    But Why Tho?

    Guardians of the Galaxy #2 continues to set a new tone for the group. There are many moments of excitement and ridiculous fun, especially when the fight scene starts. But it is clear that the events that happened before this run started have scarred some of the characters and left them troubled. The Western influence on the series remains whilst being adventurous with alien designs and settings. Ranging from tense standoffs to oddly serene periods of reflection, this is a cosmic book that retains an atmosphere.

    Downtrodden superheroes with a sci-fi western flavoring is the perfect space for the ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ to call home, even if the heroes are near their breaking point. Plenty of bright character moments with rougher elements coming into play through the visuals & overall story make this second entry of the series pretty solid.

    Guardians of the Galaxy #2 has a lot more to do and say than the first issue, making it a potentially stronger hook for those teetering after a good, albeit thin, first issue. Without the need for the setup, the writing duo has the ability to enrich and flesh out the team, giving them a few more shades of required depth under this creative team.

    This bold new status quo for the Guardians continue to unfold with a lot of charm. While Guardians of the Galaxy #2 might not be as polished and straightforward as its precedessor, it still provides a hearty dose of the Guardians’ heart and humor, as the team breaks up into smaller groups to navigate the newest threat. I will gladly read a hundred or so issues of what Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing, Kev Walker, and company have in store for this seres, and this issue proves why.

    This is quite different to the movie storyline which seems to be its own thing again. Groot has now become a world-destroying threat and Rocket Racoon is nowhere to be found. Everyone else seems pretty much the same at this point.

    I liked that Peter Quill was supposedly the rational one in this story but the other members of the crew had a plan-B they had ready to go if things did not work out.

    I recommend this one if you are a fan of these characters or enjoyed the movies and want to read more of the same story.

    Peter receives a mysterious message from Spartax.

    Full of details, where those textures, science fiction and space chase sequences stand out.

    Guardians of the Galaxy #2 brings a new chapter in this space western style tale. Star Lord has the team try to play peacemakers but it blows up in their faces and action ensues. Unfortunately, the action is pretty short-lived and since there are no real stakes, it’s more of a waiting game while getting through all of the exposition from these new alien races introduced in this run. Ultimately, the comic is used to build up the danger of the impending “Grootfall” and hopefully the next issues follow through on it.

    Guardians of the Galaxy #2 is filled with excellent character-building and great art, but the plot is essentially a repeat of the first issue, and the big wow moment from #1 (Grootfall) gets no development at all.
