Whilst I’m still kind of perturbed that Bendis hasn’t given us an explanation as to exactly how Star-Lord isn’t dead and the Guardians are back together, this was still a very good comic, and I’m very glad to have the GotG back together again and being bad-asses. Even Rocket Raccoon kicked ass here, whether he was shooting Badoons in the face or asking for Pizza, he was refreshingly played straight here, not too jokey. I also liked the explanation given from the Guardians about how Earth is now off-limits for aliens due to constant meddling, holding us back and making us dangerous. Of course it couldn’t last and Thanos found a way around it. It’s going to be fun to see these two teams join forces and take down the big purple douchebag. The scene with Hulk and Cap questioning the General was good stuff, and I guess I should have seen it coming that the Cosmic Cube would be involved in this story, as this book is so indebted to the Avengers movie. I’m actually surprised it hasn’t been renamed to ‘The Tesseract’. The Hawkeye/Black Widow stuff that takes up the cover is a little odd, Bendis is putting quite a bit of energy over in New Avengers to setting up a Hawkeye/Spider-Woman romance, so what’s he playing at here? At least they mentioned that he had a girlfriend. And where’s Mockingbird in all this? Clint Barton, you slut. Hopefully this is what Fraction’s solo series will be about, not crime-fighting, just trying to make sense of his love life.

Thanos and Star Lord have both returned from the Cancerverse (which collapsed around them), Drax has mysteriously returned from the dead, there is no Groot, and Bendis provides absolutely no explanation whatsoever. I am really regretting my decision to start reading this series. :smt102

Any hints of a spaceknights appearance (I have it but am behind on issues)? Just wondering since they solicited the collection of spaceknights mini from a little ago in the most recent marvel solicitations...
