    The story Van Lente has written is a fun adventure worthy of the Guardians and the art is perfect for the irreverent team. Read Full Review

    If you're burnt out on Guardians of the Galaxy comics, this new mini-series probably won't do anything to help. This is a very traditional take on the franchise, one that could just as easily be an extension of the regular comics or movies as a prequel to the Telltale game. But between the fun tone, strong team dynamic and expressive art, it's at least a very well-executed Guardians story. Read Full Review

    Writer Fred Van Lente guarantees this is gonna be "the greatest comic book based on a video game based on a movie based on a comic book in Marvel history." I wish anything that happened in this issue was as clever as that sentence. Some half-hearted attempts to replicate the decision-making process of a point-and-click video game fail to add novelty to the cut-and-dried story. Salva Espin's art looks shockingly effort-free, and he distinguishes himself negatively by drawing the worst Rocket Raccoon I've ever seen in a professionally-illustrated comic. A few glimmers of genuine humor avert total trainwreck catastrophe, but this is a terribly inauspicious start to a series.
