Guardians Of The Galaxy #2 (Murdered you! Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Apr 26, 2013 11:50 am

If I was one of those comics fans who got offended at the drop of a hat, I would be absolutely furious at this comic. HOW DARE BENDIS INSULT CAPTAIN BRITAIN LIKE THIS? IT’S BRIT-PHOBIC! Or something like that. But I’m not a dick, so I just laughed at Iron Man being his usual cocky asshole self and got on with my life. See how easy it is?

This was another strong issue of GotG from Bendis and McNiven (and Sara Pichelli too, who is just getting better and better), they really bring the action in this issue, it’s some of the best space-fighty stuff I’ve read in a while. It’s both fantastical and real at the same time.

This issue is divided into two, the first being the aforementioned awesome action-movie fight scene, and the second being a flashback to J’Son of Spartax (Star-Lord’s dad) gathering a bunch of other Cosmic King-types like Gladiator and Annihilus and the Supreme Intelligence and trying to convince them to take out Earth. This was a very good scene, as J’Son (and Spartax) deftly lays out years of Marvel continuity and explains in a way that makes sense why little old Earth is such a big threat.

I think my favourite thing about this issue is how bad-ass Bendis has made Rocket Raccoon, I always liked him before under DnA’s pen, but here, he’s a hardened killer, the repetition of ‘murdered you’ was cool as heck. It’s clear that Bendis sees Rocket as the ‘Wolverine’ of this team, and now Drax like you might expect. I’m still not sure even this take on the character will work in a movie, but hey, it’s awesome in the comics and that’s what’s most important.

I loved that he made fun of Captain Brit. He really is a loser of a character. Made me laugh. This is nowhere near as good as DnA's GoG book but its pretty damn fun.

Exactly.

UJ has no powers and could beat CB.

Wished that McNiven could draw faster...

i gotta agree with GOSD and Avengingtitan, Captain Britian is kind of boring, but his supporting cast is interesting..
