In the wake of devastation caused by the "Annihilation Wave", the galaxy is in turmoil and easy prey for another attack. And the evil techno race known as The Phalanx are more than happy to oblige. On one front is Moondragon and Phyla-Vell, daughter of Captain Mar-Vell and the new Quasar.
Also entering the fray are some of Marvels classic cosmic characters assembled by the Kree to stave off the Phalanx invasion. This eclectic group of Bronze Age cosmic veterans includes Starlord, Mantis, Rocket Raccoon, Captain Universe, the Space Knights and Groot, the giant talking tree from Planet X. Also turning up after a long absence is Adam Warlock. Together they take on the Phalanx and those the Phalanx now control, including an army of near indestructible "Sentries" and The Super Adaptoid.
The "Starlord" segment by Keith Giffen is one of the coolest stories I have read in some thirty years of reading comics. Regardless of how familiar one is with the characters is irrelevant. This is a very entertaining read. However, if you, like me have been reading comics since the early 70s, you'll be very happy to see these characters again and the story will be even more rewarding.
Forget Civil War, forget World War Hulk, forget Secret Invasion and forget the death of Captain America. Marvels cosmic epics are where the real action is. A lot of fun. Highly recommended.
If you are not a fan it is still highly entertaining as we see the pieces come together for an even bigger event in book 2.
This is a must have book series for anyone and a great starting point for anyone who wants to get into the Guardians of the Galaxy.
