    Too often with major event/crossover stories like this one, you can reach the end of things and find that there werent actually any consequences to what happened in the story (see Age of Ultron for a good example). So, while Im not exactly sure how I feel about what happened in this issue, i am glad to see something happen that will clearly have a lasting effect (unless everything somehow gets reversed because; the power cosmic). i do still have a little trouble seeing how this story is going to continue over six more issues, but thats why Im not writing it.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Mar 25, 2015

    Guardians of the Galaxy #25 was a pretty good issue that was worth the extra money. Brian Michael Bendis is a wizard with so many of these characters that you would have to try pretty hard not to like this book. The pencils by Valerio Schiti and colors by Jason Keith just push this issue over the top. An excellent effort from everyone who was involved. Read Full Review

    Inconsistency aside, issue #25 sure is pretty. Valerio Schiti has been turning in some consistently great work with this event and this issue is no different, his pages dynamic and captivating. The attack and subsequent destruction of Hala proves an immediate highlight, as exemplified by an impressive four-page stretch showcasing the means and the aftermath. The artist's character work also continues to impress, his group scenes and focused interactions making great use of mannerism and expression. Issue #25 has its faults, but Schiti makes it better.

    "Guardians of the Galaxy" #25 takes full advantage of its double-sized format to deliver a fast-paced, high-stakes story that makes the most of "The Black Vortex." Read Full Review

    I was hoping for better from this series. It started out strong, but this issue doesn't fill me with optimism. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Bobby Angus Mar 26, 2015

    Guardians of the Galaxy #25 was just painful to read. The fact that Marvel put a $4.99 price tag on this book is just insulting to the comic fan. The sooner this series ends the better for fans, hopefully there will be a new writer with the series after secret wars. Schiti should receive a pass for this issue, it wasn't his best, but he can still draw with the best of them. Bendis should be commended for his early story lines in the series. However past issue 14 it is hard to walk into a comic store and justify this being apart of a pull list. This issue is a perfect example as to why this book is being skipped by so many fans.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 26, 2015

    On the one hand, Brian Michael Bendis does add in a lot more action than he usually does - we've got the Guardians and the X-Men fighting the Slaughter Lords and the Kree homeworld itself, but the stakes aren't set up, making literally world-shaking events lack any weight at all.
