    Overall. A really fun issue, which ends with a nice little reunion and one hell of a cliffhanger to keep us in suspense until 2021. Read Full Review

    Readers, I went from not being overly excited to even reading the issue this week to being exceptionally impressed by how much I loved it. Sure, I wanted to know what happened to Star-Lord. But, this issue was just fun, fast, and loose while also exuding its own unique rhythm and charm. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Chase Magnett Dec 9, 2020

    With any piece of profitable superhero IP it's always a question of when they'll come back, not if, so the trick becomes making that inevitable return impactful or interesting. Guardians of the Galaxy #9 certainly accomplishes this none too easy task in an issue that sketches a new culture in the Marvel cosmos while telling a story with neat formalistic elements that make it one of the most engaging issues of this already excellent relaunch.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Dec 9, 2020

    Long time fans of Marvels cosmic tales will no doubt lap this up as they have the rest of Ewing’s run on Guardians. Not the strongest tale in the series so far it feels like important setup for future storylines, and an important part of Star Lords tale. The art and colours continue to be absolutely stunning. Cabal and Blee look set to be amongst the best artists on an ongoing Guardians series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 1, 1970

    Star-Lord's whereabouts have been revealed, and his return to the Guardians promises more complications. Add in a really good art job and it's an interesting issue, even if it is a bit of a head-scratcher in places. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Dec 9, 2020

    Overall, Guardians Of The Galaxy #9is a gorgeous issue. The artwork and colorwork are stunning and really lend to depictions of worlds and people that you can't help but want to learn more about. However, the pacing is a bit quick which is likely a result of packing in over a hundred years into 20 pages. Read Full Review
