    A fantastic ending issue that feels big, important, and ends things very well. Read Full Review

    This issue truly marks the end of an era at Marvel, and Brian Bendis and his collaborators give the Guardians the farewell they deserve. This issue has the scope of a huge event crossover but keeps the focus squarely on the Guardians and their family dynamic. It's a gorgeous comic, and one that manages to be funny and heartfelt in equal measure. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Apr 14, 2017

    The ending of this issue, and the series(es) is lackluster, more whimper than bang, but Bendis does get a chance to highlight his contributions to the Guardians of the Galaxy brand Ben Grimm, Kitty Pryde, Angela, and Carol Danvers. Its nice to see the Guardians latched into the larger Marvel Universe. That said, I just dont see the need to come back to this segment of the Guardians history at this point, like I regularly go back to re-read the 2008 series from Abnett and Lanning. The team is, essentially, the same as they were when Bendis picked them up in 2012. They have a few more friends, and arent as confined to the stellar settings, but thats about it. Its nice to draw this to a close, but with the artists on hand, I almost think I would have preferred Bendis writing captions for a pin-up issue. Read Full Review
