things Guardians of the Galaxy a chance to carry on and build a legacy.
