"These two collections reflect what made Marvel so fine back in the day. The story of the Guardians unfolded over time slowly and in a meandering way, touching first one port of call then another over the years as we learned more and more about these fascinating characters. They became increasingly woven into the larger fabric that was the sprawling Marvel Universe, but in a manner which seemed natural and less contrived somehow that what we chance upon these days with persistent events dominating the flow of the storytelling." -- Rip Jagger
"To truly get the full Guardians experience, starting with their metaphorical 'season one,' you have to start here. If you're a fan of space opera or classic comic book storytelling, you'll enjoy reading these cosmic adventures from some of the medium's biggest creators." -- Brett White
