All-New Guardians of the Galaxy (#1-5) by Gerry Duggan

All-New Guardians of the Galaxy (#1-5) by Gerry Duggan, Aaron Kuder (Illustrator)
Synopsis (via Goodreads): A NEW ERA OF COSMIC ADVENTURE BEGINS HERE! The Guardians of the Galaxy have taken off into space once more, on their biggest and weirdest misadventures yet! Kicking things off with the biggest heist they've ever tried, we join Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon and company as they blast their way through the galaxy, the peacekeepers of the Nova Corps hot on their tails.

This is one of the first comics we picked up from our Local Comic Shop (LCS). We thought our son might like having it read to him, but he seemed disinterested. Totally not his fault, though. It would be hard for a three-year old (almost four) to follow. However, my husband and I really enjoy it! The movies are good, but you get so much more from a reoccurring comic. There's a lot of history and depth to the different characters.

Before reading this comic, I didn't know much about The Guardians of the Galaxy outside of what I had seen in the movies. I am slowly learning new things about each of them and it's fascinating! Did you know Drax is a pacifist now (or at least trying to be)? Gamora has been angry-killing her foes and seems to know something no one else does (her dreams have been wickedly weird). Rocket's history has always been a mystery to me. I know they touch on the subject during the movies, but what the hell happened to him and why? Star-Lord is as zany and obnoxious as ever (Chris Pratt was absolutely perfect for this). Groot is a tiny little thing that isn't behaving the way he should, and now everyone is starting to worry. We see what is happening, and I don't think anything good is going to come of it.

Did I forget anyone? Oh! There's a new-ish member to the team, but I'm not entirely sure what their role is going to be. Their problems seem to follow them even through time and space.

If you enjoyed the movies, I really think you'll like the comic. If you haven't seen the movies, still try the comic, haha. It's a great one to begin with, or even to add to your current collection.

    1. Yes! It's really great! I've enjoyed the All-New version. (There have been others in the past, and some solo comics, but I haven't read those.)

  3. GNs and books are always better than the movies. And these movies are great so that’s saying something.

    1. I love the movies! Drax was surprisingly hilarious in the second one. Do you know if there is going to be a third?

    1. A lot has changed with the All-New, and I believe it only has a few more issues before it ends, too. Comics are always stopping and starting again. New stories to tell! New perspectives!

  5. I haven't really looked at comics. I do think that I could enjoy them if I gave them a try. Glad you found one that you and your husband both enjoy.

    1. We read a lot of the same comics! Just like books, there are a lot of different comics to choose from. I'm sure you could find something that you liked!
