    As Donny Cates last issue on Guardians of the Galaxy he really ends it all on a high. Great art, some incredible references back to earlier Cosmic series he’s done, this is going to be a guaranteed fan pleaser. Now all we need is an omnibus containing all of his cosmic work to date.

    Another commendable thing about this Guardians of the Galaxy was the solid art throughout, which began with Geoff Shaw and ends with Cory Smith. Replacing an artist in the middle of a run is always tricky you either find someone whose aesthetic is compatible with the person theyre replacing, or completely swerve off the path into a new style altogether. They took the former approach here, and Smith has been an exceedingly seamless transition from Shaw that you may not even notice the change if you werent paying close enough attention. The fact that he also brought with him a new inker (Victor Olazaba) and colorist (David Curiel) from the departing Shaw and Marte Gracia makes the changeover even more impressive. Read Full Review

    Too easy of an ending to be satisfying,Donny Cates and Cory Smith'sGuardians of the Galaxy tenure chooses to conclude in the breeziest manner possible, all the while shamelessly plugging the author's other recent works. Plain and simple, fans deserve better. Marvel, for their part, seem more interested in cranking this issue out just so they can get to next month's latest first issue for this title. If this is the sort of product readers can expect from an ever-increasingly corporate Marvel and its Mouse House overlords, dark days are indeed ahead for the former House of Ideas. Read Full Review
