    The Latest Pull - Zack Myers Aug 8, 2014

    The only problem I had with this issue is Mister Knife. Though we only see him on the last page of the issue, he just doesn't seem so threatening, with a name like "Mister Knife". I know comics involving characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy always contain some humor, but they could have came up with a better name. Only time will tell to see if Mister Knife is as threatening as they say. Overall, this issue was a good read, and I plan on keeping up with the series. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Rob Thomas Aug 9, 2014

    There's not really much to dislike about this issue. The Sarlacc pit-with-the-serial-numbers-filed-off monster was a bit uninspired, though even it had a bit of a twist to it (which itself felt inspired a touch by Empire Strikes Back in a weird bit of cross-pollinated reference-lifting). Meanwhile, Humphries does a bit more to expand the cast of the Cosmic Marvel universe by tossing some new players into the mix, both in the form of Star-Lord's sister as well as a new, mysterious underworld player in Mister Knife. Overall, Legendary Star-Lord #2 actually elevated itself above the series' first issue, which is a rare feat in and of itself. With the main Guardians of the Galaxy book barely treading water, at least we have two good solo series to keep the quality level up for these characters. Read Full Review

    I'm enjoying this comic, but I can't say it's at the top of my reading list. It's fun, but the stories so far (both of them) have been mostly on a small scale - we expect bigger things from a movie star and a cosmic hero. Read Full Review

    As a whole though, Legendary Star-Lord is a joyous interstellar romp and absolutely worth adding to your pull list. Read Full Review

    ScienceFiction.com - Stuart Conover Aug 10, 2014

    Overall, the second issue of ‘Legendary Star-Lord' was a fun read and has potential to push the series over for a few more issues. That being said I much prefer Peter Quill in a group dynamic and with the next issue of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy' being the big reveal of what happened with Thanos, Richard Rider, and Star-Lord in the Cancerverse it is hard for me to get too excited about a stand alone title. I can't let that ruin this issue though so I'll end this on the following; if you can't get enough of the Legendary Star-Lord and want more of the humor and action found in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy' this is a series you should be making sure to grab!

    Fanboys Inc - Cody Mudge Aug 7, 2014

    Despite a story that relies on set pieces and clichs, Legendary Star-Lord #2 is nevertheless a charming, exciting and downright fun thrill-ride. This comic reads like the hilarious, special effects wonder that its intended to tie-in with. Humphries and Medina have proven to be a team that works well together and should flourish on the fringes of the Marvel universe where so many opportunities for creativity abound. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Aug 8, 2014

    Lack of substance and inconsistent execution plagues "Legendary Star-Lord" #2. It's not a bad comic, but there is little to distinguish it from the pack. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 11, 2014

    Disconnected from the rest of the Marvel Universe (or the Guardians own continuity) the opening two issues have provided some fun but they also showcase why Peter Quill works better with partners rather than in Solo (pun intended) missions. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
