    COMICON - Scott Redmond May 19, 2023

    Downtrodden superheroes with a sci-fi western flavoring is the perfect space for the ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy' to call home, even if the heroes are near their breaking point. Plenty of bright character moments with rougher elements coming into play through the visuals & overall story make this second entry of the series pretty solid. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis May 17, 2023

    Guardians of the Galaxy #2has a lot more to do and say than the first issue, making it a potentially stronger hook for those teetering after a good, albeit thin, first issue. Without the need for the setup, the writing duo has the ability to enrich and flesh out the team, giving them a few more shades of required depth under this creative team. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler May 18, 2023

    Guardians of the Galaxy #2 brings a new chapter in this space western style tale. Star Lord has the team try to play peacemakers but it blows up in their faces and action ensues. Unfortunately, the action is pretty short-lived and since there are no real stakes, it's more of a waiting game while getting through all of the exposition from these new alien races introduced in this run. Ultimately, the comic is used to build up the danger of the impending “Grootfall” and hopefully the next issues follow through on it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 19, 2023

    Guardians of the Galaxy #2 is filled with excellent character-building and great art, but the plot is essentially a repeat of the first issue, and the big wow moment from #1 (Grootfall) gets no development at all. Read Full Review
