A WAR OF KINGS tie-in! The guns of the Kree and the Shi'Ar have thundered — and there will hell to pay! Star-Lord’s Guardians spring into desperate action in an attempt to stop the planet-shattering battle, but will either side listen? If they don’t, the walls of the galaxy will disintegrate! It’s more mind-blowing cosmic heroics from the book that made rave “if comics were movies, this would be the one people would be talking about all summer!” Rated T …$2.99

    Personally, I couldn't find a single thing wrong with this issue outside of maybe some stretching behind the reasons for getting involved in the event. It's just good old fashioned fun and I just hope the title continues with this return to form and puts those last few substandard issues behind us. Read Full Review

    Guardians of the Galaxy #13 was an entertaining read. I would recommend getting this issue even if you are not following War of Kings itself. Guardians of the Galaxy #13 should have broad appeal as it has a little bit of something for every kind of read. Whether you like action, drama, humor, plot heavy stories or character drive stories you should enjoy what DnA are doing on Guardians of the Galaxy. Definitely give Guardians of the Galaxy #13 a try. This title is worth the cover price. Read Full Review

    A solid issue and worthwhile tie-in. It's hard to create a comic that dances around the events of a major mini-series but still stands on it own. Read Full Review

    Now, I suppose there is an assumption being made that people who buy "War of Kings" were already buying the outer-space books off in their own corner of the Marvel Universe, like "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Nova," and the various "Annihilation" mini-series. If so, it's a faulty one; I picked up "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "War of Kings" because of all of the good words I'd heard about the previous events. While "War of Kings" has held my interest so far, I hate to say that "Guardians of the Galaxy" completely lost me as a reader. If I come across a chance to read the earlier issues I might give it another shot, but for now I think I'm best just sticking with the core "War of Kings" mini-series and calling it a day.
