    Guardians of the Galaxy #4 is full of blood-pumping action " quite frankly, it may be the best book in this budding run yet. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 19, 2019

    Geoff Shaw dominates with the art in this issue. Every panel and character looks amazing and the final battle between these two groups looks beautiful in both scope and scale. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Apr 17, 2019

    Through four issues, Guardians of the Galaxy has been a madcap ride that hopefully wont soon be over. This issue is a downright slugfest, one that also manages to seed a new mystery and continue developing characters. Go forth and read this damn book. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Apr 19, 2019

    Guardians has been a great new pick for me. With zero knowledge of the cosmic universe I am still getting a lot out of this book. While at times I feel in the dark, none of those moments actually harm my understanding of what is going on. With only four issues in, this series is great for new and old readers alike Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 17, 2019

    This issue is mainly about adjusting the Guardians roster and clarifying the battle lines for the conflict to come. Guardians #4 delivers a satisfying dose of battle itself, complete with consequences, but this is not a climactic turning point. Strong action art and fast, polished characterization provide a fulfilling sense of motion even if the plot is taking its sweet time to develop. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Apr 19, 2019

    While I want so much more from this book, Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw have some fun this issue before giving readers an awesome looking battle royale. This book still doesnt feel like a standalone Guardians book, but I will wait until after this first arc to get too mad about that. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 20, 2019

    The new issue features strong character work now that the story is coalescing, but the art is a tad problematic during a big, hectic fight scene. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Apr 24, 2019

    I'm gonna keep buying this series in the hopes it tightens it's focus, but as of now it's a little tough to follow at times. Read Full Review
