    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt May 28, 2014

    Bendis has proven himself to be one of Marvel's master storytellers for years (or even decades), and his work on Guardians is no exception. This is comic that has the heart of Whedon's Firefly, but with its own flair, and I just recently became a big fan of the series, devouring the entire run over the course of a few days. All hype from the upcoming movie aside, the current comic has been solid through every issue, and while this one might be mainly set-up for the next arc to come, it still has that familiar punch. Don't miss out on what's proving to be a great book. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 30, 2014

    Guardians of the Galaxy #15 doesn't do anything more than set-up what's coming, but trust me this creative team does it in a way that easily earns a recommendation. Read Full Review

    It's not the series' best issue, but it services the ongoing story well enough to warrant a look. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie May 31, 2014

    My biggest complaint about this issue is that between its brevity (I swear it felt like it took about 5 minutes to read at most) and the all too obvious absence of Captain Marvel, the issue, at least to me, felt incomplete. I dont want to harp on the cover swerve and I certainly wouldnt say I felt ripped off by the issue, but Id be lying if I said that upon finishing the issue I didnt feel like Id somehow skipped over a few pages. This should have been a great issue, but that feeling that sent me running to the internet to see if Id missed something is a mark against it that just cant be ignored. Read Full Review

    Overall, this isue really kind of felt like it was dragging. I still dig the series but this was not its finest moment by a long shot. Thankfully the art made up for the writing on this one. Bendis has used this before to varying levels of success. Thankfully the setup they put in motion, at least in our escapees story, should push the next issue forward in a positive direction.

    Not a bad issue all in all, but I'm ready for this conflict to move to the next stage. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 3, 2014

    With so many separate glimpses, and less than 20 pages in which to work, Guardians of the Galaxy #15 doesn't leave much room to actually move the arc forward (although there's enough room for lots of ads). Quizzically we get another issue without Angela or any knowledge of her fate. And despite her appearance on the cover, Carol Danvers isn't part of the story here, although it seems she may have a large role to play in putting the team back together again. For fans.

    Outright Geekery - Gaumer Jun 3, 2014

    All in all this was a great issue for old readers and new readers alike. And with the upcoming movie about to hit, Marvel is doing a great job of giving those new readers a chance to jump on the bandwagon while still providing some entertaining story for longtime Guardians fans. This is a tough one to rate. The writing was great; the art was good; but the overall score takes a hit because of the cover debacle. It's a shame when promotion for a book actually hurts it.

    I'll just be blunt: as an individual issue of a serialized monthly series, this was just terrible. Doesn't feel like a satisfying chapter at all, just a sequence of barely connected scenes. Might work just fine as part of a collection, but definitely not as a single issue. Also: the cover advertises the appearance of a character that is nowhere to be seen. Very disappointing, even though Nick Bradshaw's artwork remains consistently great.
