    Though the previous series experienced a lot of ups and downs over the course of its life, this relaunch seems to be working on firmer ground. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 26, 2015

    Guardians of the Galaxy has a solid issue even if aspects of it makes me wary with where it's going to go. I really like the team dynamic and what it does and I'm amused by the situation that Quill has found himself in as he's just barely above the level of a puppet it seems with his position on Spartax. There's a lot of information brought out at the start here and it helps to set the stage well while also reminding of recent events and how it's impacting everything here. The characters are fun to watch and listen to and Schiti really has a great dynamic range here in presenting the action and other elements. It's smooth, fun and a very engaging read the first, second, and third time to get all the details. Read Full Review

    So far, the two issues are ok, and entertaining, but it's not quite as good as some of the classic runs we've seen. It's not bad, but there's just something missing. Read Full Review

    Guardians of the Galaxy #2 isn't a bad issue, but it is a frustrating one all the same. At this point, even casual readers can pick up on Brian Michael Bendis' narrative tics and structure down to the scene and Guardians of the Galaxy #2 is another example of his tendency to tell rather than show when it comes to new series. However while Bendis opts to draw things out, artists Valerio Schiti and Richard Isanove opt instead to just draw the hell out of things and deliver some much needed visual flair to the issue. While the Guardians' past may be haunting them, their future looks bright, even despite this second issue stumbling block. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 28, 2015

    Brian Michael Bendis, Valerio Schiti and Richard Isanove are a top flight creative team working with dynamic characters, but Guardians of the Galaxy #2 falls into the “pretty, but light on content” category of comics. I was entertained by this comic, but it was easily the fastest read of the week for me by a mile. There is a lot to love here from a visual perspective but the story as a whole suffers in light of all the huge splash pages. I have a hard time expressing dissatisfaction over artwork this amazing, but fewer double page splashes in the future could allow some more room for plot development. Read Full Review
