Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I bought Guardians of the Galaxy #5. I bought it for the Gaiman content, but he's been downgraded from co-writer to consultant, and if there was any Gaiman content in this it doesn't show. Angela has all of about two lines of dialogue in this.

On its own, this is... bad. The final four or five pages are pretty impressive, as Bendis write a conversation between two characters we can't see on the other side of the galaxy while Pichelli draws Gamora and Angela beating the shit out of each on the Moon. And the cliffhanger is really good and has some relevance to the upcoming Infinity. But getting to that point is a lot of character moments that don't do anything to drive the plot. It's superficial.

If you're reading the series, maybe you'll enjoy this. If you're not already reading the series and were curious about the Gaiman factor, you can safely skip this.
