    STAR-LORD #5 comes at you with full on action and suspense, cementing itself as the best in the series with more in the tank. Read Full Review

    The art suits the story perfectly, pastel colours, thin lines, flat compositions for the most part all give the story a grounded feeling and the fantastic elements pop all the more for it. Read Full Review

    All this being said, Star-Lord is simply fun, even when the story is given some pretty strong emotional weight. This comic genuinely made me audibly sigh (in sadness, not because of how thirsty it made me), but I wouldn't want to spoil why. Read it yourself! Go on! You'll thank me for suggesting it, I swear.

    It does seem like this book is a little too preoccupied with ancillary characters like Old Man Logan (who's quickly becoming as overexposed as his predecessor was), but there's no denying that Logan's bond with Javelynn is a great deal of fun to read. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of good in this issue, it just feels like the creators bit off a bit more than they could chew in such a small time frame. Read Full Review

    Actually, no. I'm really wishing this series acts as a soft-launch for "Guardians of Galaxy," which follows the (mis)adventures of Star-Lord, Daredevil, Shocker, Black Cat, Old Man Logan and Abigail Brand as bouncers for a space-disco called Galaxy. Make mine Marvel" please. Read Full Review
