Loving this series
All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy (2017-) #2 - Gerry Duggan,Aaron Kuder

The Guardians first theft was a test for the second, more important, theft.  Then again, when someone wants you to steal from the collection of an immortal - a Celestial named the Collector - you know things might go sideways.   I mean, he named after himself after his hoarding obsession!   You know you're a hoarder when collecting isn't just the thing you do, it's so much a part of you, it's your name.   

 

And The Collector isn't your run-of-the-mill hoarder.   He only collects the good stuff.   The one-of-a-kind stuff.   And he's super serious about keeping that shit in his collection.   He doesn't just have a space-museum, oh, no.   The rooms can shift around.  He has robots and horrors as safety, as well as a buttload of mines.   And not just one kind of mine.   Some blow up if an organic being shows up nearby.   Some... I forget all the kinds, or even the others, because the organic-sensor mines stood out most.    But Rocket listed off a whole bunch of kinds. 

 

Drax still won't fight, which everyone figures he might have to.  In fact, when he kills someone, he screams at them that it's their own fault, he tried not to fight them, and he won't accept that guilt on his conscience, nope, not him. 

 

Gamora, however, is willing to murder everyone who gets close to her.  Robot, not a robot, whatever, all the same to her.   She also has a side deal with the buyer, as far as I can tell.   Rocket is pretty much the same, while Groot is tiny. And The Collector is... far huger than I remember, but hey, Celestial.   I'm willing to go with it, especially if the Guardians come out of this okay.

That Rocket and Groot moment gave me all the feels.

Mention of Inhumans.   Yay!   I think I'm going to be rude and read through my group dinner which I never enjoy.   The woman who bitches at me and others is snapping at my friend because she's bitching about something then getting snotty about him commenting on her rants.

 

The Guardians should get me through this.

Very nice start
All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy (2017-) #1 - Gerry Duggan,Aaron Kuder

This isn't quite what I expected: a little more of the ambiguous morality, a little more of the movie than I've been used to seeing in the comics.   (And don't get me wrong: the movies have influenced the comics, but there was still a more different feel.   This feels like it's becoming even more like the movie.   Then again, I loved the first movie, so I have no complaints here.)

 

The Guardians are gathered together despite their split, because a buyer wants them together and is offering enough money to make it worth their while.   Drax, now a pacifist, refuses to fight anything living.   (Walls are okay, although he warns that they can't foresee all the consequences.)   Groot is tiny, and is unable to grow at a proper speed, or regenerate his limbs.   Star-Lord, Gamora and Rocket seem pretty much the same, although Gamora refuses to talk about what's clearly bothering her.   (Although I feel that she's not open with this at the best of times so...)

 

They need to steal something from the most impenetrable building ever built.   They build a faux Galactus and terrorize everyone as a distraction, until people start to realize the world isn't about to be devoured.   

 

And then when they meet the buyer, well, I wasn't quite prepared for him or why he'd had them steal this item.   I'm eager to see where this goes, though, since they're going to stay together, at least for a little while longer.

Nope, can't do it
Guardians of the Galaxy (2015-) #19 - Brian Bendis,Valerio Schiti,Arthur Adams

Even with Gerry Duggan writing the next GotG series, I'm burnt out.   I will most likely pick up the series on sale at some point - digitally and issues or volume one - but I will most likely have to read Rocket and I Am Groot to get it all.   But mostly, I'm tired of series that last twenty issues then get rebooted.   Why?   I know that DC just did this, bt they also rebooted the world in a way that makes me think they are in this for the long haul.   

 

I'm tired of having to re-up my subscriptions all the time.   I'm tired of them dragging teams like this so there are six character titles and a main title.   (And the GotG is going to ship twice a month, from what I understand, so eight bucks each month.   Royals and Black Bolt may be the same, but, ugh, my Inhumans addiction!   Plus that's only two titles, as I have yet to decide if I'll indulge in Secret Warriors. I may have to because having Moon Girl, Devil Dinosaur - who is going to do dinosaur stuff according to the people who are creating this - and Ms. Marvel in the same title may prove too tempting for me!)

 

I'm dropping all things Guardians for the time being.   And I may indulge from time to time: the new movie, the coloring book, but I need to bow out for now.  I may drop Deadpool if Duggan drops that, and I don't like the new writer.   I'm just really worried about Secret Empire now that all this is starting.   I'd much prefer longer lasting series, but... it's not happening.
