    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Apr 22, 2010

    Thanos makes one hell of a comeback here, just in time for the series to take what could be its final bow. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning continue to amaze me with their awesome character work and superb plotting in this actionpacked thrill ride of an issue. Brad Walker keeps pace quite well with his strong art, especially in his chaotic layouts. I'm really hoping that this isn't the final issue of this series, but if it is, I'm glad to see it go out with a Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Apr 26, 2010

    Guardians of the Galaxy #25 was another spectacular issue. Throughout their run DnA have put on a clinic as they showed how to write a big team book. This issue had everything you want out of a story big villains, universe ending disasters, and a likable team of heroes ready to take on any threat. Hopefully once Thanos Imperative is over Guardians of the Galaxy does return because it would be a shame to lose this title which has easily been one of the best titles on the stands. If you are looking for a great team book with epic stories than pick up DnAs run on Guardians of the Galaxy. There are very few comics that are more fun with a great cast from the top down than this title. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 21, 2010

    Speaking of The Thanos Imperative, this issue doesn't overtly build towards that event as much as might be expected. Certainly Nova #36 was a more direct lead-in. But in the end I think Guardians fared better in its approach. Nova left too many loose threads dangling by the end, whereas Guardians #25 feels like a satisfying wrap-up to the past two years of storytelling. If the book really has to end here, I can be content with what Abnett and Lanning have delivered. As with Nova, I'm confident that we'll be seeing plenty more of this ragtag bunch of heroes and rascals throughout the year. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Apr 22, 2010

    After a few slowl-paced issues, it's nice to see Guardians getting back on track with the kind of epic space action that we have come to expect from this corner of the Marvel Universe. The “Thanos Imperative” is upon us, and I can't wait to see what happens next! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 23, 2010

    "Guardians of the Galaxy" has gone from a series that left me slightly bewildered to a favorite read each month, and I'm sad to see it going away for a while. Hopefully, after "The Thanos Imperative" there will still be some form of Guardians characters group running around the Marvel line. They're far too fun to let gather dust. If nothing else, they deserve a stronger send-off than this. Read Full Review
