    I wasn't a tremendous fan of the first issue of Legendary Star-Lord, enough that I largely overlooked the book from then on. Thank goodness Marvel was short on content last week, forcing me to give this book another look. It's funny, it's sweet, it's action-packed, and it's probably one of the most fun comics I read last week. It might have been the date from hell for Peter Quill, but this issue shows me that this creative team is a match made in heaven. Read Full Review

    Legendary Star-Lord is Marvel’s underdog series that deserves so much more love. No one reviews it, barely anyone talks about it and I’m guessing the sales aren’t excellent either. I want to help this book out because it’s so fun to read and it’s by far my favourite Guardians ongoing series. It isn’t very profound or complex but the simplicity works due to the character-focused issues presenting a clumsy and loveable hero. We get further developments for Peter here and while there are some clunky elements to the plot I still had a blast reading the issue and I’m sure you would to. Maybe if this book sells well-enough, we could get Sam Humphries on the Guardians’ main book, now that’s the dream. Please, give this book a chance and spread the word! Read Full Review

    After the success of the movie, Marvel continues to put a greater emphasis on the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise announcing a couple of new series and giving them a big event (Black Vortex) early next year. Legendary Star-Lord continues to ride the line between fun and action. Although this issue is heavy on the fun, it's still an important piece in Black Vortex, this series is laying the foundation for that event, but doing so in a way that doesn't feel heavy or dire. I'm excited for the upcoming event, and I'm having fun on the journey there. Read Full Review

    Kitty Pryde has proven to be a welcome addition despite her relatively brief appearances, but unfortunately Humphries' attempt to intermix her involvement with the current narrative doesn't quite pay off. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 8, 2014

    With "Legendary Star-Lord" #6, Humphries shows readers he has constructed a comic book that is reminiscent of the old "Star Wars" series from Marvel, when Han Solo had started off in his own direction and made his way through the galaxy, finding trouble spot after trouble spot, some of his own creation. Such is the case with Peter Quill, in a series that stands independent of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" series, but intersects with the Marvel Universe enough to be relevant. Read Full Review
