Guardians of the Galaxy #10

In an attempt to bury the hatchet of the first encounter of trying to kill each other, Gamora and Angela do some warrior-woman bonding by attempting to free the slaves of the planet Moord from the Brotherhood of the Badoon and, if possible, learn what has become of Thanos following his failure to destroy the Earth. As neither is much of a tactician their plan mainly consists of jumping directly into the fray and killing lots, and lots, of Badoon.

For those looking for a fun action-packed issue featuring the team's two female heavy hitters this is the issue for you. Although this gives the pair time to (brutally) form a new friendship, it also means that the rest of the team is largely absent. In fact Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon each only earn short cameos.

The issues also sets up a reason to tie the series into Marvel's new Inhumanity event (something I'm not excited for) while also suggesting that the Badoon may have had dealings with Angela's people in the past. Worth a look.
