    Overall. A really strong issue with solid dialogue and character development. The story moves on a fair bit and we even get a few nice references to other books in the Marvel universe. Read Full Review

    The plot combining cosmic and magic doesn't happen all too often but when it works, it works exceptionally well, especially right here in Guardians of the Galaxy #17. Read Full Review

    "Last Annihilation" has all the trappings of a great Marvel event. This issue somehow juggles over 12 characters like nothing, and though the first half is a slow crawl to the plan, once the plan is underway it's all-out action and fun. This issue is a key chapter as it sets up a turning point for the event you won't want to miss. Read Full Review

    The universe is in peril and that means great things for readers. The story is fun, the characters are sharp and the art gets better with every issue. Read Full Review

    Guardians of the Galaxy #17 continues to advance the story of The Last Annihilation and shows what Dr. Doom brings to the team. It's something only Doom could bring, but aside from Rich saying it's a bad idea to have him there, that's about it. No new, fun, or interesting character banter and dynamics between him and the others. The art and colors look great, and the comic provides answers behind the tactics of Dormammu's invasion which inform the true stakes of the crossover event. Read Full Review
