    While it did feel a bit short in it's length and didn't move the main story forward all that much, it was still great to see the bond between these misfits grow, and I personally cannot wait to see what happens next to these characters. Read Full Review

    A fun, one-off sort of issue that Star-Lord fans shouldn't miss. Read Full Review

    Worth it just for the shot of Rocket slung up in a baby carrier. "I only ask" Don't let Quill see me like a baby." Read Full Review

    Excellent read and as a Star-Lord fan a long overdue solo quest. I do have a question though. How does Star-Lord acquire the second nega band? One minute he pinned to the floor. Next he's flying the raptor ship with them both on. Did I miss something?

    All-New Guardians of the Galaxy is becoming one of the more consistant issue-to-issue comics published by Marvel each month. Duggan seems a perfect fit for this group of characters and the groundwork he's built in the initial story arc is beginning to ramp up. While this issue wasn't perfect, issue #6 was a great ride and I look forward to reading what's next. Especially with the tease on the final page.

    I absolutely loved the fact that Duggan and To are having a lot of fun with the power bands in this issue. For those that did not read it, this issue has Peter fighting the leader of the Raptors to get the antidote for a poison that Rocket has been given. Talonar, the leader has one power band and Peter has another that were found in the Guardians ship on a dead astronaut. They both struggle to have control since the bands are usually meant to work together. There is a great mix of humor and action. The art is one of my favorites in the Marvel books with some great details and attempts at some unique visuals. Many of the series have hinted at the fact that many people are gathering artifacts of power for some unknown looming threat. This issue brings Guardians into the mix with the power bands as well as Gamora and Drax's interest in the Soul Gem. I am also impressed with the way Duggan is able to stay true to the comic personalities while giving the book the feel of the Guardians movies. While I don't think it is necessary to do so, I am sure it makes some who only know the team from that media more comfortable with the read.

    Oh wow, this book'll be cancelled with this quality of tale. Sure, the comraderie of the team was the crux of the story and they got their happy ending -- but the pace and presentation of story details, and lack thereof, was so frustratingly lacking. The whole Infinity Stone Quest was interrupted again and the exposition of Groot's subplot was unclear.
