Another new entry into the Marvel Now univerise is Guardians Of The Galaxy. Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Steve McNiven and inker John Dell. Rumors of a Guardians Of The Galaxy movie coming out in 2014 Marvel has decided to relaunch a Guardians comic. Issue 0.1 is the back story of the leader of the group, Peter Quill. Peter is the son of Spartax royalty and being royalty he becomes a target of his fathers enemy the Badoon. The splash page of this book looks like the opening credits of a sci-fi movie. After that the book is just a filler until the regular issues start to roll out. In some ways it reminds me of those filler episodes of TV shows that have those” remember what happen in early episodes” filler. Now I am not saying the book is bad, not at all. The story is interesting and the art work by Steve NcNiven is great. It was a good quick read before bed. But if you are looking at books to read and are not collecting then I say pass on this book. If your a collector and want to have the full set then by all means pick it this book up.
So all in all the book was enjoyable and fun to read. But I say wait until issue #1 to start.
Remember comics are meant to be enjoyed not destroyed.
