    This has been a brilliant conclusion to a great series, the final couple of pages really show how much the Yondu’s have influenced each other in their time together. Zac Thompson & Lonnie Nadler make a great team on writing, John McCrea’s art brings their story to life with some fantastic action. I recommend not only this issue but the whole series.

    Thanks to its fair share of twists and turn, this issue is pulled one too many ways to really stick the landing. Read Full Review

    If Marvel killed off Stan Lee & Arnold Drake's OG Yondu to try to tap some attempt at movie synergy. It is such a disappointment to have that failed and forced status quo change. The iconic character is wiped out in a poorly hyped mini. The art was quite bad. Who knows when Surfer appears chronologically? It's maddening given Norrin has a storyline in progress. And Young Yondu hardly grew to be likable or heroic by the end - not to mention barely synergetic to movie canon.

    The pros: The IS a significant status quo change. Skreet is revisited. A sliver of hope Marvel has a care for the long mourned ROM mythos. Curious M'Kraan connections established.

    I honestly like this ending for Yondu.

    Ravager Yondu slowly makes the turn toward rogue-ish heroism, and all it costs is 31st-century Yondu's life. Sigh. The final point of this miniseries seems pretty worthwhile, but the road that got us here was bumpy and not a lot of fun. The final character developments are good, though; where was this insight earlier?

    Yondu is finally wrapping up. Let's see how the final issue goes.

    The Good:
    I do like the character change Yondu went through.

    The Bad:
    Art isn't to my taste.

    Bit boring.

    It's not as bad as the other issues but it still lacks a solid punch.

    Super cliche and poorly written character development for Yondu. I did like the super wacky cosmic action in this series though. Marker and Thompson try way too hard to make this Yondu into MCU Yondu
