    If youre reading Brian Michael Bendis GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, youre going to want to pick up this issue. If youre new to the series or are looking forward to the movie, this will give you a great idea what you need to know about everyone. Venom is joining the team and Nick Bradshaw does a great job illustrating him and the other members of the team. This lets us know why and how he comes on board and sets things up for the regular series. The story did feel short but we also get previews for Jim Starlins THANOS graphic novel and the upcoming SPIDER-VERSE. This is a pretty cool FREE comic. Read Full Review

    This makes me pretty interested about seeing how it is followed up. It wasn't on my regular list but job done! Read Full Review

    The preview pages for Starlin's graphic novel called Infinity Revelation is a smart move by Marvel by putting the attention on Thanos, who fits so well into the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe. The book is due out in August so the timing is right. The inclusion of the Spider-Man preview did have me questioning Marvel's decision to include it in this issue. There's little relation to the other two stories, and although the story will continue on in a series called Spider-verse, that won't be releasing until November. Marvel could have focused on their cosmic characters throughout the entire issue, but by spreading their focus too thin the overall package suffered. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker May 3, 2014

    This issue is a bit of a mixed bag. Bendis Guardians material is just as good as it always is. Its the other two stories that arent exactly exciting. Oh, well. At least it was free! Read Full Review

    While this is a glorified sampler, it does a decent job of introducing the GotG characters with a slice of Thanos.

    Just a recap of each character? Meh

    Can't argue with free! However if the objective was to get me excited for any of the 3 titles showcased: mission failure.
