*Book source ~ Library Ok, so I’ve never seen the movie and I’ve never read any of the comics. Now, I’ve watched other Marvel movies, so I have an idea who Thanos is and the gems. But everything else is new to me. I don’t know who all the players are like Nebula, Gamora, Tivan and someone named Ronan, but I’m sure it’ll come together eventually. I only enjoyed 3 of the 7 offerings in this volume. That includes story and artwork. For Prelude 1 & 2 and the last one, Dangerous Prey, I give 5’s to story and artwork. I love the artwork so much! It’s gorgeous! I can’t stand the artwork for the middle stories (Beware the Blood Brothers, The Power of Warlock, Rocket Raccoon and the Groot one) and the plots are meh. I can’t even tell what the actual titles are because there’s stuff written everywhere. They’re confusing and the artwork is too garish, simplistic, busy and comic-booky. Blerg.

I confess – I have not seen the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie yet. However, I remember the original team when they were first created in the comics back in the mid-70s. Since then, the entire lineup has been replaced with other Marvel characters. Someone at Marvel got the idea to provide an introduction to the members of the team by reprinting the original and/or early appearances of the characters in one volume. Great idea. Except – some of those stories are part of a larger tale, and lack clarity when taken out of context. Others … well, they're simply not the finest examples of comic book storytelling. As such, this feels like little more than a money-grab by the accounting and finance staff at the company rather than a true artistic endeavor. Thank goodness that a couple of the stories, especially Starlord's origin, were well done and entertaining and self-contained. RATING: 2 1/2 stars, rounded down to 2 stars.
