    Comics: The Gathering

    Al Ewings grasp of the characters is second to none, this run is as important to the lore as anything previously published. It’s impossible to heap enough praise on the issue, or the larger series. Each issue stands out from the rows of comics because of the second to none storytelling contained within. This is fast becoming one of the best runs on Guardians, and in time will rightly be remembered as a legendary epic. This is shaping up to be the definitive take on the Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Al Ewing continues to weave an interesting and fun story with Guardians of The Galaxy. The build-up to Nova and Magneto’s clash was well written and nicely executed. But it is the conversation they have with each other after the fight that makes for fun reading.

    Overall. This is developing nicely. I look forward to the next issue.

    Guardians is an excellent comic that manages to keep several plot threads afloat while maintaining a tight focus on its characters. This issue is not its best, but even an average Guardians issue is one other series would strive to match.

    I’m not sure I remember the last time Al Ewing played it safe. The Marvel mainstay goes above and beyond with each script he pushes out, and Guardians of the Galaxy #15 is a perfect example of that. Ewing is always scheming for the next big thing and here, that means a plot that transcends a single title. He manages to balance the ensemble of not only this Guardians of the Galaxy comic, but that of his S.W.O.R.D. title as well and manages to have them sing in harmony. This issue is packed to the brim with characters and not all of them get their time to shine, but the spotlight is placed on the spots it needs to be. You already know Juan Frigeri’s the perfect Guardians artist, and his line art is more exceptional than ever here. This story is getting real big, real fast and combined with one hell of a cliffhanger, it’s hard to make an argument against reading this book.

    There’s a lesson in this book, but I’ll leave it up to you to figure out what it is. It might be “don’t judge a book by its cover” or “fighting doesn’t solve anything.” I really think everybody’s gonna take away something different, but what we’ll all take away from this issue is one incredible set-up. Author Al Ewing tells a compelling story of good vs. bad and throws in a lot of great character stuff with some of the Guardians that really haven’t been spotlighted in a while. If doing so he informs the reader of where everybody stands, which is VERY important, but we don’t know that until the last page. There’s a really great showdown this issue between one of my favorite characters ever and someone else (no spoilers here), it’s pretty cool but I was surprised by the way it ended and bot in a bad way. While it might seem that this book has kind of been wandering the last few issues with no clear endgame, by the end of this issue you’ll know very well just what the Guardians are headed into and why you should’ve really savored the last few issues. A lot of things start to make sense and Ewing lays everything out on the table. Ewing is, of course, master of the last-page reveal and this issue turns that up to eleven and makes this issue the launching point for an event that will bring some characters in the Marvel Universe together fighting a common enemy. (…) Juan Frigera has been really solid over the last few issues and this is no exception. This issue features a pretty big fight that’s very well done and you don’t even realize until it’s almost over that these two people are pretty much standing still!! How awesome is that? Frigera has a lot to do this issue, but it doesn’t show. From the first page to the last, each page looks like it took two days to finish. Make sure you take your time with this issue and soak it all in.

    This issue sets up The Last Annihilation and acts as an epilogue to the events of the Hellfire Gala. However it stands alone, as Ewing takes the time to do some great character progression complimented with exciting action. The art gets better by the issue too, truly making this a series to watch.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Guardians of the Galaxy #15 splits its time between Earth and the mysterious state of Ego from the previous issue. Unfortunately, the comic spends a little too much time making a fool out of Nova and attempts to convey a message about things being more complex nowadays for both Earth and the wider Marvel Universe. Things ramp back up by the end with a cool reveal that’s sure to get the series back into straightforward superhero action the next issue.
