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.
