    Yondu guest-stars in the denouement of Solo's pointless freelance SHIELD adventure. This is a comic imbued with plenty of talent but it's relentlessly failed to forge a personal connection. The art is fairly brilliant, the story is compelling if a bit over-stretched (these five issues could be done as two busy issues in a less-decompressed title), and Solo's character has plenty of potential. The creators should have painted a more compelling picture of Solo instead of adding needless complexity to his adversaries and detouring into SHIELD office politics. Phone calls with his girlfriend talking about his motivations are a shabby substitute for actually illustrating what drives Solo.
