    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Oct 23, 2019

    The Guardians of the Galaxy, and their new title, is almost at an end. Thankfully, this comic has moved from strength to strength as each arc has been better than the last. Rocket Racoon's reintroduction into the series has been the biggest point of joy and sorrow and it is impossible not to want to see how this plays out. Read Full Review

    Cory Smith's art is fantastic. The art in this issue is stronger than a lot of the story and I love the look of this issue a lot. Read Full Review

    Though a bit of a slip from the book's normal high standards due to pacing issues,Guardians of the Galaxy #10 is still a more solid read than a vast majority of other books on the shelves. Pass this comic up at your own risk! Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Aaron Anderson Oct 16, 2019

    This is a fast-paced issue that at first glance was pretty good. I really have no problem with the art except Peter Quill's face. It always seemed a bit off. The story, on the other hand, has become obvious in nature. It is here solely to set up future storylines. Magus is thrown in as the Deus ex machina and is mainly trying to make a boring Thanos series relevant. Guardians the Galaxy is all about the team and we have hardly had any team or teamwork in this whole series. It feels like characters are not used as characters but for their powers only.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Oct 16, 2019

    Similar to many of this volume's past issues, Guardians #10 is long on strategic plot development and offers just a frustratingly brief dollop of character interaction. Some polished, top-shelf art works hard to make the action grand and the characters sympathetic. But even the strongest visuals couldn't fix the core problem that carries on through this issue's script: It's a story about things happening to Guardians characters rather than a story about the Guardians as a team.

    Finally, things start materializing in this issue, even though it might be in the most predictable of ways. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Oct 17, 2019

    Guardians of the Galaxy #10, despite being well written and drawn, just falls short of what it should be. Many of it's greatest and most exciting characters are sidelined in favor of the more marketable names, and it feels like a missed opportunity. Despite that, Cates does have a strong handle on Rocket and Peter's characters, and their voices carry the book. It's fun, but there's just not much lurking beneath the surface. With the end drawing ever closer, it's becoming clear that the team doesn't have much of a vision for Guardians of the Galaxy. Read Full Review
