A pretty great end for the first volume of Al Ewing’s Guardians of the Galaxy. He and Juan Cabal really make the story good for the most part. The exposition with the 616 Moondragon was a really nice touch and shows us how she feels about there being a perfect version of her in the same universe as her, but comes from a different one. We see how the rest of the guardians (both teams) are doing w more

Al Ewing is three-for-three in this new volume of Guardians of the Galaxy! This issue deals with the aftermath of the battle with Olympus and the death of Peter Quill. The beginning with the “I Am” dialogue was a bit weird, but you can feel the emotion in that scene with how Gamora and Drax react to Peter’s death, and Gamora is the most heartbroken from this. The team has become divided. Thi more

Al Ewing’s delivers once again with this issue, and Juan Cabal is a fantastic artist. Our heroes are a bit outnumbered and outgunned against the Olympians, but with a little help from an old friend, they finally escaped but at the cost of a great character.

This conclusion was a rushed, but wholesome ending for me. Terry Dodson’s art was a bit choppy in certain panels but it’s nothing that brings the book down completely. The battle between the X-Men and the Doom bots ends with a deus ex machina type that final blow, but overall, it’s not a bad ending.

This miniseries is off to a great start. Chip Zdarsky and Terry Dodson make a great team for this particular story.
