Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Collects Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Prelude # 1 & 2, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Infinite Comic #1, Iron Man (1968) #55, Strange Tales (1951) #181, Incredible Hulk (1968) #271, and materials from Tales to Astonish (1959) #13 and Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1 (2013). Since it's a collection, the artwork and writing vary, but it serves as a good introduction to the history of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic universe. Fans of the movie may be better served buying just the Prelude issues separately unless they want to get into the comic universe.

A nice collection for obsessive-compulsive collectors of 'first character appearances' but does NOT contain the 'material from Marvel Preview 4' (as stated in Amazon's description) where Peter Quill made his debut. So someplace between the promo material and the actual book production, that got cut. Still, fun to read and juxtapose the newer stuff against what these characters were like the first time around.

Format: Paperback
This collects some new comics made specifically for the movie tie-in, followed by the original appearances of most of the GotG, and a reprint of the first of the GotG reboot. It's good that no one used these to pitch the movie, or it would have been filed next to the bad ideas in a giant warehouse like Howard the Duck 2 and the Ark of the Covenant.

The writing and art in the tie-in don't have the same attention to detail that the other new book have. The original appearances are fascinating, but I'm not sure they're worth actually seeking out. Unless you like bizarro, because the Rocket Raccoon comic has that in spades. Considering these rough beginnings, it's even more of a marvel the movie was made in the first place.
