Rated 4 out of 5 by from Darker Than I Expected It's been awhile since I last read anything featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy. The new series is considerably darker and less snarky than I was expected - though Rocket is still definitely Rocket. That said, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1: Cosmic Avengers is a great ride.

The art (in the four regular issues collected here) is, perhaps, a bit too slick, but gorgeous, with very dynamic layouts and tight finishes. The shorts that introduce Drax, Gamora, Groot and Rocket are both simpler and rougher in design and, somehow, considerably more kinetic.
