Beware the return of Starhawk! How and why is this original Guardian of the Galaxy here in our reality, and what does his ominous arrival mean for our motley crew of freedom fighters?

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 10, 2008

    I love the characters and plot of this book, especially how DnA are drawing on so much past history with the Guardians and Adam Warlock. Add in some great art and lots of great action scenes and it's hard to pass up this new book. Read Full Review

    Admittedly I'm a sucker for ebullient takes on the superhero genre, but my admiration for this book goes beyond it merely meeting personal preferences. If given a chance, this book should have a fairly universal appeal because it does just about everything a good comic can do. It's witty, it's fun, and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite monthly titles from Marvel. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Mark J. Hayman Jul 8, 2008

    Incorporating Jim Starlin's Universal Church of Truth into the story creates a few problems, not least of which is, given their apparent power and scope of influence (over a trillion "faithful", according to Rocket), they should have long been one of Marvel's principal outer space antagonists, along with the Skrulls, the Shi'ar, and so forth. The idea of their Cardinals being able to not only utilize but accumulate and stockpile "prayer power" is one part clever, one part loopy, and one part insane-making. "Belief Batteries"? Really? So I take it that the Cardinals "keep going and going...". Rocket's observation that "Basically, that means they can do anything if they believe they can" only serves to reinforce my reticence. Abnett and Lanning might have reached a little too far with this one. On the other hand, the mysterious cocoon-like object in the final panel is sufficiently provocative to maintain my interest in the book. An alternate-reality Warlock? "Her"? The Magus?

    The Magus, anyone? Either way, it's nicely done, if not that revolutionary, and progresses the story well. Read Full Review
