about

Award-winning comic-book creator Brian Michael Bendis is one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics today. He has helmed a renaissance for Marvel's popular Avengers franchise, writing every issue of New Avengers and launching Avengers, Mighty Avengers and Dark Avengers. He has also written the event projects House of M, Secret War, Secret Invasion and Siege. Bendis is one of the architects of Marvel's Ultimate line of comics, having written every issue of Ultimate Spider-Man since its launch in 1999, as well as Ultimate Fantastic Four, Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, Ultimate Origin, Ultimate Six and the Ultimate Enemy trilogy. The introduction of multiracial Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales made USA Today's front page and went on to become a hotbed topic on Fox News, CNN, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Howard Stern Show and more. Bendis' creator-owned projects include Scarlet with Alex Maleev, Brilliant with Mark Bagley, the Eisner Award-winning Powers with Mike Oeming and the Hollywood tell-all Fortune and Glory. Bendis is also the creator of Image Comics' Jinx line of crime comics, which has spawned the graphic novels Goldfish, Fire, Jinx and Torso with Marc Andreyko, and Total Sell Out. Sony and FX have completed principal photography on the pilot for Powers with Bendis as executive producer, and he's adapting Fire for Universal Pictures as a starring vehicle for Zac Efron. Bendis is also a writer and consulting producer for the Disney XD series Ultimate Spider-Man. As a member of Marvel Studios' Creative Committee, he has consulted on the films Iron Man and Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor, and Marvel's The Avengers. He is head writer of the massive multiplayer online game Marvel Universe for Marvel and Gazillion games.

Artist Steve McNiven parlayed a chance trip to the San Diego Comic-Con into a position at CrossGen Comics, where he quickly earned a regular assignment on Meridian. When CrossGen ceased publishing, McNiven moved on to Marvel Knights 4 with writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Next, he joined Warren Ellis on Ultimate Secret. In 2006, McNiven and Mark Millar shattered the Marvel Universe's status quo in Civil War. His next assignments included Brian Michael Bendis' New Avengers and the initial story arc of Amazing Spider-Man's "Brand New Day" era. McNiven and Millar reteamed for "Old Man Logan" in Wolverine and the creator-owned Nemesis, published under the Marvel Icon imprint. With Ed Brubaker, McNiven helped relaunch Captain America.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good start to the series, beautiful art This is a good place to start reading GOTG as it catches you up with Peter Quill and introduces the other characters well. The art is definitely the highlight and this is one of Marvel's better looking books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great place to start if you loved the movie! Great introduction to these characters for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course this series began well before the movie released, so today's readers probably don't need the same kind of introduction to the characters, but at the time having Iron Man join up with the team for the first arc was a perfect way to transition readers who might be familiar with the more Earth-bound Avengers characters into the Marvel Cosmic Universe. Brian Michael Bendis is my favourite comic author, and I am enjoying seeing what he has in store for these characters.

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. Writer Brian Michael Bendis definitely understands these characters and their dynamic within the group. The action is fast-paced; the characters beats firmly establish the group as individuals and members of a group. 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. Overall, GotG: Vol. 1 : Cosmic Avengers warrants a letter grade of A-
