    One thought on “Guardians of the Galaxy: New Guard, Volume 1: Emperor Quill”

    1. This was the 1st volume, right?Because there just wasn't a whole lot of setup for the new lineup on this team. Or, at least, not enough for me. I can see Kitty being in the mix, but what the hell was the ever-loving Thing doing floating around in space with these guys? Anybody else think his 'space helmet' looks like a giant ring pop?(view spoiler)[Amirite?! (hide spoiler)]The plot?Um, kinda bland. World ending fights, alien baddies, Gamora kicking ass, Peter and Rocket trading barbsSounds like [...]

    2. ”The entire galaxy is a mess. Warring empires and cosmic terrorists plague every corner. Someone has to rise above it all and fight for those who have no one to fight for them. Against their natures, a group of misanthropes and misfits came together to serve a higher cause. DRAX the DESTROYER, GAMORA, the most dangerous woman in the universe, ROCKET RACCOON, GROOT, and FLASH THOMPSON a/k/a VENOM all joined together under the leadership of PETER QUILL, STAR-LORD, to be the saviors of the spacew [...]

    3. Post-Secret Wars ennui got you down? Join the club.It’s entirely possible that my pessimistic perspective on the state of the Marvel Universe in the wake of the less-than-overwhelming (dare I say underwhelming) Secret Wars fiasco is a product of being a 37-year-old man whose been reading comics for nigh on 30 years (or maybe it’s just the product of being a 37-year-old man reading comics); I just can’t seem to get excited about anything coming out of the House That Stan Built (With a Ton o [...]

    4. Brian Bendis’ Guardians of the Galaxy might’ve been relaunched with a slightly different lineup - Kitty Pryde is wearing Star-Lord’s clothes and Ben Grimm aka The Thing is there for no reason - but it’s the same repetitive bullshit storylines as before. A powerful alien wants to destroy things - Guardians gotta punch them ‘til they stop! Then, immediately after they stop the powerful alien by out-punching them, another powerful alien appears that they have to stop with punching! I thin [...]

    5. The Guardians of the Galaxy head to Spartax to see their old friend and new Emperor of Spartax Peter Quill. Trouble has come for them thoughin the form of a Kree Accuser who blames the Guardians for the destruction of Hala.If that wasn't bad enough, the Guardians made a new enemy in Peter's absence that's coming to fight them on Spartax.First off I have to say it's absurd that Peter Quill allowed himself to be made the Emperor of Spartax. He clearly doesn't want the job, but he accepted it out o [...]

    6. There seems to be quite a bit of dislike on t'Interwebz for the new Guardians line-up. Could this be because most of these people only know the team from the movie and consider any deviation from the movie line-up to be 'wrong' somehow? Whatever the reason, you won't find me complaining about the addition of two of my all-time favourite comicbook characters (the Thing and Shadowcat) to the roster! Especially if it keeps Kitty away from the car crash that is the X-Men books at the moment. I just [...]

    7. It's a good lineup, and there's some good scenes. Adding Kitty Pryde and Ben Grimm as (apparently) permanent, full-time members of the team works a lot better than I had initially thought it would. Though in retrospect, I should have realized that Ben would fit in this group pretty nicely, and that he'd jump at the opportunity to work in space. I could really love this book, with these characters.But the story just wasn't that great. In fact, it was way too much like Guardians of Knowhere, the S [...]

    8. It's clobberin' time In space.Adding The Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing to the Guardians line-up was a great idea, but Kitty seemed really out of character for me and storyline is just the same of "Guardians of Knowhere" Secret Wars tie-in.(view spoiler)[Can't wait to read more about the Brood/Annihilus plot.!

    9. This was a newer Guardians of the Galaxy than the one I am used too. Star Lord has become King of Spartax. The new GoG has a female Star Lord (Kitty Pryde), Drax, Rocket Racoon, Groot, Venom, and the Thing. Did someone kill the FF? Does anybody care? Not me. I won't spoil the plot- but this was a fun read. Bendis, when at his peak, writes a very fun and exciting story. Full or dry humor and moments that make me chuckle, I truly enjoyed Bendis' Guardians. This is what the Guardians should be all [...]

    10. Well, that was a thing that I've read. On one hand, this volume clearly is more coherent than Bendis's infamously terrible previous Guardians run. On the other hand, there is still not much of a story at all.The setup is weird and is left completely unexplained — for some reason, Kitty Pryde is the new Star Lord. Ben Grimm is a member of the team now. Rocket is the leader. Gamora is gone somewhere. I am fine with all of these choices, but at least give us some backstory, Bendis! How did this a [...]

    11. [Read as single issues]I think it's indicative of the quality of this story that I can't remember what happened in most of it. That's never a good sign.From what I do remember, this volume follows up on the eight month Secret Wars gap that sees Peter as Emperor of Spartax after his father J'Son gets dethroned during the Black Vortex. Of course, that lasts about as long as anything at Marvel these days, and by the end of these five issues he's back with the Guardians doing his usual Star-Lord stu [...]

    12. „Пазители на галактиката: Император Куил” – първи том от поредицата “Guardians of the Galaxy: New Guard” е прецедент за родния комикс пазар! Вместо да получим отделни броеве по веднъж на месец, от „Студио Арт Лайн” сбъднаха една дългогодишна мечта на комикс феновете у нас и издадоха к [...]

    13. Fun but not great. I will probably continue because I'm a sucker for Kitty Pride and Drax.

    14. This new volume has a lot of the same problems the previous volumes have had, the character work is sub par and the ongoing narrative is just lacking. That said I think the first four issues that focus on the battle between Hala the Accuser and the Guardians is at least pretty entertaining and gorgeously illustrated by Schiti. If I was judging this volume just on that it might rank a little higher just based on the fun factor, but then the final issue rolls in and the entire narrative completely [...]

    15. I love the Guardians of the Galaxy and have done since the last Vol. 1. This volume is sadly the worst of the current run. Now I'm not complaining about the All-New, All-Different thing. Things haven't really changed that much for the Guardians. Kitty Pryde has joined the team permanently but she was popping up a lot anyway thanks to her relationship with Quill. Kitty is perhaps even more awesome in space than she is on Earth. Also joining the team is Thing from the Fantastic Four, although quit [...]

    16. Kitty Pride and The Thing are now part of the Guardians and Peter Quill is Emperor of Spartax. I guess this all happened off page after Secret Wars. The last Kree Accuser comes to Spartax for vengeance for the destruction of Hala. You would think this would be exciting but Bendis phones this one in. Very little of Bendis's trademark spot-on dialogue here. Let's hope there is more to the next volume.

    17. I have no idea what I'm hopping into here. This is my first adventure with a Guardians of the Galaxy comic that is not from Secret Wars and now I'm I don't know. Loving it, that's for sure, so that's good!

    18. Another fun romp with the Gs of the G.Though the ol' team on the verge of breaking up routine does become a lil old sometimes,

    19. Still fun Guardians that all talk like Spider-Man, but maybe some of the story beats could have made a bit more sense?

    20. It has been a minute since I have read anything from the Guardians of the Galaxy series. I have , however, read everything I could from writer Brian Michael Bendis. I am not sure I would have picked up this book if his name wasn't on it. While I love the Guardians crew, especially Rocket, they just haven't evolved much since they first come out in the original comics I read when I was much younger. This book, Emperor Quill, gives them a different look with the same of action and humor fans new a [...]

    21. Bendis' Guardians of the Galaxy has long been mediocre, but I had hope for this new volume, with its focus on galactic politics. The Kree Empire has fallen, a new Emperor of Spartax has risen, and this is all about to come into conflict.Sadly, Bendis' answer to these interesting space politics is to have a big four-issue-long fight. It's five issues long if you include the Secret Wars issue where they fought this same lady, but without any context. It's excruciating, and then Bendis decides to t [...]

    22. Loved the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference!! HahaPeter Quill is the emperor of the planet Spartax? WhatttttSpartax is being attacked by a Kree warrior because Peter's dad destroyed the Kree planet. Gamora gets badly hurt trying to fight her off. The Guardians, with the help from some friends from Earth fight of the Spartax warrior. Then suddenly another bad guy shows up, Yotat the destroyer. He is pissed because Drax and some of the group got Yotat arrested while they were on "Knowhere [...]

    23. GOTG shows such little respect for the conventions of traditional comic-fare, lampooning its own storytelling and undercutting the narration with silly jokes that make the otherwise rather pedestrian story com to life. Full of amusing references (Douglas Adams; Laika) it elevates itself a long way above the boom-blast of things like the anodyne Avengers through its telling.Added to the team, needlessly really, are The Thing (similar vibe to the team), Venom (doesn't do much) and the divine Kitty [...]

    24. What's missing from the GotG movies as they exist now? The rich history of Marvel's space-going and spacebound species, with their conflicts inherent, AND, the Thing, Kitty Pryde, and Agent Venom. Just add that stuff in, James Gunn. Good job. This volume makes you realize that when Drax is the muscle and Rocket is the mouth, Ben Grimm is the heart, and Kitty's the brain. Several great small and equally great epic moments in this - everyone's a badass, and the whole galaxy's invited. Loved it, an [...]

    25. It seems like this happens right after Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black Vortex, but with Marvel Comics you can never really tellAnyway, how come Peter can't keep things on his planet under control for a single volume? Because that would be boring! So here we have random attacks ruining things under Peter's watch. It is fun if you can just stop asking yourself how two new people joined the Guardians (The Thing and Venom - it's not unusual at all for people to just show up).I'm a fan [...]

    26. Bendis is an excellent writer of dialogue for this disparate group of hero-ish characters. The plot of Emperor Quill, though, feels like someone higher up in the Marvel echelons said, "Wait a minute, we can't have Star Lord not be a part of the Guardians of the Galaxy!" Thus, here we are, with the new Guardians rushing off to Spartax to make sure Quill loses his job as emperor. The story is enjoyable and the art is splendid, but it all makes the ending of the previous series feel a little retcon [...]

    27. This was a great first guardians of the galaxy comic for me. It had great illustrations and a lot of funny moments. The only thing that kind of threw me off was the array of new characters. I don't know if some of these characters get introduced into other (series?) of guardians comics, but I was confused to see Kitty (don't know her) and Venom (why is he there) and Ben (uhhhh?). I think this mostly has to do with my need to read a different comic series before I continue on with this one, but f [...]
