Format: Paperback
This collection contains issues #13-25, the conclusion of the famed DnA run of the Guardians.

This picks right up where the other complete collection left off as this twenty five issue run of Marvel Cosmic greatness comes to a thrilling end. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning deliver big time along with artists Brad Walker and Wes Craig. I never thought I would get so invested in characters I knew so little, or had the slightest care for before, such as Moondragon, Phyla-Vell, Bug, Jack Flag, and Major Victory. Each get more opportunity to shine and grow on you, if you are some one like me and just was introduced to them in the previous volume. I am sure long time Marvel Cosmic fans will appreciate their portrayals as well. And, to really make the cast huge, Peter Quill a.k.a. Starlord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Mantis, Gamora, Drax, Cosmo, and the awesome Adam Warlock still get their time to shine and just rock in this wonderful space and time crashing epic.

Things start off with a bang as the Guardians are smack dab in the middle of the War of Kings between Emperor Vulcan of the Shi'ar and King Blackbolt and the Kree. The group try and talk reason to both sides as they fight to prevent Warlock's sense that a tear in space-time will result from this conflict. Meanwhile, some members are thrown into the future, futures, by the enigmatic Starhawk as they find just how perilous the tear can be.

Things really heat up as one member of the Guardians betrays the others, after being betrayed (the drama is executed so well here!), and lays out the rest of the team in highlight real fashion. Wow. And that pesky Universal Church of Truth keeps poking around and wanting that tear to happen and all that comes from it upon the universe...

I never picked this up when it was individual issues years ago, and now I'm sort of glad I waited. The writing here is fantastic, and the only way to describe this volume is "thrill ride". Every issue ends on a cliff-hanger that forces you to keep reading and if I'd had to wait a month between issues it would have been frustrating.

This volume has almost everything, including more versions of the Guardians of the Galaxy than you realize were out there as our heroes end up time-traveling and dimension-hopping at one point (always a fun formula for a cosmic comic). At one point halfway through the book, the line-up changes dramatically and it only adds to the book's appeal.

You can easily see why a movie was made about these guys when you read this. The commentary between Rocket and Star-Lord is witty and sometimes hilarious, and the heroes constantly seem to be thrown in situations way over their head...while still finding a way to come out of it victorious (but often at a cost). If you are a fan of the cosmic Marvel stuff, grab the first volume of this collection and go from there.

Roll call: Starlord, Drax, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Bug, Moondragaon, Phyla-Vel, Mantis, Astro, Adam Warlock, Jack Flagg, the original iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, alternate timeline versions of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and a whole fleet of Starhawks. Er, I might've missed a few.

This huge cast of characters is involved in two main storylines throughout these twelve issues the first being the War of Kings (the Shi'ar battling the Kree essentially) and the second a convoluted storyline concerning the Dark Magus and, ultimately, the return of the mad Titan Thanos. It's cosmic fun and edge of your seat giddiness as the Guardians time and space travel from one edge of your seat moment to the next. Lots of cosmic characters are thrown at us, the Guardians always at a disadvantage, and some humor is thrown in along the way.

Great story arc. Too bad the series was cancelled.

I love the characters, and I love the art style. Little jarring without the Annihilation series, which is supposed to provide context for all of this.

I know these stories were originally divided into several volumes, but it's almost more satisfying having them collected this way. Think of the first volume as the rising action. Things really kick off in this second volume, tying up threads from part one.

You can pick-up with the Guardians team even if you haven't read Annihilation, Conquest, etc. The characters have been established at this point and the stakes are clear as daylight.

We're dropped right in the midst of the War of Kings, which is reflected in the quick pacing. I would recommend doing some research on the War of Kings before hand, or picking up the collected edition. There's a nice "previously..." section, but it only scratches the surface. Definitely check out some backstory on Vulcan, the Inhumans (Secret Invasion), and so on. I'm a huge fan of cosmic Marvel and DnA. This is a gripping masterpiece.

Great second volume that completes the Dan Abnett series, issue 13-25. If you want to see the basis for the movie, buy this book. You must pick up the first volume to understand what is going on though.
