The secrets these galactic Avengers discover will rattle Marvel readers for years to come! But while London deals with a brutal invasion by the Badoon, the fate of the Guardians may have already been decided millions of miles away! Why wait for the movie? It all starts here!
The Guardians of the Galaxy movies are some of my favourite Marvel movies. This is the first Guardians of the Galaxy graphic novel I’ve read, and I enjoyed it.
This story is a great intro to the Guardians. It starts with Star-Lord’s parents meeting. They had a different life than in the movie, but it still ended in his father leaving Earth. His father was not a nice person in this story, which is not surprising from the movies.
One change that I didn’t like was Groot! He is adorable in the movie, but he looks like a giant tree monster in this graphic novel. I guess that’s how he was originally drawn, but he is just so cute in the movie that it was a little scary to see this version of him.
I will definitely look for more Guardians of the Galaxy graphic novels! Have you read any? What did you think of them?
