    The next issue is sadly the last of this ongoing series. We're promised something exciting is to follow the finale, and what a finale it's shaping up to be. It'll be a real shame if Duggan, To, and Herring part ways in whatever's next for our favorite cosmic scoundrels. Read Full Review

    This is just a really fun issue that shows off what this title can and should be when it inevitably returns. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 26, 2017

    Guardians of the Galaxy #149 is a solid read. It starts wrapping up this series in an entertaining fashion, and the art continues to be great. While Gerry Duggans stint on the book hasnt exactly been the space-hopping epic one would expect given this titles history, it has been fun, and the interactions between the Guardians are often engaging (even if much of the book has been the team hating Star-Lord). I recommend this issue, and I look forward to what #150 will bring. Read Full Review

    Duggan totally had me going this issue. I very much enjoy this book and i will miss it.
    Marcus To has been a nice steady addition and i love his style. He makes it work well and conveys so much even with everyone wearing Nova Corps Helmets.

    This issue continues this entertaining series in a way that actually attempts to tie things up just in time for Infinity Countdown. Although, I don't expect that everything will be tied up completely and I hope this series continues after Infinity Countdown since Duggan has been killing it.

    It is hard not to take this issue in context. Duggan has said he was ending the Guardians so that he could focus on more characters for his Infinity Countdown story and you get the sense that he is trying to close up the plot points before that happens. This is the second to last issue before that moment so we get a quick close out on the Nova corruption that is done in a pretty fun way. The Flora Colossi invasion starts to tie up and starts to bring and end to Groot's regeneration problem. Even the Raptor's come into play by starting an attack on the Nova Corps. It is all done well, but the pacing does make it seem like they are in a hurry to get it all in. Exposition is placed over every moment. Every piece of art is meant to have forward momentum. There are some fun moments throughout. I especially loved seeing Rocket in a classic Nova uniform. Ant-Man fits well with the team and I hope that continues. I am also impressed how much body language and expression To can pull off. If you have been a fan of this take on the Guardians I am sure you will still enjoy this issue. If not this is just a quick road to the end and it will do very little for you. If you get a chance to pick up a trade of the full story I would highly recommend it.
