    The newest chapter of Black Vortex is a bit of fun and puts one of the classic X-Men character into a new costume for the event, which is incredibly cool looking. The art and writing are fantastic for the issue, but where this issue of STAR-LORD drops the ball a bit is letting the readers know why these characters find the Black Vortex to be such a threat. Regardless, this is a fun issue and fans of the Kitty and Peter relationship are going to want to read this, as there seem to be some trouble in paradise here. Read Full Review

    As the Black Vortex moves along, it continues to get better. Sam Humphries has turned in the best of the event so far and has set the bar. The art by Medina and Curiel will also be tough to top as they really turned in a well drawn and colored book. Here's hoping the next issue will be as good as the Legendary Star-Lord.

    The Latest Pull - Gunner Lahaise Feb 20, 2015

    I was really excited for this crossover. It was shaping up to finally be one of quality that we deserved. This chapter is showing some classic Marvel mistakes, and makes me worry that, like many crossovers before, it starts strong but is too long and drawn out, and will lose steam before any payoff can be delivered. I am hopeful as there are some great reasons to keep reading. As much as this chapter was not as great as the previous two, I recommend giving this crossover a chance for a bit longer.

    If you want to immerse yourself in a hypothetical story of good X-Men and Guardians gone bad, this is a fun issue. However, thus far, the Black Vortexevent doesn't feel like it weighs consequentially on the X-Men or Guardians of the Galaxy. The battles between the heroes and the inverted feel more like the sparring of the Avengers vs. X-Men: Vs.miniseries. Read Full Review

    There's nothing new under the sun, especially when it comes to creative endeavors, but it's a little disappointing how similar "The Black Vortex" crossover is to another recent Marvel event - Avengers vs. X-Men. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Feb 19, 2015

    I don’t think the Black Vortex should be such a huge crossover. Though, Humphries writes some really fun interactions and creates an entertaining and chaotic tone there is too little material presented here to have any strong draw. The plot is extremely one-note and has barely budged since the first issue. I can already tell that this is another elongated event by Marvel. Too bad, one of my favourite books has to be part of it.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 19, 2015

    "Legendary Star-Lord" #9 is a necessary installment in "The Black Vortex" saga, but it doesn't do anything to preserve the integrity of the title, instead giving way to the crossover event. Peter Quill doesn't get much panel time in this comic book, but he does provide a nice gathering spot for the characters to check in with the readers as "The Black Vortex" continues to gather steam.

    Black Vortex is becoming slow and pointless, and Legendary Star-Lord #9 doesn't help its cause much. Read Full Review
