Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1: Review (Comic)

Following the massive success of the Avenger Movie it came as no surprise that Marvel hoped to continue their success. What did surprise many was when they announced their intentions to produce a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. In an effort to re-introduce the team originally created in 1969 Marvel has taken the necessary step of rebootingGuardians of the Galaxy in order to re-introduce this galactic police force to modern readers. Though there were a number of iterations in the evolution of this team, Marvel has chosen to continue with pre-existing Guardians.
Where better to start the the reintroduction of this team than its centerpiece, the leader, Star-Lord. As writer, Brian Michael Bendis has taken some of the basic background story and updated it for new readers. This new story has the same basics, but rather than the more controversial beginnings Peter Quill’s life has a more acceptable if still violent start. Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1 begins with a the crashing husk of what was a spacecraft. Through the good nature and happenstance the occupant of the craft is saved. This is where J’Son of the royal bloodline of Spartax meets the earthling Meredith Quill.
