Guardians of the Galaxy #1

If you are thinking, didn't Marvel just reboot this series less than a year ago? You are not mistaken. Marvel Comics relaunches the title once more with Peter Quill and Rocket Raccoon being pulled into the fray by Richard Rider who is seeking any heroes he can find to help stop the sudden appearance of of the Olympian Gods who are making a deadly swath across the galaxy.

While I'm not wild with the art from Juan Cabal, especially the look of Star-Lord (what's up with the slicked-back hair and skinny jumpsuit?), I will admit I do kinda dig Rocket in a suit. The choice of Peter to answer the call against Gamora's wishes, and without her help, also means the full roster isn't going to be on display (at least not at the beginning of the adventure).

The Olympians feel like a goofy idea to launch a new comic on, although they do allow for a pleasant surprise at the comic's end which could certainly spice things up in the issues to come. For fans.
