    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon May 4, 2017

    Duggan writes some really big, silly stuff into his script and Kuder doesn't shy away from it at all, proving that they're just the creative team to bring out the best in this ragtag group of intergalactic flarknards. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Logan Dalton May 5, 2017

    All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #1 is kind of funny, kind of dark, and opens a whole of bag of mysteries about these characters that we've come to love in comics and movies. Also, artist Aaron Kuder makes the transition from lantern jawed superhero to "hazy cosmic jive" (Featuring talking raccoons and mechas) with style, grace, and a funky new inking style.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 3, 2017

    Marvel's relaunched Guardians comic isn't quite as different as its title would have you believe. In fact, it pushes the franchise in an even more movie-inspired direction. But it does offer plenty of fun featuring Star-Lord and the gang., as well as a terrific sense of visual style. For now, that's enough. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Huck Talwar May 10, 2017

    This issue keeps the Guardians in a movie-focused light, but offers a new and exciting storyline for everyone to enjoy. While things are pretty typical for the group as a whole, there are small aspects of the story that indicate something bigger is going on than we readers know about. It'll be interesting to see where this series goes, so keep reading! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies May 5, 2017

    An interesting choice by Marvel is that All-New Guardians of the Galaxy is going to be a twice-monthly series, so it remains to be seen how the different artists will shake up the tone and feel of the book going forward .For now, whilst it doesnt exactly bring anything new to the table that readers havent encountered before, the issuesuccessfully providesplenty of fun, engaging action that makesthe most out of the great character dynamics, setting up a larger mystery to come.

    The Beat - A.J. Frost May 3, 2017

    Here's the good news: The Guardians are in good hands. While the full extent of the franchise stewardship from the Duggan and Kuder is yet to be fully realized, I have no worries. While there may be a kink or two getting the plot into gear, a clunky line of dialogue here and there in this first issue, that's to be expected. But the last panels" something is definitely afoot (no spoilers here!). Looks like we're starting our summer comics reading off with a real winner. Read Full Review

    The Source by SuperHeroStuff - Ethan Supovitz May 5, 2017

    So, the question is this: does it want to be its own thing or does it want to be the movie? Unfortunately, it's too early to tell, but I think this series has a lot of room to grow. Read Full Review
