    Guardians of the Galaxy #27 is a rock solid comic featuring some great character work and astounding artwork. The wait until after Secret Wars will be hard, but I'm looking forward to what Bendis and Schiti have in store for my favourite misfits in the new Marvel U. Read Full Review

    This is a great issue for jumping back in on what the Guardians of the Galaxy are up to, and while it looks like next issue will launch right into Secret Wars, this is a great stopping point that will hopefully be picked up after the fact. Theres some confusion and a few panels that dont look quite right, but those are easily eclipsed by the quality of dialog and characters and the self-contained, interesting narrative that sets up plenty for future issues.

    Guardians of the Galaxy #27 may not be the best issue in this overall magnificent series, but it's certainly not the worst, being a fabulous turn around for it's finale. Having an exciting display of action, that practically flies off the page, it's hard not to fall in love with these characters all over again. And though there may be a suddenness that frustrated me, it is a silver lining in a series that has been lacking as of late. Read Full Review

    The story in this issue could have used more space to develop. This feels less like a typical one-in-done story and more like an arc that had to be condensed in time for Secret Wars. Read Full Review

    Yet Another Media Site - Kevin Finnigan May 22, 2015

    Valerio Schiti's artwork somewhat makes up for the lack of story in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #27. The big Chitauri battle gives him lots to work with, and hits the scope that Bendis is going for. Gamora is powerful as all hell with Schiti, and he really captures the epic nature of her new power set post "Black Vortex." His hyper expressive Rocket and Groot have become the standard I hold others at Marvel too when penciling these characters. If GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY comes back post-SECRET WARS, I'd like to see Schiti come back on the title. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little May 25, 2015

    Overall, though there were many great ideas tossed at this iteration of "Guardians," very little seemed to stick. Somehow, the series felt like it took too long to accomplish very little, even in the issues that had the task of getting in the bigger beats of any story. Completionists will want to pick up this issue but, with the soft "Secret Wars" reset button being hit soon, there's little in these pages for anyone else to grasp onto. Read Full Review
