Guardians 3000 #1

Continuing the back-up story from Guardians of the Galaxy #14, Marvel's original team of Guardians continue their adventures in the alternate future of the Marvel Universe where the Badoon are overruning the galaxy and leaving very little left alive in their wake.

Taking a page from Edge of Tomorrow (which coincidentally hits shelves this week on Blu-ray and DVD), the Guardians and their new charge find themselves reliving slight variations of the same day's events as the group attempt to warn their remaining supporters about a disruption to the timeline which Geena Drake is somehow the key to fixing.

Once the time loop is broken it will be interesting to see which versions of Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Martinex, Yondu, and Starhawk the comic leaves us with (I'm hoping for the starry-version of Starhawk). Although I'm not overjoyed with some of the heavy 'roid rage action scenes by Gerardo Sandoval, it's fun to see these characters back in action once more. Worth a look.
