Hmm. I wanted more from this. I'm excited about the upcoming film, because it's Marvel and they reliably entertain me (unpopular opinion: I kinda enjoyed Fantastic Four, even after everyone I know dissed it? Might have helped I watched it on my computer at 2x speed). But I'd never heard of Guardians of the Galaxy before the marketing for the film started, and I don't know much about it.In a way, this does feel like it tries to be an introductory volume, with little bits talking about some of the characters' pasts and relationships, but mostly it feels fragmentary and weird. I think this is probably <I>because</I> I know so little about it. I felt like it was supposed to be a gateway drug, using Tony Stark as it does, but I didn't really get that involved with it. I wasn't sure how to contextualise it in terms of the other Marvel comics I read. Gotta admit, I would like to know what Peter Quill and Teddy Altman would have to say to each other, with some similar background behind them.I do like the cast, and it may well be that I'd appreciate it more if I wasn't totally new to it. I might look at it again after I've seen the film. Oh, and I appreciate the heck out of Freyja being the ruler of Asgard. She deserved more than the fridging she got in Thor 2.

Pretty fun and entertaining, for a superhero comic.
