Guardians of the Galaxy #1

Putting off some heavy western vibes (maybe for this issue we should refer to them as the Guardians with No Name?), the Guardians of the Galaxy's new comic begins here with the team attempting to save the lives of those in a small town on a crappy little world on the far side of the galaxy. And what they are saving it from, it turns out, is their former friend... or whatever he has become.

Although I'm not exactly sure what happened to Groot, that information isn't needed to enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy #1 which works well as a reintroduction to the various characters on the team with big splash pages that is more about stylishly setting up who and where the team is now than just what they have gotten themselves into (which we'll no doubt learn soon enough). I can't believe we're already on the sixth reboot of the Guardians, but this one works better than some and works both as a standalone issue and a starting off point for a new story.

[Marvel, $4.99]
